2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is sweet with caramel malt and also has plenty of pine - citrus hops. The appearance is hazy amber with a huge head (maybe it is past it’s prime). The taste is dryer than the aroma and a tad bit herbal and papery. The palate is smooth. Overall I am not sure if it is right or not so it’s hard to judge but I am not a fan of this bottle.

Medium strong aroma has bit salty caramel, bread, citrus, pine. Hazy mahogany with short head. Taste is bitter sweet and has also dark fruits. Medium body, bit sticky feel, fizzy carbonation, long bitter finnish. A tasty one to be enjoyed.

Draught @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam.
Nice malty session ale, with modest amount of alcohol. Quite tasty, but tends to get a bit on the bready side after a few. Good starter or second beer.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark red colour with a thinner head when poured. A wonderful aroma full of complex flavours. Some fruit, grapefruit with a hint of sweetness and maybe even coffee(?). Taste is slightly bitter at first, but finishes off really nicely and not too harshly. Would like it to be slightly more flavorful as the aroma suggests, but still a very drinkable red ale!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Btl from Bottleworks. Clear, red-orange pour with a short beige head with good retention and leaving moderate lace. Nose has an early whiff of Simcoe and fruit, but then is mostly pine and roasty malts. Medium-light body with moderate-plus carbonation. Mouth is crisp and full, but not plush. Toast, pine and walnuts; light citrus and caramel. Finish is medium and slightly softer - presumably getting you ready for another swallow. Very sessionable and one I’ll come back to again if I can find it. I’m impressed that it’s so good this far from Scotland.
