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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brisbane Brewhouse. Pours crimson with modest head. The broad malt base is reminiscent of an Irish red, but with a hoppy kick. A most enjoyable brew, but I would like to try it closer to the source.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Kirschfarben mit beständigem weißen Schaum. Leicht malzig und karamellig, aber dominierend ist der fruchtige Hopfen, der zwar bitter, aber nicht zu extrem ist. Das Bier geht fast Richtung IPA. Egal, in welche Schublade man das Bier stecken mag: es schmeckt ;-)

Pours clear, copper-colored. Dappled tan head. Aroma has a lot of citrus and pine. Medium-light body, slightly oily. Bitter-ish. Not quite what I was expecting from an amber aie. Pretty good, though.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy dark amber/brown with mouldy head. Strong aroma of cascade hops (lots of pine) but very little of that comes across in the flavor. Flavor is fresh and hoppy, more like an IPA than a red, quickly finishing with a watery feel.
