2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber to coper coloured ale. Sweet / bitter with lots of caramel, malt and some hops in the taste. You describe it as a malty amber ale, because of the caramel and bread tast. It’s medium bodied, with a dry ending (use of pale ale malt?). The hops aren’t dominating but are present. Nice bitterness but in the end a little too astringent in my opinion. I bought it in Belgium maybe if you can drink it fresh, the hops will cause more balance and the bitterness will be less astringent.

330ml into glass. Lemon/grapefruit nose. Hazy red ale with thin scummy head. Light easy drinking, short hop then malt finish. Every mouthful is preceded by a nose full of citric fruit. Excellent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear amber with a nice, thick, stable off-white head. Beautiful looks. Aroma is floral hoppy with some sugars, caramel and yellow fruits. Something woody as well. Can’t get my fingers behind it. Yet, quite a good nose. Taste is mildly bitter with a nice sweet and hoppy kick. Clear note of the fruits, the sugars, some hidden roastiness as well. Finish is predominantly bitter and dry. Yet there is some sweetnees that overarches pretty well, giving it a nice, refreshing end. Medium bodied and on the thinner side of the palate, Could have been a bit thicker and fuller, yet for the quencher that this brew tends to be, it works out really well. Good brew. Well-balanced, easy to drink quencher for the warmer days.

BB 30/06/15. Poured a hazy coppery red colour with a one-finger light beige foamy head that retained OK and laced poorly. Carbonation high with fine to medium bubbles. Aroma really nice fruits and hops - fresh citrus and hint of pine. Taste of slight sweetness and slight bitterness; unfortunately the nice full aroma does not transfer to the taste. Light body with a thin mouthfeel; not watery. Smooth finish. OK.

Combines the red ale taste with the dry hoppy and citrus flavour of IPA. Easy to drink, but not an average beer.
