Beautiful deep amber colour. Mid-sized, dense head. Caramel, toffee, butter and hop aroma. Flavour has some vague caramel notes but they are soon overpowered by a raw and agressive hop bitterness. Pretty good, a bit unrefined though.

Pours a nice translucent light red, nice one finger head. Smells like red berries, sweet, strawberry-ish maybe. Nice mouthfeel with perfect carbonation (although not good head retention). Flavours of strawberries, the nelson hop really stands out, tastes REALLY good. it’s also got a nice malty backbone to it.
