#Mashtag 2014 - a beer for the people, by the people.
The #Mashtag concept is simple. We invited the public to vote on each aspect of the brew, from hops to malt to the special twist and even the label design, and from the thousands of possibilities this presented, the result is an imperial red ale, brewed with copious speciality malts, a global blend of hops, and blood orange, lemon peel and orange peel.
On the nose, there’s a riot of citrus, in many forms, from orange pith to lemon zest, via lime juice and even lemongrass. Fresh, bright resinous notes blend with light toasty malt aromas.
The palate is intense with toffee, with tiny hints of tobacco smoke coming through in little bursts, but the star attraction is an all-out bitter orange avalanche. A slightly psychotic, orange-that-thinks-it’s-a-grapefruit character builds upon and intensifies the hop bitterness, squaring up against the rich sweet malt base. The result is a huge red ale with a drinkable quality you’d expect in a beer half this strength.

Ascelja (362) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle 0,33l. Brown to ruby body, almost clean, small beige head. Aroma of honey, liqueur, strawberries, bread, some bark. Taste is difficult, mainly sourness what is changing to bitterness. Herbal bitterness in the finish. Very dry. Red berries, especially wild rowanberries (with whole their tartness), herbs, roasted grains, liqueur, strawberries, something honey-like (but absolutely without sweetness). Average full body, soft carbonated.
Well done, but too dry for me.

Bière de couleur ambrée assez foncé avec des reflets rubis, la mousse est de couleur marron clair et se dissipe peu à peu. Au nez on va sentir des arômes de fruits des bois (La Mure) et une certaine acidité. En bouche elle va se trouver peu gazeuse et assez sèche... elle rappe un peu le palais, elle va avoir une amertume assez franche, on va être sur des saveurs un peu boisé et amère.

Hopmaestro (848) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2015
Backlog from lost ÖÖWF2014 notes: Aroma is fruit marmalade with bitter orange peels. Taste is sweet malts, a little strawberry freshness with a sticky syrup sensation. A tad too sweet, but still a fine brew.

Clear red-brown colour. Fresh, fruity aroma with a fair whack of citrus. Despite its strength it is not heavy or sticky. Moderately bitter with plenty of fruity hop flavour.
