#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.

Une bonne ale qui manque un peu de ’peps’ et d’originalité. Agréable à boire malgré tout.

HammerTroll (480) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 15, 2014
Clear dark brown color with red hue. Small off-white head. Pleasant piney hoppy aroma with caramel. Full body, average carbonation. Spicy and creamy. Tasty, but taste of alcohol is ruins everything.
(Pivoljub 0,33l bottle)

aleksander9 (425) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2014
Deep clear red with creamy tan head. Aroma is tropical fruit, red fruit, roasted malt, sweet caramel and some floral notes. Really slick and fruity palate. Aftertaste is bitter hops, round, caramel and lingering floral notes. Overall: wow! fruity and creamy. Maybe too sweet.

Pelzky (8) - Szczecin, POLAND - SEP 11, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 Bottle poured into teku glass. Deep red color, clear. Small head. Aroma of malts, grass, citrus hops and a hints of a bread and orange. Taste starts with caramel and ends with grassy/resin bitterness with fruitiness in a background. Alcohol is hidden well. Quite good strong ale, very drinkable despite high abv.

Bozo_skeleton (500) - Grenoble, FRANCE - SEP 9, 2014
Robe ruby, carbo moyenne, petit collet de tres fines bulle. Aromes bien caramelise, noisette, et un fond de fruits rouge. Superbe au palais, ronde a souhait, a la fois cremeuse grace aux fine bulles de sa mousse et vive grace a son amertume. Final sur l’alcool et les notes caramel. Une belle réussite

GreatDane1632 (368) - Louisiana, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle Poured into an English Pint glass -- Deep amber color with quickly dissipating white bubbles. Aroma of citrus hops, toffee, and caramel. Flavors that first hit your tongue are a hop bitterness and effervescence that fades into oranges and toffee. Finishes with a slight alcoholic bite. Overall alcohol is hidden well in the taste, but after you finish the bottle you can tell.

Peter_L (749) - SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2014
Tap@Brewdog Bar. Rubinröd vätska. Dofter av citrus, passion och karamell. Fruktig smak med ett ordentligt riv i beskan på slutet. Något vattnig med eldig munkänsla.
