COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

#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.

sebletitje (6859) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2014
Bouteille 33cl, batch# 157, BB 27/05/2015. Cuivrée, col fin crémeux blanc cassé. Arôme de pin-houblonné, malté rétro rappelant les agrumes avec un prononcé de grains frais concassés. Palais est malté, crystal? pâle sur un léger côté bready. Le houblon perce en fin de bouche ajoutant une amertume modéré avec un petit rappel d’anis et pamplemousse. Le tout est sec, légèrement grillé.

sharkydodson (293) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - NOV 22, 2014
the aroma of citrus and flowers with hints of pine needles and spicy herbs... the taste is very rough... orange, tropical fruits, pine and toffee... bright hoppy bitterness... sweet and bitter aftertaste... nice strong ale...

Kita (1164) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy amber brown color with thin creamy tan-like head and poor lacing. Aroma of lemon, orange, berries and caramel. Taste starts with refreshing lemon and orange, but it gets quickly predominated by sweet and rich maltiness, mildly roasted, with spicy warming mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Feels strong, although alcohol is well hidden...

CroftyCuts (7) - - NOV 17, 2014 does not count
Bottle. Pours dark, Crimson red, moderate head that dissipates quite quickly. Aroma is almost sour with resin and malt lurking in the background. Flavour..it's almost as though someone has hidden some lemon zest in a block of dark chocolate..or something. I don't know how to describe it really but it is delicious. God damn you, red ales, you get me every time!

Buongiorgio00 (868) - - NOV 15, 2014
Un’originale versione di imperial red ale, interessante e ricca di sfumature diverse che vanno dal citrico, all’amaro, fino alle ampie note caramellate che accompagnano la bevuta.

radzik5555 (427) - Gdynia, POLAND - NOV 12, 2014
Butelka 0.33L.
Wygląd: Rubinowe, klarowne z iskrą. Beżowa obfita piana. Drobno i średniopęcherzykowa. Opada dość szybko, lekko znacząc szkło.
Aromat: Bardzo przyjemny chmielowy, zwłaszcza dojrzałe owoce, melon, marakuja, papaja i czerwony grejpfrut, lekko tytoniowy, żywiczny, skarpeta, przypalony cukier oraz czerwone kwaśne owoce.
Smak: Dużo cytrusów, grejpfrut przede wszystkim, cytryna. Początek słodki ale po chwili pojawia się przyjemna kwaskowość połączona z goryczką grejpfrutową. Lekko alkoholowe, likier owocowy.
Odczucie: Ciało średnie do wysokiego, wysycenie niskie do średniego, faktura oleista.
Całość: Bardzo dobre, dość nietypowe, fajnie złożone, słodkie, kwaśne i gorzkie naraz. Przyjemnie ewoluuje smak w ustach przy każdym łyku.
