#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.

Fules (826) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 14, 2016
Közepes hab, vörösbe hajló barna szín. Illata jellegzetesen brewdogos alappal rendelkezik, de kiegészül egy kis dohos, vörösborra emlékeztető jeggyel. Íze komlós, kesernyés, kissé citrusos-narancsos, pörkölt mellékízzel. Feltűnik benne a citrushéj is, de csak jelzés értékűen. Utóíze hosszú, kesernyés, ami a citrushéjból és a komlóból közösen ered. Határozottan testes sör.

Cunningham (7048) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2016
A bit to sweet for my likings. Anyway a decent evening sipper.
Dark amber color with a fine tan head. Ok lacing. Full body and a smooth carbonation. A bit sweet, but still a decent bitterness. Oily texture. Bready, hoppy, fruity, yeast, some spices and toffee in the flavor.
[Bottle from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge in Oslo, Norway]

daje (4123) - NORWAY - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle, february 20th 2015. Dark amber body with a small beige head. Aroma is hoppy of pine and grapefruit, with toast and dark berries. Taste is dry and bitter, yet with a nice burned caramel taste, with fruity hops towards the end. Light alcohol sting with a sweet fruit aftertaste. Not bad!

Muggus69 (2137) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2016
330mL bottle from Beer Cartel. Deep copper body, pours a thin beige head. Aroma quite rich - dark toffee, treacle, oxidised honey & sultana, earthy cooked citrus hop character. Lovely chewy resiny body, smooth, moderate slightly creamy carbonation. Body has a good solid luscious toffee, chewy biscuity malt backbone, hint of cocoa & raisin, lots of dark citrus, and earthy hops. Plenty of bitterness, lingering finish with some warmth. Age has no wearied this brew - held up nicely and developed some lovely undertones.

ruigo (2383) - PORTUGAL - JAN 4, 2016
33cl bottle. Slightly hazy amber colour with a thin off-white head. Fair retention. Caramel, roasted, citrus, red fruits, vanilla and light spices in the aroma. Soft carbonation and medium to full body. Taste is sweet with some spicy and citrus notes. Overall, a strange but good beer.

Ascelja (951) - 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.

Bičre de couleur ambrée assez foncé avec des reflets rubis, la mousse est de couleur marron clair et se dissipe peu ŕ 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 sčche... elle rappe un peu le palais, elle va avoir une amertume assez franche, on va ętre sur des saveurs un peu boisé et amčre.
