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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep mahogany, small off white head, no lacing. Very pleasant well balanced aroma of toffee and citrus hops. Taste is also extremely well balanced, more of the imperial red ale than an American strong ale. Finish is bitter and hoppy.

lusikka (6032) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber brown colour with a big thick head. Aroma of citrusy hops, herbs and resin. Quite rich flavour of malts, citrusy bitterness, orange pith, resin, chewy grapefruity notes, caramel and red berries. Really fresh herbal notes and some pine too. Full bodied. Very nicely balanced. Finishes warming and intensenly bitter. Quite heavy and jam-like too. Great stuff!

#55 BrewDog. 33 cl. bottle sampled @ Barley Legal Tasting Room. Thanks to Kraddel! Dark ruby with a tanned head. Nose is very bitter BrewDog herbal hops, bitter grainy malts & dark bread, bitter berries. Taste is berries, very bitter bread, lot of bitter peel & typical BrewDog very bitter floral hops in the finish. Nothing bad but despite all of the endless added ingredients this just tastes like yet another BrewDog beer that differs little from all of their other stuff.
