#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.

lord_totenkopf (313) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 23, 2015
Colour is dark amber-reddish, medium light amber head. Aroma of dried orange peel, dried citruses and some hidden, light coffee-like bitterness. The taste opens with malty sweetness, nuts, cereals and some very subtle caramel. Finish is bitter with some chocolate-like notes. Aftertaste brings the hops forward with pine and bitter lemon.

leghorn99 (100) - Livorno, ITALY - MAY 22, 2015
Il colore è marrone con riflessi rossastri, di buona limpidezza; la schiuma non è molta, abbastanza grossolana, ma di buona persistenza. Al naso in evidenza arancia a scorza di limone, succo di lime e lemongrass. Fresche note resinose si fondono con leggeri aromi di malto. Sapore leggermente maltato, con base di melassa, note di caramello; prosegue con un cocktail di frutta, luppolo, erbe e una leggera speziatura. Il corpo è medio-pieno, la carbonazione leggera; gioca molto sul dolce-amaro, finale leggermente sciropposo con un buon pizzico di piccante, resina e luppolo.

Swaroga (1705) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2015
Deep red/brown with medium head. Marachino cherry and pomelo peel in the aroma. Aswell tart and alcohol. The taste is sweet and bitter. Notes are syrup and citrus peel. The rest reminds me of a fruit cake with some spices. The beer is very satisfying with spicy food or on its own.
