#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.

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2015
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, dark amber colour with a short and tanned foamy head. Slightly nutty and syrupy malty aroma with notes of caramel and juicy fruity notes of dark and red berries, accompanied by accents of spices and spruce. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a calm carbonation. Slightly molassy dark malty base with notes of toffee, cough syrup and fruit cocktail, also spicy herbal and slightly resiny hops; sweet-bitter malt-accented and slightly syrupy finish with a good dash of spicy, resiny and subtle fruity hops. The alcohol is deceptively well-hidden. 28.I.15

McWorta (824) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 14, 2015
Clear solidly deep copper red colour with a pillowy dark white-beige head with good lacings. On the nose aromas of cara-red malt, toffee, herbs, orange, orange zest and dried lime peel develop. Softly carbonated, smooth slick texture with a full body. Fruity sweet flavours dominate offering some alcoholaromatic notes with a well pronounced toffeed hop bitterness. Harmonic beer with a lasting finish.
