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.

Mars276 (42) - Cracow, POLAND - APR 7, 2015
Kolor: Miedziany. Piwo jest klarowne. Piana: Drobnopęcherzykowa. Niezbyt obfita. Niezbyt trwała. Lacing śladowy. Aromat: Żywica spod której wyłazi odrobina karmelu. Mógłby być bardziej intensywny. Odrobina rozpuszczalnika Smak: Karmel pomieszany z rozpuszczalnikiem. Żywiczne aromaty chmielowe gdzieś się tu gubią. Piwo jest półsłodkie. Lekko grzeje w przełyk - poza tym alkohol jest dobrze schowany. Goryczka co najwyżej średnia, ale za to zalegająca, mało szlachetna. Piwo jest nieprzyjemne w odbiorze. Wysycenie: Średnie - w porządku. Opakowanie: Etykieta niezbyt w moim guście. Brak informacji o chmieleniu, zasypie i użytych drożdżach. Uwagi: Warka ważna do 27-05-2015. Wielkie rozczarowanie. Nie polecam.

Dzhigga (209) - Kirov, RUSSIA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle. Clear ruby-orange color with small unsteady head. Aroma of cranberry, grapefruit, some pepper notes. Taste is medium bitter, some earthy and citrus notes. Finish is long, with nice load of bitterness. 9% ABV can’t be detected in taste or aroma, only by thickness of body. Nice beer!

Smaak start zoetzuur met rode grapefrui, met.een bittertje in de afdronK, alcohol is duidelijk aanwezig mondgevoel is iets dun met een wrange nasmaak. Mwah, niet helemaal mijn bier
