#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.

Geiserich (3387) - Linz, AUSTRIA - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle: Pours dark reddy brown with an off-white head. Aroma with intensive citrus notes, lemon peel, oranges and lemongrass.. Some maltiness and roasted malt. Flavor is malty, sweetish, light alcoholic with raisins and toffee, followed by fruitiness of oranges. Hops in the end with mainly resin, herbs and bitter hops. Alcohol very well hidden and very tasty.

Kellemes meglepetés volt, mert gyengébb összhatásra számítottam. Nekem ízlett: kellemes aroma, szép sötét szín.

It is again a big nothing from Brwedog. Pure head and aromas like nothing. Yoy feel overall the alcohol. This beer doesn’t hint at strongness it is pure alcohol. Palate is bad like a shoot in the beer. I don’t like it and I wouldn’t suggest to prove.
