#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.

330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.50):
Dark copper amber with a clear body & a 1cm beige, foamy head that fades to half that after about 5 minutes.
Hoppy with resinous pine, strong citrus & orange notes. There’s plenty bitterness with some sweetness (caramel malts mainly) & faint alcohol soon after.

Strong bitterness with pine, grapefruit & citrus taste along with some orange Sweet malts & caramel come through, some alcohol as well.
Smooth, medium body & light-medium carbonation. Some alcohol but very good balance & plenty bitterness.

This one was an excellent Brewdog beer, possibly my favourite of the 70 + beers of theirs I’ve tried. There was an excellent balance & wonderfully hoppy, bitter taste that went down a lot easier than it should have. This is definitely on of their beers that I would love to see brewed on a regular basis, or at least on a semi-regular one; I’ll have to grab another couple of bottles of the stuff before it’s gone forever.

Lively clear red beer with a thin head. Aroma is strong, orangey citrus with a hint of candy-esque sweetness. Flavour is a real blend if things. Orange, sweet malt, caramel, grapefruit and bitter hop cutting through all that for good measure. Leaves a bittersweet taste and it’s got lots of body to it as well. Would go down very nicely on a chilly night.

Bottle Poured into an English Pint glass -- Deep amber color with quickly dissipating white bubbles. Aroma of citrus hops, toffee, and caramel. Flavors that first hit your tongue are a hop bitterness and effervescence that fades into oranges and toffee. Finishes with a slight alcoholic bite. Overall alcohol is hidden well in the taste, but after you finish the bottle you can tell.
