3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Many times in bottle and most recently at the White Horse on Cask (March 2011). It pours amber, with a decent, fluffy off-white head. The nose is caramel malt, citrus fruits, grass and some floral. The taste is sweet caramel, toasted malt, biscuit, grass, earth and some citrus, with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Ok, but not up to the other Brewdog offerings.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper red in colour with a thin white head. Rich fruity aroma laced with caramel. Pale malts give a fiery chewy base of moist maltloaf with rich berry fruits and a hint of butterscotch. Peppery hop resins add a bitter bite to the aftertaste. Finish is dry and woody with tart redcurrant fruit evident. A powerful ruby ale and tastes stronger than the 5% suggests. Well recommended.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml bottle from Pick’s poured into an English Pint. Bottle expired 6/6/2009. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a small bit of white head. Aroma of citrus and some sort of berry. Taste is very lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Taste of biscuit malt and blueberry. Light bodied with a thin texture, flat carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, not bad for my first Brewdog. Something I’m glad I tried but won’t be drinking again.

Nice, fat white head on a crimson brew.
Intense and complicated aroma. Some oak notes.
Great taste. Not as good as some other red/amber ales. Nice caramel and roasted malty goodness.
Feels thicker than 5%. Not a bad thing, just not expected. The malt sticks around with a citus finish.
Good beer. I rarely buy beer twice (there’s just too many to try!), and this one of those. Glad I tried it, liked it, but not so much that I’d have it again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Süßer, honigartiger ausbalancierter Geruch, etwas fruchtig. Sehr hopfiger Antrunk, leicht süßer Hopfen mit entsprechender Bittereinheit, dies wirkt sehr interessant. Vollmundig, im Nachgeschmack bitter-würzig, langer hopfiger Abgang.

22nd October 2007
Warning! Early amateur rating! Starts with crisp malts but then blooms in to quite a bitter-hop beer. Subtle smoky note. Okay.

In bottiglia da 33 d’asporto dal Polli. Bottiglia con qualche problema (non rifermentata?), birra completamente ferma, sapore e aroma apparentemente inalterati. Buona e come al solito con un luppolo molto importante.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber color with a slightly off-white head. Aroma of caramel and citrus. Sweet malts flavor up front with caramel and citrus flavors with a crisp hop bite at the end. Excellent lacing for an amber with a creamy mouth feel. Very nice beer.

bottle. from platinum liquor in nth strathfield. pours a deep amber, with a small beige head. caramel aroma, with a slight fruitiness. flavours of lemon, orange and a strong caramel/toffee malt. the malt is definately dominant, but that could be due to the bottle being 2 months out of date. still very drinkable
