Keg & Bottle conditioned; Regular. Has been seen on Cask.

A delicious, refreshing red ale. It brings together a range of 6 specialty malts and New World hops. This creates a characterful ale with a toffee, caramel and dark fruit palate, finishing with soft piney, resinous hop notes.

Hanoi (462) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2014
Nose leads with tropical fruits, dropping into rich caramel and red berries. Taste is pine, caramel and toffee, red berries, orange zest resin and malty finish with a very light hint of smoke. Mouthfeel is very full. Very good beer with real depth.

Deep, brick red slightly cloudy pour with a cream, thick head. Aroma - caramel, fruity, berries, pine. Taste is caramel initially, slightly sweet but that fades quickly. Citrus, floral, toffee flavours and pine, fairly bitter finish. Bloody good and moreish.

Bottle from Lion’s Den, Yarm. Pours ruby with a cream head. Loads of juicy red fruit flavour initially before a bitter pine hop finish. Stacks of flavour. Very enjoyable and refreshing. Top notch.

TET (1764) - FINLAND - JUN 29, 2014
A red brown beer with a medium and blond head. The nose is slightly caramelly, wet wood, some fruits. Taste is quite strongly bitter that is nicely balanced with caramelly malts, wood, slightly herbal end. Medium bodied, mild carbonation. Good balance but more fresh fruits would be needed.

330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, brown-ish deep red colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Minimally soapy, grainy aroma, hints of red berries, an earthy touch. Taste is hoppy with moderately sweet malty background, some husk, fruity hints of orange, mandarine, a piney touch. Nice.
