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.

This one is quite a punch. Very rich and intense dark fruits with rich caramel notes. Heavy and thick. I liked it quite a lot.

Turtles (1481) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2016
Keg @ Bishops Arms Hornsgatan. Hazy deep amber, creamy tanned head, good lacing. Caramel aroma with fruity hops, tangerines and orange. Smooth and dry mouthfeel. Great fresh hoppy taste with the malty sweetness, caramel, biscuits, woody notes, bitter orange, grapefruit and dried dark fruit. Very drinkable!

M_Sack (569) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Deep, murky brown, red tinged, cream head, minimal lacing. Aromas of grapefruit and spicy hops backed up with dark brown sugar like malts. Big grapefruit, citrus and stone fruit hop flavours which has a strong malt backbone to pull it together, before finishing with bitter, resinous grapefruit. Delicious beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

juffage (171) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2015
Bottle from work. Clear amber/ruby appearance. Moderate white head. This is OK but not my favourite from Buxton. A little too caramely/sweet and not as citrusy/hoppy/grassy as some US rye IPAs I go nuts for. Orange. Bit of maple syrup? Perfectly fine but I won’t rush out for it again.

jamestulloch (3027) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle from Vino Wines. Clear ruby/amber body with a medium off-white head. No visible carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of Marmite, candy, Black Jacks, roasted malts and dates. Flavour of salted caramel, strawberry syrup, wood, sweet blackcurrant and stewed tea. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Packed full of flavour. Really good.

AshtonMcCobb (4831) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 22, 2015
Bottle from a corner shop. Appearance - deep amber with a red hue. Decent head. Nose - burnt bread, a bit molasses. Taste - burnt again, some rye, Palate - close to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry tangy yetsslightly astringent finish. Overall - a bit gnarly but the challenge is somewhat rewarded.
