COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

greenclansman (826) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - JUL 5, 2014
Reddish color, caramel aromas, hoppy aftertaste. A very balanced amber beer, with significant amount of hops. Nice one.

TET (1693) - 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.

Idiosynkrasie (3929) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2014
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.

jonnyguns (1002) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a muddled brown with a small beige head. Nose is really hop driven. Pine, orange, citrus and some light caramel. Taste is bitter pine hops, citrus, and a toffee like almost smokey finish. Solid beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
