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.

juffage (136) - 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 (2336) - 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 (4134) - 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.

Draught. Pours dark ruby red with a mostly lasting soft off white head. Aroma of forest fruits, strawberry, raspberry, blackcurrant, toffee, really fruity aroma. Taste is of red fruits, red fruits, resinous pine, citrus and grassy finish. Medium carbonation, watery to oily mouthfeel. Another good one from Buxton.

Ktwse (2881) - SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2015
I'll be using voice recognition to rate this one. For Stacy Brown with no wind to her. Aroma of caramel fudge like grapefruit. Tastiest coffee better with slight sweet finish. But his life and smooth with soft carbonation.

MayumiH (454) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Draught at Well and Bucket. Caramel malt aroma. Great mix of piney hops and sweet malts with a bitter bite. Splendid :)
