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.

Unde (782) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Amber ale with smallish head leaving lots of lacing to the sides of the glass. Aroma has red berries, sweet fruits, caramel malts. Taste is quite sweet at first. There is caramel malts, sweet berries and then dry kick of the hops. Pines and grass hop flavours. Medium body and medium carbonation.

RichardGretton (4574) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Bottle. Brownish beer with a very strong off white head. The aroma is yeasty with some roastedness, and the flavour is very dry and roasted with bags of bitterness. Overall a nice very bitter and dry beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle at home from Buxton taproom. Nose is citric. Body is brown, head is small , beige, creamy, mostly lasting, good lacing. Aroma is citrus, chocolate, roasted malt, tropical fruits, quinine, dark fruits, pine. Medium sweet, heavy bitter. Finish is long lasting roasty and hoppy heavy bitter, slightly salty side taste. Medium body, thick texture, average carbonation. Quite easy dessertish beer, feels like an American hoppy black IPA, fantastic.

jjsint (2019) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle from Bacchanalia, Mill Road, Cambridge. Brownish red, hazy, like generic cherry cola. Caramel, resin and dried fruit dominate the heady aroma. Tastes even better than it smells. Sweet piney fruit hit is followed by bitter oily hop. Huge hop intensity in the long finish... bitter but never acrid. More pine in aftertaste. Damn this is good.

Turtles (1545) - 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 (579) - 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
