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.

27.12.2014. Aroma has loads of berry bitterness and malts, hops. Taste has berries, nalts, grapefruit and hoppy bitterness. Good amber ale and said to be refreshing, still dont find this style very refreshing.

Piana jest beżowa, intensywna. Drobno-pęcherzykowa, ładnie krążkuje na szkle i pozostaje cienką warstwą do końca picia. Kolor to pierwsze zaskoczenie, jest bardzo ciemne. Wydawało mi się, że będzie to czerwone IPA, a barwa jest bardzo ciemno miedziana czy wręcz brunatna. Aromat bardzo intensywny, zdominowany chmielem. Wyraźnie możemy wyczuć słodkie cytrusy, jakby przejrzałe pomarańcze. Piwo jest bardzo gęste, pełne z wyraźną podbudową słodową. Wydaje się, że trzeba będzie je gryźć. Dominują posmaki tytoniowo-żywiczne. Goryczka jest wysoka, lekko zalegająca, czuć niej jakby gorycz kawy i bardzo delikatne muśnięcie jakby przypalonego karmelu.

Fin (8013) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2015 Keykeg at the Black Bulls Head at Open Woodgate, Derbyshire with dad, Pauline and Loz, Thursday 19th February 2015 Pours amber reddy brown colour good clarity but not too much of a head. Fruity and hoppy with a bitter and dryness throughout. A steady citrus vein and I rather like the dry edge to the beer. I was somewhat surprised to note that I hadn’t had this beer before, had three tonight. A7 A4 T8 P5 Ov14 3.8

Draft at Churchkey. Clear bright amber color, fluffy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of toasted caramel. Taste has a malty backbone but decent bitterness, nice balance.

Nice red amber color with a fine tan head. Ok lacing. Lovely aroma. Hoppy, toffee and mild raosted. Medium + body. Tad sweet and a fine balanced bitterness. Average to soft carbonation. Toffee, bready, hoppy and fruity flavor. Lovely amber ale! Nice hop profile.

24th Jan 2015. On-tap at Cotteridge Wines during the Ratebeer bottle exchange day. Poured a clear amber with a lasting off-white head. Aroma was malty with semi-sweet caramel, tropical fruits and mild citrus notes. The taste was also malty and semi-sweet, again with a fruity backbone. Decent.

yngwie (14715) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2015
On tap at Kick. It pours an unclear reddish brown body under a creamy finger thick beige head. The aroma is mostly on the hoppy side, with pine cones, resins and a faint sourish citrus touch. Roasted malts, chocolate and a hint of coffee too. The flavor is bitter, but sort of balances with the malts. Pine cones, resins, some citrus, roasted malts and coffee hints. Full body feeling warming in a way. Nice carbonation. Lasting hop driven finish. Nice indeed, in the borderline between Amber and Brown Ale. 150113

Pours clear deep amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, strawberries and citrus. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long caramel and malty finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
