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.

Tap at the Pint Shop, Cambridge, UK. Red brown color with an off-white head. Floral but limited hop aroma. Sour and bitter on the tongue with a malty undertone. Quite nice.

6.3%ABV. Red ale. Poured out red brown. 23°SRM. Nose is sweet and creamy. Caramel peanuts or praline pecans. Pecan pie is the aroma I was looking for. Mouthfeel is carbonated. Palate is mineral, salty and broad carbohdrate not not quite starchy, with dough and fresh baked barley loaves. Toast, deeply browned pie crust. Overall the palate comes across as slightly leathery. Hops are bitter and slightly medicinal. Clean bitter. Finish is medium. Lingering bitter. Goes on Favorites List !

ManVsBeer (8766) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2016
Keg @ Ninth Ward, Farringdon, London. Deep red with a thin off-white creamy head. It’s a Black IPA with a dominant dark malt fruitiness, with some underlying roasted malts evident too. Crisp enough drinking despite its strength.

Colore ambra scuro rosso. Schiuma ampia e frizzantina di colore biancastro. Aroma floreale e erbaceo. Al palato è una buona ale, amarognola, consistenza leggera, una bella base maltata. Carbonazione media. Eccellente

Unde (902) - 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 (4653) - 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
