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.

Cask, Jolly Butchers. 25th April 2015. Really juicy hops on Finnish rye bread pretty much sums this one up. So bloody drinkable. Lovely fresh bread nose. Absolutely top condition. Stunning. Can drink loads of this.

Towey1989 (313) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2015
Cask at The Buxton Brewery Tap House. A clear brown colour with a creamy off white head. Aroma of sweet caramel, red berries, orange, cherry, almond and some grapefruit. Taste of nuts, red berries, orange, grapefruit, caramel and resin. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a smooth texture. A fruity but dry, resinous bitterness in the finish. A really good malty/refreshing beer on cask, great.

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.

heman (148) - Tychy, POLAND - MAR 1, 2015
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 (8107) - 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

Travlr (14702) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 5, 2015
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.

Cunningham (5247) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2015
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.
