Very well balanced beer. It has a very nice red colour with a 1 finger head. Full of citrus and a very slight coffee taste which works well with this beer.

downender (6164) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle from Oddbins, Clifton, Bristol. Amber coloured with a big, frothy, off-white head. Slightly bready malts, grassy hops, a touch of orange fruit and a long lasting, bitter finish. Very good.

Bright clear amber beer with a big pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate with fine carbonation. Smooth, light and fresh tasting malt with a touch of cream. Touch of skunk in the hops and smooth marmalade. Comes together well in to a smooth finish. Decent.

A huge beer filled with tropical and fruity hop backbone, finishing with a nice pinapple and deep pine fresh hop aroma. Well laced and conditioned. Another fine edition to the series

Amber, clear, bubbly white head. Aroma of musty fruits, soft fairly sweet malts. Taste of dry citrus zesty hops, some tropical fruits, soft fairly sweet fruity malts, caramel. Artwork is great too.

OliBird (30) - WALES - OCT 15, 2013
A clear slightly reddish looking beer with a tan head that has good retention. Tastes fairly sweet and moderately bitter. Gorgeous mix of coffee and fruity aromas. Carbonation spot on and a lovely full bodied palate with a creamy mouthfeel. Great collab! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrisoni (13280) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2013
Bottle from Oddbins London drunk at home. Good American red ale. amber ale whatever. Good malts, good hops. Maybe just a bit of butter on the aroma. That will die off in a few weeks. Good strawberry jam flavour, good grapefruit hops. One of my favourite styles and this is a decent version. Maybe a bit maltier and sweeter than some. Nice though.
