On tap at the Waterloo Tap, Waterloo. Amber with a trace of white head that laces the glass nicely; fresh leafy hop aroma; soft in the mouth with some resinous hops and a mix of pine and citrus; then a leafy bitterness, and a long drying finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Ales by Mail. Caramel dominated red ale. Sweet, almost to the point of excess. The hops only show themselves very late on in the finish. Big medicinal flavour on the tongue, with hints of pine. Not quite what I expected, but a big beer all the same
