bomber into a tulip Mahogany brown color. Big, three finger head, settled to a solid half finger of light brown head. Half a glass of streaked lacing. Nose is of malt and dark fruits. Slight undertone of citrus. Hops have faded pretty much but a good malty nose. Taste is very similar. Lots of stewed dark fruits, good, sweet caramel backbone and just a slight dash of citrus and pine that builds as the beer opens up. Highly carbonated. Very perky carbonation and lighter bodied considering the malt profile. More hop profile in the mid and back. Touches of menthol in the back along with pine. Sweet, dry and bitter finish. Held up pretty nicely.

"this is one of the better ambers out there simply for the fact it is a little more flavorful and robust in character than most. it has nice caramel maltiness, but the hops are assertive as well, finding a nice balance."

Benzai (9432) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. A bit unclear red color, huge off-white head that lasts forever and leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts, hops, lightly fruity. Taste malts, hops, lightly fruity, moderately bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Well, decent, but I expected more. Good beer, but my expectations were higher since Iíve had so many incredible beers from this brewery. On the other hand, not all beers can be a 4+ right? And wtf am I complaining about with a 3.9 score!

wyzzywyz22 (2058) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle. Deep red pour with a small white head. Sweet malts, grassy hops and a little spice present in the snout. Similarly sweet flavour with caramalts leading the charge backed up with some decent hoppage and pleasant fruitiness. Very tidy balance struck .Dry bitter finish. Yet to have a bad one from this crew.

jmarsh123 (163) - Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Pours a deep deep ruby red with a small white head and good lacing. Smells heavily of toffee/caramel. Very sweet on the nose. A little bit of an earthy smell as well. Maybe a little pine. Allergies are acting up a bit today so my nose feels a bit off. Sweet caramel malts smack the palate at first, but it rounds into a good piney bitterness that lingers on the tongue. I thought from the smell this may be too sweet, but even though the caramel is strong the hops do a good job balancing to prevent it from becoming cloying. Medium-high mouthfeel. A bit sticky but the finish is still somewhat dry though with medium carbonation level. Picked this one up on a whim while in SD and had never heard of Drakeís before but love reds. Not the very best Iíve had, but a solid example of the style.
