justm (164) - Essex, - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle from Beers of Europe at home. It pours a deep deep amber brown with a ruby red edge to it and a fluffy tan head which blooms then fades. A big pine resin aroma says ’Here I Am, Dink Me!’ with some orange marmalade notes playing in the background. Cheek-suckingly bitter at first, an incredibly smooth cherry caramel coffee (but not roast) flavour sweeps in with a little tangerine, leather and pine then suddenly fades. Then just when you think it’s all over, back comes the pine bitterness from the back of your throat, engulfing the whole mouth like a hoppy tidal wave. The aftertaste sees that same bitterness gradually fading to let the tropical fruit flavour I was anticipating struggle to the surface. This is a seriously hoppy beer, that has assaulted my palate and left it bowed but not beaten. Astonishingly good and absolutely delicious.

teddybeer (3193) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 16, 2016
Reddish/brown color with an off-white head, good lasting and nice lacework. Aroma hoppy with resin notes, slightly toasty. Flavor has a decent bitterness, slightly citrus, some toasty and some caramelish hints. Good bitterness in the final with good duration.

Originally rated on 5/21/08. Another good beer from B.R. it poured a dark reddish brown with an incredibly thick, lasting tan head, good lacing. Aroma and tastes of citrus and hops, sweet malts, and caramel. slightly dry, alcohol was noticeable but not overwhelming. Good solid brew

Eastwood (140) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 5, 2016
Tomada en el Kraken. Red Ale, muy aromática. Con toques dulces, muy fácil de beber. Deja un retrogusto muy seco en el paladar y amargo. Más compleja declo q parece a primer trago. Color rojizo, espuma blanca. Cerveza de calidad, para repetir.

eljebi (52) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 3, 2016
Una versión bastante macarra de las rojas escocesas. Mucho cuerpo y un toque lupulado extra que contrasta con un final del trago dulce y maltoso y un retrogusto que nos lleva de nuevo al amargor del lúpulo americano.
