Cask, Keg & Bottle; Regular.

A full bodied, aromatic Red Rye ale brewed with malted barley, the addition of 20% Rye to the recipe, and with Chinook, Columbus and Simcoe hops. We think the Rye in the recipe gives some dryness and spice, and the hops add a dash of pine and passion fruit, but see what you think, everyone’s taste buds are different. This is an incredibly flavoursome Red Ale, full of lots of interesting tastes and aromas.

Bottled. Pretty red color. Nose of caramel, earthy hops, cherry. Quite average red ale. Unexciting and not quite together yet.

Bottle, pours like coca cola. Low fizz. Minimal head. Smells like dusty malts, and quite metallic. Taste is full bodied, creamy, with loads of bitter malts, coffee. I quite liked it.

Bottle at home, 2nd August 2013. Not a bad amber ale, missing something, compared with my favourites of this style

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Re-rated from a fresh bottle. Massive bitter hops, very zingy and hitting the spot a lot more than last time! Crazy good.

330ml bottle from Borough Wines, Hackney. Pours Mahogany brown, alcoholic liquored nose, extremely bitter with a little zest but shying away from any sweetness. Modest carbonation. Probably a little too bitter for me.

Keg @ The Cock Tavern. Deep reddish brown with a tiny white head. The nose is quite sweet. Loads of caramel, tangy cranberry, pissy new world hops. A bit brash, lively. The taste is toffee, sweet cherry. Burnt brown sugar, coffee cake. Quite sweet. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, solid.
