COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

minutemat (881) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2013
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.

Nice red / brown with a deep off white head. Very hoppy and a smooth bitterness. Lots of the usual citrus, floral, and some tropical notes. Good beer!

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Cask at the Cock Tavern. It pours red-amber with a small white head. The nose is earth, oily hop, tropical fruits... mango, tangerine and touch of barnyard. The taste is red berry, zesty citrus, red grapefruit, assertive bitterness, resin, varnish and a touch of alcohol with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Pretty delicious! Great brew from this new brewery!
