12oz bottle pours a hazy brick red with some thick, off white head which faded fast. Nose is classic red ale, caramel, crackers, some light toast with honey spread over, orange. Flavor is the same, a little flinty, malt, cracker, a little tomato. Medium bodied, crisp finish. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crisp deep toffee coloured body with a hint of a ruby tint and a thinnish, one centimetre tall tan head - decent looking. Aroma of light malt, some minor sugars and a hint of citrus or fruits. Light-bodied; Sharp creamy flavour with some malt, raisins, nuts, earth and a bit of bananas in the mix - not much going on in complexity though. Aftertaste shows a bit of sweetness with a little nuttiness and earthy flavours. Overall, a decent beer that shows somewhat well, but still not executed flawlessly. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Alexandria (Old Town), Virginia on 06-April-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 10-May-2013.

Tap at E Burger. Rating #44. Great looking beer, dark red with some amber in there as well and a real nice sticky light tan head. Caramel malt with a little bit of hops in the nose. Smooth flavor, more hops that fade pretty quickly with a mild aftertaste. Not bad at all. (2722)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at te Rake - London. Pours clear, deep good with a fine, creamy white head. Simple bready malt nose with hints of berries, strawberry. Medium sweet flavor with crisp, dry bready malts, light leaves, hints of dried berry fruits. Light to medium bodied with average, mouth-filling carbonation. Moderately sweet finish, lightly toasted bread, low bitterness, some pectin. I get why people might not like this style. It’s really simple stuff, but still tasty.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This canned brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized light white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light red brown colored body and a poor lacing. The almost non-existent aroma was cardboard and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The deep flavor contained notes of cardboard mild hops floral and Irish red malt. Not one that I would likely drink again.
