3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from A Tutta Birra, Milan, bb 13-06-14
Dark brown color with reddish hue; huge head. Deep aroma, hops in the front, some fruits, then biscuits and caramel, finally English yeast. The mouthfeel is semi-dry, there is too much carbonation; with strong caramel flavor, dark caramel, touch of roasted malt, and light liquorice; it has a good blend of resiny hops and yeast; the final is a bit spicy.
Lot of character; but also rough.

(Bottle) Clear red with little white head. Pleasant subtle hoppy aroma. Medium body with excellent carbonation. Nice hoppy bitterness from start to the very long finish. Some gentle sweetness. Overall a nice and unusual combination.

Brown bottle, 330ml, Morrison’s Aberdeen. Scent is mild toasted grain. Pours dark ruby amber, transparent with a tan head subsiding average. Weak on the nose. Taste is medium grainy bitter hops with light sweet hints. Finish is dry, little harsh. Decent.

Bottle. Chewy toffee with a fair amount of herbal and grassy hops. Slightly unusual but in a good way.

Lovely marmalade aroma
aroma. Deep rich bronze colour. Loads of toffee malt but thankfully balanced by a black pepper bitterness and there’s an aromatic hop floating in the background.Ah just seen this is dry hopped which explains that. Not my style but I do like this.

Was expecting great things from the score. Good beer with nice caramel and hoppy flavours but nothing extraordinary IMHO.

330ml ; called Infa Red Oxymoronic IPA and more conservative as its lower boost than on the database @ 6.2 ... Drank from a Chimay goblet I guess its sorta nice while watchin the cricket on tv kinda beer ... its a soulless enough beer to drink with out thinking about its fucken nuance ,yet populated with flavour - is that an oxymoron ? . This nose is floral grapefruit hops ,resin, nutty malts ,maybe some strawberry or lychee ; deep red, looks tight- a subtle beige head too ; And it dranks big powerful kinda chewey caramel crystal malt personality - with handfuls of sticky rich hops -giving birth to grapefruit , pine. grass . Nicely there is some dryness to this as its pretty rich ... Ive got 5 more bootles. I will drop it down maybe . I can’t see it gettin’ higher points !

Bottle from morrisons. Dark copper beer with medium head and patchy lacing. Aroma is dry red leaf and malts. Taste is malts, caramel, dry leaf, some pine resin and a little smoke. Slight touch of oil on the palate. Very good.

pours unclear brown with an amber shine. Listed as an amber ale, yet to dark to be one, and an IPA according to the bottle. confusing...
Small white head. Smell is sharp ,aromatic hops. Bit sweet, but mostly trough the hops instead of the malts. Taste is Bitter, rather sharp bitter even. Earthy hoppyness, not as fruity as thought. has some characteristics of the English ’bitter ’style to me.

Cask at CASK in Pimlico. Great hit of resiny hops with a sweet finish, some herbaceousness, alcohol noticeable. Nice beer.
