4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown pour with red highlights. Sweet malty aroma with a touch of soy sauce that fades into more of a cherry nose. Very rich malt body is balanced by a clear but subtle hop note. Finishes with roast and resin that somehow melds really well. This has to be one of the most complex and well-balanced beers i’ve had.

Aroma of tamarind, resin, grapefruit and a little cookie. Deep amber with a very thin tan head. The taste is of toasted malts, nutmeg, wheat with a bitter finish. I'm not getting this quite right...it's really good.

It’s a pretty balanced red ale. Amazing aroma and not to hop forward. Really drinkable and enjoyable brew. Like it a lot and would re buy. I’d definitely drink a couple of pints of this

Very likable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours brown with a large head.
Nose shows herbal, spicy and piny hops along with some biscuity malt and a minty note.
Very similar flavours: herbal, minty and piny hops alongside some toasty malt hidden underneath followed by a sharp, aggressive bitterness.
Carbonation is a little over the top.
