COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This blood-red ale may not be what you might expect from a malty and hoppy craft beer. Evil Twin has a rich malt character, without being overly sweet. It has a huge hop character, without being overly bitter. It is a great example of a bold, rich, balanced craft beer, without being heavy and hard to drink in quantity. Our Evil Twin is only bad because it is too good to resist.

Fin (9591) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2016
Can from Beer Gonzo webshop, Earlsdon, Coventry. Consumed at home Friday 5th February 2016 Rich blood red on the pour with a sticky light beige head that is a clinger to the glass. Another beer that has a real thick and substantial mouthfeel, an almost zingy clean toothpastes feel in the way that this attacks the gums. A little hoppy malty, toffee good hoppy burst with a punchy resinous burst. Like this, bit malty maybe but the hops cut through well. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Deep red/brown pour with thin off white head. Sweet, sticky malts, with a juicy, resinous hop bite. Decent, but a bit of an off after taste for me.
