Had on tap at the brewery. Lovely red colour. Nice sweet malt aromas. Good malt profile with initial taste and finishing with lovely hop bitterness.

Growler fill, deep chestnut amber red with low level champagne like carbonation. Thick off white head leaving nice lacework down the glass. Aromas of roasted malt and caramel dominate with some floral hints of resinous hop. Soft carbonic mouthfeel with a real malty punch mid palate, well rounded flavour with a classic nutty and bitter lingering finish.

pours a deep red with plenty of malt and hops in the aroma.the flavour opens up with caramel,toffee maltís that work brilliantly with the citrusy hops to deliver a well balanced bitterness that doesnít seem to end while never overpowering. one word....RedHopulous.
