JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, - JAN 25, 2013
Cask at the Cock Tavern E8. Reddish brown in colour. I’m a big fan of these hoppy red ales, and Howling Hops have smashed it with their versions. Luscious juicy fruit from the hops, berries with a hint of sweetness, cream, a bit of snap, long bitter finish. Splendid.

Cask handpull at Cock Tavern Hackney. Clear deep amber colour lasting beige head. Hops hops anx more hops. More an American Red Ale/ Amber. Fresh huge hops. Lots of grapefruit. Amazing. Wow that’s lovely. Touch of tea. Fresh as hell. Delicious. Massively hoppy. Tea.

jackl (3867) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Cask @ The Cock Tavern. The pour’s deep red with a small, bubbly head. The aroma’s toasted brown bread, some caramel and red berry fruits. Rich, malty aroma. The taste is much the same. Lightly sprucy hops break up the bready, sweet malt flavors. Slightly toasty finish. Medium body, very soft on the palate. Not particularly exciting or engaging. Overall, stick to Howling Hops’ pale, hoppy beers!
