19 April 2004 - Low head retention, nice lacing, slight haziness, needs to be a little more red. Subtle malt aroma. Nice starting malt but lacks complexity.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thoroughly enjoyable beer. Great aroma of Sauvin hops, reddish appearance with a thin head.
Malt flavours lean to a slight sweetness and some pleasant bitterness follows through with a hint of sourness perhaps?

I didn't get much aroma from this brew (though I only had a half). Hazy red ale appearance. Hoppy & sour flavour. Requires another shot to make sure I am objective.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 Draught at the brewhouse (pint). Arrived a burnt red copper with a small, creamy, white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of crystal malts, tart blackberries, cranberries and sweet toffee. Flavor was a moderate bitterness with tart blackberries, caramel, sweet malts (crystal), light toffee and a light metallic finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation, a watery texture, dry mouthfeel and an ok finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewhouse.Pours an amber red with a small slightly tan head. Low carbonation. Equal malt aroma and flavour as is expected with red ales, yet a profound citrus hop finish that adds a nice touch to this red. Some floral aromas and flavours. The carbonation needs fixing, but otherwise great.
