Good stuff for a red ale coming from a man who doesn’t usually like red ales. A tasty drink

Great beer. Really nice clear red poor with frothy white head. Hops and malts are very well balanced, really nice prominant smooth bitterness. Very good.

Compact but lasting tight off white head with a deep dark cherry red body. Balanced aroma of hops and some caramel. Hops upfront in the initial taste but followed well with the malt, hints of toast, also shows great depth.

On tap at The Grain Store. Pours copper colored with a thick head, biscuit aroma, big hops flavour up front and a lingering bitterness. A great red ale.

On tap at The Archive. Pours a red/brown, thin white head, very hoppy aroma, dry and very fruity with a crisp finish. A good beer, just not my favourite style.

Poured a dark coppery amber with a light tan two-to three-finger frothy head that retained as a sudsy cap for all of the drink. Laced OK. Carbonation medium and fine. Aroma of beautiful sweet tropical fruits and pine hops. Taste malty, pine hops; very hops driven. Light to medium body. Finishes with a pleasant bitterness. A fabulous beer.

Dark red pour with a tan head. Beautifully hopped, huge malty backbone with a complexity that is hard to match. Heavy body for a red, moderate carbonation. Lots of dark fruit, citrus, toffee and some charred wood. One of the better red ales about

On tap at Archive Beer Boutique 080314. Big red ale with plenty of punch. Nice and hoppy to go with the nutty malt flavours.

Dark red celtic, big on the hops ale. Heavy on the pallet, but in a good way. Woody hop and slightly sour after taste.

Malt dominant - needs a lot more hops for this to be ’hopped out’ for me - lots of resin aftertaste - okay but not impressed.
