2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Embassy Hotel, Brisbane. Poured an opaque brownish red with a thin light tan foamy head that retained well but laced poorly. No visible carbonation. Aroma of malt and a trace of sweet caramel. Taste of earthy malt, sharp sweet fruit (possibly berries) and very faint bitterness. Light to medium body. Smooth sweet earthy and very faintly bitter finish. OK.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours chestnut brown with a small yellow head. Nose is very pronounced toffee and citrus hops. Quite toffee and biscuit forward in the taste with citrus throughout and a nice dose of hoppy bitterness to finish it off. Solid stuff

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear deep reddish brown with a broken white head. The aroma is malty but very weak. The flavour is is medium bitter, malty and a little metallic. The flavour lacks body and diverse flavours. Iím not sure where the concept of an English Red comes from. Iím not aware of anyone in England brewing one and the Irish examples are mediocre too.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pretty funny beer, all the tastes can be a bit conflicting. Aroma is slightly repugnant, appearance is a light blood red, cloudy with yeast and a regular head. Taste is earthy with some berry flavours. Palate bitter with not much feeling. Overall, expected more.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown. Small tan coloured head that falls away pretty quickly. Aromas are dominated by nutty sweet caramel. Not much else going on. Flavours are sweet with some nutty bitterness to finish. A little ho hum to be honest.
