4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Well, I ain’t even gonna be shy about it, I loved this beer. It has a pretty shitty rating but I loved it. I am still curious as to why ’Red Ale" is not a style and must be classified as an Amber when it clearly stands apart. Firstly, this brew is a pretty redhead, a rusted gold with a long lasting head. A wonderful bouquet of burnt toffee, barnyard, fresh bread and buckwheat honey awaits the nose. It is quite sweet and very malty, exactly how I like my reds unless they claim to be Red IPAs or some such hoppy style. Not too bubbly and smoothness like silk make it a pleasure to drink. I’d raise this pint any day.

Jaune pâle avec une très petite robe blanche. L’arôme est du caramel et céréales. En bouche c’est le même, mais pas trop de chaque! Une bonne bière léger pour prendre avec un BBQ.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Pours a reddish copper colour, white fluffy head and lace. Nose is malty, but not overly appealing. Tastes sweet, malty, a bite bitter, but rather thin. To be truthful it’s not one of my go to styles.

Diolch JoeMcPhee. Lovely fresh crisp malt aroma. Takes me back home. Copper pour with a thin dissipating lace. Nice malt flavour. A little too sweet but a tasty brew overall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours unclear dark golden, red tint, with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. toasted caramel and fruity maltiness - surprising hint of chocolate, dry fruity liquor - berries, bland herbal grassiness, light earthy notes, very chalky and mineral. light carbonation, light body - a tad watery; short and bland yet sort of balanced grassy-herbal finish. weak amber but then again inoffensive.
