3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lovely reddish ale with durable foam. Lovely aroma of hops, with citrus and exotic fruit in abundance. The hops are Chinook (crossing of UK and US hops) and the beautiful New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops, which almost always excites me. Taste wise it is probably not as a red ale, the expected sweet caramel-like malt notes are completely gone. It is nearer to compare with a pale ale, although the color is much darker than pale ales should be. A little dark caramel notes can be good to get together with a little taste of toasted white bread, but it is absorbed quickly by a fruity hops. The hops have tang of little melon, peach, apricot, passion fruit and orange and I just agreed that Nelson Sauvin hops is probably my favorite hops. It’s a super delicious ale, though the name ’American Red Ale’ pointing most towards pale ale instead.

Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Hoppy with citrus in background. Medium body and low carbonation. I thought this should be described as a dark IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle picked up at Beer Gonzo webshop, Coventry, consumed at home Thursday 6th August 2015 Reddy brown in colour with a white head, malty beer, despite the name I thought that the hops were conspicuous by their absence. It’s mostly caramel with a dab of citrus and berry fruits. Not that impressed in fact I used 75ml of it to make a beer batter for my fish this evening and this is where it excelled.

sorry, but this one isn’t so fresh. Caramel and grapefruit with subtle hints of piney notes, not so much for this beer but i supposed that this isn’t fresh. Maybe the next time...

From bottle in English pint glass. Pours deep, dark blood red with nice head that had large bursting bubbles like a pancake ready to flip. Rich malt taste as I’d expect from a beer I can’t see through!
