3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Mybrewerytap.
Pours fairly muddy amber with a lovely, staying, cream-coloured, cremy head. Aroma has lovely spiciness, pine, grapefruit, light ashy toasted caramel, some resin and light sweetness. Medium carbonation, good dry and fairly light mouthfeel. Flavour has dusty caramel malts, some resin, a tad yeasty, some rhubarb, citrus. Fairly bitter finish with some grainy malts. Certainly not Magic Rock’s best effort, but still good.

Off cask. Very pale for an amber ale. A slightly less hoppy version of 5am saint but still nice.

Handpull at Craft Beer Co. Very drinkable red ale that, and i cant believe iam saying this, is just too hoppy. Good hoppy lovely hoppy but hops dominate the malts too much

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Attractive red-brown color, frothy off-white head. The aroma is quite hoppy and sweet. The taste is certainly bitter, but balanced with a fruity sweetness. The mouthfeel’s pleasingly constructed. Nicely carbonated, medium mouthfeel. Overall, this is quite good. It’s not Magic Rock’s premier offering, but certainly worthy.
