3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[keg at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] Dark brownish red with a large, cream-coloured head. As expected, lots and lots of fruity tropical aromas – mango, passion fruit, papaya. Resinous as well, very piney. Trace of celery in there, too. Similar flavours. Becomes progressively sweet and woody on the finish, as the pine mingles with the sweeter fruit flavours and the alcohol

Keg. Deep red scarlet ale. Opaque with, as expected, a BIG TOP. decent offwhite head too. Smells of mango, grapefruit, lime. Taste is surprisingly malty, but still tons of fruits. Mango and lychee and a little plum perhaps. Finish is solid. Dry, sweet and bitter and lasting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half- pint, keg beer, served chilled at BrewDog Camden. Slightly unclear, dark brown body. Bubbly, tan-coloured head. Rings of lacing down the glass. Aroma of bitter liquorice and dark, mid-sweet malts. Blended flavour of apricot and liquorice bitterness. Bitter dried fruity ending. Nice but quite heavy to drink (London, 06.11.2012).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
26th November 2012
Euston Tap. Cloudy rto muddy red brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Not a pretty beer! Smooth semi soft palate with fine minerally carbonation. Very creamy malt with a streak of grain. Big skunky hops. Traces of citrus and red berry fruits. Finishes smooth and semi dry. On the face of it this should be a very good beer. But it’s a little to grainy and the hops a bit too skunk dominant Still not bad though!

On tap, deep red pour with a small head. Malty and fruity hops, the defining aroma characteristic is a nutty note which was quite unusual, big alcohol kick. Nice beer
