2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
1st February 2013
Hazy red - brown beer with a decent pale tan head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Minerally carbonation. Watery malt, slightl lactose. Mild tangy orange and a touch of dark marmalade. Crisp and semi dry finish. Inoffensive but bland. Really doesn’t match the grandiosity of the bottle!

Dark copper, next to no head. Has a very sweet fruity aroma and taste that appeals.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle from Marks and Spencer.
Frothy off white head, some lacing. Body is dark reddish amber. Nose is initially apple but subsequently nutty. More nuts in the body, some chocolate, a little berries, lemon. Decent mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Decent considering it was in a £10 meal deal.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet caramel dominates and it has a fairly light aroma, with trace hay. Berries and cereal come in, but the texture is a little thin. Dry slightly grassy finish , which is quite short. For a lot of beer (750 ml bottle) it could do with a bit more body, but does get better with progress. Some sharp apple comes in late on. Lovely deep red colour.

didn’t rate this at the time as it had been merged with yakima red!
Dark ruby brown with pleasant fruity aroma, pleasing hop bitterness and some citrus notes balanced by robust sweet malt body. Very easy to drink the whole 750.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Malty with some fruitiness. Plenty of body considering its relatively low strength. Nice slightly bitter finnish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bold hoppiness with gassey tinged nose under a rusty body with feverent carbonation. Big lava pour on the first dust, eventually simmers in the bottle to a more mellow vibe.
Stern metallic kiss to the initial taste, vibrant all angles malt and a neat bite of skin thin hop crunch. Showy midrange with a wee zoom back to a pudding malt sweetness for the finish.
More impressive than I had thought and it would need to be, considering it is shelved alongside bottles of wine for the M&S deal. My Da informs me that these are normally gone by lunchtime any day of the week. Personally I’d prefer a thin bottle of Cabarnet.

Bottle. Pours a mid brown colour with a medium size white head, real fruity aroma the taste is the bitter with hops and fruit with a dry finish.
