2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Deep golden to light amber coloured, smaller stable off-white foam, hazy, fruity-hoppy nose with a skunky touch; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, relatively dry and light bodied; lingering bitter-hoppy finish with that barnyardy touch again. Really not my personal favourite…

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ de Molen. Clear amber color, short head. Aroma of american hop, grapefruit, some pine, slight malty as well. Taste is a bit bitter and dry, quite thin and watery though. For 4% it’s ok and its very easy to drink, but it’s just a bit thin.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the De Molen second Tuesday tasting, April 2013. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin glass hugging head. The aroma is grassy and hoppy leading to a medium bitter flavour with lots of American hops. It’s a little metallic too , but the hops make up for that slightly negative qualities!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dobre, choć nie rewelacyjne jak dla mnie i dla tego gatunku. Trochę mdławe i wyrznie chmielne, za malo slodowosci. Kolor takze jakby nie czerwony jak w nazwie, ale są to tylko odcienie w bursztybie. Piana za to fajna, ladna i trwala.

Bottle, 4.1% on the label. Pale amber color. Grapefruit and floral hops in the slightly yeasty aroma and flavor. Thinnish. Fairly refreshing. Enough hops. Pleasant ale.

Amber, clear, hoppy aroma, no foam, medium bitterness, light sweetness, little sour, light body, watery feel, average carbonation, short bitter finish; too light too thin but other than that not bad and drinkable

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 33cl, 4.1% abv) Hazy, amber colour with a beige and firm mid-sized foamy head. Flowery, citric and delicately piney hoppy aroma with a mildly cara-malty background. Moderately bitter flavour, fuller body than the abv might suggest, crisp mouthfeel. Dry cara-malty base with present spicy, piney and fruity hops; dry and quite lasting hop bitter finish with a delicate touch of caramel in the aftertaste. Good. 26.II.13
