3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ruby beer with a medium, long lasting, head. Aroma is of floral and piney hops, fresh. Sweet caramal malts too. Body is medium and balanced co2. Hoppy long taste, rather bitter, almost too much for me :) Good good!

Pretty big mouthfeel, fantastic balance of sweetness and bitterness, long aftertaste, good aroma. Actually had this with roasted chicken and sweet potatoes and vegetables, fantastic match up. Very, very good!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 33cl. Clear red colour with a small head on top. The bitter aftertaste is really noticeable in the final. It looks like a very drinkable and refreshing beer but the alcohol is noticeable in the end. Very good job. Another masterpiece from Mikkeler

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ruby pour with a frothy white head. Bursting with aromas and flavours. Malt, hops, berries, grapefruit, pine, caramel, nutmeg, grass, biscuit, yeast, booze. Deliciously refreshing and very moreish (be careful though it is 7% abv). Slightly sticky on the lips.

Keg at L’Express De Lyon, 14th August 2013. Agree with last couple of rates this is over rated. OK IPA, I have rated almost 200, this is average. Not too clean tasting, heavy and a little boozy, but drinkable

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at the Euston Tap - London. Pours clear amber with a foamy white head. The aroma holds lots of ripe and juicy citrus along with heavy pine. Medium sweet flavor, some earthy pine, alcohol, sticky citrus, grapefruit. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Resinous finish with heavy pine, grapefruit, earth, alcohol, toasted bread and orange. Must not be in top condition because this beer is average at best.
