3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Queens Arms, Piccadilly. It pours cloudy deep red with medium beige head. The nose is fresh pine, resin, blood orange and earth. The taste is bitter-sweet, pine, resinous, red berry, grapefruit, orange, light jaminess, caramel, toasty, earth, touch of alcohol and a somewhat vinous quality with a bitter finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A rather tasty hoppy red ale. Good depth and drinkability. Nice work Moncada!

Hand bottle at beer and cheese event at Shoreditch. Pours ruby red with a small off white head. Nose is pungent tropical fruits with doses of citrus. Light earthiness comes through with a touch of spice. Tropical fruits dominate and a touch of marmalade comes through as it warms. Light bitterness with balanced sweetness on the palate. Good stuff

This is a Red Ale and packs a punch. It is quite flat and pours a red/brown. OK.
