(Cask at Craft Beer Co Clapham, London, 29 Nov 2014) Ruby red colour with foamy, beige head. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, blood orange and rye bread. Malty, fruity taste with notes of pink grapefruit, rye bread, orange peel and a balanced spicy/citric bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty, but the rye character gets a bit sharp. Quite nice.

Cask, Ale House, Chelmsford. Pretty much a hoppy take on a red ale. Latest batch is far hoppier than I remember it being. The rye malt backbone is solid and it’s very drinkable. It’s considerably fruity and pungent. Resinous and piny. Assertive but not ott. Drinkable. I enjoyed it.

Bottle courtesy Ang’, passed on at the Moncada Brewery Taproom (soon to open), Friday 16th May 2014 consumed at home Saturday 24th May 2014 Pours reddy/amber with light filmy coating and a creamy edge. A little metallic at first with a distinctive twang which is fruity but I cannot identify which fruits. Hops show and continue to show throught having said that I wouldn’t describe this as a hoppy beer. Ok but I prefer others in the range. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov3 3.1

50 cl bottle.
Pours clear dark mahogany color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is quite nice with caramel, malts and some faint chocolaty notes, mild hops, rye and nuts also. Kind of watery but creamy palate with flavors of caramel, toffee, malts, rye and dried fruits. Soft carbonation, lingering caramel aftertaste. Very easy to drink but a bit sturdier body could have made this way better.

Bottle from the Red Squirrel Chesham Brewery Shop. Was slightly outside of the best before date. Poured a dark, bright ruby with a dense, beige head. Aroma of milk chocolate, rye and dark malts. Sweet flavours of ripe berries, cocoa and dark cake. Finish was burnt malt, gentle coffee and bitter chocolate. Had to look twice at this one... really tasted like a porter, but looked like an amber ale...
