3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a crystal clear amber with a slightly red hue, and a minimal offwhite head that fades quickly. The dominant aromas are red fruits and berries, and there’s a toffee-like aroma to it as well, while the finish gives way to more bitter aromas like cocoa powder and coffee. The rye also contributes to a spicy finish. The taste is fairly sweet, with a bitter-dry finish, but the finish is unfortunately quite short. The mouthfeel is creamy without feeling heavy, probably because of the carbonation.
Overall this is a decent macro ale, and I’ll definitely have another.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 ml. bottle. Clear, amber colour with a golden tint. Big, bubbly off-white head, that fades to a fat cap. Sweet aroma with caramel and bread malts, toasted. A spicy, smoked note - the rye malts. Taste is light bitter. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. Finishes dry and lightly bitter with herbal hops. I like the smoked, herbal dryness from the rye in this one. Otherwise rather ordinary Bitter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Does indeed pour like blood ... red and muddy, thin top. Interesting character ... definitely woody, nutty and fall-based. Drinks with a edgy bit of bark, a definite hazelnut consistency. Better than I expected, and interestingly Brittanic. Good stuff, maybe a bit on the thin side. (#5289, 10/13/2013)

Duft af modne bær. Maltdomineret tør smag med en let bitterhed og noter fra den ristede malt. En ok ale men lidt anonym
