$5.49 500 ml bottle from Market Street Wine Shop, Downtown. Pours murky brown with an inch plus of creamy beige head. Aroma is strong floral hops, almost perfumey, as well as light citrus, caramel, and apple? Flavor is highly floral, with rose hips, black tea, orange, caramel, raisin, violet?, nuts. Quite nice.

Grzesiek79 (4037) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 21, 2016
Bardzo dobre piwo. Pachnie bardzo chmielnie kwaitami i cytrusami. W smaku goryczkowe, nieco karmelu, ale glownie sporo dawki szlachetnej goryczki. Piwo ladnie wyglada piana spora i trwala, kolor klarowny czerwono herbaciany. Przyjemne i mocno wytrawne zwlaszcza na finiszu. Troche moze zbyt bylo przegazowane.

Perpignan73 (36) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
500ml bottle, chilled, poured into a pint glass at home. Amber colour; small off white head; lovely sweet nose, toffee apple, orange, malts; bitter taste; creamy; some caramel, raisin, orange with a sweetish, dry finish. Lacks a little body, but very tasty and highly drinkable, imo better than a lot of these new American style red/rye ales.

Nonshaugen (464) - Fetsund, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2015
33 cl (11,2 fl oz) bottle, 5,5% ABV. Clear, dark amber to red-brown, thin tan head, lively rolling carbonation. Aroma is sweet and malty, some toffee. Great traditional English style bitter going on. It’s malty, toffee and caramel notes, a bit fenolic, medium carbonated, bittering hops are present in the aftertaste. Very nice treat!
