3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml brown bottle. Deep orange body. Head is light tan, dense, tthick and long lasting. Lots of thick lacing. Nose has sweet malts, a bit of fruit and citrus peels. Taste is pretty hoppy, nice citrus notes, some sweetness and caramel malts, some fruitiness. Finishes hoppy with lasting grapefruity and orange peel like hops. Also a lasting malt note that is a bit earthy and nutty. Light body, mild carbonation. Lots of flavour for a lighter alc beer, and gorgeous in the glass. Overall this is a nicely hopped UK red ale that is richer and hoppier than expected.

Copper-nut-brown, frothy dark white beige head with good lacings. Aromas of nuts, bready malts, light toast and some butterscotch develop. Softly carbonated, soft texture and medium body. Juicy malt center light herbal bitterness with a medium finish. Bit more oomph than the british version.

Clear red beer with a thick frothy head and a smell of dry, spicy malt. Flavour follows that up with a touch of hop and an almost smoky finish. There’s a touch of citrus running through it as well which makes it feel quite a bit fresher too.
