Grzesiek79 (4000) - 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 (30) - 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 (437) - 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!

Sjohnh (752) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Attractive red - brown colour, with a thin white head which fades to leave a bit of lacing. Body on the light side of medium. Nose is floral, with a hint of violet as advertised on the label, and some red fruit sitting on top of bready malt. Malt is a more pronounced in the taste, with more cherry and is sight!y metallic. Nice enough.
