4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This has surpassed all other Amber/Red beers in terms of smoothness and maltyness for me. The description on the label is 100% accurate. With a solid 6 ABV you wouldn’t even realize, I would share this beer on cold fall or winter nights with someone who may not have yet discovered an appreciation for malty goodness.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Pours a hazy deep amber colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of red berries, some dark berries, slight caramel, a little toasted malts and subtle grass. Taste of red berries, raspberry, some strawberry, slight caramel, a little roasted malts and subtle grass. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, roasted, berry finish. I found this smells and tastes like raspberry ripple or strawberry laces, weird but works. However the finish is short and lacks a big flavour.

330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a deep amber, large white head. Aroma is soft malt and berry fruit. Taste is light, smooth caramel, vanilla and berries. A little sweeter than anticipated, but still an enjoyable amber.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear red beer with a thin filmy head. A bit of fruit and some caramel in the smell. A touch drier than I expected in the taste. Same qualities as the aroma but there’s a touch of bitter hop in there too and a sharp feeling on the tongue.

3.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A simple red ale. Not bad, but nothing that stands out from the rest of the red ales in the world.

pours a ruby reddish brown with a thick frothy beige head. Lots of carbonation. aroma is malt and biscuits. Taste is malty with a little caramel and some bread. Faint sweetness on the finish. I like it and I think it’s better than it’s rating would suggest. Good beer!
