3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A clear, glowing reddish dark golden beer topped by a dense, minimal sized light beige head. The aroma is resiny and citrusy, with caramel maltyness and a nutty touch. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming on the palate with a nice carbonation level. Bitter, resiny flavor with orange zest, caramel and a nuttyness. Quite dry. Lasting finish with caramel and a good bitterness and oranges. Quite nice this one, but I think it’s a tad too dry actually. 141219

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
As Slayer says, "Blood Red" is the color. Fresh hops with an underlying malt backbone in the aroma. It should be said that this bottle has been shared with the belching Chudwick. Kriskros would call him the wicker da wicker da wick. Then they would make you jump jump.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber thanks to the nostalgic AndyReynolds into the DLD 2013 memento snifter - nose is rye and something akin to the paint thinner, which I’m told is fresh hops. Bitter. Strong. Not doing it for me but I can respect it. Batch 333/334. Fairly dry.
