3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Lord Hobo. Deep amber red pour, thin ring of white head. Aroma is quite hoppy, lots of toasted malt aromas, very toasty, light alcohol, pine. Taste is bitter, piney, heavily hopped, more like an old school double IPA than anything I would describe as a red ale, light caramel taste. Med full bodied with good carbonation. Good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
660ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Nice hoppy aroma, sweetish, some crystal malts detectable. Nice full red, large spongy persistent head. Very full taste, a punch of sweet caramely malts, loads of tingly throbbing bitter hops. After tasting it, the aroma picks up quite a hit of alcohol. Very aromatic and floral. But the alcohol takes over the taste before too long too. Plusses and minuses. Peaked at 3.8, troughed at 3.2.

Red copper beer, big thick beige head. Nose is fruity, vanilla and hops, oranges. Flavor is caramel, malt, lots of oranges, hops. Citric bitterness and booze warmth in the finish. Booze lingers around for quite some time, along with hop oils. Nice, but pretty boozy and hop oily.
