2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Deep red body topped by a one-finger off-white head. Couldn’t pick up too much on the nose. Taste is mainly malt with a light fruity overlay from hops. It seems a bit too subdued for its own good, insipid even. Lacks the deep body usually associated with the style. A bit underwhelming really.

Bottle. Murky ruby with a quickly dissipating off white head. Unattractive aromas of raspberry and sugar with an almost hidden nut and caramel element. Some roastiness up front and a little hop spiciness towards the end, but overall an overly sweet beer with a very thin mouthfeel. Didn't enjoy this one.

On tap at the middle park hotel.
A good malty red ale with toasty, nutty, toffee flavours and just a touch of hop bitterness. Nice body and carbonation and a good dry finish.

A perfectly acceptable Red Ale. Sampled from a 330ml bottle into a Pilsner glass, it pours clear copper-red with a small off white head. Nose and taste is toasty crystal malts with a light hop bitterness and easy drinking smooth palate.
