Bottle. Clear red color, mild red and orange hu overall. Hoppy, husky nose of C-note hops, some cherries and some good sticky malts (actually reminds me of the Hog Heaven aroma). Woody, husky flavor, with some charred cedar and nutty flavors. Pretty solid, surprisingly hoppy.

A Mes rate:
Sugary aroma. Deep tan body with no head. Ok looks wise. Sweet alcoholic flavour that is soapy and sticky. Crap palate. Just too thin. Not that great.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Red with frothy beige head. According to JDW tasting notes the colour comes from red maize!? Initial roasted malt aromas and a thick creamy body. After a few sips the body becomes much thinner with a dry empty flavour reminiscent of some beers unders nitro.

Didn’t like this at all. It looked good and the aroma was quite interesting, but the taste was hugely disappointing, even medicinal. I nearly poured it away, but persevered bravely to the end. Perhaps I’ll try it again because I like the name.
