"It is a deep coppery-red in colour and is very aromatic with intensely floral hops and a lightly sweet and malty flavour. This full-bodied ale offers a very pleasant high bitterness, with smooth sweet malt character, creamy head with good carbonation, and with an excellent bittersweet finish."

TorbenJensen (1225) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2015
Roughly foamy beer with lovely aroma of hops and caramel. It has long fine caramel malt flavor, while the hoppy bitterness, however, leaves a watery taste. From Mexico, I had not expected anything so tastefully and it is roughly in competition with European red ales. Refreshing and thirst-quenching.

tricksta_p (2240) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, fruity notes, hops. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a light to moderate bitter finish. Drinkable, but not very memorable. Too much malty sweetness.

allmyvinyl (6985) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
330ml screw-top bottle, thanks to jeevan. From lupe pintos. Pours clear red brown, thin white head. Aromas of toffee, fudge. Light hop bitter, loads of sugary toffee though. Better than expected.

Bottle from Booths, Media City. Copper with a small head. Has some pale malts in its aroma but it slightly less stated in this respect in taste. However, it’s still quite tasty.

erickok (4340) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 31, 2015
Amber body and small grey head. Simple clean appeal, lightly spiced, red malts, cereal, some marmelade. Clean taste, very watery, not very good. It’s certainly drinkable but not very craft. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Recht simpel und nichtssagend. Zwar etwas Hopfen und ein wenig an Zitrusfruechten, dazu eine gute Portion Malz, aber irgendwie ist hier alles drin und doch nichts richtig. Keine Balance, aber dennoch trinkbar.
