Cask (gravity dispense) at GBBF, day 2 in August 2007. Red /amber colour. No mention of dry hopping so perhaps that has become the norm rather than a variant in the intervening years. Agreeable flowery and fruity hop aroma. Light caramel and grassy hop on the palate. Quite light mouthfeel. Not a blockbuster but very pleasant drinking.

Pours a nice dark red/amber with a big tan head. There is a nice light sweetness and a lot of bitterness followed by some pine and citrus.

An excellent red ale that is full bodied without the corresponding strength. This allows one to enjoy another (easily).

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Intense pine-sprusy, super sweet fruity, malt-syrupy aroma, very pleasant. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter, with a bit sharp bitterness in aftertaste. Medium body, a bit too spongy mouthfeel. But seems it is mean to be easy drinkable pale ale. Weird but I don’t find it as amber ale at all.

Smell: Citrus Rind, Honey, Orange, Faint Caramel Malt.
Taste: Cirtus Hops, Caramel Malt, Slight Apple Tartness
Mouth-feel: Big Carbonation, Medium Body, Dry Finish, Lingering Tartness

Comments: This is an excellent Red Ale, that could be argued as a red IPA, as the hop character is huge!

Aftertaste is bitter, oak, fruity, round and lasting hop bitterness. Overall: good! Miss a bigger mouth feel. A little watery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Reddish amber beer with a beautiful fine foam, tastes very hoppy without being like an hop juice. Very clean taste despite the pronounced final bitterness. Some caramel sweetness. Very good.
