DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2012
American style red ale with a little too much roasted malt and little too few hops in to be great. A few more of each and we'd have Cascadian Black. Which is good... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the Euston Tap. Clear dark red - amber beer. Thin white head. Light dry smooth palate, semi dry. Sweetish red berry fruits! Which is fine except there ain’t much else going on - could almost pass for a fruit beer. Odd! Semi dry finish. Drinkable.

tombyars (1354) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2012
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in September 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale ruby red in colour with a thick buff head. Smooth roast grain notes long in the nose. Thin but creamy texture to the mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with sweet toffee and redcurrant flavours in the mouth. Earthy notes present in the bitter hop prickle aftertaste. Finish is slightly malty with tart redcurrant fruit and cask woody notes still there in the mouth. A decent session bitter.

Malty taste with notes of caramel, red fruit, orange peel and a balanced bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with some caramel sweetness. Quite nice.
