Late Red is a complex, richly-flavoured autumn hop ale. With an appropriately Autumnal auburn hue, this premium beer achieves a perfect balance between rich, dark malt flavours, and a strong, robust hoppiness.

Not bad at all. Hoppy like an IPA but malty and dry like a red ale. Smooth and soapy like a bitter. Goes down very easily. A solid English brew - good on a cold autumn/winter evening.

hohops (365) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2014
Pours amber, dark, clear, little head to speak of. Fruity hoppy aroma. Taste is toffee, with raisiny brambley hints, nuttiness as well. Fairly standard Shepherd Neame bitter.

Erzengel (3553) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
Rating from 2009. Kastanienbraune Farbe, sehr angenehme kräuterige Hopfennote, die gut zur Ale-Malzigkeit passt. Sehr langer Hopfenintensiver, käuteriger Nachgeschmack. Dezent bitter. Leichte Säuerlichkeit und angenehm milde Ale-Note. --> Sehr sehr toll! 14/13/13/14

Cask @ the brewery. Aroma is flowery hops and caramel. Flavour is the same with some bitterness and a touch of liquorice. Nice.

niquillis (1203) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2013
On cask at Prince of Wales, Herne Bay. Pours red brown with off white froth. Decent red ale, quite a malty back drop with a spice front. A little thin.

jd543 (404) - SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2013
Red-brown with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt and floral hops. Taste was well balanced, sweet initially with a sour and bitter finish. Oily texture with light carbonation. Decent beer.

Leighton (11874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2013
Cask at Tom Cribb, Shep Neame, London. Pours clear amber with a fine, frothy white head. Fruity aroma, some orange and berries, light caramel. Light to medium sweet flavor, low bitterness, bready malts, more berries. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderately sweet finish, more bready, lightly toasted malts, light fruity sugars, suggestions of caramel. Mild character but OK.
