Bottle from/at/with Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Very good balance of these things: malty, bitter, warming, full flavoured, correct hopping level (not over the/a top). Went down good. May have contributed to me leaving half my beers on a bus.

Drunken bass players? Could be a long session indeed. Beer camp sounds like a fun thing to do. Probably be a urination outside tents issue though. Hope the Korg player is relatively sober.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle Beer Camp variety pack from BevMo: Poured a deep dark shade of amber red with mahogany tinting with a thick lather of head that looked similar to shaving cream. Nose is decked with sugary sweet malts that smell perfectly toasted while a slight nuttiness comes through as well. The flavor is semi sweet with a moderate taste of toffee like candy stemming from the quality malts put in usage by Sierra Nevada. This is a solid effort beer and passes the grade in my beer camp recruits.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
THOUGHTS: Both malty and hoppy. Like a red IPA. A less roasty black IPA. Very nice and different.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark, brownish red with a small, off-white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma had moderate dark bread, cookie and caramel; hints of chocolate; light to moderate pine and citrus hops; cherry; raspberry; and maybe even a little strawberry. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was heavily sweet and moderately bitter with a long duration. There was caramel malt, dark bread, pine and citrus hops, cherry, cookie, resinous hops, berry and cake.The medium to full body was fairly oily with fizzy carbonation and a slightly alcoholic finish.

Bottles from the beer camp 12 pack. Finally, I have found something that rivals hop head red and isnt a 12 dollar bomber. However, this is not mass produced either, so I guess I will keep searching. Red color - tan head - loads of hops in the nose. Taste is crisp, hoppy, kind of thick and malty. Really good beer, the best of the beer camp 12.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Dirty reddish-brown, strong pine hop aroma with some sweet caramel behind, smooth, easy drinking but with a hop/malt wallop at the end that makes me wish I bought a whole case. Very good.
