COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask conditioned and keg unpasteurised br A 5.8% west coast bright red ale: burnt raisins and crackers balanced by citrus. Liquid Mistress is our femme fatale – mysterious, seductive and disarming. She draws and charms drinkers with her full, red colours. You will soon desire her biscuit-and-burnt-raisin malt base, and peach and grapefruit spark. Her devious hop hit will steal your breath.

On tap at Fermentoren, Copenhagen. Reddish brown colour, moderate off-white head. The brewery’s description: "biscuit / crackers and burnt raisin malt base" and a "peach and grapefruit spark" seems quite appropriate both for aroma and flavour. Quite enjoyable, would buy again.

chimpgibbon (424) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2013
I knew this was going to be good as soon as I poured it. Deep red lovely head and instantly glorious hop aroma. Nose dominated by the hops, but what hops! Resinous overripe fruit and that glorious cheese factor! Taste is wonderfully nuanced with dark fruits duking it out with sharp yellow fruit on a bed of gorgeous and subtle maltiness. Really great beer.

Flavour of toast, light-roasted malts, chocolate/cocoa, grapefruit, citrus, some tropical fruits, firm dry bitter finish with a little cocoa. Light-bodied. Really tasty mix of a best bitter, ipa, and mild ale imo.

lusikka (7102) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Draught @ Cerveseria La Resistència, Barcelona. Pours a cloudy bright golden colour with a white lacy foamy head. Aroma of strong floral hops, pale malts and mellow caramel notes. Flavour is really bitter with floral hops, pine, grapefruit, grass and some sweetness. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and really soft carbonation. Finishes very bitter and rather dry. Some alcohol warmth in the finish as well. Great stuff.

RexTalionis (3011) - FINLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Draught. Pours reddish brown in color with a small off-white head. Some piney notes, sweet ripe tropical fruits and light notes of chocolate. A bit of dark fruity sweetness mixed with grapefruit bitterness in taste. Nice one, works really well. Perhaps there’s some slightly burnt notes too. Nice amber ale indeed.
