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.

_angst_ (3723) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2013
Draught @ CBC2013. Pours amber with a frothy beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving a small soapy trace on the glass. Smell is fruity with bread, pineapple, papaya, grapefruit juice, grass, pine needles, lemon zest, soil, moist wood and hints of caramel. Taste is bitter, fruity and tiny malty with bread, biscuits, grapefruit juice, pine needles, freshly cut grass, moist soil, resinous wood and hints of caramel, shampoo and raisins. Mouthfeel is round, soft, slightly oily bitter, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter with biscuits, grapefruit rinds, grass, pine, resinous wood, soil and lemon zest. Quite good for a malty IPA...

tiong (5229) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Draught @ Malja, Kuopio

Pours dark brownish red with a small bubbly head. Aroma of berries, fruits, hops and mild tartness. Taste is sweetish, malty and fruity with hints of berries and lactic tartness. Finish is smooth, malty and caramely with mild lactic tartness. Decent, but feels a bit off and the lactic tartness is a bit disturbing. I got the last drops of the keg so that might explain it. Would like to try this again from a fresh keg/bottle. 7-3-5-2-10 = 2.7

Re-rated on 21.11.2013. 330ml bottle from Bierkompass. A much more balanced and tastier, malty amber ale with a touch of biscuity and nutty notes and hoppiness. Quite balanced.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a murky dark brown with a frothy off white head and lots of lace. The aroma is rich red berry fruit. The flavour is medium bitter with a sweet, fruity, malt, liqourice palate. The consistency is rich and rather smooth. A super beer from Siren IMO.

wheresthepath (1833) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2013
Cask at the Alehouse, Reading. Pours a striking ruby-brown with a loose beige head. Beautifully rich, smooth mouthfeel with a light sparkle on the tongue. Caramel, orange and a little chocolate up front before a lot of pine and some grapefruit bring in a great fresh hoppy taste. Candied pineapple followd along behind, with a bit of peach. Happy little burps of pine and pineapple with lingering fresh hops kept me smiling until bedtime. The pub had lots of other interesting beers on but this was so good that- unusually for me- I stuck with this one. Fabulous stuff, huge thanks to the brewer. Happy days!
