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.

danlo (2472) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
330ml bottle. Dark red colour, foamy beige head leaving some lacing and aroma of malt caramel with raisins & floral, fruity, citrus hop. Taste is biscuity malt with roasted notes and orange & grapefruit citrus, earthy, pine, hoppy bitterness. Oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

JorisPPattyn (9379) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2014
Small, all but gone fast tannish head over chestnut-brown beer with a faint haze. Caramel, even some toffee. Burnt notes mixing with fruity USA hops. A jumble at face value, but definitely attractive. Ripe banana, dry hopbales, molasses, grapefruit. Sweet / roasted / fresh hopbitterness. Maybe not the first try at this combination, but with a really novel, successfull result. Remarkably balanced flavourwise. Dark sultanas, roasted dried figs, molasses, baked pisang - and hops... Spritzy, slightly slick-caramelized; medium bodied at best. Another remarkable craft intruder in CAMRA-land. Shocking!

330ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
Really deep red, persistent beige head. Quite heady hop aroma, some almost winey sharpness. Later, you’re left with heavier sticky dark caramel, some cakiness. Fairly watery in the mouth, crisp carbonation. Dark burnt treacly malts. Herbal to grassy hop aromatics in the mouth, some odd chalkiness. Does have that "red" aspect that I’m really keen on. Finish caramelly, and with bitter leafy hops. Grapefruity too, and with a metalllic tingle too. Kinda nice in some ways, but the drinkability’s not so high. Could have done a "danish tick", as there’s nothing interesting after the first sip.

TheJvd (1021) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a red glow and a medium off-white head. Aroma has toast, perfume, malts, raisin, toffee and some grapefruit. Taste has raisin, chocolate, grapefruit and a medium bitter finish, which is quite dry. Medium body and carbo. A bit strange, but quite tasty considering the abv.

flying_pig (1408) - SCOTLAND - DEC 23, 2013
330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.80):
Hoppy with some tropical fruits, pine and citrus along with some sweeter malts and a few darker fruits as well. A good balance with nothing coming acorss too strong or overpowering, the aroma is rich with some nice caramel too.
Dark brown with some red & a 0.5cm llight tan head that holds well.
Hoppy with pine & grapefruit plus lots of bitterness and some citrus fruits plus the sweet, caramel malts that appeared in the aroma as well. Quite a pleasant taste but perhaps just that little bit too bitter in places.
Medium bodied and bitter with a smooth and creamy feel to it. Definitely hoppy and sweet with a dry, bitter infused finish that goes down well.

A nice cross between an American IPA and a hop-filled red ale that had a nice balance between flavours and a pleasant, smooth body that results in a pretty good beer.

Deep clear amber color, small beige head. Caramelly, "ryeish" aroma. Medium-bodied. Caramel, rye, sweetness, malty, not so much bitterness. Good.
