thmsboyd (112) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle BBE: 31.08.15. Well-chilled. Cloudy amber pour with a small, tight, off-white head. High intensity sour wine gum aroma, some beetroot earthiness. Tropical and floral notes. Medium sourness with a perceptible underlying sweetness and a light bitterness - well-balanced. Medium-bodied with a slick texture, below average carbonation and a bitter (almost smokey) finish. I can’t really fault this. It doesn’t get full marks because there’s no real wow factor, but everything about it is rounded, balanced and skillfully crafted. Awesome.

Draft. A dark red beer with a huge lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, malt, caramel, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, caramel, and hops, leading to a bitter finish.
