Pours a dark red with a latte - colored sponge foam head. Strong malt aroma. Solid malt taste with an equal amount of hops bittering. Well carbonated with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

Smell is mild and malty, taste is the same, sorta watery, slightly hoppy and quite carbonated...hops get stronger as it warms

Nose is toffee, red berry, with light pine and citrus. Taste is pine, malt, red berry, slight rye then floral and peppery tones touch of lemon grass and salt in the finish. It’s more ESB than I finished, and the nose and taste don’t marry well for me. It’s OK

Has a really nice malty taste to it. Almost an iced tea flavor. Easy to drink, and very little hops. Bready, bright, crisp without being boring. Very nice Amber ale, When you want malt go here.

CelticBrew (869) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle a surprisingly colorful pale copper, lots of orange hues with bright golds and rosy reds. Aroma is citrusy and piney, a touch of malt. Flavour is of caramel and malt, but well balanced by the hops. Aftertaste is quite malty as well, which lingers a bit. Overall a decent amber, however not that memorable.

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2014
From keg at Brewdog Shoreditch. Pours clear amber brown with off white head. Aroma is malty, citrus, hops, some fruitiness. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter, dry, hoppy, some citrus, bit sour, roasted malt hints. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with medium carbonation. Ok.

Bottle. Another winner from Stone. They should brew more lower gravity stuff because they are so good at it. Deep amber in color. Medium head. Aroma is really well balanced as is the flavor.

Bottle from red elephant truro uk. Aroma is floral, citrus, piney hops and malt. Taste is lovely - citrus and piney hops with a nice balanced maltiness and smooth bitter aftertaste. A great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours a fairly clear deep amber, with a medium off-white head, which lasts well and leaves very good lacing. Toffee malt provides a base for floral, pine and leafy hops notes, which make for a very pleasant aroma. Lemon and floral hops and almost tonic water flavour up front lead into rich toffee and rye bread malt in the mid-palate. Rye bread persists into the finish, where it is joined by pine hops. A very well-balanced and flavoursome amber ale.
