Red Hop Ale
Rouge is our Red Hop Ale, deep ruby red in colour, dark malts provide real depth to the body of this beer which provide a great platform for hops such as Simcoe & Centennial to be painted on. The result is a deeply rich malty/hoppy marriage of styles. Deliciously moreish at any time of year.

teorn88 (6742) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2015
Backlog rating. 33cl bottle from Utobeer, London. It pours a clear ruby/copper color with medium beige head. Aroma is grassy and piney, with dried leaves, citrus peel, tangerine and biscuit. Taste is lightly sweet upfront with more dry grassy bitterness on the back of the tongue. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok amber

(bottle 0.33) Pleasant aroma, citrus with malty hints. Dark orange almost clear. Beige head, leaves nice lacing. Light sweet with nice bitter aftertaste, maybe little astringent. Light bodied, bit oily, soft carbonation. Nice beer, well balanced, pleasant surprise after trying Maelstrom.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Tap at Euston Tap. Bright amber pour. Really spicy/peppery hop aroma over a moderately sweet malt base. A bit of fruit and perhaps a touch of tartness starting in this one. It doesn’t really detract but it’s there. Zippy and juicy. A bit of a vineous note on the back. Lovely.

gad905 (202) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2015 Draft at BD ShepBush. As ?Rouge?, 5.8%. Pours clear copper red with decent-sized cream head that hangs around a bit before fading to a skin. Nose of juicy tropical fruits, pineapple, grapefruit, sweet orange, plus some toasty malt, brown bread. Tastes medium sweet, brown bread crusts, toasted cereal, some cinder toffee, medium bitter, some juicy citrus and some floral. Nice balance. Medium-light body, oily, moderate carb, long hoppy finish, still with some juice and some floral. Gotta say, on this showing I have a lot of time for this beer - so many Ambers are overhopped or underhopped, or get the balance of toasty caramel right, but this one has good balance.

NordicV (1959) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2014
Rödorange öl med smutsvitt skum som lämnar fina gardiner. Doft av malt, citrusfrukter och lätt jordiga toner. Samma återkommer i smaken tillsammans med lite tallbarr och kåda. Mycket bra för en öltyp som inte är min favorit.

ElDesmadre (3222) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Strawberry tea dominated by resin and geranium, some eau de Cologne as well. Quaffable, body not too full, medium bitterness, medium intense flavour. Very quaffable. Oh, did I already write that? Nevermind. Very quaffable indeed.
