aenima (267) - Askim, - JAN 8, 2014
Aroma of citrus with some caramel. The taste has more taste from hops than the aroma is telling. A good beer!

GuideDogSaint (350) - Epsom, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Cask at the Euston Tap listed as 5.8%, according to their website this is Rouge Red Hop Ale but I guess this is the right beer. Pours mid brown with a thin white head. Hoppy pine aroma, sweet finish. Close your eyes and this is an IPA.

mR_fr0g (3365) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2014
Cask at Euston tap. Hazed amber orange coloured pour with a lasting loose greyish off white head. Aroma is big berry fruit, spicy herbal hop. A bit unusual but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Flavour is nutty, light caramel malts, spicy grassy hop. Some grainy tanin in the finish. Bitterness is assertive and grassy / citrus in nature. Slightly rough. Palate is semi sweet and chewy, low carbonation. Nice stuff.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Bottled at Nohn Scott’s, Kyrkogatan Deep amber with a small, tan head. Sweet and malty aroma and flavour with red berries and semi-dark toffee. Medium to high bitterness. Chewy mouthfeel.
