3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask handpull at CP&K, Pimlico. Strawberry fruity. Strawberry and a touch of diacetyl. Bit of biscuit. Maybe a bit rich on the mouth. No dryness, no big hop presence on the finish. Bit of tart strawberry on finish. Good and interesting and reminded me of the BrewDog Zephyr that tasted to me of strawberry shortcake. I expected more PNW hops on an American red ale interpretation.

10.1.2014. Tumma sakea punaruskea, vaalean ruskea vaahto. Makea tuoksu, jossa hieman humalaa. Tuoksussa myös hotain kypsää/rusinaa, ei niin miellyttävää. Maussa paahtunutta mallasta, hieman makeutta ja humalan katkeroa. Hieman erilainen yhdistelmä.
