3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of malt, strong caramel, nuts, toasted bread, hint of dried dark fruits. Flavour is moderate sweet with a light to moderate bittersweet finish. An ’okay’ Red Ale, but I had hoped for a more pronounced US hoppy finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Biernavigatie, BB 30th July 2015, large sample. Clear amber to copper color, medium frothy light brown head. Aroma has slight citrussy hops, bit caramel, bit fruity yeast, slight burned caramel. Quite sweet toffee and fudge in taste, soft fruity bitterness. It’s basically caramel, toffee and fruity notes. Nicely balanced, not overly complex, easy drinker. Decent stuff.

Clear deep amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Thin malts, trace of caramel sweetness and thin dry cream. Modest dark orange and a half pinch of spice. Light semi dry finish. Clean but a bit wishy washy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from UBrew, London. It pours clear red-brown with a beige head. The nose is sweet, caramel, red cola, dried fruits, candy, berry and some brown bread. The taste is bitter-sweet, earthy bitterness, cola, pine, resin, mild astringency, brown bread, leather and a touch of alcohol with a dry, sort of earthy finish. An adequate amber. Drinks easy enough though.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2015 12oz can poured into a tulip glass on 01/05/15. Deep red colour with a small tan coloured head which quickly dissipates. Nice lacing, medium to soft carbonation. Aroma of fruit; wood, citrus and hops slightly sharp. Taste of toffee, hops, malt. Slightly sweet with a medium body. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Good, but not sessionable.

12oz can. Poured a dark, muddy orange color with a small off-white head. Aroma was mostly sweet malts, some nutty notes. Light resin and citrus on the finish. Flavor was a strong toasted malt character. Sweet malt notes. Pretty drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super deep and hazy amber coloured body with an almost brown glow and hints of ruby with a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head with an ugly soapy look. Aroma of alcohol, soap, water and the faintest bit of caster sugar. Light-bodied; Earthy flavour with some grapes, pine, earth, caramel and nuts and not much else - fairly bland and one-sided. Aftertaste shows only the same flavours again, and perhaps for only a few seconds at best - mild malt, earth, caramel and touches of vanilla - not too enjoyable. Overall, a relatively weak and mild beer with only subtle malt and caramel flavours showing through this at all. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 20-November-2014 for US$2,49 sampled at home in Washington on 10-February-2015.
