A hoppy ruby red ale at heart, this uplifting beer raises a classic British style to new heights. Sometimes it’s right to deviate from the normal, the average or the traditional. Sometimes it’s right to embrace the new, the exciting and the different. Try our Beer and Cheese Soup recipe or drink this beer at a BBQ (or with a Sunday roast) when the malt and the meat will dance together on your tastebuds. Citrus and floral notes from the aromatic New World hops perform a spectacular balancing act against the rich and robust smooth caramel and bready sweetness of the traditional English malts, before a long, moreish and crisp citrus finish leaves you gasping for more.

Bottle at home listening to Maximo Park "A Certain Trigger". Grassy hop aroma. Hoppy taste, subtle spicy nose, leads to a bitter finish.

spacecube (892) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
330ml botte, pours amber with an off white head. Nice bready malt backbone, bit of rye perhaps, a bit of smoke and a citrus zing . Balanced beer, light body, thin feel, lively carbonation, finish medium bitter.

floydian1 (1004) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 3, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2014 An outstanding English-style red ale. From a 330ml bottle it pours hazy copper-amber with a frothy light beige head of good duration and lacing. Heaps of fresh hops on the nose with citrus, orange, grass and leather on top of a robust toasty caramel malt bill. Palate is malty and moderately sweet with a refreshing citrusy hop bitterness that lingers. Medium bodied with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Lovely.

AshtonMcCobb (2675) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle from the Stockbridge Tap. Appearance - amber with some red hue going on. Big fluffy head. Nose - initially too cold so only getting hops - grapefruit. Then as it warms some smoke followed by some burnt toffee comes to the fore. Taste - citrus sweets and as it warms the toffee comes through. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - decent to good amber.

Buongiorgio00 (779) - - JUL 3, 2014
Una red ale come si deve, a tutto tondo. Non aggressiva e bilanciatissima: gusto con note floreali e citriche che danzano su uno sfondo maltato e caramellato, finale amaro persistente. Molto buona!!

Maris (1000) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 21/6/2014. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a huge uneven foamy head. The aroma features some caramel, bread and dark fruit, with some metallic and basement notes. These elements repeat when you take a sip, with a sharp fruitiness most prominent, along with a tart, slightly harsh bitterness closing things out. Has a medium body and is slightly over-carbed. This one just doesn’t really work for me - it lacks balance, and the flavours just don’t seem properly integrated. Disappointing given that other beers from this brewer have tended to be good to excellent.

Bottle. Deep red ale. Fruit cherry aroma. Sweet malty finish. High carbonation, 2.5? hop aftertaste. Decent offering.
