2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Poured into my snifter glass I got a good whiff of malts. Sticking my nose in the glass only confirmed it. Aroma was pretty malty with slight hops. Flavor was semi sweet with hints of malt and hops, but nothing special.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a rich amber, with hints of red, topped with an inch or so of ivory foam. The nose straight off the bat is big juicy caramelised oranges, with a touch of pine tucked away. The taste is sweet toffee balanced with bitter oranges, like a good English marmelade. Medium bodied, easy drinking and given that this particular bottle is about a year old, I am impressed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate amber color with a two-finger off white head. Decent recent but fails to create any lacing. The nose is fairly one dimensional, mostly consisting of some mildly-toasted bread. There are some faint, earthy hops in there as well. The taste adds in a bit of a caramel touch along with fresh dough and toast. Slight bitterness and moderately dry. Medium body and a bit chewy with somewhat high carbonation levels. Drinks fairly well. Not their best, but solid nonetheless.
Serving type: on-tap

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, dark reddish brown, full dense tan head that fades, leaves heavy lacing. Aroma is moderate, soft hoppiness with evergreen character. Toasty malt flavor, mild bitter hop finish leaves a slight linger of pine trees. Simple and easy to drink. Medium body, low carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy amber pour with a thin, quickly dissipating off-white head. Aroma is caramel, toasted malts, and a light nuttiness. Faint trace of citrus hops. Pleasant, just not particularly strong. Taste is more hop forward than I imagined. Toasty malts are still evident, but are overpowered by a stale hop taste. Finish is dry and biscuity, like a weird pils. Mouthfeel is pretty good, a little heavier than light bodied. Drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12. oz bottle. Appearance deep and clear red with a generous off white head. Aroma caramel and some earthy hop aroma. Taste- Malty with note of caramel a tea -like tanic finish with a firm bitterness. Overall drinkable but has a distinct tea-like flavor that throws it off. I would like to try it again from a different batch.

From a bottle poured a dark amber color with a fair amount of head. Nice toasted malty hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

Not sure what the red marker on the label is. Brown pour with a decent head. Pretty yeasty aroma with a floral, malty undertone. Lightly tangy amber with a fair amount of sweet malt. It is not heavy on the hops, and has a mild aftertaste. Not bad.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is very bitter for a redale. Bitter at the end. If you have it on tap it can be placed at back of tongue and very nice. In bottle hops bitterness hits pretty hard.
