3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear deep amber-red with a fat finger of off-white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is caramel and bready malt, light grassy hops. (6/10) Taste is balanced moderate sweet and bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate to low sustained carbonation, decent bitter finish. (4/5)
I’ve rated this one before, but ended up with it in a combo pack and figured, why not re-do it for Halloween. I think this is a more accurate rating than my previous one(s). A decent, solid, reliable performer. (14/20)

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
~Strong caramel, toffee, raisin maltiness with earthy UK hops, bready and light roastiness. Sweet mouth watering aroma.
~Pours slightly hazy brownish amber color with lasting small creamy tan head.
~Roasty, bready flavor with good balance of earthy hops. Caramel. Roast dominates slightly.
~Medium light bodied with medium CO2, lingering bitterness that attacks the palate.
~ Aroma is wonderful. Wish the crystal malts would shine more in the flavor. Bitterness is a bit high. I think this would be better as a slightly sweeter beer. Still enjoyed it and may buy again to have friend or family member try it out.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep ruby color with medium fluffy grey head. Floral hop notes, not too fruit-aromatic some caramel malty taste in there as well. Well-balanced malty bitter taste, caramel and bitter chocolate. Also has that super-smooth UK ale mouthfeel. Very decent well-balanced UK red ale, one of my favourites. Also one of the beers that awoke my interest in ales.
