4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer is spot on! It pours a dark ruddy/cloudy copper colour and has a finger and a half or so of head which disippates quickly. Grassy, earthy hop aroma...This beer is loaded with english hops (Challenger, maybe FUGGLES??) which marries nicely with caramelly, toffee flavored malts. I believe I can taste a hint of complex Maris Otter malts. This brewer knew what he was up to - this beer is extremely well balanced. Overall taste is wonderful in this medium bodied, low to moderately carbonated, smooth drinking beer. This beer would pair wonderfully with an array of fine foods - or just by itself. Brewed with the spring water drawn from the headsprings of the Otter River, this beer has become a regular in my portfolio.

500 ml bottle. Pours a clear ruby red with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and fruit. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, caramel, fruit a hint of chocolate and a light, bitter hoppy finish. Medium body with oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

Bottle, 500ml. A dark rubi beer with a creamy head. Aroma is of bananas and alcohol with a hint of dry fruits. Taste is bitter with some astringency, slightly dense, but at the end fell flat and became watery.

Cervesa roja tipicament anglesa. Un pèl massa amarga pel meu gust. No repetiria però suposo que pot ser del gust de qui agradi aquest estil de cervesa.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear light reddish brown with a medium khaki head that fades slowly and leaves good lacing. Not much on the nose, and the same for the taste. Slight dark malt taste with a mild hop finish. Forgettable.
