Mary Rose Premium Red Ale
Bottle on Lesbos as Septem Thursday’s Premium Red Ale. A hoppy Irish, nice! Otherwise pleasant malts, caramel, with a healthy bitterness, quite refreshing without needing to be super-dry. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation. Nice.

Mary Rose Premium Red Ale
Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed medium reddish-orange color with a huge head of an off white color. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave big streaks of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is heavy of a caramel and molasses smell mixed with some other smells of a yeasty and bready smell. Along with these aromas comes some lighter notes of a sour lemon and a bit of a pine smell. Taste – The taste begins with a drier roasted bready taste with a lighter amount of a sour, almost funky, taste upfront. The funk seems to get stronger while the little bit of caramel and molasses that are present upfront fade more and more. Bits of grass and pine as well as a decent showing of lemon come more toward the end, leaving one with a somewhat sour red ale flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is average. For the lighter abv and slightly more sour tastes of the beer the lighter body is great, but that said a little bit of a carbonation level would have likely helped to make for an easier drinking and more refreshing brew overall. Overall – Not a bad brew as it has some nice drier slightly toasted bready tastes mixed with some more sour and lightly hopped taste. One to maybe try once to get a taste, but it is not the best out there in my opinion.

33cl bottle, served in Shaker. The label says "Thursday’s Premium Red Ale". Pours ruby red with medium off-white head. Aroma is earth, caramel and hints of herbs. Taste is the same with and interesting touch of ripe fruits. Dry finish, the sweetness is there also but nothing significant. Some people probably would expect more sweetness in a beer like this, but I prefer it way it is. Medium mouthfeel, very efervescent. Quite nice overall, good job.

Mary Rose Premium Red Ale
Bottle in Kos. Pours deep copper becoming chestnut with a generous lacing tan collar. Immediately beguiling nostril of doppelbockesque battered sausage, raisin, milk chocolate, deep honeyed prune. Not bad. Flavour builds on that promise with rounded chocolate-robed juicy dried fruits; lightly peppered wooden notes, fudge, lingering carob and lactic chocolate. Elements of English brown ale, German or Dutch bock, Belgian dubbel dovetailed. Without wishing to sound patronising it’s mature, rounded, deeply drinkable stuff.

Septem Red Ale in a 330 ml bottle with a BB date of 10-2015. Purchased and consumed in the Corinth area of Greece. Deep red-brown body with a decent of rather short-lived head. Very earthy, dank hop aroma with some sweet overtones. Better flavor. Moderately complex. Almost as sweet as bitter initially, but it has a bitter aftertaste.

In short: weird red ale.
Pours quite clear amber with some off white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Malty, caramel, fruity aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is malty, caramel, harsh mouthfeel, a bit unpleasant.

Aroma discreto con un primer toque azufrado que se va pronto. Luego coge un aire muy clásico, con paladar seco y sabroso, aunque no muy duradero, y un amargor final muy equilibrado. Carbonatacion media.

So I pour this firey brew into a chalice with no chance of consideration as to its need nor origin; sure, what the hell. It has a huge head, decent semi-foggy brownish-body at this juncture in history. The aroma is solid hops with a hint of malt and hazelnut, not a bad thing really, a strong hint of decent brew-ness. Flavour is no hint of savoury hazelnut but rather just blaséee stuff with no resolution. very weak watery palate. A shame, overall, since it should have been so much better.

Truly straightforward and a bit unexciting. The pour is bright amber with a soapy beige head. The nose is bright and malty with toasted caramel and light nutty aromas. A bit sweet in the mid palate with a light roasted malt, toffee,caramel and nut notes. Very mild mannered brew.
