COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tall Poppy - India Red Ale This is an ale that is not afraid of standing tall among other great beers. The intense, sharp and fruity hoppiness is backed by its complex, caramel-like malty structure. Big, yet refreshing. Bold but balanced. This beer has been designed to have it all, to be the greatest common denominator.

berkshirejohn (6660) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2017
33cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. An attractive reddish copper colour with a thick, pale caramel coloured head; well balanced with a fruity, malty, caramel body and a resinous, piney bitterness; then some citrus and spice leading to a drier finish with lingering candied peel. Outstanding.

MelvinKalksma (1725) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2017

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, bread, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque dark orange/dark brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and orange; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Good beer overall and even more so for its style. Feels like there is a bit too much yeast, because it is slightly too balanced. Both the malts and the hops could have been more bombastic. Thanks to this the aroma could have been stronger and the finish less dominated by bread.
