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.

Ktwse (4714) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2016
Pours clear, deep copper with low off-white head. Aroma of caramel, resin, light grapefruit, hints of rye. Taste is initial bitter, followed by a balancing caramel sweetness, before a lingering big bitterness. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation.

colui72 (941) - HONG KONG - DEC 15, 2015
Deep amber with a medium white head. Nice aroma of caramel, brown sugar, fruits and hops. Tastes medium bitter, with lot of fruit, caramel malts and hops. Very hoppy for its style, a very original beer, born from an amber ale and an IPA. Very tasty.

On tap at Mill on Constance, Fortitude Valley (charity event for brewers kettle explosion). Pours ruby red with nice frothy head. An excellent mix of bitter and sweet notes on the nose and the palate. My kind of beer, its a meal in a glass. Hang in there fine Gents!

Cunningham (7715) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2015
Clear deep nutty color with a thich tan head. Nice lacing. Powerful aroma and flavor in this one. Lots of grapefruit, bready and fruity. Maybe a bit to sweet for my likings. Still a decent and powerful ale.
[Bottle at Apotekergaarden in Grimstad, Norway]
