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.

Decent though overrated amber. As expected, the hop taste comes through far better as the beer warms. Well malted up front, sauvignon hops are there mid sip on, something more subtle for this style. Good drinkability.Slightly red appearance.

I do like a red ale and this is a well balanced one. Enough malty backbone to reminisce over and hoppy on the nose to add some fruit. Fairly full-on snow globe effect, but that doesn't bother me and Soren & crew are aware of this

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max's place. Thanks Lior D. Amber. Malt, caramel, stale hops, sweetish, bitter finish. Not fresh enough.

sam_uk93 (90) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2017
Pours a deep, dark amber with an off white head. Aroma is slight fruit, malty, hops. Taste is heavy malt up front, leading to a very slight bitterness, still heavy malt throughout, some sweet fruit, ending with a hint of pine. Lingers for a while, gaining bitterness slightly. Low carbonation, medium bodied. Lovely beer!

Heidbummer (1150) - SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2017
Taster, six degrees north. Pours muddy red, off white head. Huge fruity and floral aroma, which is contrasted by the dry, pepper and spice taste. An odd contrast, and not completely sure it works. Interesting.
