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.

Hop_Hedonist (672) - Perth, - JAN 22, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 Retaste - tap at The Norfolk - Biscuit malt dominant - enough hops to keep my interest - quite thick on the tongue with malty aftertaste. Tasty. A big beer which kicks sand in the face of lesser beers. Nice one even though not my preferred style - always quality from 8 Wired.

sam_uk93 (78) - 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 (981) - 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.
