Holmen1 (6654) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2018
0,5 flaske fra Meny Borups alle, i lejligheden jan-18: efter en lang dag med oppussing, hva er da bedre enn å synke ned i godstolen med en øl (eller to...)? This one certainly hits the spot! Deilig aroma og smak med urter, skogbunn, engelske karamellsjokolader, rosiner og mere til. Nydelig, balansert ettersmak med høstens bær. "Strong ruby ale" iflg etiketten. Humlene er Target og Bramling Cross. Maltbasen er Pale ale, Dark Cara, Amber, Chocolate og Vienna. 23 IBU.

Bottle. 5.5%. Best before 31.05.18. Pours a slightly hazy (brownish) amber, with a diminishing, off-white/light tan head. Good lacing. Sweetish, malty aroma. Notes of dark fruit, plums, bread. A bit dusty, hint of chocolate. Cardboard hint as it warms. Flavour is pretty much the same, though without the cardboard. Bitter finish, a wee bit dry. Dark fruits. Lingering light grassy note. Overall pretty decent, fairly well-balanced. 22.12.17.

Plovmand (8685) - Grindsted, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2017
Bottle. It pours golden amberish with a medium off white head. Toffee, ripe fruit and caramel malty aroma. Some hoppy notes. The flavor is toasted malty with caramel and light cocoa notes. Bitter hoppy finish. Nice malty brew.

putrik (49) - - AUG 6, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2017 Genuin Engelsk Ruby Ale med övervikt ton från porter. Alla de klassiska smakerna på plats och fullgör det du valt och betalar för. Möjligt att alla 5,5 % inte är kvar i smaken.

AshtonMcCobb (7029) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2017
Bottle from Rheged. Appearance - deep amber brown with a slim head. Nose - orange, toffee, honeycomb. Taste - marmalade, caramel and spice. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture. The finish is rich but dry. Overall - interesting and complex ESB.

ManVsBeer (11183) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2017
Leeds Beer Festival 2017. Golden-amber, not overly bitter given it was advertised as this, but full and drinkable for its strength. It’s not really sessionable, but worth a try.

3.5
Skinnyviking (9767) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2017
50 cl. bottle at home. Medium high fluffy lasting off-white head. Hazy dark orange body. Fruity citrussy aroma and a hint of blackcourrant. Sweet smooth fruity blackcourrant straw flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long sweet finish.
