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 (6669) - 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.

Bottled. Dark red appearance - light head. Roasty caramel, aroma. Smoky bitter sweet tast - well balanced. Medium bodied. Very drinkable beer

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.

Skinnyviking (9584) - 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.

FatPhil (16359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2017
Draught (Southampton, London)
Bread and butter aroma, a bit sweet, gently spiced. Full smooth palate, gentle carbonation. Does cover the alcohol well, seems like a low-4 not a mid-5. Taste is also sweet and bread and butter. Ends a bit flat and dead, makes the taste feel heavier over time. Perhaps too sweet.

JorgeLee (2134) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2016
Cask, Euston Tap, with Muggins. Clear deep ruby colour. Sweet, caramelly, fruity, rich. Some hint of booze. Nice spicy finish, just enough bitterness to prevent it becoming cloying. Good coating of the mouth. A pretty good example of this very English style.

CloakedDagger (2575) - - OCT 12, 2016
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear amber with a lacing, off-white head. Caramelly, butterish aroma. Medium body, rich, sweet caramel and toffee, only a little late hops. I guess the diacetyl is technically allowed in this beer, whether or not you like it is a different question. 121016

futre7 (238) - Taipei, TAIWAN - SEP 4, 2016
RT Mart in Yong-He, New Taipei City. Ruby-rust in colour with a decent head and great lacing. Nose is malt, toffee and raisin. Pleasant flavour with some chocolate and again dark fruits and malty bread. Slightly bitter aftertaste , but in a nice way. Very solid beer. Price over here tho.

ekstedt (6872) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2016
Cask at Southampton Arms, London. Clear copper, low head. Caramelly and fudgy malt aroma, fruity esters. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Dry, medium bitterness.
