Exactly the kind of red that I love. Plenty of hoppy freshness - citrus, grapefruit and some pine - against a sweet caramel and biscuit malt. Goes down very easily. Could be dangerous.

(Bottle) Foggy brown-red body with big tan head. Aroma of roasted caramel malt and dark fruit; cherry, prune. Medium body. Alcohol is up front; malty caramel, some pine; a little smoke.

An all-around solid performer. Good colour, flavour, hop character, and balance.

Towey1989 (3159) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2017
Bottle at The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a slightly hazy amber colour with a frothy beige head. Aroma of caramel, toast, pine, some red berries, slight orange and subtle spicy hops. Taste of caramel, toast, resin, red berries, some jammy fruits, slight orange, a little grapefruit and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, fruity, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. A really flavourful amber ale, perfectly balanced. Lots of caramel and fruit with great citrus, spice and resinous hoppiness. Very nice.

Hopmaestro (1717) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2017
Aroma is "red" malty and dusty with a sweet lingering sensation. Taste is dark toffee with a light brown sugar touch. Red berries and murky hay. There is something in here that does not appeal to me at all and totally destroys the experience. Is it licorice? Can’t come to terms with this one.

3.7
Linnet (1890) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2016
Malty, caramel, resin, light raisins, alcohol. Ruby colour, big beige head, good amount of lacing. Big bite, noticable sweetness, lightly salty, caramel and resin. Medium body, sticky feel, average carbonation, sweet and bitter finish.

3.8
MelvinKalksma (1681) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque dark orange/dark brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium off-white/beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops, citrus and grapefruit.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. What a great, thick and creamy head. The aroma could have been stronger thanks to this. Lovely soft caramel/hop flavour too. Great beer for its style.

3.8

Intense pine, caramel, marmalade, bitter citrus fruits. Hazy amber, medium, off-white, creamy head. Medium sweet and light bitter. More piney hops, bitter orange, dark malts, soft carnation, medium bodied, long-duration, quite bitter and dry finish. Super intense and powerful Amber Ale, great flavours and complexity. Bottle at Sea Containers, Southwark.
