#Mashtag 2014 - a beer for the people, by the people.
The #Mashtag concept is simple. We invited the public to vote on each aspect of the brew, from hops to malt to the special twist and even the label design, and from the thousands of possibilities this presented, the result is an imperial red ale, brewed with copious speciality malts, a global blend of hops, and blood orange, lemon peel and orange peel.
On the nose, theres a riot of citrus, in many forms, from orange pith to lemon zest, via lime juice and even lemongrass. Fresh, bright resinous notes blend with light toasty malt aromas.
The palate is intense with toffee, with tiny hints of tobacco smoke coming through in little bursts, but the star attraction is an all-out bitter orange avalanche. A slightly psychotic, orange-that-thinks-its-a-grapefruit character builds upon and intensifies the hop bitterness, squaring up against the rich sweet malt base. The result is a huge red ale with a drinkable quality youd expect in a beer half this strength.

Bire de couleur ambre assez fonc avec des reflets rubis, la mousse est de couleur marron clair et se dissipe peu peu. Au nez on va sentir des armes de fruits des bois (La Mure) et une certaine acidit. En bouche elle va se trouver peu gazeuse et assez sche... elle rappe un peu le palais, elle va avoir une amertume assez franche, on va tre sur des saveurs un peu bois et amre.

Hopmaestro (1441) - rebro, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2015
Backlog from lost WF2014 notes: Aroma is fruit marmalade with bitter orange peels. Taste is sweet malts, a little strawberry freshness with a sticky syrup sensation. A tad too sweet, but still a fine brew.

Clear red-brown colour. Fresh, fruity aroma with a fair whack of citrus. Despite its strength it is not heavy or sticky. Moderately bitter with plenty of fruity hop flavour.

lord_totenkopf (314) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 23, 2015
Colour is dark amber-reddish, medium light amber head. Aroma of dried orange peel, dried citruses and some hidden, light coffee-like bitterness. The taste opens with malty sweetness, nuts, cereals and some very subtle caramel. Finish is bitter with some chocolate-like notes. Aftertaste brings the hops forward with pine and bitter lemon.

leghorn99 (256) - roma, ITALY - MAY 22, 2015
Il colore marrone con riflessi rossastri, di buona limpidezza; la schiuma non molta, abbastanza grossolana, ma di buona persistenza. Al naso in evidenza arancia a scorza di limone, succo di lime e lemongrass. Fresche note resinose si fondono con leggeri aromi di malto. Sapore leggermente maltato, con base di melassa, note di caramello; prosegue con un cocktail di frutta, luppolo, erbe e una leggera speziatura. Il corpo medio-pieno, la carbonazione leggera; gioca molto sul dolce-amaro, finale leggermente sciropposo con un buon pizzico di piccante, resina e luppolo.
