#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, there’s 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-it’s-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 you’d expect in a beer half this strength.

Dzhigga (349) - Kirov, RUSSIA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle. Clear ruby-orange color with small unsteady head. Aroma of cranberry, grapefruit, some pepper notes. Taste is medium bitter, some earthy and citrus notes. Finish is long, with nice load of bitterness. 9% ABV can’t be detected in taste or aroma, only by thickness of body. Nice beer!

Bottled at Ugglan, Stockholm. Hazy nut brown, small head. Caramelly nose. Sweet with medium-full body and rounded, sticky mouthfeel. Syrup, molasses, not much else. A sticky mess.

Nice rusty brown appearance with some head that disappears quickly. Rich tastes of citrus, caramel, raisin some vanilla and a balanced aftertaste of alcohol

ANZUShophunter (468) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2015
From bottle in tulip glass. Beautiful head on a crimson body. Rich taste as expected from an Imperial Red: toffee through to citrus. Plenty of ethanol in the finish.

nihtila (3668) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2015
31.7.2014. Very dark red. Aroma is familiar Brewdog, piny grapefruity hops. Also zest, red berries, grass. Taste has first sweet toffee, turning into intense piny hops, showing plenty of malts as well, and wood. Oily. Dangerously delicious for the abv.

fellebag (1510) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Small cream colored head. Clear red brown color. Aroma is maple syrup, leaves, berries, wood, honey, hops. Taste is sweet syrup with sugar berries.

rikstar (2604) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2015
0,33l fles thui. Uitgeschonken diep robijnrood met een witte kraag. Geur is zomer fruit, aardbei perzik, pruimen met alcohol en cacao in de achtergrond. Smaak start zoetzuur met rode grapefrui, met.een bittertje in de afdronK, alcohol is duidelijk aanwezig mondgevoel is iets dun met een wrange nasmaak. Mwah, niet helemaal mijn bier

MoritzF (9959) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2015
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, dark amber colour with a short and tanned foamy head. Slightly nutty and syrupy malty aroma with notes of caramel and juicy fruity notes of dark and red berries, accompanied by accents of spices and spruce. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a calm carbonation. Slightly molassy dark malty base with notes of toffee, cough syrup and fruit cocktail, also spicy herbal and slightly resiny hops; sweet-bitter malt-accented and slightly syrupy finish with a good dash of spicy, resiny and subtle fruity hops. The alcohol is deceptively well-hidden. 28.I.15
