Keg & Bottle conditioned; Regular. Has been seen on Cask.

A delicious, refreshing red ale. It brings together a range of 6 specialty malts and New World hops. This creates a characterful ale with a toffee, caramel and dark fruit palate, finishing with soft piney, resinous hop notes.

Tried on cask. Looks ok, reddish brown with fluffy head, smells like a pine cleaner which is strange. Quite sweet but then bitter like grapefruit. Strange but tasty.

Keg. Pours dark amber brick red brown with a medium thin tan head subsiding average to a thin rim. Scent is scentless maybe a bit of brown sugar. Taste is medium coffee and medium dense amber ale. Quite bitter but not without some brown sugar. Finish is smooth and a bit biting. Very great beer.

On tap at Holy Grale. Pours a cloudy brown with medium beige head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong rye, caramel, resin. Medium body, rye, toffee, strong resin bitter finish, very good.

Tap at the Pint Shop, Cambridge, UK. Red brown color with an off-white head. Floral but limited hop aroma. Sour and bitter on the tongue with a malty undertone. Quite nice.

6.3%ABV. Red ale. Poured out red brown. 23°SRM. Nose is sweet and creamy. Caramel peanuts or praline pecans. Pecan pie is the aroma I was looking for. Mouthfeel is carbonated. Palate is mineral, salty and broad carbohdrate not not quite starchy, with dough and fresh baked barley loaves. Toast, deeply browned pie crust. Overall the palate comes across as slightly leathery. Hops are bitter and slightly medicinal. Clean bitter. Finish is medium. Lingering bitter. Goes on Favorites List !

Keg @ Ninth Ward, Farringdon, London. Deep red with a thin off-white creamy head. It’s a Black IPA with a dominant dark malt fruitiness, with some underlying roasted malts evident too. Crisp enough drinking despite its strength.

lello4ever (1243) - ITALY - JUN 16, 2016
Colore ambra scuro rosso. Schiuma ampia e frizzantina di colore biancastro. Aroma floreale e erbaceo. Al palato è una buona ale, amarognola, consistenza leggera, una bella base maltata. Carbonazione media. Eccellente

Unde (1181) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Amber ale with smallish head leaving lots of lacing to the sides of the glass. Aroma has red berries, sweet fruits, caramel malts. Taste is quite sweet at first. There is caramel malts, sweet berries and then dry kick of the hops. Pines and grass hop flavours. Medium body and medium carbonation.
