50 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark amber with an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are caramel, rye, and citrus - with a slightly bitter finish.

aussiealchemist (52) - Berwick Victoria, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2017
Bottle from Cromarty brewery. Pours hazy reddish amber with a small cream head. Aroma is dank hops and some malt and odd yeast esters. Flavour is strangely resinous, spicy with some toffee. Taste is quite bitter and astringent. Not enough sweetness to balance the hops. Mouthfeel is quite thin and watery. Overall not all that enjoyable, sort of weird.

Towey1989 (2814) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2017
Keg at Beerdock, Nantwich. A hazy deep amber colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of rye, spice, some caramel, slight resin, a hint of chocolate and subtle grassy hops. Taste of rye, caramel, some spice, slight resin, a little red fruit and subtle grassy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, spicy rye bitterness in the finish. A red ale focusing on the spicy rye which I like. Would prefer a little bit more hop bite but still good.

Gravity Cask Third of a Pint at GBBF 2015, Olympia, London Aug 2015 - Red Brown in colour. Large foamy off-white head. Fair lacing. Malty; grainy rye malts, heavily malted, caramel. Spicy. Fruity; citrus orange, grapefruit notes. Hoppy; some piney hops. Bitter grainy malty spicy fruity and dry throughout. Liked the rye malts. Nice Beer! (2015-08-12)

berkshirejohn (6491) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2016
Cask at the Bell, Waltham St Lawrence. A rather dull chestnut colour at first glance with a loose cream head, but when the sunlight hits the glass (as it did in the beer garden this evening) a bright reddish copper gleam appears; the aroma is full of red fruit with a hint of rye; the taste is fruity with a caramel sweetness at first, then becoming drier with a gentle bitterness and some woody resin towards the finish. A perfect pint for a beautiful spring evening.

2.9
larsga (7539) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 1, 2016
Medium beige head. Clear brown body. Floral citric fruity aroma with dusty corn notes. Sweetish fruity lemsip taste with candy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish resiny floral aftertaste with spicy wooden citric notes. It’s not bad, but the overly artificial fruity flavours don’t work for me. (0.5l bottle, from odd bins, Edinburgh.)

3.4
StuartC (74) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Deep amber-brown, no bubbles but thick browny-white head. Very malt-dominant aromas, earthy, cut grass, espresso. Medium body, not bubbly yet fairly spritzy, good intensity, medium acidity, dry, peppery tingle lasts a good long time. Dark flavours on the palate: smoky, dates, black pepper with cinnamon swirls; There’s a hint of sweeter spice and woody elements, rye bread kicks in mid-palate; Bittering hops come in right at the finish with a purge of wet grass and over-ripe grapefruit. Was expecting something quite a bit fruitier; needs either more hops to tone down the smoke, or more sweetness to round it out.

Iznogud (3796) - CROATIA - FEB 27, 2016
Cask at the Kinlochewe hotel, Kinlochewe. Pours dark copper, off white head. Lots of hops in aroma, fruity, hint of pine, caramel malty. Medium bodied. Dry bitter finish.

3.5
stouby (4666) - Holbæk, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2016
Draught at YNWA. Clear dark amber. Aroma medium malty (caramel, bread, spicy) and hoppy (citrusy, piney). Flavor medium sweet and bitter, light spicy. Medium body.
