Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Lightly hazym amber, minimal head. Distinct grapefruit aroma. Dry with clean, crisp mouthfeel. Bread and crystal malt rolled in layers of grapefruity hops. Short mid bitter finish. Simple concept, not much depth, but still tremendously well made, relaxed and likable. robforbes (2237) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2012

Bottle. A light and crisp American Pale Ale that hits the spot on a hot evening. Good flavor and a sharp finish. Tasty. PorterPounder (7892) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Portland, Or - Johnís Market Place. Has a dark orange pour with an off-white head, light lacing. Patented crystal malt aroma with some fruity hints of nectarines. Flavor leans to the sweet side with some passion fruit sweetness, a nice dollop of caramel, toffee and a bit of nuttiness in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice thickness to it.

Overall disappointing. This "red" is actually a medium amber heavily hopped ale. I was expecting a smooth mildly sweet Red when I first opened the bottle but was not thrilled with what I received. The
It had a frothy foam head but again the hops were overpowering the flavor of the grains. jonas (7549) - Garching b. MŁnchen, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle. Reddish amber, golden cream. Mango and pine hop aroma. Medium body, light chewyness, dry metallic mouthfeel, resiny stickyness. Light caramel roast, I would like a tad more maltiness to balance the agressive tropical and pine resin hops. txspartan (1065) - Berchem, BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2012
Grapefruit and caramel hop aromas. Watery texture. Some caramel bubbles. Not bad. saxo (18208) - HÝjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2012
