355ml bottle. Orange pour. Aroma is papery and thin, slightly tart. Flavor is oxidized nad sweet, not great.
Post tasting thoughts:
Surprised to see this listed as a "bitter". I guess this brewery is stuck in 1985. It is a remarkably bad brew.
(Draught) Pours a clear amber body with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, earth, fruit, and bread. Flavor of grass, caramel, earth, and grain with a somewhat dry finish. HomebrewTownsend (7) - Frederick, Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2014 does not count
Nice color, a little cloudy, with a slight yeasty aftertaste. Overall, it’s drinkable. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2013
10/10/2010. Sampled at the brewery. Copper color with a white head. Caramel aromas with light roasted malt and hops. Light caramel flavors with hops on the finish, but all very muted. ajnepple (7342) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2013
12 oz bottle as The Stanley Hotel Redrum Ale. Reddish-copper and clear appearance with a white head. Pretty bland aroma and flavor, a balance of bitter hops and caramel malts. Light thin body with a soft, dry feel and a bittersweet finish. Not their best offering.

Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF Tessic (1249) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2012
This ale poured a clear, dark red colour with a soapy head. Not very appealing to look at. Scents include pineapple, citrus hopps, slight ripe fruit and hard apple cider. First sip was watery. Very thin mouthfeel. flavours of ripe fruit, hopps and cider. Finish is hoppy with a slight bitterness on the tongue. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 28, 2011
