COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottle; Regular.

A full bodied, aromatic Red Rye ale brewed with malted barley, the addition of 20% Rye to the recipe, and with Chinook, Columbus and Simcoe hops. We think the Rye in the recipe gives some dryness and spice, and the hops add a dash of pine and passion fruit, but see what you think, everyone’s taste buds are different. This is an incredibly flavoursome Red Ale, full of lots of interesting tastes and aromas.

ATulloch (303) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle from deeside drinks emporium. Pours a reddish brown with a small white head that doesn’t stay around long. A strange mix of aromas. Varnished wood, blackcurrant wine gum and strawberry jam with something spicy in there. Taste is similar but with a strong pine finish that leaves a spice on taste buds.

A red as I like it. Solid IPA base from the hops with sweetness from the rye and biscuit/caramel from the malt. Fresh, spicy and very tasty.

imdownthepub (14469) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’14. Reddish amber with white head. Mid malted beer, fruity sweetness with a hint of graininess then a nicely hopped follow through, fruit cocktail in character. Pretty reasonable in my book.
