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, everyones taste buds are different. This is an incredibly flavoursome Red Ale, full of lots of interesting tastes and aromas.

stevoj (4310) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Draft at Euston Tap. Muddy brown pour, small tight head, lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is malt, molasses and some savory notes. Taste brings out the malts a bit more, brown bread, hoppy notes grow to a bitter finish. Smooth, yet sharp.

Moolesen (516) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Red/brown with a tanned foamy head. Funny aroma of sweet malt and some hops in the back. Bitter taste with some sweetness. Strange combination. The bitterness stays quite long.

Bottled. Ambery brown colour with a small beige creamy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is smoked wet wood, some rye bread and mild citrusy and floral notes. Flavour is quite similar, but has a nice crisp maltiness to it.

RichardGretton (4698) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle. Reddish amber coloured beer with a very strong slightly off white head. The aroma is well hopped, and the flavour is well hopped with bags of bitterness and dryness. Overall a nice amber coloured well hopped beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
