Good stuff for a red ale coming from a man who doesnt usually like red ales. A tasty drink

DeliriumT (534) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2017
A very interesting beer. Not as approachable as the nail red ale but the malt backbone definitely seems to have more to it. Nice caramel and burnt toffee flavours complemented with a heavy dose of earthy hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy red brown with thin lacy head. Stone fruit aroma, and lots of sweet hops. Big burnt rye taste, still lots of sweet fruit though. Clawing bitterness.

GoufCustom (1914) - HONG KONG - FEB 24, 2017

330ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Looks: Translucent amber ruby colour with a thin trace of yeast sediments; Less than one-quarter finger head with residual soapy off-white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with barely notable slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant rich Amber malt, with strong toastyness, strong Sherry, mustiness, alcohol, grapefruit, strong red fruits, caramel, floral, molasses, dry bread, strong lemon and light grass.

Taste: Mid to light sweet full Amber malt, with grapefruit zest, strong red fruits, light caramel, floral, light molasses, strong herbs, spices, earth, dry biscuits, yeast, strong lemon and very strong bitter grassy hops.

Body: Mid to light body; Quite slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Strong Amber maltyness in a slightly thinned background. Very toast malty with long dryness and red fruits. Hoppy grapefruit zest sharp herbal grass backs things up. Booze is not that strong but omnipresent like shadow of strong Belgian Ambre. Floral with moderate sweetness, dry cream crackers with strong lemon to round. Very nice!

Hoppiness: Grapefruit, floral, strong lemon and light grass in nose. Strong herbs, grapefruit zest, floral, spices, earth, strong lemon and very strong grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, high astringent bitter-sweet toast malty finish.

After taste: Very dry. Herbal citrus and strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is what you get when an Amber Ale get pumped up and nasty - very strong toasted red fruit maltyness, big citrusy hops with sharp grassy bitterness, and with an surprising musty Sherry nose and detoxed Ambre taste. Lean, dry and mean, and its good! A yes for me!

Dark, amber colour poured from a bottle into a glass. Strong piney nose with a hint of caramel. Citrusy/piney hop flavour with strong caramel malt. Quite a dry, refreshing aftertaste with lingering bitterness.

colui72 (897) - HONG KONG - DEC 31, 2016
Dark amber/brown, with a bubbly cream head. Nice sticky lacing. Aroma is pine hops, citrus and caramel malts. Taste has a strong malty backbone, with biscuit and toffee, but a good balance of strong hoppy flavours (citrus, pine, resin). Incredibly smooth and enjoyable, with a lingering bitter finish. Very good.

M_Sack (667) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle. Deep, amber red with a frothy cream head. Pine, citrus and spice hops dominant, but there is a very strong malt backbone. Bitter pine, resin, grapefruit pith, with deep sweet caramel/malt which adds structure, depth and balance. Brilliant beer.

lello4ever (916) - ITALY - JUL 10, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2016 Colore ambra molto scuro, bello, con schiuma compatta e pannosa di colore giallognolo. Al naso un bel aroma erbaceo e luppolato con una interessante speziatura . Anche al palato la base dolce subito contrastata da un deciso amaro, con erbe, luppolo e lievito. La nota che pi prevale quella di erbacea di pino. Carbonazione media come il. Corpo. Una amber direi quasi intelligente e che scorre molto bene, per i miei gusti un pelo troppo amara.
