LesArgen (386) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2013
Lots of floral fragrances give way quickly to marshmallow and honey, then finally some earthy notes including dirt, metal and sump oil. In the mouth it’s more hoppy with good length and a reasonable malt structure. It could probably do with a little more bite, but it’s an enjoyable drop.

Beersiveknown (5309) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JAN 26, 2013
Keg at shed 22 Brewbar, Wellington 7/1/13
Clear amber-brown with slight spicy apple aroma. Medium bodied, sweet caramel, some cardboard and astringent flavours and rasping bitter finish but little in the way of hop flavour. Another red ale I don’t like...
