Keg at Queens Arms, Piccadilly. It pours cloudy deep red with medium beige head. The nose is fresh pine, resin, blood orange and earth. The taste is bitter-sweet, pine, resinous, red berry, grapefruit, orange, light jaminess, caramel, toasty, earth, touch of alcohol and a somewhat vinous quality with a bitter finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A rather tasty hoppy red ale. Good depth and drinkability. Nice work Moncada!

Bottle from Oddbins London Bridge drunk at home. Ruby coloured beer thick beige head. Lovely American hoppy aroma. I do Like American reds. Maybe a little too earthy. Touch of sourness on the aroma which is odd. But that might be the hops. Rest of beer is good though and right up my alley. As it were. fonefan (52351) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2013
