Deep red colour with lasting fluffy head. Aroma has some hidden earthiness behind the crystal malts. Slightly muddy and skunky though. Beese (3306) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2017

Bottle from M&S. Mahogony with a tan head. Aroma of toasted malt and biscuit. Flavour of bitter hop and malt, metallic background, sour bitter finish. martpez (377) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2017
Very dry hops red ale. Quite simple with malts and a sharp bitterness. Ok. Bit fizzy too. Chemical touch and unbalanced too Theydon_Bois (21516) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2017
Bottle at home, 22/04/17.
Rich reddish amber with a well appointed light beige head that retains well ….a handsome looking beer !
Nose is blood orange, melon, toasted malts, biscuit, light caramel, fruit esters.
Taste comprises bitter orange, citric peel, toasted bread, light spice, trace of minerality, biscuit malt.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with semi astringent bitterness.
Looks and feels good but lacks at the business end. Nothing wrong with this brew but comes across as a ‘gateway’ kind of beer, however it is a touch bitter and harsh in this respect.

Bottle shared by Beersiveknown @ tasting at his place. Huge thanks Steve! Very nice clear dark red color, average sized off-white to beige head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, old hops, faded hoppiness slightly turned into butter. Flavor has it as well, though a bit less obvious. Could have been decent when fresh.
