pintbypint (3481) - Edmonton, Alberta, - SEP 7, 2012
500ml brown bottle. Deep orange body. Head is light tan, dense, tthick and long lasting. Lots of thick lacing. Nose has sweet malts, a bit of fruit and citrus peels. Taste is pretty hoppy, nice citrus notes, some sweetness and caramel malts, some fruitiness. Finishes hoppy with lasting grapefruity and orange peel like hops. Also a lasting malt note that is a bit earthy and nutty. Light body, mild carbonation. Lots of flavour for a lighter alc beer, and gorgeous in the glass. Overall this is a nicely hopped UK red ale that is richer and hoppier than expected.

john44 (2986) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2017
Bottle. Dark red-brown colour. Very malty full-bodied beer (roast, toasted malts, buttery caramel). Fruity. Flowery spicy hops. Rather earthy (peaty?) bitter taste. Hints of smoke? Bitter roast malty finish. Very drinkable. (2008)

Borresteijn (6790) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2017
50cl Bottle, thanks Bob & Rosemary! Clear ruby amber colour, light-beige head. Aroma of crystal malt, toffee, resin, hops, rose petals, red fruits, quite some classic hops. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, caramel, toffee, nuts, floral, light fruity, light resin, decent hoppy bitter finish. Light bodied. Nice.

Karamel, licht wurzig maar waterig in smaak. Best complex maar dun. Licht aroma - beetje hoppiger. Niks speciaal, wel doordrinkbaar. 500ml fles.

hershiser2 (2795) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2016
$5.49 500 ml bottle from Market Street Wine Shop, Downtown. Pours murky brown with an inch plus of creamy beige head. Aroma is strong floral hops, almost perfumey, as well as light citrus, caramel, and apple? Flavor is highly floral, with rose hips, black tea, orange, caramel, raisin, violet?, nuts. Quite nice.

Grzesiek79 (4223) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 21, 2016
Bardzo dobre piwo. Pachnie bardzo chmielnie kwaitami i cytrusami. W smaku goryczkowe, nieco karmelu, ale glownie sporo dawki szlachetnej goryczki. Piwo ladnie wyglada piana spora i trwala, kolor klarowny czerwono herbaciany. Przyjemne i mocno wytrawne zwlaszcza na finiszu. Troche moze zbyt bylo przegazowane.

Perpignan73 (40) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
500ml bottle, chilled, poured into a pint glass at home. Amber colour; small off white head; lovely sweet nose, toffee apple, orange, malts; bitter taste; creamy; some caramel, raisin, orange with a sweetish, dry finish. Lacks a little body, but very tasty and highly drinkable, imo better than a lot of these new American style red/rye ales.
