A full bodied ruby red ale with subtle chocolate malt character. Inital maltiness leads to citrus, spice and bitterness at the end. A rare Slovenian variety of hop provides both bitter finish and the aroma.

dogbomb (1257) - ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2012
Cask. Red rusty ale with a thick offwhite head. Malty, straw and lemongrass nose. Rich full-bodied mouthfeel with bags of malt, some light chocolates, cereals and lemon. Really nice and robust.

jmgreenuk (10325) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 22, 2012
Cask at the Red Lion in the Jewelery Quarter, Birmingham. Reddish brown clear pour with a thin white frothy head. A hint of spicy hops in the aroma which pretty much dominates the flavour too. I'm not a fan of red ales, but this example was more than drinkable by virtue of its spicy liqourice palate.

Theydon_Bois (21425) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2012
Gravity dispense at the twelfth Twickenham Beer Festival - 18/10/12. Clear russett brown with a thin bubbly off white head. Biscuit malts on the nose and a hoppy aroma. Tastes of caramel, biscuit, light grapefruit notes, hops. Medium bodied with a bitter dry finish.

Rune (13720) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2012
Half pint, cask ale at The Hop in Leeds. Good looking with a body that is golden-brown,covered by a decent fawn-coloured head blanketing the top level of the glass. Smell of berries and bread-like malts. Jam-like flavour from a fine blend of dark fruits and dark malts. Dusty hoppy ending. Good (12.07.2012).

dynamiteninja (1930) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Cask. The Postern Gate (JDW), York. Thin white head. Copper-auburn reddish tinged body. Spice, nuts, fruit, chocolate. Sort of bittersweet to taste leaving a bitter finish. The sweetness is too sickly and artificial tasting. The bitterness is too harsh. Not a big fan of red beers.

Miksu (5052) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Cask at Ye Olde Mitre, London. Red amber color. Aromas and flavors of dark caramel, wine gums and nuts. Lots of dark caramel, which is not my cup of beer.

worldbeertaste (1819) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2011
Light brown with thin white head. Toffee aroma. Light watery thin body. Toffee, coffee, and a sweet caramel ash finish. Blackberry. Light bitter start with a sweet end. Yummy sweet

leaparsons (10859) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2011
Cask, The Pub, Leicester. Tawny red with an off-white foam. Aromas are earthy berries with light toffee and bready yeast. Flavours are sweet biscuit with dry, earthy hops and mild blackberry. Yeasty with Trace chocolate milkshake. Pretty decent.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 9, 2011
[email protected] Olde Mitre, London. Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is wood, raisins, some wood, spruce and mild earthyness. Flavour is roasted malts, some grassy notes as well as mild caramel and some maltyness.

sm89walt (2082) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2011
Cask (gravity) - The Murderers, Norwich. Fine & mostly disappearing off-white head leaving some lacing atop an unclear deep red body. An uneventful, muddled & fruit-forward bitter with a low bitterness. A hint of toasty dryness in there on the palate. A bit flabby all round. Stale fruit lingers in the aftertaste.
