Towey1989 (2222) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2017
Can at The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a hazy amber colour with a frothy beige head. Aroma of red fruits, pine, caramel, some biscuity malts, slight rye and subtle spicy, earthy hops. Taste of caramel, rye, some biscuity malts, slight red fruit, a little pine, a hint of orange and subtle spicy, earthy hops. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation and an oily texture. A bittersweet, fruity, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. A really well made amber ale, lovely malty flavours balanced really well with fruit, pine and spicy, earthy hops. Good.

Pours a red colour. Taste is quite hoppy and dry on the palate. Quite a decent beer

Very good! Like an ipa but with that gentle touch of sweetness from the darker malt to balance the bitterness. Just how I like it. Will keep an eye on this brewery I did not know before.

Heidbummer (423) - SCOTLAND - DEC 8, 2016
I really like this. Pours a gorgeous deep red/amber with dense yellow head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Big malty, toasty, caramel, red fruit taste, hint of rye. Tastes really well made, and a great English/American hybrid beer with great balance of both sides of the Atlantic. Bloody good.

Passed THT, but still good. Clear ruby with tanned lacing foam head. Nice hoppy aroma, light bitter taste, light sweetness. OK beer. (Velp 201606)
