Pours a reddish copper color with a medium off white head with good lacing. Smells of grapefruit, pine, caramel, dark fruit and toffee. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a good hop presence for a red ale I’m assuming from the dry hopping. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, and chewy with a dry finish. Overall this was a great beer that is full of flavor. Seems more like a red ipa instead of an amber ale though.
Draft Third of a Pint at GBBF 2010 (Day 4), Earl’s Court, London Aug 2010 - Hazy but OK. Reddish-copper in colour. Very Hoppy; Resinous piney and earthy hops. Malty; grainy malts, roasty, caramel. Fruity; citrus grapefruit. Piney hops dominate over sweet grainy malts. Dry bitter hoppy finish. Very drinkable. Decent. (2010-08)

Bought in a 22 oz. bomber. Perhaps I obtained an old bottle or it may be that I simply cannot connect with this one. I do not know. It pours a nice dark amber with a fantastic egg shell foam that lasts a good long while. Drops down from there.Scent is malty with a bit of woodiness. The beer tastes of biscuit and a light hop tone that leaves quickly. I detect a dryness with a slight bitterness at the end. Hard to try this one again. hauxe (712) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2015
Took rating from old notes. Refreshing, medium bodied beer with a lasting frothy head. Nice hops balance. Further notes pending re-rating. Viper666 (3286) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2015

Bottle - fair size foamy head, nice dark Amber color, big caramel bready malt aroma and flavor, a little on the sweet side, not as hoppy as expected, still pretty good though

aromas of herbal, piney and some citrusy hops, some oakey sweetness and dark caramel. - Dark caramel-vanilla-oak deepness beautifully balanced with citrusy, herbal overtones with a tiny tart hint of plumwine and a moderate bitterness. bubblehouse (1492) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 1, 2015
