Amber to light brown colour on the body, with a big light beige head on top, a bit thin, with low retention.
Nice hoppy aroma, with citrus, light orange, biscuit, caramel.
Taste also of caramel, a bit malty as expected but with nice notes of citrus, orange, biscuits, grass.
Medium body, soft carbonation.
Very good. biirusaikou (2705) - - JAN 4, 2016
Draught at Babel Bayside Kitchen. Quite caramel and malt forward with subdued piney hops, bitter finish. Fairly average stuff, likely oxidized I guess. Turtles (2656) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2016

Bottle from Fyne Ales’ brewery tap. Clear amber body with a medium beige head. Lively carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of coffee, caramel, orange and stewed apple. Flavour of toffee, coffee and red fruits. Medium body with an oily texture. Light fizz. I really enjoyed this. It reminded me of Coronado’s Mermaid’s Red Ale, but with added bitterness and drinkability. ciocanelu (2532) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 8, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Dark amber color, almost brown, with beige head. Aroma is mostly caramel and malts but there is some earthy hop character too. More hops on the taste, mostly earthy and piney. Some caramel sweetness too but on the finish and aftertaste it gets quite bitter. Body is soft but has an abrasive carbonation. Overall it’s a well made, classic style amber ale. allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 4, 2015

Bottle thanks to Amanda.
Appearance - almost cherry Red. Nice fluffy head.
Nose - pine aroma, resin, hint of grapefruit. There’s a cake mixture thing going on too.
Taste - hazelnuts, muesli, light orange.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a fairly balanced finish.
Overall - lovely nose, then initially quite sweet on the taste. Then it grows again. angelkostvo (1233) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 23, 2015
