2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark red amber pour. Looks great, and I like the hops used, itís just not a big enough beer in the flavor or nose to stand up well to being on nitro. Everything muted, earthy and fruity. OK.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - Pours a deep ruby, bit of creamy. Thin fermented breads, hints of toffee, hints of watered caramel, bitter hops finish. Not impressed.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pre-pour notes. Okay so, I had two bottles of this out in the truck. Went out to get something from the truck. Very cold out, well below freezing. The bottles exploded. Top neck, bottom base. Gone. Kablooey! However, theyíre still frozen. Mostly intact. Iím guessing the nitro doesnít like to be froze. So, Iím gradually thawing it out. Then I am going to sift, filter and strain out any glass, and give it a try.
Aroma is very sweet and malty. Fruity, like a soda.
Canít quite get appearance down. Light copper to amber. Loss of nitro is bad, would probably help.
Taste is malty, sweet. Orange marmalade is an accurate descriptor. Has sort of a pecan shell bitterness.
Mouthfeel is thin. A little papery. Light bodied. A better bottle would give more body.
Overall, despite its condition. Iím still enjoying it, and itís still pretty good. Iíll try another bottle if I see it, and redo this. Iím intrigued enough to buy it again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
With a vigorous pour, Squatters Nitro Red Ale achieves a creamy, ivory head and a clear, brick-red appearance, some big suspended sediment chunks, and a bit of spiderweb lacing left on the glass. Aroma is of fruity (orange marmalade?), tannic, malt notes. Taste is of malt, fruit, mild hop bitterness, tea leaves, and sweet bread crust. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Nitro Red Ale finishes medium dry and highly drinkable. RJT

So this looks nice. The nitro gives it a super creamy mouthfeel. The problem is the flavor just isnít that good.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Smiths
Pours clear dark amber/copper with a medium sized creamy beige head, good lacing. Aroma is fruity, bisquity and grassy. Taste is watery, grassy and fruity
It starts off good, appearance and aroma but the nitro makes it flat and bland.
