(bottle 0.33) Pleasant aroma, citrus with malty hints. Dark orange almost clear. Beige head, leaves nice lacing. Light sweet with nice bitter aftertaste, maybe little astringent. Light bodied, bit oily, soft carbonation. Nice beer, well balanced, pleasant surprise after trying Maelstrom. Lowenbrau (4150) - Asturias, SPAIN - DEC 30, 2014

In short: malty amber ale.
Pours quite hazy amber with nice white head. Moderate head retention, good lacing. Caramel, malty, fruity, herbal aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, some crispy texture. Taste is malty sweet, some fruity, herbal. Moderate bitterness, smooth, maybe a bit bland.
Tap at Euston Tap. Bright amber pour. Really spicy/peppery hop aroma over a moderately sweet malt base. A bit of fruit and perhaps a touch of tartness starting in this one. It doesn’t really detract but it’s there. Zippy and juicy. A bit of a vineous note on the back. Lovely. gad905 (202) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2015 Draft at BD ShepBush. As ?Rouge?, 5.8%. Pours clear copper red with decent-sized cream head that hangs around a bit before fading to a skin. Nose of juicy tropical fruits, pineapple, grapefruit, sweet orange, plus some toasty malt, brown bread. Tastes medium sweet, brown bread crusts, toasted cereal, some cinder toffee, medium bitter, some juicy citrus and some floral. Nice balance. Medium-light body, oily, moderate carb, long hoppy finish, still with some juice and some floral. Gotta say, on this showing I have a lot of time for this beer - so many Ambers are overhopped or underhopped, or get the balance of toasty caramel right, but this one has good balance.

Rödorange öl med smutsvitt skum som lämnar fina gardiner. Doft av malt, citrusfrukter och lätt jordiga toner. Samma återkommer i smaken tillsammans med lite tallbarr och kåda. Mycket bra för en öltyp som inte är min favorit. mzaar (3389) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2014

Bottle. Strawberry tea dominated by resin and geranium, some eau de Cologne as well. Quaffable, body not too full, medium bitterness, medium intense flavour. Very quaffable. Oh, did I already write that? Nevermind. Very quaffable indeed. ATulloch (303) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - OCT 11, 2014
