3.58/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Clear red colour with a smooth and creamy off-white head.

Sweet caramel malt. Some fruitiness. Lacking a little hop punch given the high sweetness.

Sugary and bitter. Quite hoppy but the hop fruitiness is masked by the sugar.

Medium body with moderate carbonation.

A nice beer but it is too sweet for my tastes. How difficult is it to attenuate a beer properly?

Pours dark amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows caramel, bready malt, resinous hops, passion-fruit and grapefruit.
Very hoppy flavours, lots of resinous pine and grapefruit along with some sweet bready malt following later. Initially the hops seem to dominate but soon enough it becomes clear that the malt is the driving force in this beer.
Body feels a bit syrupy.

Pours a deep red colour, clear with foamy beige head. Sticks around nicely. Good-looking red ale.

Lovely nose, with loads of hops, US and NZ in equal measure. Tangy, citric, pine and floral notes, loads of fruit and bags of tangy aroma. Touch of toasty malt underneath. Yeah, lovely.

Lots more tang on the palate, floral and fruity hops with passionfruit, citrus and rose. Nice sweet malty backbone as well, finishes tangy and hoppy with a hint of spice. Very pleasant.

Full body, a little bitty. Pretty nice.

Really nice red ale. Good malt, good hops, and well balanced.

On-tap at the GABS festival in Melbourne.

Pours a genuinely red hue, with a dash of brown to it, with a very mild haze. Fluid body, lighter than you expect for the ABV. Head is a full, firm yellow-white colour that leaves solid lacing. Love the colour. It's a great looking beer overall.

Nose is delicious and full, and presses its case from the first whiff. Sweaty aromatics, pressed oily hops with massive citrus characters. This adds a wonderful crispness to the round malt which sits forming a basis. Delicious, rich, full and spot-on stylistically. Awesome stuff.

Light grain on the front of the palate, with a hint of hops giving a peppery bite, before this blooms into a big fruity uplift of passionfruit and lemon rind. Grain sits underneath it all, and ends up parking on the back palate along with a cleaning crisp hop finish. Feel is smooth but crisp. Lovely stuff.

Great stuff from Bright. They nailed the style, and put together an amazingly tasty and drinkable beer. One of my top brews from the festival.
