From Beer Cartel. No BB.

Pours a dark brown body. Off white one finger head. Fades to film.

Aromas are subdued, a little grains, malt.

Taste is also integrated, and really a hoppy, malty, molasses sweet bundle. Earthy breads doughy malts win, I guess, but light flavours overall.

Mouthfeel lightly carbonated.

Solid if unremarkable offering from Red Hill. I could session, but doubt I would.

Pours very dark brown with ruby hints.
Rich malty aroma, with toasty notes, melanoidin malt, bready malt and caramel. A little restrained though.
Similarly rich flavours, with more bready and toasty malt alongside some caramel. Also present is a spicy hop note.
Carbonation seems a little high.

Pours a nice, rich red colour, slightly on the dark-brown side. Beige head consists of large bubbles, sticks around OK. Looks nice.

Lots of nice malty notes on the nose. Nutty edge with a slight dry edge and a hint of roastiness towards the back. Toffee, figs and caramelised nuts. Pleasant.

Nice palate, again pretty malty and sweet with some nice cinnamon and pepper characters. A bit sweet with residual toffee towards the back, but there's enough spice to balance it out well. Good beer.

Bit on the thin side, a bit of carbonation showing through that dries it up a bit too much.

Nice malty beer with good spice and a hint of alcohol to cleanse it all. Not bad at all, and another decent offering from Red Hill.

Had on-tap at the GABS festival in Melbourne.

Pours a deep maroon colour with great clarity. Head is a firm but soft beige colour which leaves wispy lace behind. Minimal carbonation through the soft but fluid body. Looks great.

Grainy bite on the nose, with some slight phenolic, slightly medicinal characters and a hint of berry. It's interesting, if not all that deep or complex.

Soft spice comes forward on the palate, before a bold, crisp cherry wood character comes through, along with a hint of German grain. Finish brings on bitterness and some more of that slightly spicy medicinal character in the aftertaste.

Feel is light. I feel like it could be heavier, but perhaps that would then overwhelm the palate and remove some of the subtler complexities.

Overall, a very decent brew from Red Hill, who have a habit of making very decent brews. Good stuff.
