At 5.2%abv., coming in a 355ml bottle; BB 09/14, served cool in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: pours a dark copper colour with very good clarity, coming with a thick off-white frothy head settling slowly to a thin cap to last, on top of steady streams of mild carbonation.
S: burned caramel malts dominate the nose, with hints of roast barley, bitter chocolates, crushed roast tea leaves, and gristy biscuits; behind the maltiness, a swirl would bring up the aroma of restrained hop aroma as in dried citric hops and peachy-flowery notes, while esters remain at the lowest-possible level, apart from a light tinge of plums or other types of dark stone fruits. More well-balanced with a good depth than being complex.
T: lightly effervescent, the bitter-sweet maltiness is thick-bodied initially, not sweet at all but full of deeply-toasted malt or roast barley’s aromatic, dry-ish feel on the palate, as well as an almost toffee-ish, melted dark sugary and dried nutty aroma as in caramel/crystal malts in support underneath; the swallow also shows a subtle feed of aromatic hops, but not in such an abundance as Rogue’s other more hoppy beers, and it fast proceeds to an aftertaste which is dry-ish, herbal&nutty bitter with a chewy mouthfeel and subtle acidity in the end.
M&O: the mouthfeel is generally soothing and refreshing, given the fine but constant flows of carbonation, while the body stays moderate, fairly balanced in flavour profile overall. The flavour balance points to quite a few British Best Bitter type of beers I’ve tried in the UK, as a result I actually find this much less hoppy copper-coloured ale rather “familiar” or approachable.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Cloudy red-brown with two-finger, off-white, creamy head that lasted a couple minutes and left a nice film. Nice lacing.

S: Caramel malt and slightly earthy hops.

T: Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Caramel malt and hops.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Smooth and refreshing.

O: Pretty good red ale. It looks really nice in the glass and is otherwise a solid beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

An off white foamy three finger head is presented off the pour. Some retention but seems to fall at a good clip. Body color is a hazy dark dull amber brown. Some faint lacing while drinking

Nose is some chewy malt, faint brown bread. Fairly straightforward.

Palate is somewhere between light and mildly rich. Nice malt balance, with a simple body. Some mild tight carbonation. But nothing exceptional.

Overall not much to really say here, just ok.

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler pint, the beer is a hazy, almost opaque copper coloring with no head whatsoever. Aromas are smokey and caramel sweetness all through the nose, and very light and well balanced. Flavors are light initially, with a strong sweet caramel malt backbone and a hopping that is spicy and peppery, with a roasted character. The hops start off light, but gain a ton of momentum, and are a strong blast by the end of the palate. Tasty beer. The aftertaste is roasty and hoppy, with a nice, slight linger. The finish has a nice, dry, palate cleansing effect to it. Good brew.

12oz. bottle: This one pours a somewhat hazy amber color. There was a bit of an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Caramel and toffee notes to the nose. Slight pine and breadiness. Good taste. Bitter with just a faint caramel sweetness behind it. Some roastiness, caramel and pine. Hint of Belgian breadiness. Not bad. I would definitely have again.

This is 5.1% and it pours a cloudy copper hue which leaves a two finger bubbly head that slowly dies down to a one layer of froth with sporadic clingy lacing,the smell is boiled candy,piney hops and caramel,the mouthfeel is light bodied and has tastes of sticky toffee,boiled candy,marzipan,grapefruit and finished with a hit of piney hop bitterness and overall its very drinkable but not memorable cheers.
