500ml bottle. Not quite sure why some Beer Here offerings in Alberta have all English labels, and others, nothing but Danish - I'm looking at you, Malus Pater. Anyways, a hopped up, strong red ale, this one in front of me apparently is, with lots of vampire references in image and marketing babble alike.

This beer pours a rather murky dark copper amber hue, with a typical tower of De Proef puffy foam, full of bubbles and ennui alike, rendering two fingers of weakly foamy beige head, which leaves a broad array of pleasantly webbed lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of grainy, biscuity caramel malt, sharp orange and grapefruit rind, a touch of lemon zest, more than a hint of metallic stoniness, and further floral, perfumed hops. The taste is a grapefruit, lemon, lime, and orange fruit salad of orchard juiciness, before the bready caramel and toffee maltiness surely shores things up, while a suggestion of floral honey, pine needle, and spicy ditch-borne weediness ably rounds things out.

The bubbles are a bit tight and aggressive, but to no real end, the body a basic medium weight, and mostly smooth, those hops looking for any chance of ingress they might get. It finishes on the far side of off-dry, the caramel malt holding tight, while the heady citrus, pine, and floral alcohol notes make their case.

A pleasantly heady red/amber ale, the booze, hops, and malt all suitably well 'upped', and more or less integrated as such. Bitter, sweet, floral, and warm, all in a balanced sort of way, one which makes one go back for more and more, until there just ain't any more going back, amirite?
