4.05/5 rDev 0%
Five hundred milliliter bottle shared by Andrew - thanks. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a clear dark red almost amber under a quarter-inch thick off-white head which fades to the rim and leaves spotty lace.
N: Citrusy (orange, tangerine) hops, rosewater, malts.
T: Grainy malts well balanced with citrusy hops along with dates or raisins.
M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes semi-dry and mildly sweet grains and citrusy.
O: Interesting style, another change-up, and enjoyed.

3.75/5 rDev -7.4%
Appearance: pours with three fingers of light reddish head. Color is ruby red with plenty of active carbonation, on par for the style. Sticky lacing left behind at each level.
Smell: Bitter resinous pine jumps out on the front. Lots of caramelized malts with some bitter amber malt as well. Plentiful amounts of semi-sweet toffee on the body with linger hops.
Taste: Dark bitter pine with toffee and heavier malts greet the drinker. Hops, figs, dried fruits, and some sweeter malt notes open up on the body. Finish is some fading toffee and caramel with lingering hop notes.
Mouthfeel: Potent hoppy front with a creamy malt texture riding into the body. Carbonation could be a touch brighter.
Overall: Really enjoyed this red ale, would certainly try it again if I could get a fresher bottle. I often overlook this style, but this brew makes me want to explore a bit more.
