look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Golden-ruby hue on the pour with crisp clarity and a very thin head that is maintained by light but constant carbonation, very little lacing worth noting, but it occurs.
Smells of medium roast pale and chocolate malts that is rich and teasing. Caramel, toffee, chocolate and cooked dried fruits (prune, raisin? mostly on the sweeter notes). Notably sweet.
Dark fruits and a light copper not round out roasted cocoa nibs. Butter toffee and light tobacco/leather notes. Finishes a little dry and an iron minerality that I thought would have given the hops a little more bite. The low ABV allows some of the more subtle flavours to show, although I burnt y tongue on coffee this morning it can only help ME so much, and it does.
Mouth-feel is medium bodied and well suited to this style. Willing carbonation makes it lively on the palate and probably adds to the dry finish.
Well balanced and fairly complex. Better than the majority of reds I’ve had in the last little while. Light and slightly spicy hopsg with juicy, roasty-toasty sweet malts and long finish makes this a joy. An approachable beer for most, but not complex enough for the seasoned, the flavour and mild complexity make a great and affordable everyday beer.
