look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

330ml bottle. Best before Sept 2013.

A: Pours a hazy copper colour (red?). Finger of foam that fades to a small raft of foam.
S: Lots of spiciness, rye & cinnamon. Toast and bready malt. Toffee sweetness.
T: Lots of bready, toffee with a touch of rye & cinnamon. A small amount of bitterness but balance towards the malty side.
M: Smooth rich mouthfeel but not heavy.
O: Nice, interesting spicy character with supporting rich malt characters. I guess that a lot of the hop character has dropped out, as the bottle states 'triple hopped'.

3.46/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear copper with a three-fingered head that leaves a few dots of lacing

Smell: Spicy rye bread, caramel and earthy/piney hops; rather herbal

Taste: Fruity, with apple and strawberry tones, up front; caramel and earthy/piney flavors develop, in the middle; harsh, spicy and metallic, after the swallow, with an unbalanced finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A rather unusual beer with a range of surprising flavors - too bad it doesn't work better

Thanks, kemoarps, for the opportunity

4.13/5  rDev +16.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle: standard brown 355mL bottle, pretty cool old-school label. I like it.

Appearance: clear bronze colouring, with a one-finger off-white head. Good retention, and a decent amount of lacing.

Aroma: some sweet caramel malts back a pepper-and-hop overtone. Pine and grapefruit with some citrus. Nice, but a touch weak.

Taste: the taste is similar, but somehow better defined and more full in body. The hops definitely come through stronger - a nice slow sipper.

Aftertaste: definitely a slow sipping beer - the hop bitterness picks up, offering a fantastic red ale bite. One of the best.

Mouth feel: medium in body with a lasting bitterness. Hangs around in the mouth for quite a while, which is nice.

Overall: without a doubt the best American Red Ale I have had to date. A good sipping ale - something worth while onece every now and then. The price is a bit restrictive at AU$100 a case (2013), but a 6-pack every now and then won't hurt too badly.
