3.62/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

330ml bottle bought from The Vineyard, Belfast...

Poured a reddish orange colour. Creamy head poured small but quite thick then faded fairly quickly to wispy coating with thick edging... very sparse carbonation bubbles drift slowly to the surface... some thin lacing...

Aroma - Fairly sweet caramel malts mixed quite a lot of nuttiness, metallic notes, vegetal hints... some prune, fig and orange fruitiness... toasted bread, some wet grass

Taste – Lots of toasted breadiness, caramel / toffee, peppery and grassy hop bitterness, roasted nutty sweetness, light fruits (oranges, apples, figs), again some vegetal notes, faint metallic hints, some dried fruit also...

Feel - Quite smooth and creamy... light / medium bodied...

Overall - A decent enough beer but i was expecting more from this collaboration between Redwillow and Brewfist... worth a try...

A 330ml bottle with a BB of June 2014, so it's well out of date. I discovered it in the back of a cupboard - hope it's still OK. Acquired a while back from Trembling Madness in York. Described as a collaboration between RedWillow and Brewfist; an amber ale hopped with Centennial, Simcoe and Amarillo.

A: Poured into a cervoise. Bottle conditioned. A deep marmalade-amber hue with faint haze and low carbonation. Yields a smallish head of white foam that lasts for a moment or two before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of sweet caramel malt with hints of barley sugar, caramel/toffee, subtle toasted grain, mild citrus, fruity hops, vague earthy yeast and faint stewed hops. Decent but quite sugary.

T: Tastes of caramel malt with a subdued hoppy character and a lingering finish. Notes of barley sugar, caramel, mild toasted grain, earthy yeast, subtle pine resin, faint fruity hops, stewed leaves and a touch of wet cardboard. Quite sweet, followed by a restrained bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with soft carbonation and good body. A bit too flat; could be livelier. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of caramel malt, harsh stewed leaves/cardboard and mild hop aromatics.

O: Hmmm, OK but a bit too old. Shame I managed to lose it. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are dominated by sweet malt and faded hop notes. An unwelcome hint of cardboard in the background. Body is decent but lacking in texture. Probably not as good as it might have been fresh - oh well....
