3.62/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

500ml bottle bought by my dad in Loch Ness and brought back to Australia for me. Shared with @LaitueGonflable and @tobeerornottobe.

Pours, indeed, a truly red hue, with a filmy but relatively fine head of off-white. Speckled, persistent lacing. Body is actually quite thick and holds fine carbonation in its gelatinous thrall. Looks decent enough.

Nose is fruity from the get-go. I'm getting red appleskin, but not in the bad ethyl hexanoate kind of way. Otherwise solid, slightly chewy malt characters and a clean English hop aroma. Later a little white pepper comes in as well. It's quite pleasant.

Quite light and subdued on the palate. Mild mid-coloured English malt characters come through, with a slight sketching of earthy hops providing a counterpoint. Finish is light but persistent, with a smooth finish that doesn't abbreviate itself.Some slight earth and wood-toned hops make an encore appearance just before the end. Pleasant enough.

Feel is relatively smooth, but tending towards being a little thin.

Overall, It's decent stuff, but a little forgettable. There's certainly nothing wrong with it, but neither is there anything that makes me stand up and take notice. A solid English-style bitter that does its job on nothing more.

Poured into english pint.
Clear reddish-copper-brown with scanty beige head, diminishing quickly to some remnants. Smell is distinctively plum, caramel, toffee, licorice and commonly crisp.
Taste of dark fruits, licorice, somewhat bready & biscuity. Slight bitterness in the finish. Rye bread aftertaste.
Firm 4-starred beer.
