On tap at the brewery. Off white head. Amber copper color. Lace.

Malty and a touch of sweetness with resiny hops. Grapefruit and pine. Hoppy red ale. Ends sticky with some weedy notes.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2018. ABV is stated as 4.1%. Picked up recently from Waitrose. The label mentions that this is brewed with 5 hop varieties from the Yakima valley.

A: Poured into a tulip. A clear marmalade hue with good carbonation. Yields a decent head of creamy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before reducing to a patchy surface layer.

S: Aroma of resinous hops with hints of pine, weed, vague citrus peel, caramel malt, a touch of grain and ale yeast. Pretty good.

T: Tastes of pine-heavy hops with notes of pine resin, weed, mild citrus peel, caramel malt, barley sugar, light grain and ale yeast. Slightly sweet and a tad watery. A restrained hoppy bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with spritzy carbonation and a somewhat insubstantial body. Aftertaste of bitter resinous hops, caramel malt and yeast.

O: A drinkable brew - hoppy yet balanced. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour successfully blend pine, caramel and yeast. Body is OK; slightly too thin. Goes down alright and would certainly work as a regular drinking beer. Worth sampling.

Pours a very dark (Ribena) red. The thin head recedes quickly to a ring. Looks like a fruit beer.

Smell is roasted malt and ripe strawberry.

Tastes of red berries and twizzlers. Mildly bitter. Some resin

Thin body with moderate carbonation and a dry finish.

Not sure what to make of this. More fruity and less hoppy than I was led to believe by the blurb on the bottle. That said, an American Amber Ale is supposed to be malt-forward so...?

Pours a copper colour, with two fingers head that vanishes soon. Aroma of caramel, muscatel, hints of dark fruits, resine and some citrus. Light body, a bit watery, not much carbonation. Taste is sour, sith some toffee, muscatel, resine and citrus. Not really the best of Meantime.
