Tasted Wednesday 18 November 2009. 330ml bottle, 5.9% Alc/Vol
The fine folk at Red Hill Brewery are not shy in packing flavour and character into their beers.
This is an unfiltered beer that is quite golden in colour. Big spicy, piney hop aromas with subtle banana, malt and yeasty characters greet the nose.
Fat Czech style maltiness (without being overly heavy) and a rich, slightly viscous texture (probably the 5.9% alc) roll lazily around the mouth. The hops extract themselves providing a dry, cleansing, long and fresh, bitter finish. Not really a “session” beer, rather it is something you can have two or three of, but requires your full attention.
