3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna. Dark copper, clear body, with a big, rocky, beige, really stable head, that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma of nuts, chocolate, roast, hay, dark berries. Taste is a bit watery, with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is light, with almost no carbonation and it finishes light, roasty and bitter. It starts very promising, but unfortunately it gets worse with every step: beautiful appearance, decent aroma, watery taste and finally a really light mouthfeel. Much too thin for my liking, even when considering the low ABV.

0.5l. Pours nice head and nice smell, really promising. Now comes the problem. It tastes like... well, when you drink it you feel no taste, and aftertaste is not really good, just a little smoke and caramel. I am slightly dissapointed.

Oikein hieno pullo, aivan mielettömän kaunis punainen väri. Miellyttävä tylppä maku, joka kaipaisi hiukan loppupotkua ja paksuutta. Hyvä valinta!

One of my favourite reds, a gorgeous colour when poured and a good level of hoppyness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
An overpriced 50 cl bottle from some generic Irish pub in Venice, Italy, in June 2014. Pours a beautiful mahogany red with a huge frothy head that just stays forever. Aroma is malty of caramel, rather sweet. Malty, roasty taste with a decent hoppy kick in the finish. Also slight hay and grapefruit. Flat carbonation; light body. Overall a really simple yet lovable brew. Too bad we don’t have this in Estonia.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Dark orange/light amber, perfectly clear, with a big, fluffy and persistent light beige head. On the nose caramel and toffee, roasted malts, light berries, freshly roasted coffee beans. Quite nutty taste wise, lots of almonds/nuts/peanuts and the likes, toasted malts, slightly fruity and bitter. Kinda watery as well. Easy to drink overall. Soft to average carbonation, light to medium body, slightly creamy texture. Decent, but not too impressive.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark red-brown colour. Somewhat muted aroma with just a trace of dark, fruity malts. The flavour is stronger though with toasty malt bitterness.
