"Full Flavoured Ale"
A traditional dark ruby ale, delivering full flavour at just 4% ABV. Full aromatic barley malts and an exquisite blend of hops combined to create a wonderful balance of sweet biscuit and subtle fruit flavours, with a hint of chocolate bitterness.

bfrposh (11) - Whittlesey, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2010
A very flavourful ale but on the same level as many over Mild Ales. Not too strong alcohol wise but full of flavour. Reasonably drinkable.

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2010
Dark ruby red body with thin head. Smooth soft roasted malts in the aroma. Chocolate in the taste along with some grassy notes, fairly smooth with a medium body.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2010
{thoughts} A slim and lightly toasty tipple with touch too much astringency for my tastes and an out of place herbal note.

{elements} Sparkling maroon hue; tall, off-white cream. Warm aroma of dark crusted bread with hints of coffee and jarring black tea and parsley elements. Off-dry, mild acidity, mild bitterness; tastes of bread and tea, the latter enforced by a moderate astringency. Light body, watery texture, soft carbonation. 50 cl bottle, best before 30 June 2011.

AndrewC (317) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2010
Soft mouth feel. Low hopped, slightly resinous, slightly oaky flavoured beer. Dark ruby brown. Not overly long finish or resinous malt and swift base-bitterness. Not bad but nothing to write home about.

undercurrent25 (1329) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2010
Dark ruby brown colour, full balanced flavour, a good example of the style of this ale, if not the best

TET (1430) - FINLAND - AUG 6, 2010
Dark copperbrown beer with quite weak and beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty, syrup, redcurrants and some aromatic hops. Flavour is similar than aroma, red berries, sweet malts with biscuity and wooden charicters that dries the aftertaste. Quite light to drink but still nice. Too uninspirating beer, no complaints, but nothing to remember. This beer is now tasted but probably it isn’t for my glass anymore in the future.

McWorta (477) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 4, 2010
Dusty barnyard, bit hoppy and malt smell. Some Antique/attic smell. Flat CO2. Hazy rubin red/orange. Frothy small tanish head. Medium sweet, light bitter, bit velvetish. Waterish on lips but building a light oilyness on the palate. Medium-full body, slick bit oily and straight line texture. Flat carbonation. Reminds of long faded away gunpowder,expected more of a „bang“ but still a goodn for at the bar. Can’t go wrong here really.
