Pours a dark reddish brown with a big off white head. Aroma is malty, caramel and chocolate, no hop bitterness on the nose. Taste is malty, caramel and chocolate, metallic notes and slight hop bitterness. This beer does not live up to its description. Not good

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned at "GolosItalia 2014". Dark amber color, ashed aspect with creamy head of long duration. Intense smoked malt aroma, notes of wood, cortex, amber malty. Good and very typical taste, good bitter palate and pleasant equilibrate alcoholic final.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a can to a glass. Pours cloudy red-brown with a huge foamy off-white head. Very nice lacing on sip or swirl. Aroma is pale malts and grains. Smells quite like a lager. Taste is caramel and roast malt followed by some nice woody hop bitterness. Very earthy all-around and with moderate carbonation. Some malty sweetness with a bitter profile dominating the backend and aftertaste. The style is not often exciting - and this beer isn't either- but it is a well-crafted red ale. I could easily down a few of these and wouldn't mind doing so.

Poured an amber color from the can with aromas of malt, light roast, some caramel and a touch of toffee. Flavors were the same more caramel came out as the beer warmed still a better beer than a macro.

Nicely balanced red. Nice red color minimal head. Good maltiness without being overly sweet. Hopping just enough to give it a kick but doesn't overstay it's welcome.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can, 6.1%. Caramelly crystal malt aroma with fruity notes. Almost clear red amber colour. Good off white head. The flavour is caramelly with a fruity, but clean hoppiness. A rather refreshing and clean beer even though I usually do not like the style.

22oz Bottle. The pour was a lightly cloudy medium copper with an average (1-2 finger) light beige rocky head that receded very slowly, down to a moderate film with a medium collar and had excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted bread malt, light grassy hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and a mild spiciness.
The taste was lightly sweet and extremely malty with a hint of caramel which was present throughout, with the finish having a decent hoppy bitterness, a touch of spice and a chewy bready ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with the hoppy malty taste fading slowly off the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just past light in body with a watery and slightly dry texture and a carbonation that was just below medium.
Overall I found this brew to have a nice balance of flavors. It possessed a good malt backbone, a light caramel sweetness and a delicious hoppy bitterness, which worked so well together that you could not help but enjoy it... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews
