COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, Pasteurised.
An amber colored ale, Black Isle Red Kite is brewed using only the highest quality Maris Otter pale and crystal malts for flavor and body. Challenger hops for bittering with the late addition of Styrian Goldings creates a balance of quenching citrus and malt, and a classic aromatic finish to this refreshing ale. This beer is bright amber with a toasted nut flavor and powerful orange fruit aroma.

Fin (8256) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle courtesy of Nick. shared at Nick and Anna’s, Quidish, South Harris, Monday 15th June 2015 Pours reddy/brown with an off-white head. Malty and fruity but rather indistinct beer, in fact a rather boring effort from a producer who I thought usually did much better. Nothing wrong with it but at the same time very little right with it. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov11 2.9

overtheline (60) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 29, 2015
500ml bottle pours a clear reddy brown with foamy off white head that soon fades to cap. Nose is really nutty, chestnuts, hazelnuts, roasted barley and some treacle toffee. Very malty taste with a bit of oakiness and the nuttiness is still there. Nice bitter finish but again its a nutty bitterness. Nice.

Light brown colour. Floral, fruity and malty. The depth of flavour and bitter versus sweet balance are excellent. Great session bitter.

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2014
Big beige head. Clear deep red body. Perfumy orange zest aroma with earthy caramelly notes. Dryish earthy metallic orange zest taste with mealy fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry mealy fruity aftertaste with floral wooden notes. It’s OK, but a bit perfumy and one-dimensional. (0.5l bottle, from Meny Oslo City.)
