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.

doradobotella (89) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2014
Apariencia: De color marrón rojizo, con una capa de espuma blanco y de burbuja fina. Aroma: Bastante maltoso; recuerda a caramelo, toffe e incluso a sirope, pero sin llegar a saturar. Sabor: Similar a los aromas que desprende y con un final amargo en cada trago que redondea el sabor.

spartakbarnsley (30) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle from Pivnaya Karta, St Petersburg, Russia. Solid organic ale. Malty aroma and nice golden colour. Plenty of body for the ABV, probably would be a good session beer if I was in Scotland and it wasn’t a fiver a bottle!
