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.

This is an exceptionally good session beer--really one if the best I've ever had. It's packed with hops flavor without having to rely simply on bitterness to mask what can often be a lack of maltiness in low- gravity beers as this beer has a nice balance providing a full flavored drinking experience without relying on a huge grain bill. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chambertin94 (7) - le perreux sur marne, FRANCE - JAN 22, 2016 does not count
nez un peu discret, la couleur invite à la dégustation, douce et soyeuse, l’attaque chocolaté est délicate, une petite pointe citronnée maintient la persistance, manque toutefois un peu de volume en finale.

Brown bottle, tesco, 500ml. Pours medium dark caramel with a medium white head subsiding at an average pace. Scent is dense nut ale notes with light malt. Taste is medium ale and medium roast malt. Finish is a little sharp. Fairly plain but good.

bbertels (281) - NORWAY - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle. Bought at Tesco, St Andrews. Low carbonation and timid aroma. Reddish in colour giving the impression of a red ale. OK enough to drink to quench ye ole tirst but a bit weak.

Robe ambrée, assez foncée. Prédominance des saveurs caramels, sans subtilité en bouche. Une bière sans intérêt.
