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.

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

spartakbarnsley (27) - 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!

Clear red beer with a foamy head. Light fruity aroma. The flavour is light, crisp and zesty with a creamy, malty aftertaste. It’s not the strongest-tasting, most distinctive beer but it’s quite pleasant.
