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

Klar mörkröd med fin beige skumkrona. Doftar lite karamell. Smaken maltig och lite söt. Fin mjuk beska i eftersmaken. Lagom kolsyrad. God.

Pours a dark cherry colour with a creamy head. Neither the taste or aroma is strong though both a pleasant.

This is a fine malty red with good color. An aroma and mild taste of copper put me a bit off though.

@ Basunen 16-4-30: En mycket maltig och kanske något söt red ale som funkar bra till kryddat mat. Ingen stor sensation men fin och trevlig balans.
