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.

chinchill (4202) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 9, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2016 500 ml bottle in Scotland with a BB date of June 2017. Deep copper colored body with good clarity and a very good head. Clean, mild flavor with some toffee and near even bitter/sweet balance. More hops than expected for style but still malt dominated. Smooth medium+ body with lively carbonation.

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