COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

Ascelja (128) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle 0,5l from Interspar Zagreb. Brown to red little hazy body, beige medium head. Aroma of the foam isn’t good, but body of beer below smells nice: dark berries, floral hops, nuts, red apples, bread. Taste is very hoppy, with it leaves, apples, strawberries, needle-leaves, bread, roasted seeds. Strong (pleasant) bitterness, slight to medium dryness (especially in the aftertaste). Medium body.
Easy drinkable and very tasty ale.

Cool_Bond (1754) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2015
Creamy, bitter and some metallic scent. The taste is bitter and some toffee. Not so good bitterness that fills the mouth’s front section to a weak moment. Do not buy this again but it was pretty mediocre. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

massingasetta (351) - München, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2015
A very bitter redish dark beer, yet the bitterness is appropriate and fulfilling. The Irish red is one sided in taste but that taste is great. A beer to definately try and savour.

Red drink. Nothing special, light bitterness. The finish is long enough. Not Bad.

Maltig söt doft. Litet huve. Lätt kropp. Kolsyrad smak & lätt karamell. Lätt maltig. Industriell? Kändes väldigt dålig i smak & kropp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska från @thaalcoholic, tack! Mörkt bärnstensfärgad vätska med ljust stort skum. Doftar lite karamell och metall. Smakar maltigt med tydlig beska.

Pours a clear dark amber/brown color, topped with a frothy beige colored head. Caramel aroma, some roasted notes and a bit fruity. Taste starts with some sweetness and caramel notes, roasted body and moderate bitterness in the finish. Nice.
