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.

Fules (791) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAR 20, 2016
Nagy, tartós hab, barnába hajló vörös szín. Kissé karamelles, amber ale-s illat. Amber ale-s ízvilág, de markánsabb keserű, mint általában, és sokkal fanyarabb. Utóíze keserű és fanyar, némi gyümölcsösséggel, viszont nem túl tartós.

LazyPyro (569) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours a clear dark amber red colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is mainly lightly roasted malts, but sweet caramel notes appear as it gets warmer. Taste is slightly bitter roasted malt, actually kind of a smokey flavour, hint of caramel gives it a bittersweetness thanks to the burnt/roasted/smoke notes hanging around on the palate, leading to a slightly bitter aftertaste.

nephirem (246) - CROATIA - FEB 5, 2016
Pours dark ruby color with medium, short lasting, slightly off-white head. Smell is mostly burnt malts with notes of caramel. As it warms up it becomes more cake-like and caramel comes more into the light. Medium to full body with soft carbonation. Taste of caramel, bread, roasted malts, biscuits, hops. Slightly smoked. Short and dry finish. Overall, very smooth and drinkable. Would definitely drink this one again.

datrael (222) - Kraków, POLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Aromat palonych słodów, barwa ciemna czerwień, piana dość gęsta, Kremowa. W smaku dominują słody, piwo bardzo wodniste, taka lżejsza wersja dry stouta. Bardzo wysoka pijalność. Goryczka niska do średniej. Piwo dość przeciętne, nie jest jakoś szczególnie wadliwe, ale też nie porywa
