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.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 Bottle. Average white frothy head not lasting. Hazy light amber colour with reddish hues. Aroma is toasted, malty and hoppy with caramel and floral notes. Taste is fruity, malty , toasted with hoppy floral and bitter aftertaste. Medium high carbonation and medium body. Quite an interesting beer where the hop dominates the malty features.

Rotin (199) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle 0,5l. Clear, light red/brown colored beer. Aroma of toasted malts, bread, fruit-forest red berries (raspberries), apples, maybe some cherries. Medium bodied, semi-sweet, flavor of red berries, hops, nice bitterness. Finish is dry and bitter- hops, bread, toasted grain.
Quite nice ale.

Ascelja (196) - 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 (1978) - 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 (395) - 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.

Rammer (346) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 3, 2015
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.
