Draught, served as Dooliner. Red colour, white head with very good lacing. Aroma is pleasant, malty, with some hops. Easy to drink, seems to represent the style well.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bue en bouteille. Couleur rouge profond. Houblon au nez, note caramélisées en finale. Assez déséquilibrée à mon avis.

bottle. amber red with one finger head. if you took a mediocre red ale and added some rotting vegetable flavors, you’d pretty much have this one nailed. i couldn’t drink much of it before i dumped it down the drain.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Botella de 330ml. Copa de Vino. Color ambarino oscuro y rojizo con tintes rubí a contraluz. Espuma bronceada clara y corona que se disipa con lentitud. Aromas de ciruela pasa, dátil y malta caramelo. Entrada reseca con sabores caramelizados y leve amargor herbáceo. Cuerpo medio-ligero y carbonatación moderada. Leve notas aciduladas y de madera en el seco final y el refrescante retrogusto. Deliciosa y saciante.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 bottle. Clear, dark carmine color and a small, off-white head. Malty aroma of caramel and some nuts - it’s very soft and other than that there’s nothing more in it. Taste is sweet wit loads of caramel, some nuts, earth, and a noticeable hop bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, and average carbonation. Finish is still sweet although a tad dry which could have been expected due to the notable hop presence. Overall a nice beer but does not impress.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is a little faint, grainy, kvass-like, and definitely sour. Pours an exceptionally pleasant, soothing, slightly hazy deep brown with a large, crazy stable head. Very sour; the bitterness approaching medium but overshadowed by the sourness. Body below medium, carbonation low, finish weak, sour and bitter. Not too bad, certainly not spectacular, much too sour for my liking.

O’haras irish red from bar in Rome. Clear red ale with good off white head. Malty and hoppy aroma. Same taste, but slightly metallic. Prickly, and quite thin. Average.

33cl Bottle from a bottle shop on Syros. Clear deep reddish amber-brown colour, light-beige head. Aroma of caramel, burnt sugar, molasses, roast, toast, some green hops. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, caramel, roast, molasses, decent hoppy bitter finish. Light-bodied. Tasty.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna. Dark copper, clear body, with a big, rocky, beige, really stable head, that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma of nuts, chocolate, roast, hay, dark berries. Taste is a bit watery, with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is light, with almost no carbonation and it finishes light, roasty and bitter. It starts very promising, but unfortunately it gets worse with every step: beautiful appearance, decent aroma, watery taste and finally a really light mouthfeel. Much too thin for my liking, even when considering the low ABV.
