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.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - APR 22, 2004
Bronze coloured ale with off-white head. Medium complex flavour with roasted malts, underlying malty sweetness and a bit hops. Smoke? Some bitterness in the finish (coffee too?). Overall a fairly nice ale.

Amber colored. Tons of smoke in the aroma. Also in taste the smokey aroma is too dominant.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2004
I do not know why every red ale has to do this. I am very disappointed. Overly watered down malty taste, with some caramel toffee sweetness, but not enough to save the day. Thin and creamy, but nothing is going on here.

crazyvin (1940) - New York, USA - MAR 14, 2004
rather bland. A watered down hops taste with some carmel like malt notes. It did have a creamy aspect to it but it could not save this beer.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2004
Little hoppy and malty aroma. Brown color, beige head, very nice lace. Light sweet, malty, caramel, nice hop bitterness, medium body. Not outstanding but still a very nice ale.
