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.

Dobre i gożkie piwo i o mocnym goryczkowym akcencie na finiszu. Piana spora i twoży na szklanicy ślady. Głęboko ciemnoczerwony kolor tego celtyckiego piwa tylko zachęca do skosztowania

500ml bottle served in a Thumbler glass. A: Pours a dark amber copper color. Clear. Forms a small beige to gray head with low retention. A very think layer remains on the top forever and some lacings are formed and left in the glass S: Toffee, caramel malts, wood and hops. Some notes of bready yeasts. Light lactic notes in the very end T: Slightly sweet grains upfront. Strong notes of wood. Notes of roasted malts, caramel malts, English style grassy hops. BTW, an smooth but very pleasant hoppy bitterness. In overall, a dry beer in the mouth. Very reach in flavors M: Light body. Medium to low carbonation. A little bit molasses. Excellent woody and bit bitter aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Very well done beer. Recommended [ BA Review @ 12/16/2012 ]

Mörkt brunröd med fint skum. Direkt maltig med torr beska. Ganska lång, bränd karamell i eftersmaken. Hygglig.

BiffNilsson (232) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2014
Djupröd på gränsen till brun med ljusbrun liten krona. Doft av malt och lite kaffe. Smaken är ganska tunn med lätt kolsyra. Lättdrucken och god men sticker inte ut.

Cunningham (4663) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2014
Deep amber color with a fine tan head. Ok lacing. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Bready, fruity and herbal aroma. A bit sweet, but not over the top. Quite easy drinkable. Fine body for an 4,3% beer. Malty, bready, fruity and nutty. Decent.
