Characterized by a taste full and round,which is in the medium-high alcoholic content the opportunity to express its full potential. The hot red colour and creamy foam and persistent crown in an exemplary way the features of taste, enhancing its value.

Formerly called Castello Birra Friulana Riserva Rossa Planais

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Aroma intenso di caramello con note nocciolate. Schiuma nella media, compatta ma poco persistente, colore ambra assolutamente cristallino. Gusto dolce, delicato e rotondo al palato con una lieve punta acidula. Una birra più che decente ad un prezzo altamente competitivo. Intense aroma of caramel with hints of dried fruit. Medium foam which is compact, not persistent though. Absolutely crystal clear amber color. Sweet taste, delicate and round on the palate with just a little acidic tip . A very decent beer for a really convenient price.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 Baked bread in aroma and a little bit of diacetyl. Light amber, transparent color. Foam quickly disappears, almost no lacing. Average carbonation. In taste there is baked bread and caramel behind. Rather sweet. Average bitterness and quite long bready palate.

Enjoyed this in Sicily, this "red lager" is an amber bock-ish lager that features an interesting hazelnut and fruit accent to an otherwise average caramel malt flavor profile. Appearance accordingly is a red-amber color. Aroma is mostly caramel malt, not much hoppiness on the nose or in the taste, again almost a hazelnut/chocolate caramel maltiness. Slight tinge of booze and of industrialism, but not an issue. Overall, a unique and affordable lager beer that packs both a solid ABV and a solid flavor, recommended.

Bottle. Dark amber, very clear, a small head which leaves lacing. Dark fruity, malty aroma. Malty, raisiny taste, chocolate hints, plenty of carbonation. Quite nice.

Bottle; unfortunately I bought this from a street vendor in Venice and did not get a cup or glass and had to drink out of the bottle; aroma is malty; taste is somewhat sweet with malt and some caramel; finish was bitter; if I try again in a glass I will update my rating.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 BOTTLE 33 CL. Sweet, caramel, candy, rich body. Simplistic but still decent.

milo91hd (151) - Lecce, ITALY - AUG 25, 2014
Bottiglia, colore ambrato con una schiuma poco persistente, aroma di malto e zucchero, il sapore è molto semplice e amaro, corpo medio e leggera carbonazione.

whoisghost (92) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2014
This beer has no redeeming qualities. An average colour- red with a thick white head. No aroma to speak of- smell the alcohol though. Tastes like alcohol. Reasonably well carbonated with a watery mouth. Never again.

TBone (13637) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Bottled 330ml from Tallinn. Deep clear amber color, quickly vanishing head. Grainy, a bit burnt sugar in the nose. Medium-bodied. Harsh grainy, malty with caramel and alcohol. A bit similar to Baltic dark/amber lagers.
