Top fermented ruby red beer with a mild and fruity flavour and a sweet hoppy aftertaste. Contains malted barley.

Bottle. 8.5%. Best before 10.14. As ’Keizer Karel Charles Quint Ruby Red Øl’. Pours a clear amber/orange with a yellowish light tan head. Good lacing. Fruity aroma, a bit tart and dusty. Dark fruits. Dates, or plums maybe? Flavour is sweetish, bordering molasses but not quite getting there, with dark fruits. A bit heavy. Tart and somewhat bitter, dark fruit finish. Light metallic overtone. Overall okay I guess, but not really doing it for me. 12.01.14.

Jag hittade den här flaskan inne på superbrugsen i Helsingör och priset gjorde att jag inte hade några speciella förväntningar på den, men den levererade verkligen! Smaken var balanserad och fin med toner av belgisk jäst och krydda, balansen var som sagt fin och kroppen var stabil.

Red ale. Sweet and roasty aromas. Not very strong aroma intensity. In mouth it has a intense flavor. Bítter and sweet taste. Low carbonation and noticeable alcoholic sensation. Long aftertaste. Good mouth but not high quality nose. Filip

Erzengel (2399) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2013
Der Antrunk ist muffig-würzig, der Hauptteil wird fruchtiger, die alkoholische Note ist aber durchaus spürbar. Es schmeckt nach Kräutern, aber die angegebene Orangenschale ist nur im letzten Teil des Nachgeschmacks zu spüren, wo leichte Zitrusnoten zusammen mit moderater Herbe auftauchen. Der Nachgeschmack ist leicht süßlich-schwer, angenehm, aber insgesamt etwas muffig. Durchaus probierenswert.

ruigo (1037) - PORTUGAL - DEC 3, 2013
Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours an almost clear amber colour with a frothy, off-white head. Aroma is caramel, lightly fruity and alcohol. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is lightly bitter, light sweetness with a light sweet finish. Overall, a nice beer that cannot disguise the alcohol.

Bamsen78 (3004) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle, as Keizer Karel / Charles Quint, 8.5%. Pours clear dark orange amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, fruit, and orange peel. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, with fruity and spicy notes. Thick mouthfeel. Lingering, sweet finish.. Warming alcohol presence. Something for a teddy bear on a long winter’s night. Instead of a cup Glühwein, that is :-) I find it a little too sweet, though.

Une bière "rouge" qui n'en est pas vraiment une. Très légère sur le fruit et le côté vineux, elle reste corpulente mais plutôt moyen de gamme.
