Purchased and consumed in Serbia, bottle. Pours a very nice reddish amber color, clear and bright with a medium ivory foam. Nose: roasted malts, some fresh caramel, grass final note. Soft nose but nice. Mouth: frizzy start, watery, a hint of cherries liquor, peppery-frizzy overall. More than decent, quite tasty.

Cask@25th Burton Summer Beer Festival, 2007. Dark amber beer with a fruity, malty and lightly hopped aroma, and a crisp toffee and hopped flavour. Overall a very nice smooth beer.

Beermack (725) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 21, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Black Sheep, Dublin. Deep red with small white frothy head, plenty of lacing. Aroma full of rich almost nutty malt and earthy English hops. Taste full of depth, very full mouthfeel with a lovely degree of earthy hop bitterness, thick caramel malt, nutty notes too. A solid Irish red.

Kita (1599) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 30, 2012
Draught, half a pint. Clear deep amber color with small beige head and soft carbonation. Caramel malt and fruity hops aroma. Taste of sweet caramel and toffee malt with dried fruits note and abrupt bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture and moderate carbonation in palate. Very good one, but a bit too sweet...

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 21, 2013
Red amber with a foamy white head, great lacing. Bread, sweet toasted malt and touches of caramel in the aroma. Flavour follows the nose. Slick mouthfeel, very robust. Some nice hop bitterness in the finish. A great imagining of Irish Red Ale.

Tayeth (511) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Geruch nach Äpfeln, Karamell, und ein bisschen nach Keksen. Geschmack einerseits geprägt durch Malz andererseits durch sehr angenehm harmonisierte Hopfennoten.

The beer had a beautiful amber/ruby red color. The color is vey nice. The beer pours a minimal amount of foam. The beer looks appealing. The smell is very nice. There is the aroma of almonds, some roast and coffee, really nice. I can also smell some alcohol and a nice sweetness. The taste is slightly less good, compared to the smell. The taste has a roasty coffee like flavor, a nice bitterness. The sweet taste of the alcohol balances this out. The taste is nice. The beer has a nice feeling in the mouth.
