3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Interesting beer. I didn’t expect it to be anything like it was. A very substantial beer. Its says its a Red Ale on the label, but its more of a scotch ale. Caramel and maltiness permeate the taste. The alcohol is a bit too promanent for my tastes. Overall its worth trying. Nice to see local stores carrying new beers I haven’t tried.

This beer has small head with an amber color. The nose has raisin. The flavor is raisin, followed by a crispness followed by a very coppery flavor. the finish a bit crispness and mineral but very round.

clear amber with a big off white head. Sweet fruit and yeast aroma which is surprising with the dry, somewhat bitter flavor. Just a hint of alcohol too.

The pour is a deep red with a two to three finger tan head. The nose is bready malty, citrus, caramel and molasses. The taste is malty and sweet syurpy and thick with hints of yeast. The beer would be better 5 or 6 years down the road.

Smells like a typical red, biscuty maybe a hint of chocolate. Its a deep red clearish beer with an off white head. Malty taste with a bit of alcohol feel. Sweet medium body, i taste a hint of chocolate. It seems like it expands on your tounge when you sip it. Not a typical red but not bad worth a try

A decnet beer that mimics many others. Smells standard and tastes like the bastard child of better beers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. 11.2 fl. oz. Slightly hazy, ruby color with nice, silky cream-colored head. Excellent lacing and longevity. Aromas of fruit, vanilla, caramel, and light alcohol. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and light, dry finish. Flavor is fairly sweet and fruity all the through with a faint bitterness. Smoothes out nicely as it warms.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottiglia da 33 cl. Color ambrato carico con schiuma compatta e persistente di color nocciola. Buoni i profumi con frutta matura, malto tostato e liquirizia. Al palato si presenta con un amaro piuttosto aggressivo che lascia poi spazio alla frutta ed una forte liquirizia sul finale, carbonazione un pò eccessiva.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark amber with a huge white head that lasts for ever, and leaves tons of lacing. Tons of malt, toffee, biscuit, caramel with a touch of alcohol warming in the aftertaste. Might have benefited with some aging , but there is a nice flavour and it goes down real smooth.
