Ruby red color, small steady off-white head. Lifht nose: hops, toasted malts. Palate is quite weak, dry roasted malty flavor. Overall dry, even metallic. Too watery to be actually good one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled (thanks gnoff!). Dark amber colour, small brown head. Aroma is sweet malts along with fruity hints. Flavour is samekind of bitterish sour as many of their other beers. Has some sugar, caramel and malts in it too. Unbalanced and a bit too "crispy" carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer has a dark brown body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had no carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is sweet.
