Punainen pöllö puskee kitkerää kielelle, mukava ja hiljainen rakastaja. Saarivaltiot osaa.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Blind tasted. Deep amber with bit ruby, clear, beige head and bit lacing. Swwet and malty, dark bread, bit toffee. Malty, dry, alcohol evident, low carbonation, dries bit to finish, bit wood, medium body, soft feel.Minimal but balance ok, works for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle nearing its drink-by date.
L: pours a hazy copper, small head that doesn’t last long.
S: very malt-forward aroma, toffee, caramel. Very faint citrus and pine notes, perhaps dulled by time.
T: quite sweet malt base that pushes to the fore, follows the nose, ends with a light citrusy bitter hop flavour.
F: nicely carbonated, good full body for the style, the sweetness is balanced out nicely by the bitterness.
O: solid. I really like a British ale and this is such easy drinking.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pleasant enough, pour is amber with thin white head. Aroma is a mix of faint hop spice and caramel. Flavor is mostly the same as aroma, slight sweet malts. There is some breadiness with a restrained but noticeable hop finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
citrus, grass, floral, orange, cloudy, white foam, light sweetness, salty, medium body, astringent. Very fruity in smell, reminiscent of blackberries. Sweet on the tongue, but the initially pleasant aftertaste lingers a bit too long for my tastes. Overall deliciously sweet.
