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

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.

mrjez (478) - Osaka, JAPAN - JAN 28, 2016
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.

Dredd (836) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2016
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.
