Cerveja escura, teor alcoólico baixo. Seria um sabor tostado?! Vale a pena

A classic style, the brown-ruby ale is topped off with a cream head which diffuses back down into the beer but not before giving you a quick insight into the taste. A clear malt base give toffee, caramel and chocolate smells and a sour yet refreshing flavour. Not too strong either so would be ideal for a session if you like the darker/brown ales. Well worth trying.

wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2012
Clear dark brown in appearance, it has little aroma or flavour, but makes up with a very good texture.

motelpogo (7054) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 1, 2012

Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2012
500ml bottle from an off licence store in Chorlton. Clear red-brownish body. Fading off-white head, spotty lacing. Smell of earthy, semi-sweet malts. Toasted malts in flavour added by hints of dark fruits. Foamy in the mouth. Drinkable, standard stuff (hotel room, Manchester 07.07.2012).
