JoTheO (102) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle 500ml. Red-brown with a thin white head. A fairly standard mild bitter, some malty notes low on the hops. Aftertaste is a bit sour. Good with food, but not something I’d drink on its own for pleasure...

Bottle in scotland. Light mahagony colour, head disapears immediately. Nose is roasted malts. Wtf its a red beer. Taste is taste is low sourness low bitterness. Light somoke. Wtf is this. Notnas horrbe as he scores suggest but feels like someone put ingredients together randomly.

500ml bottle, Asda. Dark red colour, decent head. Sweet caramel aroma worth some grassy hops. Very slightly watery but refreshing with a medium sweet light bitter taste.

MrW (532) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - JUN 19, 2016
Aroma is subtle. Herbs, fruit, cream. Brown red coloured with a creamy Tan head, lasting, lacing. Taste is one off the better ones this trip. (Which was more a whisky-exploration for me). Grainy, barley, light malt, toasted bread, something fruity. Round soft mouthfeel.

StilleStorm (1410) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2016
DWF; Bottle 500ml., from Det Gode Brygg. Pours moderate, clear cobber with a creamy, lasting and lacing off-white head. Nose is shy to moderate, malt, dark fruit, nuts, grass and spice. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with a lasting fruit and spice finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

BlackHaddock (6219) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2015
500ml bottle drank on 25th Sep 2015 during a random tasting evening I had with myself at home. Amber body with an off-white head, slight red hint to help with the beers name. Mild malty aroma and taste with a hop bitterness below the surface, getting stronger towards the end of each gulp. Expected more to be honest, lacks interest and character.

sound67 (638) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2015
Maker: Isle of Skye, Uig, Scotland *** Beer: Skye Red (cask, at Ma Cameron’s, Aberdeen) *** Style: Bitter *** ALC.VOL.: 4.2% *** "Smooth, malty and slightly nutty; lightly fuggles-hopped for aroma. Previously known as Red Cuillin" (Brewery note) *** Colour: Copper, clear, with small beige head. *** Nose: Red berries, light citrus, tiny bit malt. *** Texture: Light bodied, watery, soft carbonation. *** Taste: Malty start, with caramel, very muted dried fruits. Slightly sour. Floral notes raise their head in the middle, but malts and Rye bread prevail. Weak finish with mild floral and malty notes, wee sour aftertaste, some fruits. *** Impressions: Nothing special. Relatively thin and devoid of strong flavours. Mildly unpleasant sour note. Wouldn’t vouch for the pub though.

Aniela (4207) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2015
From my backlogg: Sampla at GBBF 2014. Clear amber beer with an offwhite head. Hoppy, malty spicy aroma. Hoppy flavour, a thin beer ....

Mørk orangebrun klar med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter brent sukker/karamell, noe røde bær, trevirke og brunt sukker. Smaker søtt, lett bitter brent karamell og frukt. Kort. Uten serlig bitterhet.
