Bottle sample at Ran and Dale’s. Thanks Rachel! Clear red. Raspberry, cherry, then some toast in the nose. Mild bitterness, berry and then sweetness. Mild carbonation, light body. Meh.

Odd to see poor reviews of this. Great quaffable red. Aroma is that of raisins and dark fruit. Carries through to the taste with some caramel and toffee notes. Mouth feel medium but clean finish.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer&Beyond shop. Clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, honey, slightly oxidized and fruity. Sweet, flavors of honey, caramel, fruits, toasted bread, notes of oxidation, dry with light bitterness. Medium-bodied. Seems old.

Luvystypotables (1451) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2016
Not sure what beer the deScription is for but it is not the beer I tasted. Weak aroma of fruits and nuts, pours a clear reddish brown color with a short lasting off white head. A watery body with a weak nutty taste and a slightly fruity finish.

theread (58) - Wagga Wagga, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle from Dan Murphy Wagga. Poured nice red colour but the head was thin and didn’t last too long. Nice caramel and dried fruit taste but not as strong and lasting as I would have expected after being told about this one. Easy to drink and could cause dramas with the 5.8% alcohol as it could sneak up on you if you had a few.

bastarda (367) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2016
shared with Konfuzzi Dec/15. aromas of dark caramel malts with a nice hint of wood/oak. Tastewise quite a let-down, too watery, diluted caramels, flat, boring.

Rating #1534 - 20.03.2015 - On tap at San Diego Zoo Nice amber/orange colour with a decent white/tan foam with medium retention. Aroma is sweet, toffee malt,. Taste is very strong, caramel malt and a hint of currant. Bold malt forward amber that is quite drinkable.

Fisler (332) - Bamberg, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2015
Schöne rote Farbe, zügige Perligkeit. In der Nase Röstmalz, Pflaume, Karamell. Im Trunk kräftig malzig, leichte Frucht, mittig alkoholisch, im Abgang nochmal stärker Malz. Sehr schön rund und doch komplex. Sehr lecker.
