Looks good. Has a nice ale-taste but combined with a refreshing carbonation. A bit thin and could use some more hops. Still nice to drink.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Draft: This tasted just like a regular guinness the only thing that was different is that it was red and maybe slightly more bitter but I even had a guinness right after this and didnít taste any difference.

Aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers, orange, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Dull, little aroma, commercial character.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 11, 2005
(on tap) I just loove that nitro-flow after the pouring. Bought this after a few guezes and it came in real handy. Real sessiondrink, mild malty mouth, tad of a bitter finish.

Crap. Iím sorry this is from Guinness. Granted I had it on tap when it followed after Lindemans Framboise and the lines were never changed. This could result in a bad test so Iíll give it hell now and rerate later.
