Aroma is pretty faint but there are some toffe and a bit floral there. Amber clear, white beige head. Taste is a bit caramelly and pretty floral and earthy bitterness. Light to medium body average carbonation. Pretty nice as a lighter beer, but would love more arome, however it is better on tap.

En ganska blaskig global produkt. Hm, svårt att komma med något mer begåvat. Absolut drickbar.

Being as big as it is, this beer is actually quite good and unless I get a pour from a tainted tap or a shite can, there hasn’t been a bad experience. As far as looks goes, the ruby-brown number is handsome and has a nice creamy, almost Guinness-quality head to match. Smells and tastes of roasted grains, peat, butterscotch, earth, nuts and maple. Very low hip-hop like most Scottish beers I have tried. All aboot the malts, laddy! Smooth, low carbonation feel with a mid-heavy chunkiness.

ninecats (101) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2014
Clear darkish red, big white head with some lacings. Aroma is malty, dust, marzipan, caramel. Taste is about the same, a bit wattery. Medium body, high carbo. Quite decent.

Nitro pour at Chesapeake Bay Beach Club last night. Ticking beers and gigging. Not so bad. Initially, the beer displays a turbulent and hazy storm, with granular sandy liquid gradually settling to a pretty ruby hued body with a thick and pure tan collar. The aroma brings some sweet malt, lightly fruity, grain notes. Similar flavor. The nitro-tap really does wonders for beers of this ilk. Smooth and creamy. Easy to drink. No harsh flavors detectable. Simple and easy going. Nothing to wrote home about, but this is a solid beer to find when I thought perhaps there may be no decent beer options.

kingstoni (1427) - FINLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Can. Hazy deep amber color with a thick foamy brown head. Aroma of malt with notes of caramel. Dry taste of roasted malt.

A pleasant and easy to drink red ale. Soft, with a lovely texture that fits well in the mouth
