3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2014 Bottled 06/07/13. A hazy red coloured beer with a pinky hue and an off-white head. A fruity raspberry infused lager. A pretty reasonable base beer with nice fruitiness makes this very palatable. Fruity and refreshing. Nothing wrong with this. Score 3.2
Subsequent ratings scored 3.2 and 3.3. Score unaltered

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pinky ruddy colour with a thin head. Strong raspberry aroma though somewhat dry. Taste, sweetish raspberry, honey, some bitter finish and a little sour note. Pleasant if a little ’pop-like’.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thick, dense pink head over pinkish to terracotta beer, well- but lazily carbonated. Raspberry jam, caramel, frying oil, currant leaf. Initially somewhat bitterish raspberry/fruity flavour, ending in sweeter raspberry jam. Light MF, feels well-carbonated, finish has some syrupy slickness. Not bad, but the Glen Ample blurb fails to convince me. More’s the pity.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
275 ml bottle @ the Voyager Bistro. Clear lighter berry red, fine fading pink foam. Pleasant pungent raspberry fruity aroma. Sweet berry fruity taste, verging on cloying, faint trace of malt and not much else. Average carbonation, light bodied, no hopped. Nice enough desert beverage. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a bright pink, with a light pink head that rapidly dissipated like a soda. Aroma of raspberry syrup, some candy sugar and straw in there. Flavours were dominated by similar fake raspberries. I didn’t find this to be totally undrinkable, but only because I quite like raspberry flavour.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy dark pink pour with a fairly minimal head that leaves a ring of lace after mere seconds. Smells like raspberry concentrate with just the barest hint of beer underneath. Moderately sweet palate with a nice texture but that’s about the best part of this beer. It tastes mostly like raspberries, more fresh than the concentrate on the nose but there’s really nothing else going on here.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pink, slightly hazy beer with a thin, filmy head. As you’d expect, raspberry is the main aroma and flavour but it’s balanced a lot better than these beers often are. It’s not sugary and sickly and beneath the raspberry flavour it does still taste like beer. Not something I’d want a lot of but the odd one on a sunny day would do nicely.

275 ml bottle. Pours a clear pale red with a small, short lived pink head. Strong, sweet raspberry aroma. Sweet flavour of sugary raspberry. Light body with a sticky, watery texture and soft carbonation.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear pinkish color with a fizzy white head. Aroma of raspberries and sweet sugar. Taste is much of the same and and like the strawberry one except the raspberries are more natural tasting rather than a concentrate bit the sweetness still dominates any beer characteristics.
