Bottled, pasteurised;
It’s rich amber colour and superb fruity aromas are complemented by a delicious blend of malty yastes. Toffee and malt combine with bitterness on the back of the tongue to give a balanced sweetness. This is followed by a refreshingly dry finish.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a clear amber/red colored body with a one finger head that sustains for a good minute before slowly dieing to leave a clingy lacing. Some carbonation is seen rising. The smell had English pale malts - malty sweet and could be construed as "soapy" to some drinkers. The taste had a malty sweet all the way through with a strong English malty aftertaste and a quick dry finish. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium and was somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is mainly subdued and is good for the style and to me Overall, though maybe nothing special to scream about, but hey for what its worth, I could see myself having it again with some fish n’ chips.

Very aratic and bitter. Caramel colour, dry funish in the mouth. Smooth but strange taste.

The aroma is very faint, but malty with an astringent touch. Taste is dominated by hop (hay, grass, relatively bitter) with a hint of smoke.

Geruch nach kräuterigem Hopfen. IM Geschmack dann malzig und hopfig. Hopfig. Sehr bitter, aber weniger nachhängend.

Fruity and malty. A bit of bitterness and toffee to taste, with a dry finish. Nice and drinkable.

Great beer, beautiful color, great aromatic smell, little-to-no head. A great well-balanced beer.

Pours red. Malt in aroma. Malt, toffee, fruit, and nuts in the flavor. This one is decent.

Good ale to the dining table and the living rhythm. I sense a certain caramel flavor and the beer is very similar to its stronger brother.

Poured from can into pint glass: Pours dark red with a wonderful waterfall effect from the foam injecting widget. Two fingers of creamy white foam sites on top while carbonation slowly releases to meet the head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Taste is malty, a little sweet, a little musky and a bit of hop on the back end. Palate is creamy and smooth. I enjoy this beer when it is fresh and in the can. It’s not the same in a bottle, and if it’s old it is way too sweet. This is a good can.
