COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, pasteurised;
Itís 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.

Aroma is skunky, taste is a coppery unpleasant sweetness like aspartame color was interesting at first but after tasting I suspected rusted pipes... I couldnít finish this beer...

Citrus notes in the aroma, flavor is typical amber ale, bitter but semi sweet. Decent beer but would not want more than one of these.

It almost looks like a malt whiskey rather than a beer with itís reddish color. Pours to a small, tan colored head that fades quickly. Has a squeemish taste about it, like it wants to be really great but isnít sure about itself. Slight bitterness as you would expect with an ale, but goes down smooth enough without an aftertaste.

PaulsPissed (37) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 1, 2009
Looks great, smells of hops, fizzy, tastes of hops, slightly fruity with a hint of caremel. Weird aftertaste. Tastes like copper, gets stuck in your mouth. clean taste but not a clean finish

Can@home. Not much aroma, but a nice hoppy flavour. Low carbonated but okay. Flavour notes of caramel.

Pours amber copper with medium offwhite head with some lacing. Flowery and spicy hops with some caramell and coffee in aroma. Malty flavor with a hard to pinpoint offtaste. Finish is dull with low carbonation.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Pours a clear amber with off white head. Smell of caramel, fruit, hint of wheat. Creamy, nutty taste with hints of everything mentioned i the aroma. Not a fan of the bitter finish, leaves something to be desired. A little thinner body than I had hoped for
