Draught. Clear reddish amber with a tiny white head that quickly disappeared. Fat dry maltiness. Corn, green apples and some ligt caramel and in the background. Veey low grassy bitterness, and a wet cardboard feeling in the finish.

nailatem (8) - SPAIN - JAN 14, 2014 does not count
Es menos roja de lo que se espera. De barril, en el pub, me sabía mejor que esta de botellín. De entrada normalita, no impresiona en nada, pero cuando llevas medio vaso te entra mejor por la nariz y por la boca. Es una cerveza muy bebible que, como tampoco es muy fuerte, invita a tomarte unos cuantas pintas más, en parte porque después de cada trago perdura cierto amargor adictivo en la boca que te empuja a pedir mas rondas. Cerveza de pub con amiguetes. Aceptable.

kapusil (514) - HUNGARY - JAN 12, 2014
0.33l bottle. Reddish orange body, off-white head. Aroma of toast and dark fruits. The taste is toasty and dark fruity as the aroma, but it also has some roasted malt and floral hop character to it. Medium bodied, easy to drink. I like it.

DocJitsu (721) - Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Pours a clear copper golden color with a fluffy, quickly dissipating caramel colored head. After a few moments, there's barely a light caramel ring on the top of the beer. A pilsenerish green grape/pear on the nose precedes toffee and caramel aromas. The texture is wet and creamy. The creaminess is noted in the flavor as well. Other flavors approximate the aromas closely.

kevd193213 (841) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Draught. Reddish amber pour with a tiny off white head. Aroma of corn and sweet malt. Thin body, goes down easy but no depth at all. Typical imported red ale, not terrible but could be a lot better.

eslfilho (12) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 3, 2014
Uma cerveja comum, leve, fácil de beber. Leve amargor e espuma reduzida. Perto das cervejas e massa brasileiras é muito superior.

vinivini (296) - BELARUS - DEC 25, 2013
Pours deep orange to brown. A: grass, yeast, a bit brown sugar. The body is rather thin along with watery finish. Tates medium bitter. Yeasty aftertaste. Not much to critisize, nothing to be fascinated of.

domienS (75) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2013
Pours a clear bright red beer with a lot of saturation and a nice white head. Smells malty, yeasty and a bit spicy. Has a fine chocolate hint also. Tastes malt bitter. The palate is bitter and lingers on for a while. Not my favourite taste and palate.
