12oz bottle. clear copper under a medium, frothy, off-white head. sweet malty aroma with red apples, toffee and faint toasty notes. light body with moderate carbonation. the flavor is malty with light yeasty fruity esters(apple, grape jelly).

CanIHave4Beers (3537) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Pours orange with a big rocky white head that leaves good lace. The aroma is skunk & a bit of corn up front giving way to some light fruity maltiness. The flavor is clean & spicy with a pronounced toasty malt character. There are light flavors of corn & metal, but the toffee in the back & the nice hop zing seem to compensate for these shortcomings to some degree.

Bottle. Pours a really pretty red-brown with a high, fine-grained head. Nose is cherry, toast, and a touch of eau de polecat. Tastes like a mass-produced lager with a little bit of dark roast mixed in; there’s also more of the skunk, just to make it special. Finishes flat. Another beer that looks better than it drinks.

tfredvik (1322) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2011
Clear light copper body with a tiny off-white head that reduces to thin layer almost instantly. Very faint aroma, and what I smell is not good at all. Is that cooked cabbage? Surprisingly, and luckily, the flavours don’t follow the aroma: it’s malty with caramel and fruity and no off-flavours. Light sweet taste, medium bitter finish. Medium carbonation, medium to light body, smooth texture. A decent beer, apart from the horrible aroma.
[50 cl can, brewed in Norway by Borg Hansa, from ICA, Hasle, Oslo]

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2002
Firstly it’s not red but a glorious amber crystal clear under a large rapidly dissipating light white head. After that is below average. Mainly malt and some light sappy hops aromas. Medium light body. Mild bitter and light sweet palate. Light bitter finish. Boring and forgettable - stick to the stout guys.

I just didn’t like the flavor. Almost tasted like macro swill.

From the Sharp Edge European Beerfest: an intresting irish ale. I still thhough it was very little, but not completely undrinkable.

Reddish brown color, looks like gluhwein.Rather carbonated but thin. No much taste at all except from a bitter finish.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2004
Brownred beer. Sweet aroma with caramel and salami tones. Some bitterness, then nothing. Like a watered down version of Kilkenny or Dublin Red from Slottskällan. Please stop now.

On-tap: Clear reddish brown, thin smooth vanilla hued cap, specks of lacing sticks. Aroma has much ado about nothing, I wiff and wiff and I get hardly anything. Faint of all faint sweet malt. Flavors are just as offering, hello, I’m I drinking something or not. Very mild, very faint, and very quick malty sweetness with a smidge of toastyness. Irrefutably tasteless. No off flavors, just no flavors. Feel isn’t watery really, just thin and lacking. I had this in a bottle some time ago and it was so bad I decided not to review it. Saw that it was on-tap so I figured, maybe, it might be a bit better. Um....nope.
