Today is spl day of relax and enjoy. I try apecch beer in glass sent over from brother who visit place in Germany of boosted beer festival and much sexy lady. It taste good with fatir and also satisfy vigorous thirst from hot sun. It is not my favorite beer, as I do not taste banana or other spl tree fruits, but it was good price and also come in fancy bottle with cork like champagne or even wine for man like sultan or king of high society area.

This beer is amber in color. It is much sweeter than I would expect a red to be. I really like red ales and this isn't the best but for $2 a pint you can't beat it.

English pint. Ugly copper color. Pleasant odor of malts. An average tasting beer, nothing special.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear Amber with a generous off white head. Aroma is quite mild, just a little bready. Flavor is nutty - raw almond with some light maltiness. No real hop aroma or flavor. Hops are there just to keep the malt in balance. Very reminiscent of a standard British ESB, except a tad more boring. Very drinkable though hardly memorable.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle via the wife’s family who know I’m "a beer guy". Pours a murky amber/brown with minimal white head. Aroma is an odd cinnamon, spice blend with loads of stale malt and stale beer from the cap. Taste is slightly sweet, toffee, odd slight sour notes at the tip of the tongue. Overall, mech, not good, probably old and been sitting on a warm shelf.

Pours hazy mahogany into a tulip. Off-white conglomerate head with medium retention recedes leaving scant sheets. Sour pit fruit aromas. Thick with sweet caramel and toffee upfront turning to stale roasted nuts in the lasting earthy finish.

3.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is stale, bitter, without any particularly dominant tone - don’t sniff it. Very appealing pale red. Taste is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, and lightly sour - very pleasant going down. Tastes sort of like a weak-flavored Flemish red. Average fizziness with a medium body. Overall, strongly recommended as an everyday beer... but seriously, don’t sniff it.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Winter 2011 - My notes on the Nero’s Red are curt, so the review will be too. it pours with a massive bubbly, foamy head like a cheap lager, but with more malt. You can detect amber flavors here like malt, but it tastes amiss, like they used bad water. It’s too bubbly too. I think this beer might be better designed as a palate cleanser than a flavor delivery vehicle, and for that reason, something to avoid. I’m also still curious why Trader Joe’s decided to pick up a beer from Italy? Price? I still don’t think it’s worth it.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - swingtop. Reddish amber pour with a small foamy head. Nasty stale nose. Dusty caramel malts, a bit sweet, and not much hop balance to the malty sweetness. Not very good at all.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml ceramic flip top bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a moderate-large tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. The aroma is dusty malt along with a bit of caramel. The flavor is malt with just a bit of toast along with some caramel. Mild-moderate hops bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. So so.
