Half liter bottle from Trader Joe’s Glen Allen, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a large fizzy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toasted malts and stone fruits. The taste is caramel, toasted malts, stone fruits, candied citrus and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied. Interesting.

500 ml ceramic flip-top bottle. Bright amber orange color. Smal bubbly white head. Soft grainy toasted malt aroma with some citrus hops. Sweet toasted malt flavor with subtle hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Light body and thin mouthfeel. Not much depth or complexity. Brief cloying hop finish.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear red amber with a rapidly dissipating head that settles to whispy film. Aroma is sweet, malty with a fruity hint. Flavor is full with a mild bitter finish with a biscuity toastiness. Something unique, floral, maybe citrusy in an otherwise nondescript body.

Swing-top bottle. Clear golden-brown, small almond head. Sweet, candy nose. Sour, sweet body. Clean, not terribly interesting.

A fairly basic red ale. Cool bottle. Pours a beautiful red with slight head. Smells lightly of herbs. Taste is nothing special, but not bad either. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Weirdly foamy. Does that make sense? It tasted like froth or a froth-like substances. Maybe something leftover. A bit of malt, but gritty.

Start with that soaked grain aroma that’s kind of raw. Deep and clear copper. Tastes overly sweet, like a dry wine. the body is anything but dry, however, and is medium and very still. If you’re looking for an ale that is heavy on the caramel and light on the hops, this is one to try.

Red clear, thin white head. Sweet and malty. Drinkable red ale. Crisp. Thanks tony.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2012
500ml flip-top bottle. Glowing, filtered orange-amber. Creamy, frothy head off-white head. The aroma isn’t so impressive, a little bit of garbage action. Medium bodied, relatively doughy, fluffy mouthfeel. Sub-par overall, loses points for being another fraudulent Italian beer. Drinkable, but has some noticeable off-flavors, probably not one to sit on, despite the bottle claiming it’s good for another year. I’d never buy this again.

The aroma is malt, caramel, brown sugar, bread. The appearance is amber/red, white head. The flavor is malt, cardboard, some brown sugar. The finish is nobel hops, light sweetness. Medium in body, maybe slightly thin. OK. Like most trader Joe’s beers, good for the price.
