Pours a transparent copper with hints of red and a thin, white head that fades. Fruity, almost wine-like nose. Creamy but thin and flat mouthfeel. Taste is subtly straw-like, with not much flavor. Meh.

As a fan of belgium and german beers and certainly a fan of irish/english beers, this blood ale is excellent. Great aroma, sweet scent. Appearance is dark red, very appealing and fitting to the name. Taste is great, I love the new castle ale too. Fruity, small bite, great finish. Carbonation is not flat, but just right for me.

Bottle. Poured clear ruby color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex rye malt aroma. Medium body with a smoot texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into an English pint at 42°. Color is a deep amber that leans to the brown. Carbonation is good with a small off white head. Aroma is a nice roasted malt scent with just a hint of hops. It has a lighter medium body that gives a smooth mouth feel with a slight fizzy feel on the end. Flavor comes in sweet and roasted then a touch of hops give a mild bitterness and just a hint of citrus. After taste is dry as the bitterness comes out a little more. Overall its a good brew, like a robust Amber crossed with an ESB.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a light clear amber (not blood red) with a small off-white head. Strange aroma of moldy, sour grain. Taste is a bit better, with sweet fruit, grain, and malt. Just nothing positive to say.
