Bottled. Reddish. Not much aroma. Some fruity berrys and malts and thin feel. Not much finish. Insubstantial

Pours like a red ale. Smooth. Taste is great. It does lack in a good aroma, but a great brew for sitting around and drinking with friends and family.

Crystal clear red and small foamy head. Sweet malt and grassy hops on the nose. Taste is a bit bisquity, english malt, brown sugar, grassy hops. Rather thin body. Drinkable, decent but nothing memorable.

Comes out of the tap a nice clear golden amber. Head was a bit thin, but that must be an artifact of the pour. Aroma is malty, hoppy and dusty, rather pleasing. Flavor is somewhat bitter, malty and a little fruity with a hoppy undertone, bitter but not too much so. Firm texture is smooth and has plenty of fizz. Overall, one to make you howl!

Aroma of wine? Mouth feel is good. Tastes of wine, caramel, very mild hop finish. Got 3 24 packs for $5.99 each and am still unsure of my purchase. Not recommended.

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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2012 Looks, smells and tastes like every other bottled British Bitter I’ve ever had. No thank you...

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.
