2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty average compared to the next level of quality brew, but compared to what’s usually available around here, you could do a lot worse. Fairly hoppy, plenty of flavor, though not quite "blood red" as advertised.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown 33cl btl from Isrenna Ica.
Faint scents of rotten vegetables, when I opened it.
Arome is actually roasted prunes, chestnuts, some malts I assume.
The caramel-white head starts fluffy and leaves many fields inside my mug. Beautiful brown caramel amber body.
Tastes caramellic malts, faint hops, some danish øllebrød (small-beer).
Mouthfeel slippery, metallic a bit.
Ends with crunched dark bread, low bitterness, and overall easy to drink for us who know øllebrød. This "premium bitter esb" is not far from a polotmawy actually.

Bottle. White head that lingers for a bit. Beautiful brow-red color. Balanced taste. Not too bitter, not too sweet. A great fall beer without the pumpkin!

Bottle. Low fluffy white and quickly disappearing head. Clear dark brown body. Alcohol dominated aroma with caramel and chestnuts. Mild malty flavor with little hops bitternes as well as some caramel and besides slightly sour. High carbonation. Short finish.

From a bottle, smokey porter/lager. Very disappointing. Would not drink again. Will stick to Newcastle original

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Something had to be #600 for me, and this is it. Aroma is of bakery and bourbon. Beautifu dark red w/beige head. Foam lasts a good long time with some light lacing on the glass. Flavor is a bit unusual. Bready but flat. Overall this is one of the best reds out there. Bottle at my sisters house.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle. Easy and simple bitter. If it was not for its texture - smooth and velvety - it would be just bitter and not premium *(thou premium bitter should have some extra ABV). Good for a Halloween party, but only for that. Mixed feelings with this one.

Not much aroma her, the little aroma i find is of caramel, hay and some roasted grains. The appearance is not blood red as read on the bottle (luckily) but more of an amber colour. very clear with a white small head. The taste is sweet from the malts and some bitterness from what i think is some sort off roasted malt and hint off hops. light body with a nice carbonation, a bit on the fizzy side. Overall an easy drinkable ale, not to exciting but not bad.
