2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: clear, with a war between light brown, orange, and red for the color, with a light beige head. Aroma: notes of caramel, toasted light brown bread, a hint of nuts, cherries, and blackberries. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with the addition of a bit of must, and a decent dose of leafy, slightly dank hops. Finish: generally balanced and light, but with a slight metallic/astringent note. Notes: Not bad, but not awesome. Was hoping for more. The pull-tab cap was really, really cool.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Pours a clear very rusted red with light tan head that leaves an impressive sticky lace. A big blanket of earthy hops lays atop a robust caramel and fruit base. Has that classic red grittiness on the palate with a nice interplay of fruit and caramel. The hops show up late and follow through a decent length finish with gritty bitterness.

Dobry Red Irish Ale. Mosna, jakby kożuchowa piana i rudawy z odcieniami krwistej czerwieni kolor. W smaku intensywnie aromatyczno gożkawy. Polecam

11.2 ounce bottle from Bier 30. Pours a clear reddish color with a thick white head. A sweet nose of big toasted malts and caramel. A bit of a bitter and metallic bite in the flavor alongside caramel, light fruit and toast. Very nice. Loads of flavor for 4.4%.
