The Taste of Manchester or Saku Manchester for short is a classic slightly sweet light red beer brewed following the finest traditions of English brewmasters. In England this beer is called ale and every respectable traditional English pub has this type of mild red beer at the top of their beer menu. Saku Manchester gets its English accent from light and caramel malt and aromatic hops that together make the beer sweeter and give it its red colour. Characteristic to English ale, Saku Manchester has a low carbon dioxide level.

Ładna czerwonobrązowa barwa, niska piana. Średnie nasycenie. W smaku delikatne, raczej słodkawe. Dla mnie nijakie to piwo.

Piwo lekkie z niewielka pianka jak w Bitterach brytyjskich. Kolor ladny czerwono miedziany, klarowny. Zapach kasztanow, nie wiem czemu ale tak mi się kojarzylo. W smaku lekkie sporo karmelu, mało goryczy, trochę cukru trzcinowego. Jak na skosztowanie Manchesteru to powinno być bardziej goryczkowe. Piwa z Manchesteru o wiele lepsze:) za słodkie i za lekki jak dla mnie

Bottled (thanks KS!). Amber colour with a slightly off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some hay, grains and mild honey as well as some herbal notes. Flavour is herbal, mild honeylike sweetness, some floral and mild toffeeish notes. Actually not so bad, but still quite bulky.

Smooth easily drinkable beer. However, it is not a very interesting beer. Very malty, and rather sweet. I would not buy it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber red with white small head. Aroma is metallic, sugar, candies, marmalade. Taste is sweet, caramel, sugar, marmalade, some metal. Too sweet and sugary for me.

Butelka 0,5l w domu. Piękny bursztynowy kolor, klarowne, piana niezbyt duża ale zostaje długo na szkle. Aromat niezbyt mocny, trochę chmielu i wędzonki. Smak chmielu i karmelu, pieczone mięso. Przyjemnie ułożone piwo ale bez wyrazu, trochę jak napój karmelowy.

Bottle. Pours amber with whiteish head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, malt, potatoes. Flavor is sweet, malt, caramel. Carbonation is rather high. Overall: drinkable macro lagerish.

The beer looks nice. The looks aren’t that special though. The beer has an amber color, with hints of red and copper. The beer is crystal clear. The beer pours a normal amount of foam. The foam has some rough bubbles but the most of the foam is soft. The foam has an almond color. The smell of the beer is nice. I smell a little dark roast aroma. The smell is quite mild though, a little watery. I smell alcohol, a little hops maybe and some almonds. The smell is not bad. The taste is better than the smell. The taste is quite fresh. I taste hops, some sweet fruits, and a little roast. I also taste some almonds. There is a lot going on in the taste. The taste is very nice. The beer could have had a little more carboxylation.

Couleur ambrée, petite mousse beige. Nez caramel et légčres épices, note de beurre. Gout étonnant de caramel et soda au candy avec fin de bouche sirop de caramel légerement cuit et sucré. Spéciale pour le style, mais pas mauvais, faut aimer car pas courant pour une bičre
