En god maltet smag, med en let syrlighed i slutningen. God fyldig, men er en anelse for syrlig i eftersmagen efter min mening.

"not much on the peat-smoked malt in the nose or the flavor...and for that matter, itís not Red, as the label implies, but ever so slighlty redder than your average macrobrewed lager. I can smell and taste the faintest of smoke, but only because iím looking for it. nice body, thanks to a respectable 7.3 abv, thicker than it looks and sweet, which ends up being the predominant factor in the nose and flavor as there is a complete lack of hop presence."

Dark amber pour with a small white head. Aromas of sweet biscuit malt and caramel. Flavor is pretty similar, very sweet. Slight smoke in the finish but itís subtle. Decent but a bit one-dimensional.

Patrickctenchi (6037) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Pours bubbled, weak brown with a minimal, off-white head. Strong breadiness, grain aroma. Taste is sweet....malt and breadheel, a hint of salt. Very light smokiness...more in aftertaste... Seems a little off.

Malty aroma. Amber color with medium white head. Tastes sweet and a lot like raisins. Body is light and texture is oily. Carbonation average with short finish. Overall, itís an above average beer which matches nuts very good.

Bottle @ a recent bottle share... Poured amber golden with a slightly off-white head. Earthy with some peated and smoked tones. Sweet but not cloying as it had a thinner mouthfeel than expected. Drinkable, but I wouldnít say it was totally smooth. Dark fruits and anise spicing came through too.

Back at the turn of the century this was sold here when I first started drinking something that wasnít Pil. Found the bottle in the basement - 7.3%. Wasnít a fan back then of the Shloss line. Icky brown floaty stuff with a foamy, sticky head. Weak aroma. Really really weak. Grass, grainy toasted crusts. Too bad the crusts were not stronger cuz they are good. The tate has improved after leaving this on the table for an hour. Malty and malty. Light grain power, meh - Iím done with this. Very disappointing to see this come out of the box.
