COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
If you like to be different and enjoy your beers a little maltier than our Blonde this is for you. A beautifully red hued ale with fruit and berry aromas. We are the first brewery in the world to brew with Hibiscus Flowers (Hibiscus sabdariffa). The hibiscus is designed to lift the drinkability of the beer and add to the red hue provided by the Munich and Chocolate malts.

On tap at oluthuone Kaisla. Pours brown yellow with small head. Notes of hops, slight bitter and sweet combination. Kind of bland tho, more taste needed. Had this asa drink with bratwurst and sauerkraut which might explain the need for more taste. An ok ALE tho.

Sweet crystal malt aroma. Spicy, like the post-curry aniseed palate cleanser snacks. Dull, flat, keggy, and sweet. Not a good bitter at all.
