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.

Finwe (412) - Grankulla, - FEB 23, 2013
Draught at Kaisla, Helsinki. Reddish brown with a small, slightly off-white head. Very fruity aroma with some malt and grassy hops. The flavour hoppy bitter with fruity hibiscus and some sweetish malt. A bit watery palate.

McNeillR (1273) - SCOTLAND - MAR 1, 2014
Clear firm reddened body, whisked white cap of head. Gummy Farty fruit malt nose. Initial taste isnít much different, uncooked sweetcorn thrown in. Cheap sweetcorn at that. Peering floral finish, dry sweet linger. This tastes like itís been on two weeks too long?

Cask at Haymarket Bar. Pours a clear gold, nice white foam head. Biscuit and red fruit on the aroma, light bittersweet biscuity taste. OK, nothing special. Glad I couldnít pick up the hibiscus to be honest, canít stand the stuff.
