Beer containing tayberry juice. The tayberry is a hybrid of a raspberry and a blackberry, named after the Tay valley region of Scotland. Roisin is pronounced Rosheen.

Bamsen78 (2409) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle @ Setka Pub, Poznań. Pours slightly hazy amber with small white head. Clear aroma of hops and fruit. Sweetish flavour of fruit, flowers and caramel malt. Sweetish, slightly rough aftertaste. OK for its style.

gegwilson (612) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle from the Dram Shop, Sheffield. Pours golden with a pink tinge. There’s certainly plenty of berry flavour, but it’s not overly sweet or over powering. The beer notes that come through aren’t too interesting. Ok, but nothing I’d want to revisit.

Brown reddish and cloudy with pink foam that dosnt last. Sweet sour aroma of rhubarb and herbs. Sour, juice mild apples rhubarb, with a hint of herbs. Watery. Overall this is like juice, no beer here.

A nice surprise shared with McTapps. Pouring in with small carbo and nearly no head. A fine aroma of grape and mild-sour berries. Fine aftertaste with the smallest hints if lambic you can imagine. Refreshing and classy.

McTapps (2955) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a cloudy dirty light amber-reddish/pink colour with no head and flat body. Aroma of cranberries andmild apples. Taste of light sour berries, sugar, leaves and mild citrus fruits. Refreshing and not that bad.

allmyvinyl (2145) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 2, 2013
500ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear red tinged with gold, good white head kept going by good carbonation. Good fruit aromas, redcurrant and raspberry, with a creamy, almost vanilla note. Taste has much more bitterness than I expected, and almost overpowers the fruit sweetness. Nice, but a bit too bitter for me.

thomat (1870) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2013
Bottle @ GBF 2013. Pale red with a tiny white head. Fruity and spicy notes. Malt, fruit and acidity. Medium to light body with a dry finish.

richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2013
Punchy fresh raspberry like aroma. Flavour loses a bit of raspberry but gains a more complex fruitiness mixing elderberry and perhaps rosehip. This is really a rather good fruit beer

Eirikur (362) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - JUN 29, 2013
Very faint aroma of lager and hint of berry. Doesnt look good, no head. Taste is very faint berry 99% lager. What palate ? Will not buy again.
