A red beer to halt you in your tracks, giving you a warm red glow! A mellow malty flavour, from Wold grown barley, dark crystal malt and roasted barley. Hopped with Progress hops. The best beer to use for ‘beef in beer’.

Golden brown with a light cream head. Smell is caramel and faint hops. Taste is well balanced between caramel and bitterness. A good session beer, but no gold medalist ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (3760) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
500ml bottle: BBD end of Dec 14. Poured into a Batemans pint sleeve on 14 Sep 14 at home. Good chestnut body, clear and clean looking, thin off-white wisp and collar for a topping. Good malty feel to the aroma and taste, not sweet, yet malts rule the smell and flavours from start to finish. Pleasant and easy to drink, a decent semi-dark malt based brew.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle. A finger-thick light beige head over a mostly clear dark amber colored body. The aroma is quite malty, with toffee and caramel and some dried fruits. Not much impact from the hops neither in the aroma nor in the flavor. Some bitterness and a touch of grassy, piney hops. Medium body, with a soft carbonation. Semi-dry. Decent bitterness in the finish, with some caramel and toffee-ish malts and a hint of prunes. Nothing impressive going on here, but at least it’s flawless. 140808

Bozo_skeleton (500) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 4, 2014
Orqngee limpide, tres peu de carbo, petit collet de tres fines bulles. Aromes caramel, fruits sec et marmelade. Douce a l’attaque sur des notes de fruits, tres mince mais avec un final bien amere et belle longueur sur caramel.

Cunningham (4492) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2014
World cup and England on tv. The sun shines and a pint of bitter in the glass. Can it go wrong? Oh yeah. England and World Cup are a bitter story. The bitter ale was far better than the bitter match. Uruguay 2- England 1. Nice deep nutty color with a fine off white head. Ok body and an good carbonation. Bottled bitter are better than handpull. Maltt, nutty, mild herbal and some fruity notes in both aroma and flavor. Decent ale.

Bottle Dark-reddish colour with a small white head. Aroma of toffee and caramel with a hint of fruits. More toffee and sweet malts in the taste with a subtle hoppy finish. fairly strong carbonation which makes this a very refreshing, drinkable beer.

Bottle 500 ml at home, into a big Guinness glass. ABV 4.3% Red amber colour on the body, with one finger of tan head, thick, with good retention, lwaving heavy lacing on the glass. Aroma of burnt caramel and red fruits, sweet, weirdly enough with a touch of alcohol. Taste has plenty of caramel, again quite fruity,malty, light hops on the finish, mild bitter aftertaste. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall an okay bitter, smooth with high drinkability.
