A beautiful ruby colour with little head makes it a very attractive beer, and the slightly malty aroma goes well too. The taste is also malty/roasted but isnít overpowering, making it easy to drink and a very pleasant drink overall.

Ottima red ale inglese molto profumata e amabile al naso: frutti rossi e miele su tutto. Al gusto riaffiorano i frutti rossi e il loro acidulino ne fa apprezzare la beverinità. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85
