3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks like it should: deep brown, brief bubbly head. Aroma of bread, syrup, roast, caramel. Light watery body. Tastes pleasantly sweet, almost no bitterness. watery finish, bready aftertaste. Not a bad choice for those who likes it lighter.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In the glass - very dark red-brown with a small light beige head. Not at the daytime almost black. In aroma black bread, caramel and maybe some roast. Actaully smells like it should be much stronger than 4% alcohol. In taste there are too intensive bubbles - otherwise I would say it tastes like Irish Red. Low hops, but beside that - drinkable normal beer.
