Red-brown colour, brownish head. Sweet, little malt aroma. Salt flavour, little sweet and fruity too. Not good at all.

very uncomplicated but decent rodenbach substitute. nice dark red colour with offwhite head that styx around. smooth and shallow maltiness followed by slightly tart finish.

motelpogo (6130) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 14, 2002
surprised that no one else seems to like this. it’s pretty low on flavour but pleasantly woody and drinkable

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2002
Red-brownish with a big head. Metallic aroma and metallic taste. Slightly sweet sour taste. Un-balanced.

Red ale!!!.... the only thing red ale about the beer in my bottle was the colour but then so is a baboons backside! Pours a deep ruby red clear with small tan short lasting head. Faint cola malt aroma and some faint yeast flavours. Sour??? where is it??? It’s bland, watery and barely deserves to be called a beer. The closest thing it reminds me of is of Heineken Oud Bruin which I classified as a drain pour. Ok - maybe its not that bad but its well on the way.

A sweet flemish red. Some iron is to be detected. Nice aroma.
