Toffee, barley aroma.
Taste is dry...toffee malt, with a mild leafy bitter.
Very nice......a little tea-like in the finish. shrubber85 (11506) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2015

Bottle 0,5 ltr: Amber coloured brew with an fine hoppy bitter taste and also fine hints of caramel. Funny history on the beer label, painting an town red. Grzesiek79 (4359) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 19, 2013
Mocno wytrawny finisz. Goryczkowy posmak. Aromat kwiatowy. Czerwono-miedziany kolor oraz niewielka piana. Gorycz jak na klasycznego bittera odpowiednia. BlackHaddock (7514) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
500ml Bottle: best before Sep 2013. Poured at home into a UK pint sleeve glass.
Reddy amber body, bright almost: off-white head of thin foam on top.
Malts rule this brew: roasted, toasted malts to be exact. Fairly sweet tasting beer with a fuity feel to the malt molasses, toffee notes can clearly be found within the malty flavour.
Crisp and well carbonated, easy to drink and interesting. jkwalking05 (4743) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Tasted in 2010 (backlog). Amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of grain and malt. Taste is the same. olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a brownish red. Smells choppy with no fruit but just malts. Tastes bitter with nothing very exciting. Extremely drinkable though as it has just the right amount of carbonation and not too strong for a session beer.
