COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, Pasteurised.
An amber colored ale, Black Isle Red Kite is brewed using only the highest quality Maris Otter pale and crystal malts for flavor and body. Challenger hops for bittering with the late addition of Styrian Goldings creates a balance of quenching citrus and malt, and a classic aromatic finish to this refreshing ale. This beer is bright amber with a toasted nut flavor and powerful orange fruit aroma.

500ml bottle. Pours an deep copper red with an off white head. Didnt get a huge amount from the nose tbh apart from some red fruit and toffee malt. Has a very light mouth feel and is fairly carbonated. There is much more in the taste though, sweet toffee and apple with some blackberry and bitter orange. Has a slight toasted and nuttiness to it and a touch of bitterness at the end. Pleasant brew and I love the fact its organic.

AndyRumsey (4) - Loughton, Essex, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2016 does not count
Bottle drunk at home. Peaty butterscotch aroma. Hops well to the back. Burnished amber colour with creamy head. Sensible carbonation. Rich taste, not too sweet, quite earthy with a tone of Dundee Marmalade. A little cloying: Not my favourite style but the other half liked it a lot.
