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.

This is an exceptionally good session beer--really one if the best I've ever had. It's packed with hops flavor without having to rely simply on bitterness to mask what can often be a lack of maltiness in low- gravity beers as this beer has a nice balance providing a full flavored drinking experience without relying on a huge grain bill. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 Bottle from Sainsbury's. Pours a clear red brown with a fluffy sandy tan head. Lots of lovely bubbles in the glass. Nose is light with a treacle malt and little brown sugar. Taste has the treacle and brown sugar with a light boring leafy hop. It's light to medium bodied with a soft moderate carbonation. A fine bittersweet red ale.

Couleur ambrée; mousse blanc-crème; arômes et goût maltés et un peu fruités; texture aseez légère; finale un peu amère

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2017 Red ale sympa, bien dans son style, c'est à dire facile à boire, léger, sur le caramel, tofee, un peu de malts plus sombres en arrière plan' et une amertume douce qui balance bien le tout

belfastjames (20) - Belfast, NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 18, 2017
Pours amber with a white fluffy head, pretty average aroma and taste to go with it. Average beer

Grumpelmies (431) - GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Amber/copper coloured. Nice foamy head. Mild aroma of toffee, nuts and hints of citrus fruits. Taste is malty, slighty fruity, a little bit nutty, caramell and bitter liquorice. Finish is quite bitter. Low to medium carbonation. Ok.

DanielBrown (4563) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle from Tesco, Stirling. Pours amber. Medium thick foam crest, bits of seafront lacing. This is not necessarily an exciting beer, but it is tasty and well made. Crusty UK hop type flavour, with bits of sweet malt. Fresh, with some rye berry effect.
