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.

DanielBrown (4474) - 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.

wheresthepath (2258) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2017
Bottle from Beer52. Deep copper with a lasting beige head. Toffee and minerals at first, then warming juicy chewy malt, creamy butterscotch, berries, orange and earth with a dry finish. Not big punchy flavours, but great balance and good depth. A top-notch and very satisfying bitter.

radassace (214) - SCOTLAND - JAN 11, 2017
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.
