Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a deep reddish brown with a thin glass hugging head and no carbonation. The aroma is rich, fruity and of malt. The flavour is uber malty. It’s not a thick, rich beer, but you really feel as though you could chew the malt. There are some cherry notes on the palate too. This is like no other "red" I’ve ever tasted. It’s packed full of diverse flavours and deserves a better rating IMHO. The malty flavour did disappear fairly soon after it was poured though, so drink it quickly! motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 26, 2006
bottled, brewtopia, melbourne. a pretty boring style. reddish brown with a creamy head. some choc mint and toffee flavours. not awful but a bit too sweet for my tastes mkel07 (6549) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2009
Poured a murky and cloudy copper colour with a very tiny white head. Toffee and caramel notes. Has a very distinct flavour, almost soft drink like. hawthorne00 (4199) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2010
Bottle. Gushed a bit. Deep red with an inch of beige head. Aroma has a mixture of dark sugars and a little grass. Taste is fairly sweet with quite a lot of bite from the high remaining carbonation. Fizzy palate improves a little with a swirl, but this is still pretty dull. gam (4142) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2009

Full of toasted and roasted malts. Tastes like a home brew shop smells. Mild hoppy bite in the back. Good. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle cheers to the boob at good food & wine fest. Pretty straight forward beer. Massive malt bomb - burnt brown sugar, very nutty, huge toffee biscuit. Nothing wild just a solid drinker Davros (3345) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2009
Pours ruby/copper with a decent white head that then proceeded to grow into a towering mound well above the rim of the glass, and left lots of lacing.
Aroma is a mix of brown sugar, resinous hops, caramel, confectionery, white wine and bread. What an eclectic mix! Quite nice though!
Many of the above aromas are mirrored in the flavours, in particular, sweet caramel, bready malt and resinous hops. Finishes with a very tame bitterness, which lets the malt dominate in an overly sweet manner.
Body feels slightly watery, and I think a bit more carbonation might have helped to create a drier finish. bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2009
Tried on tap at the brewery. Tawny brown body with light tan head. Smooth malt taste (toffee) with a little hit of hops on the finish. jonno (3015) - JAPAN - DEC 4, 2009
Poured a deep amber hue with fizzy head. Nose is unique malt, although not too interesting. In the mouth it is a little thin but has a unique character. Didn’t really agree with me.
