COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, - NOV 17, 2013
500ml bottle enjoyed after work watching the football! Pours a very nice deep, dark brownish red with a one finger frothy beige head that leaves a nice lacing and a little clinging head. Aroma is slightly metallic with an amount of caramel and a little straw and bread (improved as the beer warmed up a couple of degrees). Taste is better, a delicate balance of bready sweetness and redcurrant bitterness. Aftertaste is abrupt, mostly light caramel, with medium body and reasonably lively carbonation. A pretty decent red ale, but nothing entirely remarkable.

Aroma of caramel and roasted malt. The same applies to taste, added with certain sweetness. Some floral and herbal notes with moderate bitterness. What a beautiful balanced beer.

JorgeLee (1850) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2016
Bottle, in the hotel at Ellen’s wedding. Ruddy brown colour, thin white foam. Sweetish malts, toasted, toffee, hint of fruit, bit of diacetyl, not overly bitter. Having it on bottle not keg helped the flavours survive the nitro creaminess I think. Easy drinking ale, decent enough.

Castaña cobriza de tonalidades rojizas, limpia sin sedimentos y transparente. En nariz, maltas caramelo, grano tostado, herbal, diacetil bajo. En boca, carbonatación media-baja y sensación ligeramente oleosa. Sabor dulce maltosa, a frutos rojos con un final seco y ligeramente amargo.

(Flasche) Es hat Nussbaum braune Farbe, scheint filtriert mit einer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Das ist fruchtig, Erdbeere, Pflaume, Alkohol, etwas nussig und Honig. Der Geschmack ist anfangs sehr schlank, dann bitter und dann samtig. Es schmeckt nussig, holzig und die starke Bittere bleibt am Gaumen kleben.

Colour is deep dark copper. Aroma is caramel and toast. Flavour is roast malt, toast, earth, caramel and hops. Palate is thin. Overall the aroma is nicer than the taste.

medium and sweet aroma - well caramelized malt, oak barrel, fruit tree wood a bit burned, sweet berries in alcohol. moderate dry taste - a lot of caramelized malt/sugar, flowers, honey, black bread crust, some yeast. very good and balanced!

Appearance is nice and aroma is good. The taste is not my cup of tea - it was just too bitter.
