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.

Pours a dark brown colour with a thin brownish head. A little bitter at start that quickly vanishes and leaves a pleasing taste.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2017 Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Eher Kupferbraun mit feiner Schaumkrone. Interessante Röstmalznoten. Etwas rauchig im Nachtrunk.

Amber colour,, small head witih medium retention and minimum lace. Aroma of caramel and red fruits, bust mostly lime and sulphur. Medium body, with thick textures and averages carbonation. Astringent finish. Taste is somewhat medicinal, with red fruits and caramel. Sulphur. Sorry, but I can’t nothing exceptional in this one to make me repit it.

BeerRenter76 (1013) - Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Originally rated on 12/18/08. An irish red but it had a brown body? a thick tan cap that quickly disappated. Aromas and flavors of sweet malts, caramel, and a light touch of smoke, some hops made a brief apperance. Overall it was o.k., but kinda average.

GoddamnNoise (158) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - APR 29, 2017
33 cl. bottle @ Home. Aroma: yeast aromas are the most noticeable. At lower levels, there is some nuances of bread crust, caramel, bread, roasted malts, cocoa. Appearance: deep amber color with medium-to-high head thickness. Beige foam made of small-to-medium sized bubbles. No hazyness. Low-to-medium retention. Low Brussels’ lacing. Taste: medium sweetness, low bitterness, no sourness. Flavors of bread crust, caramel, burnt caramel, roasted malts, yeast, bread, cocoa, grains. Palate: light-to-medium body, watery texture, low carbonation, short quite bittersweet finish with flavors of bread crust, roasted malts, caramel, yeast, bread. Overall: pretty amber color making promises that flavor and aroma can’t keep. Not very refreshing nor pleasant. Quite simple and boring. Hops are not noticeable nor in the flavor nor in the aroma. Balance is in the malt’s sweetness side.

midovark (930) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - APR 18, 2017
On tap. Pours deep mahogany with long lasting, thick head. Nice hoppy aroma with hints of coffee and roasted malts. The same notes appear in taste, but the mouthfeel is quite watery. Short finish, light body and therefore it’s easily drinkable.
