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.

Bamsen78 (5617) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2018
Draught @ Fox & Hounds, Sønderborg. Pours nearly clear dark amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, with notes of carmel and touches of fruit and yeast. Bitter, roasty and slightly metallic flavour, with sweetish notes of yeast, malt and caramel and hints of fruit. Bitter, hoppy aftertaste with estery notes. Nothing particularly exciting but not bad for the style.

Aroma is ok but nothing special. I really really like the red appearance. Taste is good. Good finish.

One of the worst smelling beers I've had. Perhaps a dodgy bottle but tasted relatively ok. Musty gone-off chocolate smell. Slightly better malty coffee taste but in general too biscuity for me.

BojanM (44) - Banja Luka, BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - SEP 1, 2017
Crveno-bakarna boja, zućkasta pjena koja brzo nestane. Aroma susenog voća i trava. Blago gorko, osjeti se malo na dim. Ukus ruma i duvana. Na kraju, nista posebno.

Holmen2 (4302) - NORWAY - SEP 1, 2017
Bottle shared with JMD on board Fridtjofen at Tau slipp og båtbyggeri 01.09.17. Dark copper. Pale brown head and lacing. Aroma of dried red berries. Fine taste of medium dark malt, dried red berries and noble hops. Taste is lingering on.
