viktorvee (510) - Greater London, - NOV 18, 2013
Decent strong/best bitter. Predominant malt, a sweet touch of caramel then a drawn out bitter finish, with a fruity grape note.

MRMedellin (344) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - DEC 24, 2017
Nice clear red beer with beige and stable head. Low carbonation, at nose it has some licorice barnyard and toffee notes, in mouth has a medium body with strong roast malt flavours that mix well with the hops creating a balanced beer that fits properly in the style.

Surprisingly nice. Got it from a friend, and thought it would be too strong for me. But when I tried, I was very pleased by the fruity and malty flavor. A nice ruby pint rich and smooth, poors well a nice clarity and easy drinking.
