3.28/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Amber reddish color with a thin head with short retention, but leaving laces.
Fruit aroma with predominant notes of apple juice, cherries, bubblegum and caramels. Hints of guaraná powder and brown sugar.
Likewise fruity and relatively medium hoppy flavor with notes of dank herbal hops that fades later, cherries, anise, yeast, guaraná, molasses, nutty malts, butterscotch, pear, white grapes and raisins. Dry and fruity aftertaste with a medium bitterness.
Light towards medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 7.5% abv is felt, but does not bother.
Sweet fruity beer, not exceptional, but also not bad. Decent complexity, but a bit cloying sweetly.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is relatively clear reddish copper in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin film of bubbles covering the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderately strong aromas of fruity yeast are present in the nose along with some hints of caramel malts.
T: The overall taste is quite fruity like the smell but also has some notes of sweetness and hints of caramel malts.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied and slightly thin on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite drinkable for the style and completely hides any traces of alcohol. It's quite enjoyable, especially if you like aromas and flavors of fruity yeast.

500ml bottle served in a snifter. Apparent bottling date of Oct. 2011.

Poured red-amber, slightly hazy, with a small and short-lived off-white head. Smells of light, medium and caramel malts with alcohol esters and a good bit of fruitiness. These features also show up in the taste is similar, but with some balancing bitterness, less fruit and a major note of lightly roasted nuts. Lightly sweet. Near medium body is a touch watery; medium-low carbonation; semi-dry finish.

O: Caramel/malt bomb with subtle, but perhaps above average, complexity for a red ale.

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a dark caramel color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, alcohol. Taste is malty, caramel, slightly sweet, a hint of alcohol, some molasses.. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall this is a solid beer.

Copper amber but a bit of an insipid orange - not bright. It has a small off-white head soon thinning to a foamy ring & wisps.

Aroma is a simple but nice, rich raisiny grain & caremelised bread crust, dough, wood.

Taste is slightly meaty raisin & toast, a bit winy, with pleasant grain, caramel-winy character but simple, thin, a bit watery. In the end, it's quite simple, very thin, a bit rough and bland, despite som pleasant elements.

Described on the label as "Red Ale"

A: Amber orange in color with a dense, but fluffy head. Looks nice.

S: Very caramel sweet, cloyingly sweet. Bready with notes of raisin, and brown sugar. Blanketing the entire aroma is a fairly strong booze smell.

T: Booze comes out right away. Bread, caramel, and raison come through as well. Certainly a bold flavor. Some bitterness in the finish, but the booze knocks it out pretty quickly. Some floral notes.

M: The body is a lot thinner than I would like in the style. Medium to medium light in body, carbonation is light, but assertive.

O: Overall it feels a bit rough around the edges. Smoothed out and I think it would be a pretty good beer, but right now the harshness of the alcohol i a bit much for me.

poured into a pint glass:

a nice clean amber pour with a tiny amount of head which quickly disappeared. smells of fruits and nuts up front.. smells like a barleywine honestly. the taste is very boozey up front with a nutty backbone, hints of fruits and toffee. very lightly carbonated, medium bodied, surprisingly smooth for the abv, yet still warms your chest up a bit on the way down.

i picked this up because i'm originally from argentina. i had a quilmes once and it was garbage.. i read up on regia and it seemed like it wouldn't be much different, this one though - it stuck out. it wasn't bad, and it was definitely a lot better than the tasteless quilmes lager i had.

Poured into a pint glass

A: Very nice amber color, pretty clear with a little carbonation showing. Big 2 fingers worth of head that settles to a nice ring with wonderful lacing from start to finish.

S: Very malty, bready with a slightly hoppy aroma. Very Red Ale like.

T: Just like the smell with some added flavors I missed in the smell... Start is very toasted, sweet malt then a nice hint of caramel, and finishes with a light hops.

M: Medium boded with a good amount of carbonation, but smooth finish. Pretty standard for a Red Ale

O: Pretty average Red... All the right notes are hit with this one. Worth looking for.

Here is a very European red ale. It's a very clear amber color, with an off-white head. The aroma is all malt...with a touch of yeast and alcohol. Slight toast, biscuit...very sweet...almost a honey-like scent. The taste is similar. Lots of malt, balance to the sweet side with serious malt flavor. Not really roasted, but rather toasted and bread-crust. Firm mouthfeel. Again, very European in it's feel.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a clear consistency. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Average lacing.

S: A malty and slightly hoppy aroma. Nothing particularly special.

T: Tasted of malt, caramel, and light hops up front. Pretty watery in the finish. Not necessarily a bad flavor, but it's too frontloaded with all its ingredients.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Not a terrible beer, but certainly a forgettable one.

From the land of tango, it's Otro Mundo Red Ale. I was very surprised to see this at Total Wine, and at a decent price ($5.49 for a 500 ml bottle). On to the beer:

Earth red in color with a semi-creamy head with passable retention and little lace that sticks around. There's a ton of butterscotch in the nose, it exlopes on you like dynamite. Gala apple and a small whiff of booze are among the subtle aromas to the dominant one.

Otro Mundo Red took a page out of the ESB style and multiplied that page tenfold. The ESB's calling card is often a mild diacetyl/butterscotch note, and what we have here is a VERY intense amount of butterscotch. There isn't much in complexity, only a little bit of light esters, otherwise this is a one trick pony. For the first half of the bottle, it worked just fine. But then the buttersctoch becomes nausiating. It's moderately carbonated with a medium and somewhat boozy body.

Too one dimensional for me, and even though I can appreaciate diacetyl, the intensity became overwhelming. It was a fun ride the first 8 ounces, but then I was ready to move on.
