Poured from a 473ml can into a conical pint glass.

This beer was quite a let-down. I am very much a lover of red and amber beers, so I was expecting something good. Where to start?

This beer's appearance is a nice, dark red-brown. Head is quite tall, due to the significant carbonation, and it lasted a few minutes. Barely any scent from the head, and still not much after the head had dissipated, except for some faint metallic smell. Moderate to high carbonation level.

I can't get over the taste of this beer. The flavour is nothing special, but the aftertaste is this really off-putting metallic flavour. To be honest, it is bringing to mind the iron taste of blood, like when you bite your lip or something. Obviously not the sort of mental experience you want when you're trying to enjoy a beverage or a meal.

Definitely would not buy this beer again.

Served in a 473ml can into an English pint glass.

Appearance: Light amber color. Decent transparency. Average size head.

Smell: The smell was definitely the worst part of this beer. I can't quiet pin what it is but the IPA also carried this scent or "funk" aswell. Almost cornish maybe?

Taste: Not too bad but fairly watery. A decent session beer and could be easy to drink quiet a few. Slight caramelish taste. Not too hoppy and kind of sweet. Somewhat watery as well.

Mouth feel: Goes down somewhat smooth and not too bad feeling overall.

Overall: Not really a beer to enjoy and savor but more of a swill. I could see it being popular with party goers looking to down a couple beers that are a little better than the regular macro-lagers but honestly not really that much to offer in terms of flavor and taste. Slightly less than average for me but might be the reverse with others.
