Royal Unibrew A/S Faxe Red American Amber/Red Lager at 5.0% ABV
Pours clear ruby red with a short pinkish head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. Nose is adjunct lager, sweet, thin, grainy, minimal hops. Taste is sweet malt and a somewhat artificial red berry flavour with a slightly metallic aftertaste. Light body, moderate sustained carbonation, and an abrupt dry finish.
Well, it’s not as horrible as I feared. In some ways it’s slightly superior to your basic adjunct lager, and in others less so. Call it a wash, and put it in the “cold and wet” category.
