This smells sweet similarly to ESB but tastes pale and bitter. Hard to find an edge over the competition, but then, this is not worse also.

The aroma is very pilsnerish with fruit. The color is like apple juice, honey and copper golden. The taste is very pilsnerish but with notes of honey and fruit. Very spicey. Not an interesting beer but itís drinkable.

gorkogrlo (192) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours amberish orange color. Small-medium white head. Clear. It actually smell sweet, also with caramel and tobacco notes. Flavor is sweet, not so balanced. Orangy with some toast character. In aftrertaste some grassy and tobacco notes. Probably target, challangerr, northdown combination of hops or at least one of them. Overall: it is ok beer, but for my taste, missing some more british hops character.

Botle, 50cl. Pours golden, clear with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt, cereals, spices and light herbal notes. Oaky, cereals taste. Honey and some fruityness. Wet cardboard. Bitter and unpleasant aftertaste. Not really something.

50 cl. bottle. Clear, copper colour with a golden tint. Fine, thin white head. Sweet aroma with spices, light caramel malts, nuts and light herbal hops. Taste is light bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes dry and lightly bitter with fruits, light caramel malts and a spiced note. Okay, not that exciting.
