Tap na BGM. Dość klasyczny brown ale. Sporo nut orzechów, karmelu, ciasteczek w aromacie i smaku. Przyjemny do wypicia, ale nie zachwyca w żadnym aspekcie.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
decent malty, light nutty flavored brew. Light sweet, medium body, light to medium carbonation. Not a complex one, rather drinkable, medium range dark malts toasted flavor. Light bitter. A bit sludge like texture.

Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2015. Malty and fruity smell with caramel. Similar taste. A bit onesided and not that interesting but clean.

Bottle @ ÖÖWF2015: Aroma is malty, dark caramels, slight chocolates. Taste is like the aroma but you add some raisins in there. Mid bitter ending. Pleasant!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 1/8/2015. Listed as 7% on the bottle. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light chocolate, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/piney hops and dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light chocolate/nuttiness, light citrus, pine, and herbal/floral earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/piney bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light citrus/pine, and herbal/floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt and citrus/earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Some light dryness from bitterness as well. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good American brown ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt and citrus/earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
