ogivlado (5791) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottled 500ml. -from random Tesco in Glasgow. Surprisingly cheap for UK occasions and yet even from the fridge (0.99 £). Dark golden coloured, small to medium off-white head, nutty caramel nose. Toasted malt, caramel and light herbal hoppy with dry bitter finish. Not bad and quite good for the price.

MarkoNm (579) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 26, 2014
Pours a coppery/golden color, topped with a slightly dirty frothy head. A mild hoppy and grassy aroma is easily picked up. Balanced body, slightly more on the bitter side. Refreshing bittery feel in the end. Crisp. Very nice.

eastkenttom (31) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2014
A good bitter. Not going to blow your skirt up, but its always cheap as chips in my local supermarket, between £1 and £1.25 usually, and great value. As good as many bottled bitters on the supermarket shelves and a good honest drink. I like it!

sebletitje (6784) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2014
Bouteille 50cl, BB 31/05/2014. Léger orangé, col fin blanc. Arôme au bouquet centré sur les malts, peu ressort en terme de houblons si ce n’est un bref houblonné citronné. Palais est malté anglais typique sur une pointe biscuitée, et un léger houblonné citronné de Fuggles voire EKG. Effervescence moyenne-haute avec une amertume basique pour ce style. Ok, mais sans plus.
