Radek Kliber (6681) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Where and how: b 500 ml.
Aroma typical to mainstream version of style. Somewhat sweet dusty feel with raw green bitter back up. Touch of caramel and woody green leafy touches.
Appearance :
Top: lighter, lasting fizzy at mid. Somewhat rocky at walls.
Base: fine haze on amber.
Palate : lighter carbonation, medium lighter in body. Smooth mid.
Taste: easy going ale. Mild in approach with biscuit hint and lemongrass zest.
Other notes average yet fairly drinkable per se.

AROMA: Not a lot of aroma. Mostly Malty notes, maybe some citrus notes from hops. Not much esters, maybe a little bit of dough. APPEARANCE: Crystal clear orange in color. Thin white head. Fair amount of CO2 TASTE: Light malty flavors dominate the profile, with medium bitterness in the finish. PALATE: Medium to medium-light bodied beer. Bitterness leaves the mouth dry. Finish is long with a nice malty flavor popping up at the very end. OVERALL: I have most definitely had better bitters, however this is drinkable. Just nothing to write home mom about

Clear orange amber body with a thick white head. Aroma is malt, dough, some hops. Taste is sweet with mild bitterness. Dry bitter finish. Standard stuff.

chinchill (2995) - South Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2015
500 ml bottle with a BB date of 31 March 2016. This a low priced compared to most other local beers and, unfortunately, this shows in the quality. The malt load is low for style, shifting the balance to some earthy hops. On the positive side, it’s certainly drinkable and looks OK in the glass.
