Miałem nadzieję na małą rekompensatę za poprzedni wyrób z tej "serii". I rzeczywiście była ona mała... Bo znów w szkle trunek wyglądał dobrze - ładna barwa i piana, to reszta zmysłów pozostała niepocieszona. Pachniało nieco karmelem i owocami, ale były to nuty słabo wyczuwalne. Smak też nie zachwycał - piwo było dość płytkie, a całokształt poratowały orzechy, które wyczułem. Dało to wrażenie oryginalności i nadało piwu konkretniejszego smaku. Gdyby zagrała reszta, mogłoby to być całkiem niezłe piwo!

Underdogs88 (204) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Butterscotch aroma with medium malty sweetness. Appearance is a crystal clear Amber with an off white head. Flavor is malty sweet with notes of caramel and diacetyl. Mouthfeel is medium light with medium carbonation. Overall, the diacetyl on the aroma and flavor detracts from the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

airrick2003 (586) - Louisiana, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Appearance: pours with a large to medium size head that settles into a small head, the beer is a very clear brown color Aroma: sweet caramel, hints of darker malted grain, kind of faint Taste: some caramel malt flavor and grain but a bit watered down, slightly sweet Palate: lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, syrup aftertaste Overall: while no particular aspect is great about this beer I still enjoyed it, easy drinking, mostly malt beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

barrykent (18) - POLAND - DEC 17, 2014
Barwa idealnie klarowna, miedziana, piana dość skąpa zwiazana pewnie z niewysokim nagazowaniem. W zapachu głównie nuty ziemiste i słodowo karmelowe. W smaku, dobrze pijalne, średnia goryczka, wytrawne, słodowo karmelowe, lekka ziemistość. przyzwoite.

One of the more notable things about this beer is how it looks as it's poured. A very photogenic brew! The head is thick and creamy. Tastes as good as it looks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Erzengel (4483) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2014
Nitro-keg. Cremiger, weicher Schaum. Leicht herber Antrunk. Bernstein-rötlich im Glas. Süffig-cremiger Antrunk, etwas flach, leicht säuerlich. Der Hauptteil ist leicht fruchtig-süß-säuerlich, sehr cremig. Süffig, aber malzig-komisch. Im Nachgeschmack zieht sich diese malzig-harmonische Note lange hin, vereint mit einer leichten Herbe bleibt sie lange auf der Zunge. 11/13/10/11

"smoother in the can, but it isn’t a big enough beer to avoid being dull when on nitro. a little fuller bodied in the bottle. pleasant sweet malt tones, with slight peet overtones."
