Zapach z butelki: Kwiatowo-słodowy. Piana: Jasnobeżowa, drobno- i średniopęcherzykowa, dość trwała, słabo oblepia szkło. Kolor: Klarowne, ciemnobursztynowe. Zapach: Słodowo-kwiatowy, delikatne estry w typie czerwonego jabłka, gruszki. W tle owocowa kwiatowość i bardzo delikatna nuta chlebowa. Smak: Dość wytrawne, lekka karmelowa kwaśność, delikatna nuta ziemista. Sporo owoców i kwiatowości, dość intensywna nuta orzecha laskowego. Tekstura: Gładkie, o średnim ciele, lekko ściagające. Nasycenie: Średnio-wysokie. Goryczka: Trochę ponad średnią. Pijalność: Średnio-wysoka. Piwo mnie szczególnie nie oczarowało. Na pewno jest solidne, jednak w tej cenie przegrywa z wieloma. Smakowo jest to pozycja konkretniejsza, cięższa od większości bitterów bez zbytniego podkręcania ilości alkoholu. Przeszkadza trochę spore wysycenie. Wypiłem z przyjemnością, ale nie ma się w sumie czym podniecać.

Bork (170) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Softly malty beverage that at first appear fuller than it turns out to be. Pleasant mild finishing bitterness.
