Can from Asian grocery store in Bratislava. Dark golden color with medium white cascade head. Bready yeasty aroma together with malt and some fruitiness. Taste is watery almost tasteless, with light bitterness in background. Bitter without enough bitterness.

Draught (nitro keg) @ Jury’s Inn hotel pub. Rated on 27.11.2012
Aroma has hay , grainy malt and hints of fruits. Flavour is odd with metal, gooseberry bush and some bun dough. Feels kind of harsh belgian witbier. Too harsh, gets better towards the end of the pint though.

Draught. Pours a clear golden color with a moderate white head. WAY too sweet of a nose on this, which I found odd. Taste was about what I expected, bitter and somewhat dry. Meh.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A modified rating from the old days:
Small to medium creamy white head on top of a clear yellow golden colored beer.
Smell isn’t that present, pretty weak and just some malty grains and ligh grainy hop notes.
The taste is a bit more there than the smell: malts, grains, (floral) hop notes and some herbs.
Thin and weak beer but strangely not really bad.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap with a carvery at Chateau Impney, Droitwich, as the only bitter they had available. ’Bitter’ is stretching a point though as this was lacking bitterness, sweetness or indeed any other flavour. Smells faintly of ’beer’ - just beer, nothing else. Creamy and very pleasant in the mouthfeel but with absolutely no reward for the tastebuds. The fact this was the ’Extra Cold’ variety further extinguished any hint of a taste.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap - a dull looking beer, a bit on the bland side in aroma, but with a metallic peppery bite in taste. A bit mixed, but not offensive.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
440ml Can with cardonation widget. Aroma- there is very little but what there is is toffee. Appearance is the best (only good) thing about this beer. It pours a lasting off white creamy head over a light honey coloured beer. Taster is a creamy honey and toffee bitter with little or no lasting memory on the palate. Again not a brilliant beer with a widget in it

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours dark amber with a very small white head.
Restrained aroma but includes honey, toffee and faint herbal hops.
Similar flavours, very restrained, but a bit of honey and faint cardboard is noticeable.
Watery body. Needs more carbonation.
