Delirium (657) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle from Lidl. Pours clear amber with no head. Aroma is bready at first, then fruity and floral. Flavor is malt backbone with sweet fruit notes, and moderate hopping, mostly vegetal. Finish is lingering bitterness along with a lingering fruit sweetness, vaguely cider-like. More of a somewhat-hoppier bitter than the IPA the label bills it as. Easily drinkable and enjoyable.

koshack (1335) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JAN 23, 2016
Piana szybko opada do kożuszka na powierzchni. Aromat bardzo przyjemny, ziołowo-kwiatowy. W drugiej nucie tropikalne owoce, lekko słodkawy zapach. W smaku niska goryczka. Dość pełne w odczuciu, ale czegoś mu brakuje. Goryczka krótka, pozostawia zbyt dużą kontrę słodową. Dużo lepiej pachnie niż smakuje.

Tognetta (717) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 11, 2015
Alaranjada levemente turva. Espuma de média formação e pouca persistência. Caramelada, pouca presença do lúpulo. Paladar de leve dulçor e amargor, sem presença. Corpo e carbonatação abaixo do esperado. Aftertaste de leve amargor e caramelado ao final, mesmas impressões do inicio. Decepcionante considerando o estilo proposto.

Gary (1871) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2015
500ml . Bright hop nose , marmalade, orange zest , and caramel. Dull brown with a subtle white head . This beer subsides into a text book ’Flat Brown Bitter ’ within seconds of pouring for all you purists. Flavours are nicely hop forward as on the nose , not that one would label this as an especially hoppy beer but is that bridge between an ESB and an IPA. a nice balance between hop aromatics and rich malts here . This is a decent beer . Nothing else should be said by anyone.
