Bottle from Auchan Market, Luxembourg City!
The beer in the glass is light copper colored with a flat head. It smells malty, bitter, grainy, caramelly-sweet, subtle sugary. Starts very caramelly, subtly sweet, very malty, spicy and slightly hoppy in the background. The middle part is caramelly-sweet, malty-bitter with some aroma hops. Goes into a caramel-malty finish, well balanced sweet and bitter, with a nutty flavor in the background.

Beerheart65 (1418) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2013
Nice clear deep amber with lots of head that is bit foamy creamy and off-white, stays long and leaves good lacing. Bit roasted malting has caramel and nutty notes, dark bread also, grain. Lots of taste, malty, dry, slightly bitter, medium body and medium thick feel, long tasty finish, low carbonation. Your basic tasty english bitter, I like it.
