tomekk1978 (1314) - Z±bki, POLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Aromat: dominuje chmiel (ziołowy, herbaciany, kwiatowy i lekko perfumowany). Niewiele za nim słód (zbożowy, chlebowy, tostowy, karmelowy) estry (jabłko, gruszka, suszone owoce). Barwa złota, klarowna. Piana lekko zabarwiona, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanie obfita i podobnie trwała. Smak: dominacja chmielu (zioła, herbata, kwiaty) nad słodem (chlebowy, tostowy, prażony). Nieco mniejsze estry (jabłko) i nieco wina. Ogólnie kwaskowość przewyższająca słodycz. Goryczka umiarkowana, delikatna i krótka. Smukła pełnia, niskie wysycenie i nieco cierpkie odczucie w ustach. Sesyjny i pijalny bitter, kóry poza lekkim utlenieniem nie ma większych wad. Nie jest to jednak wybitne piwo i dla wielu może się okazać po prostu nudne.

Pretty generic bitter. Moderate malt, slightly floral, very mild bitterness. Not much else to say.

A bit of a disappointment. Lacking any complexity what so ever. Too much bitterness on the palate which overpowers any other flavour.

Medium sweet aroma - medium amber with thin white head, little carbonation. Slight fizz on tongue. Weakish thin taste - nothing special.

vinivini (1340) - BELARUS - FEB 13, 2015
Copper colour, moderate head. Aroma of caramel & toffee. Light body. A bit watery. The taste is fruity with bitter hops profile. So is the ending.

500ml bottle. 03-02-2015.
BBD: have to check the bottle, but quite fresh, brought from England by a friend.
In short: classic bitter.
Pours soe lcear amber with nice off white head, tiny but some persistant, Fruity, malty, herbal aromas. Quite british malt profiled, very classical brew, somw sweet, oily, lingering fruity notes. Enjoyable.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2014
Bouteille 50cl, merci à ma voisine. Ambré assez léger, col fin crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme reste dans une lignée très anglaise avec un côté malté légèrement grillé de Maris, un houblonné modéré fleuri noble anglais arrive en rétro. Palais a une effervescence qui est un peu trop élevée avec un accompagnement houblonné noble citronné prenant. Le tout est légèrement fleuri avec un accent anglais typique. Appréciable avec un caramel ressortant bien et procurant un ajout au niveau de la couleur.
