MoritzF (9151) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2016
(bottle) Clear, ruby brown colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Mildly nutty and slightly bready malty aroma with notes of caramel and discreetly fruity accents. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Slightly toasted malty base with caramel, nutty hints and slightly candied fruity notes, getting a tad vinous towards the sweet and cautious bitter finish, alongside with a whiff of earthy hops. Not bad. 06.II.16

Dobry mocny bitterek. Ciemno rubinowa barwa i naprawde bardzo spora piana jak na brytyjskie Ale. Mogla by nieco dluzej sie utrzymac. Smak konkretny tresciwy i gozki rownoczesnie bardzo slodowe, bogata struktura tego Ale dac moze mieszane uczucia dla jednych bedzie bardzo gozki a dla innych bardzo slodowy. Jak dla mnie perfekcyjnie zbalansowane te dwa przeciwstawne doznania. Polecam to sprawdzic

Birra squisita, con evidenti sentori biscottati, maltati, un po’ caramellati e freschi, come di liquirizia.
