3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 Tap (Browar de Brasil, Warsaw) (6:4:6:3+:11+=3.1++)
Deep red, I can’t see throught the bulbous glass. Fairly simple dark caramel to treacle aroma, some dustiness. Fullish in the mouth. Slightly sourish retronasals, but not off. Nice rich dark treacly taste. Fairly simple, but a solid dark lager. Possibly a little sticky in the palate and finish, as I have heavy food, that’s not helping. Slightly yeasty dark roast finish. More toasty and earthy dark grains later.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
40cl on tap at the brewpub. Very hazy caramel brown with a beige head. This one smells quite bad, I hope something went wrong with this one. Quite strange chemical aroma, lightly malty with lots of caramel. This doesn’t taste much like beer. If I knew the language I would have asked. Quite bready and watery with unpleasant aromas. Some fruity aromas appear after a while. Yeast and grain, not very drinkable. Drainpour!

From tap at the brewpub in Warsaw. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan gead. Aroma is roasted malty and breadish to caramelish. Light roasted malty and light caramelish. Sweet and toasted. No bitterness initially, slight growing towards the finish, rather malty though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The head is unrobust, the body brown and clear. It smells darkmalty, a bit hoppy-raisin and mild. The taste is roasty, a bit bitter. Drinkable but mild. 10/7/8/8/-/9

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at brewpub. Hazy copper-amber, even the color is wrong. Aroma of dull caramel. Painfully thin palate carries clean but sweet malts like supermarket biscuits. Lame kit beer. Pretty lame overall.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light brown/amber. Slight caramel nose. Toasty, and a little bit caramelly this is a kit beer made without any love and it shows.
