Cask. Very light amber/gold. Smell and taste are pure banana bread. I love it, but I wonder if this is intended or whether it was just something with this batch.

fantti (943) - FINLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Riiliversio reitattu. Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, vaahto on säilyvä. Haju on vahvan trooppisen hedelmäinen, ruohoinen sekä hieman karamellinen. Maku on hedelmäinen (päärynä, passion), ruohoinen ja hieman pähkinäinen. Suutuntuma on on katkera, mutta muuten suht ohut. Kokonaisuutena ensimmäinen kosketus riiliin oli mukavan hedelmäinen, runko tosin oli hieman ohut.

Świetne piwo. Żadko spotykane u Anglików, a mianowicie mętność piwa, oraz niewielki osad w butelce, co świadczy o braku filtracjii. Piana kożuchowa. Aromat cytrusowy, a w smaku kwaskowaty posmak cytryny i grapefruita. Wyczuwam sporo odmian chmielu. Dla mnie to piwo jest jak IPA
