Pours un unpleasant murky brown. Looks flat. It’s not. The carbo is actually quite present although subtle. Aroma is all oranges and grapefruit, the wife says cut grass. Taste is rich, thick and sweet up front with tangy grapefruit the star. Bitterness is there as well and lingers well beyond the sweetness although the sugar rests on the lips. Full-bodied beer packed with punchy flavours. Shame it looks like mud but I can forgive that. Very good.

bobroman (439) - Torun, POLAND - OCT 10, 2014
Intensive fruity aroma of plums mixed with malts and spices. Medium, off-white head disappearing to durable layer with great lacing. Hazy dark brown colour. Thick body with great malty sweetness in taste backed up by well-balanced alcoholic bitterness. Delicious malty liqour with long and a bit alcoholic but pleasant aftertaste.

Hazy dirty golden, soft ringed head. Bright dusty gummy and light spiced malt. Initial taste is fairly keen lemon, varnish and soft toffee. Burnt sugar and boozey towards the finish. Bright sting to the mouthfeel.

330ml bottle, thanks to Benzai! Pours hazy amber with off-white head and yeast in suspension. Big tropical resin aroma.. taste is mango & pineapple yoghurt, caramel and clean malts. A touch sticky, but to be expected really. Delicious stuff.

On tap at De Molen. Murky amber with a dluffy creamy head. Mute soury aroma, rather dull... but extremely pilowy fluffy taste character. Great draught beer.
