COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Fruity, warm aroma of biscuits and bakery. Looks like a foamy pilsner, complex alcohol-intensive taste with vinous fruity and dry overtones. Changes during the tasting experience - fruity at the onset and more alcohol after a while. A certified classic.

Bottle. Poured a warm gold, with white fully head. Boozy aromas of wheat, stone fruit and malt. Smooth as all get out. Boozy flavours, but good stuff. Mellow and supple and lovely.

Smak: Kwiatowe, lekko słodkie ale z wytrawnym finiszem. Brzoskwinia, pomarańcza, lekka ziołowa goryczka z alkoholowym posmakiem.
Odczucie: Wytrawne, wysoko nasycone CO2
Całość: Klasyczny golden ale, bardzo dobry, zdradliwie pijalny.

adamnowek (149) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2014
Extremely carbonated, but it doesn’t detract. The booze is well-hidden. Very large and long-lasting white head. Fruity and earthy in smell and in taste.
