Dudar (103) - Minsk, - JAN 2, 2012
dark amber pour with thin dense persistent head, adequate lacing. Aroma of toffee, butterscotch, hay, grass, sweet malt. Taste light caramel, nutty, pleasant hop flavour, quite bitter. Dense thick body with floral hop aftertaste, low carbonation. Not very wintery, I expected more nuttiness and spice, but a very nice drop

Of course they do fine beers. But I still wonder how they did manage again to like another one of their piwos. Fruity and fresh with some sweetish background and their own Fullers style dry finish with its big body behind. Fine one.
