This is a strong traditional ale with intense malt flavours and a citrus hop aroma. A very smooth beer with a well-rounded, distinctly "moreish" finish.

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle. Toasted, tea-like malts, floral-citrusy hops and fruity notes of strawberries and blueberries. Very nice aroma, slightly minty. Malty, subtly tart, dry flavour with a not too pleasant, astringent bitterness. The flavour is nowhere near as rich as the aroma.

Derbeth (367) - Kraków, POLAND - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Light amber colour, head does not last long, fair lacing. Aroma is quite intensive, with quite much honey plus toffee and a touch of herbal hops and something floral. Light sweetness, light bitterness. Medium body. I was expecting something much more bitter, but the beer is not bad and has something in its taste that is common to other Fyne Ales beers. Generally, quite ok.

Bottle from Scotia Spirit in Cologne. The beer pours out in a clear deep amber-brown colour with airy head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops, herbs and pine. Taste of fresh, bitter hops, light barley hints, citrus fruits, pine, woods, leaves and light malt. Quaffable and refreshing. Enjoyed it.
