Twelve ounce can. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium sized head. Loose, sudsy lacing along the glass. Aroma is malty and hoppy. Reminds me a bit of an English IPA in the nose. Flavor is nicely bitter with a good amount of maltiness.

slowrunner77 (8987) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 22, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2015 another too malty and thickish IPA - not what I’m looking for. I’ll get an english pale ale for that. Not BAD, just not good.

Radek Kliber (6895) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Where and how: can
Aroma bold yet refined with nicely rounded approach. Some late alcohol hints with balancing dryness.
Appearance :
Top: gushing white foam, rocky. Leaving lace on glass.
Base: hazy amber gold.
Palate : delicate body with longer finish.
Taste: similar to aroma. Soft refined feel with infused dose of hops. Perhaps tad too sweet to be very good.
