Caramel, fruits and grass in the aroma. Amber with a creamy white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Overall a decent bitter, but nothing more.

Aromat słodowy, lekko żywiczny, owocowy, troszkę mokry karton. Kolor bursztynowy, piana bardzo ładna, obfita, pięknie zdobi szkło, piwo klarowne. W smaku leciutka goryczka, troszkę owoców i tyle... Piwo gładkie, aksamitne, nisko wysycone, niesamowicie pijalne, pomimo niskiej goryczki - zalega. Ogólnie super pijalne piwo, super wyglądające piwo, bez smaku i bez aromatu ;D

Cask @ Sculthorpe Mill, Norfolk. Clear copper pour with a small white head. Nose and taste is light caramel malts with a light earthy hop bitterness. Soft carbonation and smooth palate. Easy to drink but somewhat unremarkable.

Ferris (5002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
Cask - Sweet caramel and malt. Clear copper with a creamy white head. Toffee and sweet sugars. Sweet and boring but drinkable.

Benzai (8986) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
Cask @ The Star, Haywards Heath. Clear rusty orange color, small off-white to beige head. Smell and taste malts, a bit fruity, lightly hops, lightly bitter. Average body and carbonation. Hmm don’t really like it.

Despite its weak scent and harsh initial taste, this ale goes down like water. I easily enjoyed 3 pints and would order it again.

kamwitsta (145) - POLAND - JUN 28, 2014
What little there is of the aroma is pleasantly sweet, honey and caramel; too bad it’s so faint. Copper-coloured with a small and not at all lasting head. Bitterness low, almost as much of honey-like sweetness. Light body, a little bit oily, average carbonation, the finish mildly bitter and short. Not bad, but not good enough to buy it again.
