Ambrata scura, schiuma bianca quasi pannosa, poco persistente. Naso: Albicocca disidratata, metallico, leggero erbaceo. Palato: nocciole, malto, lieve metallico amaro erbaceo sul finale. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata. Equilibrata.

Fashawn (353) - Montesarchio, ITALY - APR 18, 2015
Depper amber color with small White head. Aroma of caramalt and a bit of vanilla, and something that remainds a cat pee. Sweet caramel flavour,with hint of grassy, and a bit hoppiness bitter at the finish. Waterly with a soft carbonation, average beer but very sessionable i like it.

One of my first and still a Favourite, it’s nose is Exquisite rich and very hoppy, bursting with malt, I think it smell’s like a pudding. Pours a fine light copper with a moderate white fluffy head, with an overall smooth, bold glow. It’s feeling in the mouth is of full body and, with low carbonation. It’s Taste is just what I like, strong malty character, with hint’s of toffee which is slightly sweet and rather warm, with lots of Rum & Raisin, notes that fade in and out. A long spicy finish reminiscent of Cinnamon and Faint Ginger. I find this extra special with a meal, cheeses, and savoury dishes bring out more of it’s Deeper Malty character.

Better than I thought it would be, after being previously unimpressed with a bottle of Greene King’s IPA. Tastes like those beer bottle penny sweets you’d eat as a kid - and that’s not an entirely crap thing in a strange way. 6.5/10.

sucharek147 (76) - Dębica, POLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Barwa bursztynowa, piana kiepska. Aromatu praktycznie brak. Po za delikatnymi nutami słodowymi i lekkim utlenieniem nic tu nie ma. W smaku najbardziej wyraźna jest goryczka, mimo, że jest na poziomie średnio niskim. Po za tym jest to praktycznie woda.

500ml bottle. Pours dark amber with a small white head. Sweet aroma of caramel and vanilla. Taste is toffee with hoppy bitterness.

MMJL (188) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Z butelki wyraźny aromat kontynentalnego chmielu, potem owocowa słodowość, na końcu słodycz. W kolorze ciemny bursztyn / lekka miedź, jest całkowicie klarowne. Piana średniowysoka, drobna beżowa, szybko opada aż do całkowitego zaniku. Ze szkła aromat głównie jabłkowy, ale nie w takim octowym typie, tylko raczej w typie takiego czerwonego słodkiego jabłka – w miarę przyjemny. Pierwszy łyk – słodkie! Bardzo słodkie… w taki jakiś nieprzyjemny, wręcz sztuczny sposób. Goryczka w tle się pojawia nawet zauważalna, ale daleko jej do szlachetnej. Pojawiają się jakieś owocowe nuty typu suszone jabłko, wiśnia, ale nie poprawiają one wcale ogólnego wrażenia. Jest może jakaś kwaśność w posmaku. Wysycenie raczej niskie.

Bamsen78 (3955) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy rich amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and hops, with notes of yeast and fruit. Bitter, hoppy flavour with sweetish notes of fruit and malt and some minor estery and metallic touches. Lively carbonation. Bitter aftertaste. Okay but nothing very impressive.

shoestring (302) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Toffee caramel malts. A slight tinny astringent finish. Not bad for cheap beer from asda. 1.17 bottle . Burnt caramel look and slight head.
