WOB, Coconut Creek, FL. Okay, I'm 3 beers beyond what I was going to drink so my judgement might be fading a bit. Thank god for auto spell or this might be unreadable. Nice beer, a bit more malty than I expected, but adequate hops to handle it. A little bitter on the finish, but over all enjoyed it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours pale amber colour with a small and quickly fading head. Aroma of bread, some caramel and herbs, rather poor intensity. The taste is based on caramel and bread notes with a touch of herbal bitterness but again the intensity is disappointing. I didn’t expect much from this one and received even less.

Bursztynowa, klarowna barwa, biała piana niezbyt wysoka, znika w miarę szybko, ale pozostawia obrączkę. Aromat karmelu, ziół, świeżych owoców. W smaku ziołowość dopełniona wyraźną chlebowością i karmelem, balans nieco bardziej w stronę słodowości przesunięty, jednak nuty ziołowe i owocowe są obecne. Goryczka obecna, na średnim poziomie. Piwo sprawia wrażenie dość treściwego, przy niezbyt wysokim nasyceniu jest też jednak przyzwoicie pijalne. Pozostawia całkiem miłe wspomnienia.

Piwo klarowne. Świetna barwa - bursztynowa, miedziana. Piana raczej obfita. W aromacie słodowe, troszkę ziołowe, chmielowe. Słodki. Trochę czerwonych owoców (truskawki itd.). W smaku słodkie, ale dominują nuty ziołowe. Jest wrażenie pełni piwa. Oprócz słodu również owoce. Wysycenie średnie. Goryczka średnia.

W aromacie trochę owoców, trochę chleba i trochę alkoholu. W smaku ten mix już trochę bardziej drażniący. Średnio.

Clear amber, medium but lasting head, some lacing. Some malty, caramel and herbal notes in aroma and taste. A bit of hops on finish, medium carbonation. Drinkable brew. Really good.

Przeciętne do potęgi, ale smaczne piwo. Jest trochę jabłek i karmelu w aromacie, jest ziołowość chmielu, jest lekka goryczka. Pije się przyjemnie i dość szybko zapomina.

Not very intensive aroma of ripe fruits and some caramel. Small head disappearing to ring. Clear amber colour. A bit watery taste with some maltiness, caramel and herbal bitterness.

Rojiza parda, color de red ale. Escasa espuma y fuerte aroma a malta. Sabrosa en boca, bastante carbonica. Cafe, frutas rojas y sobre todo malta tostada. Equilibrada y agradable.
