mingos (51) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 30, 2015
Amber, totally clear. Large off-white head that quickly dissipates, leaving almost no lacing behind. Aroma: caramel, earthy and herbal hop notes, a tiny bit of spices. Taste: medium dry, similar to aroma; caramel base and earthy, herbal, spicy hop flavours, plus a tiny hint of iron (not in the aroma though). Medium carbonation, low-medium body, low and short bitterness. This beer is insanely drinkable. A highly recommendable bitter.

TorbenJensen (1295) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2015
Here we have a beer that is perhaps the most appropriate type that is procured among British ESBs. It has a nice thin and very creamy foam layer. The aroma of the flower, sweet berry fruits and a little spice. Gentle and complete fullness of flavor, where flowers and berries together in a finale with tasteful English hops that puts a great edge for sweetness. Long pleasant hoppy aftertaste.

Butelka, kolejna z hurtowego zakupu "Anglików" w Lidlu Srednie wysycenie i słaba, błyskawicznie znkiająca piana. Aromat słodowy, delikatny, może zbyt delikatny. W smaku bardzo neutralnie, przede wszystkim słody, trochę ziołowości, a później nadspodziewanie (po takim początku) wyraźna i całkiem przyjemna goryczka. Nic nie urywa, ale wypiłem z przyjemnością

28.06.14: Bottle 0.5 l, Lidl, Wrocław, Poland.
Bursztynowe, dość mocno nasycone piwo o puszystej, szybko redukującej się pianie. W smaku początkowo lekko słodowe z fajną, orzechową, goryczką na finiszu.
