Bottle, pours light copper with little head. Very faint hoppy aroma. Full malty fruit taste with bitter citrus aftertaste that is fairly well rounded. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Plytkie i wodniste piwo o blado zoltym kolorze z biala piana. Wyrazna goryczka w smaku z lekkim cytrusowym finiszem. Nic ciekawego

Bottled 500ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb. Shared with Marko and hrabren. Dark golden coloured, small off-white head, slightly sulphury nose. Water with notes of sulphur or similar chemical compound with touch of caramel and herbs. Something is wrong here...

hrabren (400) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 13, 2015
0.5 l bottle from Pivoteka Zagreb. Shared with Marko and Ogi. Clear golden, almost invisible off white head. Industrial malts and hops, watery. No distinct taste, no finish. Like a watered down soup cooked in dirty water or something. Terrible.

Marko (4418) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 13, 2015
Shared with Ogivlado and Hrabren. Golden body. Smells burnt... matches. Burnt hay. Something like that. Sulphury, cabbage. Oh, and malt. What the.... Burnt apple taste. Sweetish, vaguely bitter, vaguely sulphury... unappealing. Saved by a tiny touch of lemon pith. Oh great...

Bozo_skeleton (824) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 12, 2015
orange clair avec une légère carbonatation collet moyen. Aromes d’agrumes et de miel. Saveurs fruitées / fleurie se combinent assez bien. Le cote mielleux est un peu trop present.

Radek Kliber (6825) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Where and how: b 500 ml.
Aroma medium intense. Slightly peppery hop notes with toasty malts behind.
Appearance :
Top: larger, lasting creamy cap.
Base: hazy amber gold.
Palate : lighter bodied, lighter carbonation, even watery.
Taste: plain watery base with slightly toasty malts with late notion of bittering hops.
Other notes there are many more nice bitter ales that this one.

Hippoman (408) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle from Co-op, New Mills, Derbyshire. Pours pale amber with frothy white head and obvious high carbonation. Looks like a run of the mill pale lager and tastes rather like one too, IE not of a great deal. Some citrus in the finish saves it from being very forgettable.

JohnRMurdoch (3984) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 21, 2015
500ml bottle. Golden amber, big foamy head. Tropical fruit and grain aroma. Metallic oaty honey flavour. Bitter sweet aftertaste. Much better than expected.

sharkydodson (764) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - APR 21, 2015
the aroma is malty and herbal with some hints of spices... the taste is malty with notes of garden fruits and bright hoppy bitterness... dry and bitter finishing...
