Bottled 500ml (Gastropub Nordic)
Clear deep amber color, small white head. Sweetish, caramel aroma. Medium-bodied. Grassy, fruity-sweetish malty with nice hoppy bite in the finish. Very nice malt-hop balance.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 Tap (AleHouse, Krakow) (3+:3+:3+:3-:7=1.9++)
Sour milky aroma. Rough grains. Herbal, but vegetal. Milky taste too. Rough and a bit off.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2014 Almost no head, carmine beer with an amber sheen, lazily carbonated. Parsley, bit of caramel, browning leaves, asparagus. Bitter, bitter caramel, leafy, dry. Vegetable bitterness with a vengeance in the finish. Quite slick but medium bodied at best. Maybe a tad undercarbonated. Long bitterish aftertaste. For such an unassuming, unspectacular ’style’, rather very well accomplished. Dziękuję bardzo, Aga i tatę!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle, donated by Schroppfy! Clear amber-brown colour with a red glow. Large, beige head. Intensive aroma of caramel and hops. Malty background, no sweetness here, super dry, which contrasts well with the lovely and intensive caramel and chocolate flavours. Is it a Dunkel? Is it a brwon ale? Is it an amber ale? I haven’t the faintest. A top-fermented Dunkel which ist not sweet but full of lovely hops? IPA-like hops retronasal. Very unusual, habe never come across a beer like this. Smooth carbonation. Brilliant, fantastic, superb stuff! Thank you, Michael!!!!!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2011 New rating: Much more vibrant and fresh on tap! Delicious and absolutely definitely ale-like, to dispel any doubt. Nicely hopped for a Polish beer! Up to 3.7 overall. Original in bottle = 3.3. Like a "regular" American beer! New from Browar na Jurze, intentionally toward the bitter end of the spectrum. Great bread and especially caramel malt sweetness, not too much, and real hopping levels (not Noble!). Some pine and grapefruit in the flavor. Easy to drink. Not a world killer, but if you are ale-starved like I am, this is a godsend. Normal body, normal conditioning, aroma is quite hoppy (pine, resin).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Notes of vegtables, caramel and rye bread. Finishes bitter. Quite drinkable, but there is something wrong with the balance, maybe it’s a bit to dry for it’s style? Interesting anyway.
