UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 33cl bottle courtesy of Cuso, dakujem za seriu Kalteneckera.
aroma of contained yeast, lactic acid, cheese. Finally, a EU IPA with a convincing medium-full malt body, pleasant. Dominant resiny hops with subdominant fruitier ripe grapefruit notes. Very decent, if you are not easily distracted by the off off notes.

.33l bottle, new style, found in Kosice, Slovakia. Light hazy orange, mild head, juicy soft fruit, artificial sweet citrus. Some hop juiciness. Light body but with good drying hop, quite nicely juicy, though a bit on the sickly radler end of things. Drying finish. Some nice things going on here, but not great

Yes another wonderful unfiltered brew from Slovakia. These guys are hitting the nail on the head with that. Unfiltered sends some yeas tang in with the gentle hop presence. A pleasant diacetyl slithers thru the body for a nice balance. Bottle in trade with Cuso. Alcohol is muted and well entrenced in the maltiness.
