( Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 10-2017, from Alko, 20160629) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had Belgian style yeast, grass and metal. Palate was medium bodied with rather high carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, Belgian style yeast, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. The taste was way too thin and carbonation was too high. Disappointment.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

pityu (500) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle - Slightly hazy golden colour, tall white frothy head, excellent retention and fine lacing. Herbal hoppy aromas with lot of fruity esters, some citrussy notes, yeast and hay. Taste is first a bit too sweet with some yeasty tones, but the end is roughly bitter with some herbal and grassy aftertaste. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, a bit watery mouthfeel and dry finish. Not bad, but its a bit rough, and not balanced.
