Zavaros aranyszínű ízében az IPA-kra és a zwickl-re (ez utóbbira a színében is) emlékeztető sör, valahol a kettő közé tenném.

Bottle from Hungary courtesy of my friend Laszlo! Cheers! Pours a golden yellow, fairly cloudy, massive white head, very fizzy. Aroma: Very hoppy and spicy. Hints of banana, coriander, nutmeg. Palate: medium bodied, very very creamy and smooth start, almost syrupy. It then rapidly moves to a spicy dry finish. Taste: starts off sweet, very quickly becomes bitter as it gets dry. The aftertaste is long and lingering, but becomes sweeter in the end. A very interesting beer.

In bottle, thanks Sev. Pours a blonde colour with a decent white head. Aroma of honey, black pepper, musty yeast, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

Light body, easy to slip, I do not like Spalter hops, little fragrance, fine in the beginning, but the end is missing. By the way, this is one of the best lager in the country.

Great example of Hungarian craft brewing on the up. Great session beer. My friend had a keg at his wedding reception. Similar to a light pale ale you’d find in the states. Tasty and good hop balance.

The beer is unfiltered living matter: both sight and taste is always changing, evolving. A lot of fresh unfiltered beer yeast is floating, her body almost bite, bitterness vibrant. The bottom of the barrel sits in the yeast over time, and this process is almost the end of the unfiltered beer mirror tisztaságúvá become - along with the taste is simogatóbb, will be stripped. A Bitter Honey unpasteurized beer, preservatives, shelf life, instead of a high degree of alcohol and hops gives antiseptic. Szűretlensége and pasztörizálatlansága not only incredibly ízessé, but also makes it very healthy. In this line, everything is there, which is the world’s most popular drink of his beer.

300ml draught and later a 500ml bottle, 6.0% abv, both at and from Cheers Drinkbar. At the bar the beer was presented as an IPA. Cool label design to the bottled version. Fluffy white head, unclear golden body, fragile lacing. Fresh fruity aroma, lightly spiced. The flavour is also very fresh with fruity hops bringing hints of grapefruits and oranges and hints of smooth honey sweetness. Mild bitter citrus shells to the finish. Soft in the mouth. Very pleasing (Budapest, 31.07.2012).
