Estery aroma with notes of bread and dark fruit. Cloudy brown in the glass with beautiful off head. Taste of dried fruits and hints of caramel. Little bit watery. Nothing special.

Can 0,44 l (Draught), Lidl, Wrocław, Poland.
Kasztanowe piwo z gęstą i puszystą pianą oraz delikatnym, drewnianym aromatem. W smaku łagodne, kremowe i gładkie z przyjemną goryczką na finiszu.

I drink this beer at some oportunities in the harper’s pub in Lausanne. It is not the greatest beer, I like the color red and the foam white and creamy, watery, malt, few hop, an irish ale from macrobrewery, ok.

Kampfar (163) - Münster, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2016
From 0.33 L bottle clear, dark red to amber coloured with an off-white head. Aroma is heavy malty, but also grassy and herbal. Taste is malty and slightly hoppy. Medium bitter and slightly alcoholic, long finish, slightly watery mouthfeel. Light to medium body with average carbonation.

Light malty aroma and some caramel.It might be stronger.Almost red, fantastic, creamy head. Taste is watery, but the texture is so smooth. Again, a bit of caramel and malty hints.. Low bitterness. Very drinkable. Nothing special at all, I expected more.

Irish ale od Guinnessa ze słynna kulką wypełnioną azotem. Po otwarciu charakterystyczny syk, piwo się bardzo ładnie pieni i na powierzchni w kolorze coli, pojawia się puszysta, kremowa piana. Aromat przyjemny, karmelowy, herbatnikowy. Pierwszy łyk gładko przechodzi przez przełyk, czuć aksamitną fakturę piwa. Nieco wodniste, z posmakiem karmelowym i lekką goryczką. Niezobowiązujące, przyjemne piwo.

Demens (262) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 6, 2016
0,33l bottle. Clear deep copper colour with quickly disappearing of-white head. Aroma: Caramel, basement aromas, bit funky. Taste: Sweet sour start with a very light bitter tone and with a strong lemon like sour mouthfeel. Not bad but nothing special, quite average. Light body with fizzy carbonation. Short bitter/sour finish. Needs some stuff becouse it’s a bit light.

0.565 l can as a gift. I had this one before joining RateBeer, therefore this entry is based on numerical notes only.
