Bottle at home. Decent bottled bitter but not a stand-out. I was slightly disappointed - but maybe I’m beginning to get picky

Ok, not Hops at all. All Little bit malt. But nothing Special. The Wood is not in the Aroma! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Some confusion here. Ratebeer has this at 5% not 4.5% which is what it is. A perfectly enjoyable, inoffensive pale ale slightly lacking in oomph, but goes down nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SangreSani (390) - Głowienka, POLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Dark golden color, small head. Sparkling clear. Great lacing. Very light aroma, some cooked vegetables and rag. Very sweet, almost not bitter. Some caramel in flavor. Taste completely not in style. Medium to full body, very smooth.

Bottle 50cl. ABV 4,5. Big cream colored head, dark golden color, slow small bubbles. Aroma is wood, caramel, leaves. Hint of rainwater and cinnamon. Taste is some bitter of leaves from the english countryside.

jamaty (1731) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Ingredientes naturales y agua de manantial. Cobriza. Poca espuma. Aroma no muy marcado, pero agradable, malteado y dulce, con trazas herbales. Pero de muy buen sabor, con equilibrio constante hasta el final. Tras entrada amarga sale a relucir toda la malta acaramelada para acabar de nuevo en un amargor herbal y algo especiado. Refrescante y bebible.

janubio (607) - SPAIN - MAY 28, 2015
Copper colour, two fingers head that domes down soon, but leaving lace and ring. Aroma of butter, grass, caramel. Classic limestone flavour of Burton, medium body, rough palate. Taste of butter, butter cookies, flowers, spices. Really good.

ContemplateBeer (1917) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Finally bought a bottle only to find out the beer has been retired since 2013... well then! No bottling date, so that wouldn’t have tipped me off, either. Aroma: Biscuit and moderate caramel with light honey and spicy wood. Appearance: Rich, translucent copper pour with a foamy tan head that fades into a sticky skin. Flavor: Nice melding of caramel biscuit and woody spice throughout, leading to a fairly dry, lightly bitter finish. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Probably somewhat removed from what the brewer intended at this point, but still a solid ale. Wish I could have tried this fresh.

The aroma has hints of the draught version, but this seems over carbonated and thinner than the pints of it I have enjoyed in the past.

Intriguing aroma - woody and grassy. Reminiscent of carbonated piss in appearance but not too offensive. The pleasant aroma is drawing me in as I take a taster sip. Immediately I get cereal, apple, wood and grass tones balanced with tangy lemon. Moderate fizz. Sharp texture then smooth and comforting. Enjoyable experience.
