kamwitsta (137) - POLAND - JUL 1, 2014
The aroma has some caramel and fruits in it, but also not a small amount of metal and alcohol. The colour of fairly strong tea, almost clear, forms a big head at first but after a moment it?s all gone. The taste is a combination of sweet, sour, a little spicy alcohol, and a bit bitter. Body below medium, feels foamy, low carbonation, tart and sour finish. Not too bad, not too good, I like it more than I dislike it.
