DrD (61) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Fermented skunk cabbage. Lingering notes of furniture polish and fake lemonade. An ephemeral note of stale malt vinegar. Quite possibly the worst beer I’ve had since I swore off domestic lagers. (Of the "1 pint, 0.9 ozs," 1 pint went down the drain.)

Draftbutchers (4) - perugia, ITALY - APR 18, 2016 does not count
Caramel, toast aroma with hint of herbal and floral hops. Too much white foam , but a wonderful super clear deep amber colour Undrinkable overcarbed example... A waste of money and time. Probably too old bottle

rondphoto (3564) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 30, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of malt and seder bread. Clear bright amber brown color, smooth two-finger beige head, strips of lace. Taste is brisk malt that adds a simple jolt of carbonation on the swallow before moving smoothly through a long, lightly bittered finish. A well-balanced, easy-to-drink brew that seems lighter than 6.5% abv. Recommended.

Gerwazy (24) - Legnica, POLAND - NOV 25, 2015
Aroma: caramel malt note, a lot of english hops which I sense floral herb and baccy (US: tobacco). Fruit notes come after few second when beer warm up a little bit. Perfect for style. Apperance: amber, minimal head, tan foam. Taste: medium bitterness to high bitter. Ideal for style and me. Palate: medium body, soft carbonation, bitter. Perfect! In my opinion best beer style and this one is good flagship english hops.

rjplumer (913) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Bold caramel toffee aroma. A clear cinnamon colored body with a finger thick off-white head. A caramel toffee malt taste with some mild bitterness. Has a strong malt character yet is very drinkable.

Horo (205) - POLAND - OCT 25, 2015
zapach białej butelki, troszkę cytrusów i ziół. Kolor miedziany, piana dość obfita, ale pozostająca cienką warstwą. Trochę biszkoptowe, karmelowe i nuty kawy, goryczka bardzo wyraźna, trochę alkoholowej goryczy.

czlowiekwiadro (590) - POLAND - OCT 24, 2015
zapach delikatny, słodowy, sporo zieleni, trawy, białej butelki. odrobina cytrusów i przypraw. kolor miedziany, klarowny, lekko opalizujący. piana w kolorze złamanej bieli, dość obfita, średnio trwała, ale pozostaje cienką, dość trwałą warstwą. w smaku pełne, biszkoptowe, karmelowe, lekki popiół, pełne ale nie słodkie. goryczka bardzo wyraźna, mocna - czysta, ziołowa. lekko ogonkowe posmaki połączone z lekko alkoholową goryczą, ale nie jest to tutaj wada, a zaleta. nasycenie wysokie.

mingos (63) - Gdańsk, POLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Amber coloured clear beer with a 1 finger off white head that quickly dissipates. Yeast sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Aroma: caramel, a bit of honey, herbs, a metallic note. Sweet fruit pop up after a while. Taste: caramel, bread, hint of toastiness and a nice hoppy herbal counterpoint. Medium to strong bitterness. Medium to high carbonation, medium body. Slightly oily texture. A rather nice brew. The aroma and taste are pleasantly complex and well balanced. It would make a near perfect beer if not for the poor head appearance.

koshack (1147) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 30, 2015
Kolor ciemnego bursztynu. W aromacie lekko gorzkawe. W smaku nuty czerwonych owoców i goryczka. Przyjemy owocowy smak, plus nuta goryczki. Niskie wysycenie. Całkiem niezłe.

bedzinianin06 (380) - - SEP 8, 2015
Barwa ciemnobursztynowa. Piwo klarowne. Piana średnio obfita, średnie pęcherze - generalnie raczej średnia. W aromacie bardzo słodowe, lekko owocowe, estrowe. Wysycenie średnie, goryczka średnio wysoka, lekko łodygowa. Piwo średnio-pełne. Musowanie gazu fajnie się komponuje z lekko oleistością. W smaku słodowe. Są też nuty chmielowe, ziołowe. NIe ma nudy, ale raczej standard. Może lekko karmelowe, owocowe.
