Eckato (147) - Gulfport, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Poured and opaque reddish orange with a large white head. Aroma was a tad metallic and tasted malty (which I like). This is a decent English Ale, not super bitter, and has the makings for a long night if one had six more of these. Nothing great...but would never say no.

Senka (502) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 10, 2014
50cl bottle. Served at 10degC. Pours clear brown, with velvet head. Some oak and corn aromas. Light-medium bodied with soft carbonation. Easy bitter finish. Not exactly strong ale - rather well made bitter.

W aromacie Hen’s Tooth można wyczuć nuty słodowe, karmelowe, ciastek nadziewanych lejącym się kremem z zawartością alkoholu. To ostanie wrażenie także pozostaje mi ze smaku tego piwa oraz do tego dochodzę również posmaki karmelu oraz mniej przyjemna lekko alkoholowa goryczka. Z wyglądu w tej przezroczystej butelce przypomina whiskey z delikatną, szybko redukującą się pianą. Ponadto ten trunek jest dość mocno gazowany oraz powoduje lekkie rozgrzanie alkoholowe, które nie dziwi biorąc pod uwagę zawartość procentów 6,5.

Bottle from Lidl poured into glass tankard. Beautiful dark amber color. Large head diminishing at medium speed. Strong aroma of malt. Taste is quite bitter. Very good ale.

pomko (200) - UKRAINE - JUL 11, 2014
Light cloudy deep amber colour with low creamy head and medium to smooth body. Nose of malt and barley. Taste of mild spicy hops, malt, strong alcohol, sour milk, orange juice and grass. Easy to drink, but not as nice as expected

Derbeth (341) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber colour, quickly diminishing head, virtually no lacing. Aroma is wood, caramel, alcohol, a bit of prune. Medium bitterness. Full body, fizzy carbonation. Quite similar to Belgian strong ales. Quite ok.
