Fluxing (455) - POLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Z pompy, One Eyed Rat, Ripon. Kolor ciemnozloty, klarowne. Piana niska, bardzo gesta, powoli opada, zostawia gruba obraczke i srednio oblepia szklo. W aromacie troche slodu i karmelu, lekkie ziola, mieta, trawa, lodygi, minimalne slodkie owoce, ogolnie aromat przyjemny, ale malo intensywny. W smaku lekko slodowe i zbozowe, minimalnie karmelowe, lekko kwasne, troche owocowych estrow, w tym wyrazne jablko. W odczuciu polwytrawne, gladkie, lekko wodniste. Wysycenie srednie w strone wysokiego, nie przeszkadza, przyjemnie musuje. Goryczka wysoka, piwo wydaje sie na poczatku niezbalansowane a goryczka zbyt drapiaca, jednak w miare ogrzewania staje sie ona gladsza, wychodza owocowe estry i aromaty chmielowe (w tym bardzo wyrazny grejpfrut i gorzkie pomarancze, ktorych w zapachu nie bylo), a przez to znacznie wzrasta pijalnosc.
