3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A great take on a typical British bitter. Verging on too much taste or strength - but luckily well balanced. Suitable for a session.

Pours copper with great white head. Finally Pinta came back to their good head production, which used to be their trademark in the past. A bit of butter in the aroma, some booze in the taste. High carbonation, some dough, but quite hoppy. Uneven beer.

Crystal amber body with medium beige head. Sweet and floral aroma with fruity background. Taste is also sweet and floral but at the start. Then goes into medium bitter finish, which stays long. Well balanced and drinkable, but has too much floral sweetness over maltiness.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of malt, cookies, butter and hops. Great appearance - cristal brown with browny creamy head with lasts with you to the last sip. Taste - a little too malty for the esb, toasty and again buttery. The level of diacethyl is at bay though, acceptable in British styles at this amount. Carbonation is perfect - the bubbles are amooth, little and do not vanish too quickly. The finish is bitter and malty. Good one. Not for the session, but will make you feel good.

500ml bottle (Małe Piwo, Warsaw) - Shared by Samsung - thanks Marek!
Sticky, stodgy malty aroma, a bit brown. Very nice ESB clone, but maybe a bit too slick and sweet. Finiss brown and brackeny, almost undergrowthy. Dry and long. Good strong bitter, but no match for the original ESB.

50cl bottle from The Beer Store, Warszawa. Pours clear deep amber with an off-white head. Malty and caramelly aroma with hops and notes of fruits. Moderate sweet and malty with a dry and quite hoppy and bitter finish. Bitter aftertaste with spices and hints of citrus. Certainly a decent bitter.
