From a package of the Lidl. Amber, minimal head., flat beer. Aroma is sweet, some fizzling in the mouth, with minimal citrus, some artificial aroma even. Sweetish taste, alcoholic, medium body, reasonable finish. Not so good at all.

Bottle corked and caged. Poured clear copper color with an average to large fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate complex yeast and hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium yeast bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer.

Barwa ciemny bursztyn. Piana efektowna, szybko opadajaca lecz swietnie zdobi szklo. Armoat glownie slodowy alkohol lekko wyczuwalny. W smaku dominuje alkohol. Poki piwo jest zimne jest to znosne przy piwie ogrzanym ciezko to sie pije.

AGCostaNeves (63) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - APR 18, 2015
A beautiful beer! The shed this beautiful beer in his beautiful tulip stresses the eyes its coppery color, amber, followed by a beautiful white foam, high and consistent. Your delicious and sweet aroma brings a striking with caramelized toffee tones, and it could not exist, this beer brings your brand in a delicious tobacco flavor. In flavor feel its good hops employees and the smoky note back with subtlety in flavor making tasting a pleasant surprise. What perfectly accompanies this smoky flavor is the bitterness in a very correct measure. The mouthfeel is growing and we see nice notes of sweet fruits and fine touch of sugar. In the aftertaste can feel hints of almonds and a strong footprint and hot alcohol. Really tastes and sensations of this beer are unique. Fine treatment for this beautiful drink!

matis (199) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 16, 2015
Floral, grassy, ester, yeasty and lot of alcohol on nose. Soursweet taste. Firstly apples/pears (?) but then sweet caramel and bready, yeasty notes. Solid bitter aftertaste and warming. Just ordinary one, but not so bad at all.

phaleslu (7208) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2015
Draft at Yard House - Cincinnati. Pours a clear gold color with a small white head that settles into a film and laces the glass. Notes of sweet bready malts, straw, mixed fruits, light florals, resin, and esters. Medium-full bodied, with modest carbonation and a resinous, malty mouthfeel. Kind of a generic strong Belgian ale.

Bottle 33cl. Dark yellow with an orange glow. A lively white head tops it off. Great view. Aroma has mostly malts with hints of sugar and sweet fruits. The taste is mostly sweet and mildly bitter. The aftertaste is mostly accented by the warm glow of the alcohol. Good stuff!
