2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mittleres Bernstein, weißer Schaum. Blumiges Malzaroma. Vollmundiger Antrunk. Sehr süß im Geschmack mit Karamell und Honig. Der wenige Hopfen kommt gegen die Süße auch nicht an. Der Alkohol schmeckt zu stark hervor und drückt die Süffigkeit.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear light amber with airy off-white head. Distinct aroma of hops with a boozy note in the ling nose. Sweetish, malty taste with bitter notes of hops and alcohol. Oily, sweetish finish. I’m not that fond of this beer style but this is one of the reasonable examples.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Sugary malt aroma, slightly bready. Really lots of (candy?) sugar. Sweet taste, syrupy texture, cloying, very thick. Evidently alcoholic, with an astringent finish. They call it a ’white porter’, well, it bears some reminiscence to a strong porter via mouthfeel but it lacks the taste and complexity. This combination of sugar and alcohol is extremely difficult to drink. I’ll pass on that.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from random supermarket in Bratislava. Dark golden color with medium white head. Aroma of sweet malt. Sweet malty taste with caramel, strong alcoholic feeling in sweet finish. Too much on sweet side for me and lack of complexity, only sweetness and alcohol.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle. Clear and filtered golden color with small almost non existing head. Nose : flowers, some honey, fruits like peach. Caramel. Some little alcohol scent. Sip : medium density body with oily texture. Good carbonation. Sweet with fruity peach flavor, some caramel and cream. Some esters. Little bitter hops on the end. The end is flower, little sour and bitter. Sweetness stays there too. The alcohol is there but not that strong. I would say it’s a good beer overall.
