3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Bought at Presporska Pivoteka in Bratislava/Slovakia. This bottled bitter is excellent! Bitter, hoppy a bit, refreshing. Due to 4% abv this is a great summer beer! The finish is pleasantly bitter. The arome of floral freshness unfolds when the glass is half full. I think this bottled bitter is excellent!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500mL bottle. Poured medium orange with a quick-forming, tall beige head. The aroma picked up honey, toasted grains, and slight vegetal character with accents of grassy hops.. I did not enjoy it. The flavor found buttery bread and honeyed malts at the core with light sour fruit skins plus grassy bitterness around.. finished tangy with high carbonation and lots of residual sugars. Lighter-bodied but very full on the carbonation.. not very well balanced.. just not for me.

Bottled 500ml. -from Presporska Pivoteka ie Cafe Luxor, Bratislava. Dark golden coloured, small airy white head that went away fast, mild malty fruity nose. Sweet malty, fruity and caramel with notes of hops. Bitterish finish. Despite low abv not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle brought from Bratislava by some friends of Ogiís, who shared it with me (thanks!). Poured a lovely full, slightly hazy orangey-amber-gold body with a medium sized, slightly off white head. Soft malty nose, very light notes of orange, some graininess. The taste is somewhat empty, but generally hop driven, and the nice piney aromatic hops are certainly welcome here. Very light bready notes. All in all a very solid little bitter. Nice!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very average ale. Quite hoppy but lacks a distinctive taste and, despite being more carbonated than most bitters, leaves a rather flat taste.
