3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask HP at Hamilton Hall London as íRingwood Old Thumperí, 5.1%. Supreme champion beer of Britain the year I was born. Translucent amber orange, still, very little head. Aroma is toffee apple, honey, sugary, malts. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is fudgey, biscuity malt, hobnobs, smooth buttercandy with some resin in the finish. For the style, excellent. Sweet and luxurious without coming close to cloying. I went back for a second half, which admittedly I didnít enjoy as much. Still, a recommended beer.

Pours the colour of burnt golden syrup without much head but with some malt and banana on the nose. Sweet and malty to taste with a gentle but all-encompassing bitterness. Some fruity notes and just a touch of sherry too which complement the other flavours, but just a touch watery and flat.

Draught, pint. With crisp aromas, its golden orange colour is appetising, together with its mostly lasting, thick tan head. Nice malty flavours, becoming more toasted through the finish, caramel and a subtle touch of hops. Oily, but slightly creamy too. Long finish. No complaints.

Bursztynowe piwo z puszystą I trwałą ale niezbyt obfitą pianą oraz słodowym aromatem. W smaku gęste, lekko słodowe i łagodnie karmelowe.
