KoNrRiI (694) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2015
0.5 bottle. Clear, amber color and a small, white head. Sweet aroma of flowers, caramel, toffee, butter, and fruits. Taste is also malty and sweet; once gain toffee is quite prominent, biscuits, grass, and delicate herbs. Medium body, somewhat creamy texture, and average carbonation. Finish is bitterer, also a tad more hoppy. Overall not a bad beer. The combination of malty and hoppy flavors works alright here.

MiP (14046) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle, 4.3%. Good fruity aroma, some sweet maltiness. Clear copper colour. Big stable off-white head. The flavour is fruity and creamy with a good bitterness. Distinct aroma hop in the flavour, not surprisingly English-tasting. Good mouthfeel. Very flavourful for the ABV.

thirstyrabbit (1361) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 19, 2015
Can (4.3%). Copper body, medium head. Aroma has woody English hops with charred wood. A bit watery mouthfeel. Taste has medium maltiness and woody English hops. A bit muted and powdery. Mildly resinous finish. Something powdery brings it down.

Dość ciekawym zjawiskiem jest fakt, że piwa zakupione w Lidlu o wiele lepiej prezentują się w butelce niż po przelaniu do szkła. Kiedy są jeszcze w butelce, najczęściej w jakiś sposób zdobionej, z dobrze wyglądającymi etykietami, sprawiają wrażenie naprawdę zacnych trunków. Pierwsze zdziwienie przychodzi po przelaniu do szkła, gdzie kolor już tak ładnie się nie prezentuje jak w grubszym szkle, a piany nie ma wcale. W butelce to nie problem;) ale w szklance jakoś tak... goło... Tak jest i w tym przypadku. Zapachu niestety niewiele można uświadczyć, ale brak brzydkiego aromatu jest w sumie dobrą informacją... No i smak, który także nie przyniósł żadnego uniesienia. Znów jony żelaza, ale za to goryczka wyczuwalna. I choć pozostawiała nieco nieprzyjemne odczucie w ustach, nie była zła. Ruddles County na razie wypada najlepiej z lidlowych cudeniek.

panzerwolf (167) - FINLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Pours deep copper. A toffee taste, mixture of sweet and bitter. I would call this an ok beer, but I most likely wouldn’t really buy it again. Certainly still an interesting mix of tastes.
