Piana biała, średnio pęcherzykowa. Dośc szybko opada i w małym stopniu oblepia szkło. W aromacie toffi i cytrusy. W smaku Bardziej wyczuwalne cytrusy i lekka nuta chmielowa. Pozostawia dłuższą goryczkę. Średnio mocne wysycenie. Bardzo miła kompozycja ale jak na mój gust nie wyróżnia się specjalnie w tym stylu.

ElDesmadre (1868) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle. High on toffee, coupled with apple esters and the subtle herbal presence of Bramling Cross hops. The dryness is partly evened out by the toffee, the beer is crisp, the bitterness underlined and light tart. What I particularly liked about this beer is the woody vanilla note in the finish that reminded me of whisky.
