Koror herbaciany, drobna biała piana. Dośc szybko opada. W zapachu wyczuwalna chmielowa goryczka, biszkopty i karmel. W smaku dużo więcej goryczki i karmel. Nie jest zalegająca. Całkiem przyjemny ESB

Pleasant floral hoppy aroma with some hints of caramel. Small head disappearing to ring. Clear amber colour. Pleasant hoppy bitterness in taste with appropriate malty and caramel background.

Piwo koloru herbaty z ładną, obfita i trwałą pianą. Aromat średnio-intensywny karmelowy z delikatną nutą ziołową. W smaku wyraźnie goryczkowe (goryczka długa, pozostająca), obecny też lekki słodki karmel.

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.
