Copper in color, head not too big, nor too small. Not the most interesting of beers, but has an interesting bitter finish.

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 (1475) - 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.

Fluxing (244) - POLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Kolor bursztynowy, idealnie klarowne. Piana srednio obfita, dosc szybko opada, zostawia gruba obraczke i nie oblepia szkla. W zapachu intensywny karmel, lekki mokry karton, lekki aromat chmielowy - ziemisty, ziolowy, trawiasty i minimalnie cytrusowy. W smaku polwytrawne, karmelowe i lekko nieprzyjemnie kwasne. Goryczka niska, minimalnie sciagajaca i lekko, ale dlugo zalegajaca, aromat goryczki taki sam jak w zapachu. Odczucie w ustach prawie zerowe, moze lekko goryczkowe po kilku lykach. Wysycenie srednie.

Aroma: herbs, floral notes, some citrus. Appearance: clear amber color, poor white head. Taste: medium bitterness (herbs, pine), herbal aftertaste, some caramel, quite dry and watery. Palate: low body and medium carbonation, herbal and bitter aftertaste. Overall: Traditional English Ale with intensive herbal notes and some caramel. Quite nice.
