3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (děkují, Cuso!): Hazy, light chestnut-amber coloured, big rocky off-white head, caramelly-toasty nose with a slight sourish fruitiness, caused by a beginning infection; light to moderste sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; the traces of infection come back in the short sweet-bitter caramelly finish. Still well drinkable brew…

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle [thanks to MisoW from Euro Swap 6] @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Hazy orangy color, medium to full sized white head that lasts for quite a while. Weird, not a beer that looks like a polotmavy to me. Aroma is a bit hard to describe. Some malts, a bit weird, a hint of vegetables. Taste malts, slightly sourish, a slight hint of fruitpeel bitter and again a bit weird. Average body, firm carbonation. Meh.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
0,33 l bottle from a trade with Cuso. Hazy copper colored body. Brief off-white head. Fruity and grassy aroma, light caramel malts in the background. Light body. Dry. More fruity than malty. Light grassy bitterness, and a certain acidity towards a bone dry finish. Drinks ok, but a suspect an ongoing infection, due to the acidity and lack of resuduial sugar.
