Cor acobreada, brilhante. Espuma boa e persistente. Aroma malte e cereais. No paladar caramelo se contrapondo ao amargor presente. Corpo leve. Retrogosto amargo.

glacier (17) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Dość gorzkie, ale nie goryczkowe(troszkę goryczka herbaciana). Złoty kolor, piana minimalna. Dobry Bitter, godny spróbowania.

Grisza77 (107) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bursztynowe, klarowne piwo o słabej pianie, która szybko znika do zera. Aromat przyjemny owocowy, karmelowy z ość wyraźnie wyczuwalnym chmielem. W smaku karmelowe i lekko chmielowe. Goryczka niska, piwo wodniste. Ogólnie dość udane piwo, gdyby tylko w smaku było trochę więcej chmielu i goryczka była by wyższa to byłoby naprawdę dobrze.

ogniskowicz (439) - POLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Aromat raczej stonowany - ciasteczkowość i owocowe nuty chmielu. W smaku lekko i wytrawnie, wręcz momentami wodniście, ale z dobrze ułożoną, przyjemną, lekko herbacianą goryczką. Absolutnie przyjemne piwo, choć wielkich doznań oczywiście nie gwarantuje ;)

Amber coloured beer with pretty durable head. Aroma dominated by fruits. You can smell caramel and malts too. Taste is sweet, grassy with nice hoppy finish. Decent beer.

Pours a nice Amber colour. Aromas are slightly fruity and mostly malty. Not too interesting...but quaffable enough.

bobroman (651) - Torun, POLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Not very intensive aroma of malts and spicy hops. Small but very durable head. Clear amber body. Small bitterness in taste with hints of nuts and herbs. Not very pleasant aftertaste. Interesting but not very enjoyable for me.
