Marko (3771) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 18, 2014
On tap at Szimpla Kavezó. Lovely murky peachy body with a lasting white head. Dank hoppy aroma, slightly yeasty-bready, mild peachy notes. The taste... wow! Lovely, hoppy aromatics, without too much bitterness. Fruity notes dominate. Something tropical I couldn’t name - only that I’m sure that some Fanta had used that flavor at some point. Mango? Currant? Random thoughts, none seem right. But damn, this was delectable. Surprisingly lovely beer.

On tap at Élesztő Budapest. Orange coloured, small off-white head, pleasant fresh hoppy nose. Moderate malty, strong grapefruity hoppy and slight caramel with dryish bitter hoppy finish. Quite nice.

BeerEclectic (3) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 12, 2014 does not count
Bottle, picked up at Auchan just outside Budapest. A beer born in Hungary, brewed in Slovakia, as an American-style adaptation of an English ale created for transport to India. This is a pretty international little beer! And a very good one. Aroma of cereal and toast malt with grapefruit and a bit of dough. Pours cloudy golden. Nice unfiltered funk from the bottom of the bottle reminds you of its provenance as a home brew. Thin white head. Hoppy, but not overbearing, and very slightly sour to the taste. Medium bodied with gentle carbonation. Long finish. A very good beer. I’m glad I picked up a few!

Karol (507) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 6, 2014
Tapped at hostines Richtar Jakub in Bratislava. Beautiful herbal hops aroma, sweet fruits, some minor honey. Golden brown color but hazy golden when flash lighted. Stable thick head, longlasting. Taste is bitter herbel hops with an initial fruit fruitness that disappears quickly and transforms into a bitter hops finish. Overall not mind blowing but quite tasty.

Very nice well ballanced IPA. Ambet color. Head disapearing slowly. Taste hoppy, piney, strawberry. Laking a bit of a body.

Ganska pigg i doften. Frisk och blommig. Sträv beska mot slutet som hänger i och är snudd på torr. Initialt är den fin och fruktig.

Gurthnar (1247) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 21, 2014
Tap at Dobry Casy. Aroma exotic fruit salad. Pineapple, lychee, tangerine. Stable head, clear deep golden colour. Taste is initially malty, nice pronounced caramel. Bitterness is moderate (for an IPA), hops flavour goes in the same direction as aroma. Finish is dry bitter, somewhat earthy. Body is a tad bit too full, but okay. Decent IPA.
