Puszka. Bursztynowy kolor piana biala mala. Aromat chmielu i cytrusow plus owoce tropikalne. W smaku podobnie dodana "citra" zapewnia cytrusowo - ananasowy posmak. Pelne o lekkiej metnawej aparycji. Chmiele plus owoce daja orzezwiajace wrazenie. Niezle

Smell is mainly sweet malts and some hops. Taste is again sweet and malty with some faint interesting hop tastes, earthy woody and a little bit of fruits. Butterscotch beer. Burp was toffee popcorn, urgh

AssKicker (182) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - APR 9, 2016
Belle couleur ambrée, carbo modérée, houblonnage tout en douceur malgré la présence de 6 variétés différentes, avec une dominante de Citra. Pas mal du tout.

Bottle, gift from Mum & Dad- cheers! Clear copper with a middling cream head and about the right amount of fizz. Light tropical fruit aroma, with pineapple to the fore. Lemon, caramel and pine on tasting, still with a little pineapple. Quite a rich, creamy mouthfeel. Generally sweet, but just the right amount of bitterness to balance. A mellow beer, with less hops and more malt influence than most in the genre - almost like a cross between an ESB and an IPA. Perfect balance though, which is more than you can say for a lot of IPAs. The real hopheads out there nay not be fans, but I enjoyed this beer a lot.

Can at Heathrow. Best by date 30/11/16. That wouldn’t be reasonable if this beer was brewed this morning, however I’d guess it’s about 4 months old today. Pity. Pours cloudy orange brown with a beige head. Aroma is missing the "intense hit of hops" that was promised on the can. It’s got some caramel, brown bread and fruity esters, though. Maybe it’s one more English Bitter before I fly home? Pretty much. There’s a bit of pine hop bitterness which is overwhelmed by fruity caramel and brown bread malts. If I were home now I would dump this in Boston Harbor.

SilkTork (5527) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2016
330ml brown glass bottle, filtered. Claims to be an American IPA. It’s more in tune with an American Pale Ale - and perhaps that’s what they meant. It’s drinkable, but it’s not Sierra Nevada.
