4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Lasting frothy head that cings to the inside of the glass. Light brown color, welcoming fragrance of wet mittens and high mountains. Just the right flavor of malt, dried fruit, some resin and grass. Balanced bitterness. Deep lingering aroma that even works on expanding your mind. An english bitter at its best.

Smaczny bitter, wytrawny, ciężki i gożki. Wyczuwa się pożądne nachmielenie kilkoma odmianami tej przyprawy

Great name! But this beer fails to deliver a full payload of flavor, resulting in a fairly mild beer. Nevertheless, it's slightly sweet and smooth so careful not to get bombed.

500 mL Bottle. Copper body with a thin fizzy-frothy head that settles to a wispy ring but laces the sides of the glass nicely. Aroma is sweet malt, crystal malt, treacle, molasses, and subtle hints of plums and raisins, like a good English pub ale. Very smooth in the mouth, sweet dark malts make up most of the flavor with a hint of molasses in the aftertaste and a smooth toasted malt finish. For a dark beer is is light-bodied but yet very agreeable. This is one of the smoother ones I’ve had in my mouth. At 4.4 octane it will not devastate the beer drinker but I will definitely ride this airplane again.
