This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a strongly carbonated transparent dark orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was musty and mild wheat. The thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of bitter mild rye mild wheat and bread dough. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Doesn’t assault the palate the way some of my favorite beers do, but the quality of the craft here-beginning with the selection of ingredients-makes this a special beer.

minutemat (3744) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2015
500ml bottle from Sainsburys, as part of my phase of revisiting classic English ales. Pours amber. Nice peppery hops, light earthy malts. Standard old school pale, but rather uninspiring.

drpimento (2892) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Very nice. Aroma is toffee, grain, fresh ale, malt. Flavor is a splendid blend of the nose qualities, bitter, sweet, tang, burnt sugar. Fairly long finish with the burnt sugar and bitter. Even with this abv, still a little warmth.

Kauge (1325) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2015
Bottle, shared. Clear darkish amber, brief off-white head. Earthy, caramelly, fruity aroma. Sweet fruity flavour and full mouthfeel with mellow-prickly carbonation. Almost sticky sweet, but pleasantly so. Excellent balance, excellent drinkability. Very nice!

Pale amber. Medium head with very fine bubbles. Malty, jammy aroma. Medium sweet. Prickly, acidic finish. Good flavor.

panzerwolf (249) - FINLAND - NOV 14, 2015
Very much floral, earthy notes. Herbs and a mild, herbal bitterness that fades away slowly. Taste of wood and hay towards the end. A very full and pleasant bitter!

Solid bitter. Malty, earthy, floral... just a bit of bitterness. Really quaffable.

Bursztynowe o sporej bialej pianie. Wyrazna nuta chmielu ale takze wyczuwalne orzechy i cytrusy.
