Majek (361) - Ząbki, POLAND - OCT 28, 2014
Hazy, golden colour with medium stable head. Moderate aroma of citrus (grapefruit and lemon), piney and herbal with minimal malty background. Taste is light sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Long bitter finish. High carbonation. Light to medium body. Not bad stuuf, but I’ve expected much more.

Pours hazy deep dark orange. Initial carbonation but settles to a nice lacing. Aroma is citrus and apricot. Very well balanced bitterness turns to maltiness with a very nutty finish. Very very enjoyable beer!
