ROSE1962 (162) - POLAND - JAN 28, 2016
Kolor ciemnej herbaty, piana beżowa, duże pęcherzyki i szybko opada. W aromacie nuty śliwkowe, ciasteczkowe, herbaciane. W smaku dość wytrawne, umiarkowana słodowość, lekka goryczka na finiszu. Wyczuwalne nuty ciasteczkowe, karmelowe.

Aber colour, thin head and soft carbonation. Anonymous light hoppy nose. Inoffensive light biscuit flavour without character and no bitter hit. Characterless but okay as a cold beer.

Satyroneto (263) - BRAZIL - NOV 25, 2015
5.2 ABV Cor âmbar com tons acobreados, translúcida com pouco brilho; espuma cremosa, marfim, entremeada de bolhas maiores, de baixas formação e persistência; bom lacing. Aroma de pão-doce, frutas cristalizadas, nozes, leve torrado e lúpulos terrosos. Sabor inicial de nozes e pão com final amargo terroso, seco e equilibrado com um toque de frutas cristalizadas; gole apresenta picância desde o início até o final; retrogosto persistente, maltado (pão, nozes e frutas cristalizadas) e picante com uma sensação aveludada na boca. Corpo leve e carbonatação baixa. Alta drinkability. A cerveja dá uma aula e equilíbrio e elegância.

DavidAust (145) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2015
Bottle 500ml. 5.2% Alcohol. Use by 27 Jan, 2016. Bottle different and called English Premium Bitter. Poured into a nonic pint glass. Smells like sultanas. Pours dark reddish brown (far more brown than red). Medium to heavy body. Balance of sweetness and bitterness, and heavy on the malt, not very hoppy but it is there. Can taste sultanas in a subtle way - weird huh? Good beer, had better, but this is good.
