5.2% version. Deep copper body, medium lasting white head. Aroma of caramel, fruity ester and earthy hoppy notes. Flavours are similar. I couldn't distinguish any particular fruits. Short caramely finish, slightly bitter and ends up dry. Ok bitter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
