Grzesiek79 (3181) - Radom, POLAND - APR 9, 2013
Dobry Bitter, z lekkim metnym osadem, wielka i trzymajaca sie sporo czasu piana, spore nagazowanie jak na brytyjskie piwo. Chmielowe nuty sa wyrazne w zapachu, w smaku dominuje takze zywiczny posmak chmieli. Najlepsze ekologiczne surowce. Real Ale from Camra. Polecam te angielska klasyke.
