ogniskowicz (179) - POLAND - OCT 23, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2014 Jak miło napić się takiego piwka. Niewykręcającego mordy goryczką, za to czarującego smakiem, solidną goryczką, owocowymi aromatami, i piękną barwą. Każdy łyk to niekłamana przyjemność. Kolejne piwo od William Brothers, które bardzo trafia w mój gust i jest idealnym odpoczynkiem od triliarda ipa :) Jak zawsze u William - lekko, owocowo, goryczkowo i absolutnie niezobowiązująco. Super.
