ElDesmadre (1860) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle. Lychee, gooseberry, citrus and elderflower aroma. Fantastic. Lots of residual sweetness against which the bitterness struggles for a few sips before the whole achieves the desired balance. Nonetheless a crisp beer. Very tasty.

alberti92 (105) - - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from cellarbrations super store hami hill. Pours clear golden with a thin white head leaving some lacing. On the nose you get hints of citrus, stone fruits and grass. It's typical English style, low carbonation resulting in a very thin mouthful. It has a lingering bitter finish with lots of stone fruit notes. Quite a nice beer but It just feels and tastes a bit incomplete. If this had a bit more carbonation I think I would have enjoyed it more!

Gurthnar (2363) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Aroma hoppy, fruity, earthy. Light caramel. Clear golden to orange colour. Rather short lasting head. Taste is quite surprising with its up front hoppiness. Almost no balancing malt, which also results in a thin body. Fruity, zesty, earthy, moderate bitterness with a definite touch of sourness in the very beginning. Might just be a good beer in some way, but does not fit me at all.
