Bronz színű,nem túl tömör habú főzet.Az illata mint a tavaszi virágzó mezőé.Komolyan ez jutott eszembe róla!Gyógyfüves,gyümölcsös,virágzó komlós íze van,keserédes hosszan tartó utóízzel.Ebből bármikor,bárhol,de legfőképpen társaságban beszélgetve.Nagyon finom!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours hazy copper, small off-white head, with some lacing. aroma of sweet malt, citrus hops and sour fruit. no sour fruit and little citrus in the flavor, dominated mostly by a ceramy caramel. medium bodied, with a full-mouthed creamy kind of finish. overall, too light, too creamy. i detect no hoppy citrus which was disappointing, and knocks my rating down a point or two.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
First off, the name and the bottle alone score points with me. Not exactly what I think of when I think of beer from the UK, it seemed a bit of a hybrid between what I’m used to in the States and what I get from overseas.
What I liked about this beer was the taste and the finish. Mouthfeel was fresh and crisp. Sip after sip, I expected a bitter finish, but it never came. You know the bitter was there, but it was subtle, giving it a nice drinkability.

Same bottle as in image, so presuming it was 4.5% not 5.2%
Fruity Citrus aroma. Quite sticky bitter hops. A bit drying. Fruity and sweet. Passable bitter, but too drying for the style.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Unknown if this is the 4.5 or 5.2% version, but label matches that on screen left. 500ml (?not specified) bottle. Pale amber with a fleeting head and poor lacing despite adequate and lasting carbonation. Faint lightstruck aroma, rife with green banana, pistachio, and cherry aromatics.. . lychee and orange juice in the background.Sweet/tart and brown sugar flavor also features pear, tobacco, sour apple, and bacony phenols. Despite its watery heft, the mouthfeel is slick and oily. The finish: creosote, paper, and mushy old peaches. Grassy and overly tannic aftertaste. Overall impression is of a good ESB mixed with muddy water.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bronze color with a moderate sized head that dwindles down to a ring of foam. Leaves thick lovely lacing. Nose of bread and biscuits with floral notes as well. Malty taste with a hint of fruity sweetness which segues into a dry semi-sweet finish with just a snap of hops. This is a good one.
