Dazka (400) - Milan, ITALY - OCT 13, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2019 Ar: toffee, malt, caramel Ap: copper, creamy head T: malty, med sweetness P: thin/med body

PlutonowyMan (1402) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2019 Kolor bursztynowy, klarowny. Piwo przykrywa bardzo wysoki, biały, spieniony puch. Długotrwała piana pozostawia sporo zdobień na szklance. Aromat: mocna, intensywna słodowość okraszona przez chmielowe nuty trawiaste, miesza się z akcentami spalonego karmelu i odrobiny toffi. Smak podobnie, karmel, słodowość, trochę toffi i może nawet nieco masła. Goryczka, hm ... no jakaś tam jest ale nic szczególnego. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego. Treściwość na poziomie średnim.

yerffoeg (459) - Dinant, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2019 Bière cuivrée très claire, simple en bouche, mais heureusement bien maltée à mon goût, et agréable au nez avec son petit côté caramélisé. Elle se boit facilement. Une bière de soirée, il ne faut pas en attendre plus.

thejackpacker (1555) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2019 Keg at Bishops Arms, Sundsvall. Surprised by this beer. Gorgeous mahogany clear colour. Creamy palate. Standard bitter taste.

borderline_alco (27) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2019 Malty aroma and taste. Toffee and raisin notes, but slightly weak flavour. Nothing too special or unique. This is a lesser brother to Old Crafty Hen, in my opinion - with lighter malts and simpler taste. It's often quite cheap in cans (8 cans for £9 in Tesco).

BeerViking (6468) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2019 Can, pours a clear amber-brown with a thin tight foam. Toasty malt on the nose, sweetish and with a light woody tang. Starts malty-sweet and toasty on the palate, then a sightly metallic bitterness plus touches of caramelised nuts and bitter orange. It's OK, but frankly it tastes a bit artificial and cheap.

Pista (17) - - JUL 29, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2019 Bottle from local supermarket. One of the most tipical British bitter. I love it :)

Monty27 (209) - GERMANY - JUL 26, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2019 Nice dense foam, sweet malty smell and taste. It has more body than the usual bitter, but it is still quite weak.

MasDen (1180) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 15, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2019 The aroma of malt, a bit caramel and flowers hops. Dark red, clear with big white head. Caramel, flowers a bit bitter in the finish. Light body, medium carbonation.

blackbock (159) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2019 (Bottle) Poured a crystal clear red amber colour. Good lacing on glass, head retention good. Aroma of fruity cake. Flavour of crystal malt and molasses. Mild bitterness. Interesting change from hipster xpa
