Estarriol (5) - - JUL 14, 2007
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Cheap in a special offer and I was hoping to find a gem but didn’t drink more than a few mouthfuls. Just not my cup of tea - thin and watery, overly bitter given its little complexity, doesn’t sit well in the stomach. Nice amber colour and acceptable nose. Processed and artifical aftertaste. Glad to have tried any beer but won’t buy again.

Bottle from Lidl English package. Amber. Almost no head. Low carbonation. Malty and sweet taste. A bit metallic finish. Short finish.

GeorgePratt (39) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2017
Pours a dark Amber with a non existent off white head which disappears very quickly. Aromas of honey, malts, oak, charcoal. Metallic tasting malt with an even more metallic finish. Poor.

john44 (1419) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle. Amber in colour. Malty; toasty malts, buttery caramel. Fruity; citrus orange. Hoppy; grassy hops. Robust malty fruity full-flavoured ale. Long bitter finish. Easy Drinking. (2014-10-21)

Marko (5269) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle, Victa Belvedere, shared with heavy. Poured a clear dark amber body wtih a white head. Mild sweetish doughy aroma, meh. Soft, flat taste, doughy maltiness, herbal, perfumey hoppiness. OK, has enough taste for 3.4%, but I see no reason to purchase a 3.4% beer for this price ever again.

ogivlado (7434) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 30, 2016
Bottled 500ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Darker golden coloured, small white to off-white head, whiff of caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, slightly herbal and nutty with rather bitter finish. Watery palate; not offensive, pleasant in a way but just watery.

josanguapo (1317) - SPAIN - DEC 18, 2016
From Costco. At lunch, with fried potatoes + fried eggs + croquettes. In Ikea’s pint glass. Full of english dry bittering hops and a smooth and creaming feeling. It’s incredible they packaged all this in such a tiny ABV!

1MrCabbage (30) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2016
29/11/16 bottle at home. Lovely old school downland bitter. Belies it's 3.4%. Bitter, chalky, gentle malts, takes well to chilling. This is close to that elusive beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cimbasso (841) - - OCT 19, 2016
Sampled from a bottle from Tesco.Good fruity, malty aroma. Colour is a rich copper with a quickly-fading white head. Good mouthfeel and a great taste of malts (not too sweet) and a a fruity, earthy hop taste. Good bitterness, producing autumn flavours in a glass. A really delicious classic bitter. Highly recommended.
