Grumpelmies (162) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2017
Brown/copper. Small head that dissolves quickly. Aroma of nuts, toffee and british hops. Taste is nutty, malty, toffee, caramell, butterscotch and vaguely fruity. Diacetyl is present but not unpleasant. Finish is hoppy bitter. Low carbonation and smooth but kinda oily mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Nothing spectacular but I just like Fuller’s and these types of ales.

Fules (966) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JAN 10, 2017
Barnába hajló, sötétvörös szín, fél centis, de örökké tartó, bézs hab. Karamell, és fűszeres sütemények illatát érezni. Markáns, keserű, száraz, fűszeres ízvilág, enyhe gyümölcsös jegyekkel. Közepesnél gyengébb test, de könnyednek sem nevezném. Közepes szénsavtartalom, erős keserű. Nem nyűgözött le különösebben, ugyan nem esik szét, de nincs igazi összhang.

josanguapo (1313) - SPAIN - JAN 5, 2017
From Labirratorium. In Ikea’s pint glass. Reading JHTP11 Ch24. At first seems a bit flat, with just a slight nuttyness, but as warms up becomes more noticeable and better.

kapusil (1266) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 4, 2017
0.5l bottle. Crear ruby body with a beige head. Aroma of toast, caramel, a hint of butter, some roasted malts and a generous amount of floral hops. Taste of toast, roasted malts, figs and floral hops. Sweet and malty upfront, but the finish is quite bitter. Decent beer.

BelgiskOlklub (1066) - Viby J, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2016
Amber brown body and a offwhite rocky head. Aroma of roasted malt, brown sugar, caramel, pine and citrus. The taste is medium sweet and bitter, well balanced. Long light bitter finish, oily sticky texture.

kaserov (366) - Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 30, 2016
Color marrón, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media. Aroma a caramelo, nueces, frutos secos en general y dark fruits. Sabor que sigue al aroma, algo menos profundo. El aroma es un bombazo y el sabor vuelve a serlo, pero más refinado. Buen dulzor, buen regusto a nueces en la boca. Una gran cerveza de invierno. No la toméis fría.

promontor (127) - HUNGARY - DEC 17, 2016
0.5L bottle from a Spar supermarket (winter ale on winter sale ;-). Reddish brown body, beige head, quite persistent. Nice sweet aroma, caramel, some spices. Foam tastes dry and bitter. Beer is on the bitter side with some caramel and nuts. Mild roasted character detectable. Becomes quite rich and complex in the end, actually. Bitter aftertaste, with traces of some Guinness-like sour and roasted character. Palate is nice, silky, creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Typical "semi-brown" British Ale, from the better ones.

ansalon (3171) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2016
Pours brown with a low white head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, butterscotch, rye bread. Taste is caramel and toffee sweetness with light fruity notes. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation.
