jjsint (3492) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
Cask at the Manor Arms, Broughton-in-Furness. Yellow and clear. Scent of butterscotch and lemon. Bittersweet taste. Malt, golden syrup and cereal notes. Medium bittersweet palette. Not initially keen on this one, but it grows on me.

Zlotta (3820) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2015
0,5 l bottle, best before 1/2015. Got it for free as it is past its prime. Hazy, golden yellow with a foamy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sourish, fruity aroma of citrus, vanilla and toffee. Slightly bitter taste of citrus, vanilla and toffee with hints of tobacco or leather. Short, crisp, medium bitter finish. Medium body, fresh, spritzy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Refreshing, easy to drink and only 4.4 % abv: good!
