samzim (434) - Ontario, - FEB 19, 2014
Scent of malt, toffee, and yeast. Clear copper colour. Slight sweetness at the front followed by mild bitterness. Flavours of Malt, carmel, and wine. Medium body with mild carbonation. Nothing too memorable.

copper pour with lasting finger of off white foam (4.0). Aroma is bready malt and a touch of caramel (4.0). Flavor is similar with a slight sweetness (3.75). Smooth and balanced throughout (3.75), finishes ever so slightly dry. (3.75)

midovark (1017) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - SEP 5, 2017
0.5 l can @ Mijas. Copper coloured with white head. Slight malty-biscuits aroma, followed by the same notes in taste, but quite faintly. Way too light and watery.

500ml clear bottle - present. Orange brown, beige head. Sour vegetable caramel malt aroma and flavour. Sweet metallic aftertaste. Nasty standard supermarket bitter.

5% alk. Kupljeno u Lidlu. Još jedna nezanimljiva piva. Može se popiti ali daleko od da se kaže da je ludilo.

tfontana (1038) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 12, 2017
On tap in nonic pint glass at British Beer Co. Appearance is clear amber without sparkle, finger-width creamy off-white head with fair retention and no lacing. Aroma is light fruit, grain. Taste is light fruit from the European hops, caramel malt and earth. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, soft carbonation and malty, crisp finish. Overall, representative of the style with nice mix of hop fruitiness and dryness mixed with the malts.
