smell of yeast and hops; amber with a creamy, long-lasting head; disappointing, watery taste

Sabor muy tipico de las ale britanicas, malteada y com cuerpo medio, algo de fruta madura

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2017 Light toffee aroma. Clear brown, medium fine white head. Light to medium bitterness, light sweetness. Thin body, bitterness lingers aftertaste.

Pours amber red with average head that leaves bit of lacing behind. Aroma is plum, raisin, raisins and sweet grain. Taste is sweet malts, dark fruits and a creaminess. Finishes fairly blandly.

Boca 0,5L - naravno iz Lidla, mislim da mi je ovo prvi bitter tako da ne znam šta napisati..

Clear amber color, medium beige head. Aroma hops and caramel. Taste bitter with fruity and caramel notes. One of my favourite English bitters from Lidl.

Nice amber color with small white head. Malt aroma with some fruity notes. Sweet taste. Quite OK beer.

nephirem (540) - CROATIA - MAY 31, 2017
Bottle, 0.5l. Clear copper pour with two finger white head, produced by reckless and violent pour. Surprisingly decent retention. A bit peppery on the nose, some earthy hops, a bit of cardboard. Thin to medium body. Regular carbonation, slightly prickly. Texture is somewhat thick. As expected, taste is mostly bitter. Aroma a bit grainy, a bit of cardboard. Hops, earthy and grassy. Peppery. Lots of metallic acidity, mostly in the aftertaste. Slightly unpleasant, especially when it warms up. Overall, quite a mediocre effort. Drinkable when served cold, but otherwise... meh.
