I'm not a big fan of this style, but this beer is good: Amber colour, good head; orange, almonds and nuts in the aroma. Th flvour is fruity, with ornage, tangerine and citrus traces. the finish is quite bitter.

Copper colour off white head Malty on the nose Nice balance beer, malts upfront but a metallic after taste The upfront flavour is a nice balanced beer it is spoilt by the metallic aftertaste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Backlog. Synchronizing with notes and Untappd.
Caramel and floral aromas supplemented by some butter. If not for the butter it would be ok, though its also very heavy on the caramel. Dont remember much more, just that the 3 bottles Ive tried were very much like that.

PL: Idealnie klarowne, miedziane piwo. W zapachu karmelowe, miodowe, przyprawowe. Orzechowe. Smak orzechowy, ziołowy. Trochę siarkowy niestety. Zbyt wysokie nagazowanie.
