czlowiekwiadro (987) - POLAND - JAN 1, 2015
lekki zapach, zioła i trochę jakby zielona butelka, lekko słodowy, może miód. dość ładna piana która całkiem długo się utrzymuje i ładnie oblepia szkło. kolor słomkowy, jasny, dość zmętniony, ale przejrzysty. w smaku dość wodniste i wytrawne, bardzo lekkie, dominuje ziołowa goryczka która sama w sobie nie jest wysoka. mocny, żelazisty posmak. piwo dobre, ale bardzo cienkie.
