Gurthnar (6051) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle. Aroma lightly fruity, light chocolate, very light coffee. Clear amber to brown colour. Taste is nicely balanced, initially malty with caramel and roasted, then turns English bitter. Quite enjoyable, refreshing.

Imaena (2328) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle. This was a really disspointing bitter that was thin and boring. Nothing better than the macro bitters.

Pringao_Toribi (355) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2013
A bitter wich flavour resembles more to a brown ale, but with a strong astringent that claims its true origin.

ogivlado (7948) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottled 500ml. -at Cervecería Oldenburg-Hermana Mayor, Madrid. Clear amber coloured, small off-white head, pleasant nutty nose. Toasted malt, caramel and light nutty with notes of dried fruits in the finish. Simple and nice.

janubio (897) - SPAIN - SEP 17, 2013
500 ml. bottle. Red brown colour, with an off white head that does not last for too long. Smell of caramel, dark fruits and some unpleasant, like rotten fruits or something like that. A bit watery in the palate, with lime notes on it. Taste of caramel, dark fruits, liquorice. Not bad, but nothing really appealing.
