JorgeLee (1920) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2015 Bottle in the lounge at Geneva airport, watching Flipkens-Kvitova on the tv. Came out a flattish amber brown colour. A fairly typical malty take on a lager, sweetish, hint of sugary biscuit, hops a bit flabby. I sort of vacillated between mouthfulls thinking this is quite malty and ok or this is quite crappy. Dunno. Re-rate, on tap in Zurich airport. An odd beer that I only seem to have in Swiss airports during Wimbledon! This was much nicer on tap, the metallic taste completely absent, some sweetness but nice grainy maltiness. I’d give the draft 3.2, the bottle 2.5.

Postupně sem budu doplňopvat piva, co jsem vypil a zapsal si, chvilku to asi bude trvat a proto k těm dříve vypitým pivům nebudou žádné "dojmy" .
