GSE (73) - POLAND - DEC 7, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2017 [10.17 backlog z notatek] btl. bb 31.5.18. Kolor ciemnozłocisty/ miedziany. Duże wysycenie. Nuty limonki i przypieczonej skórki chleba. Raczej dużo ciała, syropowe (a może to autosugestia, bo wyczytałem, że zawiera syrop glukozowy).

Kolor: Bursztynowy, zamglony. Piana: Biała, o średniej objętości, głównie drobnopęcherzykowa, szybko redukuje się do pierścienia i cienkiego kożuszka, przyzwoity lacing. Zapach: Słodki, słodowy, sporo karmelu. Smak: Znowu słodko i słodowo, sporo karmelu, kwas chlebowy. Goryczka niska, wysycenie średnie, piwo wodniste.

Benters (96) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2017
Pours a clear amber with thin white head and average carbonation. Aroma is slightly of English hops, earthy and spicy with some caramel from the malts. Taste is well balanced, a blend of biscuity malt, spicy and earthy hops and subtle fruitiness which is slightly leaned towards the bitter side. Carbonation sparkle makes this beer very refreshing and easy drinking. A good example of an English Bitter.

Grumpelmies (398) - GERMANY - NOV 29, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 Bottle. Copper/amber with a small white head. Mild aroma of malts, caramel and british hops. Taste is rather mild: biscuits, caramel, malts and a little hint of fruitiness. Minerals. Light bitter finish. Low to medium carbonation. Thin body. It's ok.

AntonyWilson (472) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 28, 2017
500ml Bottle: Pours a clear amber with thin off-white head. Caramel aroma with a slight bready note. Flavours of caramel, toast and a slight earthy hop note as well. Medium bodied, medium to light carbonation. Bitterness is on the lighter side and the beer finishes slightly dry. Overall not bad but could be more bitter for me.

1.7
minutemat (6132) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2017
Cask pint @ The Featherbed, Shrewsbury. Pours clear amber, small off-white head. Aroma is of a nutty, lightly caramelised malt persuasion. Typically light bodied with low malt presence, very faint sweetness, very light herbal English hops with a soft bitterness. Really quite a bland beer.

ROSE1962 (322) - POLAND - NOV 27, 2017
Barwa miedziana, piwo klarowne. W aromacie słodowe, lekko karmelowe. Aromat słodkawy. Średnie nagazowanie. Wyraźna, średnia goryczka - bardzo przyjemna. W smaku słodowe, a ta słodowość świetnie równoważy się z goryczą. Jest też fajny smak chmielu. Piwo dość lekkie.
