Burton Unio System, czy to sie zauwaza. Wyglad slaby miedziany do jasno bursztynowego, mala piana i znika szybko. Zapach moreli suszonej. W smaku karmelowe, tosty, troche na poczatku gorycz sie zaznacza ale zbytnio sie nie utrwala, splywa wszystko. Po jakims czasie sprawia piwa robionego na szybko w pospiechu i wodniestego. Czyli dobry poczatek z kiepskim finiszem. Tradycyjny 5 procentowy Pedigree juz nie produkowany sporo, sporo byl lepszy.

GoufCustom (2081) - HONG KONG - SEP 21, 2017

500 ml bottle as "Marston's Pedigree Amber Ale" bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Looks: Clear amber copperThree and a half finger head with crumpety off-white foam which lasts for 4 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant Amber malt, with strong caramel, strong sticky toffee, fresh toast, red fruits, floral, icing sugar, spices, thick bread, light lemon and grass.

Taste: Medium sweet Amber malt, with metallic, caramel, toffee, strong red fruits, floral, molasses, spices, earth, bread, lemon, mid to strong bitter hops and grass.

Body: Close to medium body. Quite slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Solid Amber maltyness in a smooth background. Metallic aside it's fulfilling with caramel, toffee and red fruits. Flowery with medium sweetness. Spicy earthy biscuity with strogn lemon to round. Simple but very nice!

Hoppiness: Floral, spices, light lemon and grass in nose. Same in taste but stronger and with earth; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, close to high astringent sweet bitter caramel malty finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Red fruity spicy and bitter to mouth.

Comments: Not sure about the low score, but this one is simple but solid and excel in what it has - fragrant malty aroma and taste of abundant caramel and red fruits, spice earthy hop and good strong lemony bitterness, and that metallic mineral taste is a bonus, a nice extra dimension for enjoyment. Great Summer beer and will buy again!

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2017 Zakupione jako Amber Ale. Piwo jasne, klarowne pianka szybko znika. Aromat lakieru. Smak trochę kartonowy, mocno słodowy i ogólnie bez ciała. Jednynie średnia goryczka wyróżnia to piwo od zwykłego lagera. To piwo jest po prostu złe. Dodatkowo wątpliwości budzi to, że etykieta sugeruje Amber Ale a piwo leży bardzo daleko od stylu.

Pours in clear dimmed gold with a small well built white head. Malty aroma, lightly fruity. Extremely sweet and empty in taste. No bitterness. Light bodied, soft carbonation and a watery texture.
