Little to comment on. Served out the beer engine with a sparkler, so great mouth feel, but did nothing for the aroma or any hops, if they were present. By no means bad, but neither great or exciting.

AtronSeige (1467) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 9, 2017
Aroma: Light earthy. Appearance: Brilliant, amber body. No head, apart from a ring on the outside and a small cluster in the middle. Flavour: Light earthy, bitterness, bready. Dry finish with very light earthy. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Low carbonation. Overall: Quite bland. No off flavours or aromas. Missing complexity, maltiness and overall hops. 500 ml bottle, poured. 11B. Best Bitter.

Swaroga (2176) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 2, 2017
50cl. Very proper pint of simple ale. Aroma has a toasted bread, caramel, a bit of marmite and grains. Taste is quite dry with delicate bitter end but it is clean and short. Like I said itís a proper pint.

Brought up on this so canít knock it. Bottle conditioned somit says. Well to me itís an acceptable bitter I would turn to in an ocean of tasteless lager. Knocking this would be like mugging my Granny.

MarcinG (722) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2017 Butelka 500ml. Ciemno-miedziana barwa. Piana dosc obfita ,biala,opada dosc szybko. W smaku i zapachu czerwone owoce karmel ciastka i chlebowo-tostowe nuty.Lekko oleiste w teksturze.niska karbonacja sprawia ze wydaje sie bardzo plytkie.
