John Martin’s Pale Ale. On tap at Harat’s, Zagreb. Clear golden body, not much head. Light soft aroma, plum jam to plum rakija, a tart touch. Sweet soft taste, alcohol, honey, light fruitiness, bitterish end. Quite messy, with clashing flavors. Not my favorite.

Ysok02 (1444) - Mons, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2016
Roba ambrée, belle mousse crémeuse. Nez sur la farine, puis le houblon, pointe de malt et d’épices. Bouche à l’attaque ample, crémeuse, belle bulle et finale amère et onctueuse, à la fois. Une bière agréable, généreuse.

Pours a copper colour, with a small head that fades soon, but leaves a good lace. Aroma of caramel, toffee, butter, red fruits. Medium to light body, thick palate. God carbonation. Taste is similar to the smell, adding notes of citrus. Good.

Sampled from bottle @ Thompson. Smell gives little to go off. Looks a bit dark but consistent. Taste gives you some yeast and malt but is quite bland overall. Overall, not a horrible beer but not great either.
