1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Sugary malt aroma, slightly bready. Really lots of (candy?) sugar. Sweet taste, syrupy texture, cloying, very thick. Evidently alcoholic, with an astringent finish. They call it a ’white porter’, well, it bears some reminiscence to a strong porter via mouthfeel but it lacks the taste and complexity. This combination of sugar and alcohol is extremely difficult to drink. I’ll pass on that.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from random supermarket in Bratislava. Dark golden color with medium white head. Aroma of sweet malt. Sweet malty taste with caramel, strong alcoholic feeling in sweet finish. Too much on sweet side for me and lack of complexity, only sweetness and alcohol.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle. Clear and filtered golden color with small almost non existing head. Nose : flowers, some honey, fruits like peach. Caramel. Some little alcohol scent. Sip : medium density body with oily texture. Good carbonation. Sweet with fruity peach flavor, some caramel and cream. Some esters. Little bitter hops on the end. The end is flower, little sour and bitter. Sweetness stays there too. The alcohol is there but not that strong. I would say it’s a good beer overall.
