2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 330ml. -Courtesy of Cuso/Gutrhnar, thanks to both! Dark golden coloured, small white to off-white head, light green apples in the nose. Sweetish malty, dry caramel, weak herbal hops and again green apples with dry finish. Had better had worse but this one is probably (nearly) infected.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks Ogi! Hazy old gold/dark amber body, almost no head. Aroma... green apple on some maltiness aaaaand some formic-acid like herbal hoppy notes, with vague yeastiness. And somehow it manages to work as a non-unpleasant aroma, but not for an IPA. Taste... dry caramel malty notes with some herbal hoppy touches, ending dry. This is not an IPA in any way, not in this shape anyway, though I’m not noting any oxidation. This is simply in no way an IPA, with less hoppiness or daring flavors than most Session IPAs, or even APAs, or even EPAs I’ve had. So, an average amber ale. Eh.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden beer with a massive white head on top. Aroma smells like a bad Brett infection, tart and grassy. Flavour is also not the way it’s intended to be, very tart, Bretty and nowhere near a decent ipa. Not even sure if the base beer was all that full, but right now it’s infected or poorly produced. Too bad, other beers from this brewery were alright.

On tap at Steinplatz, Bratislava.
Okay, I was at dentists today, but that shouldn’t be an excuse, previous beer was just great. Not sure if it’s by carbonation, but my teeth are literally covered by bubbles. It’s like I’m drinking hoppy soda with alcohol. What the...
