UPDATED: OCT 9, 2017 This used to my favourite beer till it was changed from 5.6% to 5.1% abv, this seemed to water down the flavour and take away what made this so good. It's still a nice beer with a nice flavour but I wish they'd bring back the full flavour stronger beer they had.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2017 First thing I noticed was how lovely the beer was. Carbonated like a mellow lager. Poured dark Amber. Really quite sweet and malty with a bitter lasting finish. Caramel, dried fruit, raisins, prunes.

Nice to find a real beer. Having worked in a brewery for 10 years in the sixties I understand what real beer tastes like, and this is real beer.

Color ámbar, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio de tres dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación suave. Textura acuosa. Aroma a malta caramelizada, lúpulo floral, reminiscencias de frutos secos. En boca, lo mismo. Ligero amargor final. Típica.

5.1% alk. Kupljena u Lidlu. Crvenkastno narančaste boje, pjena brzo nestane. Dosta dugo ostaje gorak okus u ustima. OK je.

Bottle from Lidl, drunk at home. Perhaps a bit too watery, lacking any distinctive character and overdone with bitterness, but nevertheless, better than the endless raft of supermarket beers that infest this country.

Bottle So this is premium bitter? Meh. Bitterness is there just so so... Some herbs maybe at max. Thx for the point.

PeatyPete (1112) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2017 Amber coulered beer with off-white head. Malty aroma with some fruity notes. Taste malty and spicy and a hint of yeast.
