Appearance: Deep golden color with a fine thick foamy white head that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Caramel malty, hoppy and mild fruity.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate sweet and a fine bitterness. Soft carbonation.
Taste: Dominating caramel malty, hoppy and a fine tropical fruity background.
Overall impression: Nice tasty ale, but a bit mild for an IPA. More like an British special bitter.
Personal stats: On tap at Pivovar Sandorf in Prievaly, Slovakia.
(Handbottled, 1 l - BBE 06 Jul 2012, 20120710, courtesy of rosenbergh) The beer poured brown and cloudy. Its head was tiny and white. Aroma had hops, citricness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, hops, frutiness, paper, sweetness and biterness. Aftertaste was fruity, malty, papery and bitter. Oxidation had done its damage here but still the beer was good. rosenbergh (11755) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2012
1 000 ml plastic bottle. From Cuso. A really big thank you!bierkoning (13607) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2012
Cloudy amber colour with small soapy white head.
Dryish floral and fruity hoppy aroma with some bitterness, woody dryness and caramel malty notes. Actually quite delicious. Flavour is nice combination of floral and fruity hops, mild bitterness, grainy malt, touch of caramel sweetness and woody dryness. Very good. Smooth. Soft carbonation. Just enough hoppiness to be enjoyable. Definitely English style IPA. Refreshing. I like this.
PET bottle from Cuso, thanks! Pale amber color. Lemon, grapefruit, oily hops and a hint of yeast in the aroma. Oily hopbitter flavor with lemon and hints of yeast, particularly in the aftertaste. Malty. Full bodied. Certainly not bad. Quack-Duck (9490) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2012
bottle with thanks to Cuso! Hazy maber colour, big off-white head leaving beautiful lacework. Fruity resiny hop aroma. Medium-bodied malty base with lots of good, aromatic hops that have a slightly resiny, but also fruity character. Full of flavour, well balanced, with a velvety and smooth body! Another superb beer from this brewery. I hope someday I can visit Prievaly!

but overall easy drinkable, tasty beer. ogivlado (7955) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 6, 2012
On tap at Richtar Jakub, Bratislava. Dark golden/amber coloured, small off-white head, caramel and light hops in the nose. Light toasted malt, caramel and fruits with mild hoppy notes. Bitter and a bit watery finish. Pleasant.
On tap at the brewpub/brewery. Toasted malt, aromatic hops and caramel with hint of alcohol. Either way good IPA.
