Mishnok (375) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2017
A pretty typical large volume bitter that are ubiquitous at most supermarkets in the UK. It is malty and caramel, nice copper colour with decent lacing. Nothing particularly wrong about, it's just that it's a bit 'meh' ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Robe rousse, caramel avec des reflets rouges, limpide, fine mousse blanche de mauvaise tenue. Nez toffee et herbes. Bouche bien balancée entre le malt (caramel, candie, toffee) et le houblon (herbe, terre). Carbo faible, longeur moyenne, corps et alcool faible. Une ale anglaise pas mauvaise...

Još jedna loša lidlova "craft" piva. Ova je posebnija od prijašnjih zato jer ima nekakvu gorčinu u sebi.

Copper colored, small white head. Aromas of malt, caramel and slight bitter hints. Bittersweet taste with caramel, malt, bread and slight hops.

Got this in a can at 4.2%. Pours a clear copper with a small offwhite head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is malty and fruity. Taste is little bitter and a little sweet. There are notes of toasted malt, herbal hops, fruity esters, mineral water, and a touch of toffee. Medium bodied with plenty of sharp carbonation. It’s a bit watery with a lingering mineral aftertaste. I’m not entirely sure why but I could see myself putting back many pints of this in the pub.

From old tasting notes. Amber gold color. Big rocky beige head. Soft fragrant malt nose. Bittersweet toasted malt flavor is soft and complex with hints of butterscotch and toffee.

Marko (5930) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 30, 2017
Bottle, thanks Natko! Dark amber body, clear, off white head. Sweetish perfumey grainy, honeyish aroma okay, vague fruity touch. Grainy malty tasty, dry, tart touch. Vague hoppy bitterness. Prickly carbonation. Ergh. Doesn’t work really.

Bottle at home. Pleasant ale with low abv, perfect for summer nights. Nicely bitter
