(330 ml bottle) Revisiting this beer after many, many years. Crafty Dan is Thwaites Brewery's craft beer project - brewing tradition meets brewing innovation! Pours a clear, dark-amber beer, with ultra-fine carbonation, and a thin white head. The aroma is balanced: fresh lemon and candied orange, backed with toffee and caramel malt. The rye comes into play just behind the hops: chewy black liquorice, and hint of winter spice. Bitter pine and oak sap, earth, and mineral water come through towards the finish. This beer is smooth and palatable: well balanced and blended.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Can at Wetherspoons. Pours rich clear amber with bright white head that dissipates quickly leaving good lacing. Aroma woody with oak, some smoke and fruity undertones.

Zlotta (3823) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2017
0.33 l can from local 'REWE', best before September 2018. Clear, very dark amber with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish, moderately fruity and quite resiny aroma of caramel, orange jam, ginger bread, mango and pine. Quite sweet, just slightly bitter, fruity, resiny and slightly herbal taste of orange jam, mango, ginger bread, caramel, pine and some tea leaves, followed by a short, moderately bitter, rather resiny, slightly dry and a bit herbal finish. Almost medium-bodied, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice old school IPA, not too intense but extremely well-balanced and round, highly sessionable!
