RobeerBumA (5) - NEW ZEALAND - FEB 28, 2017 does not count
This is a seminal model for other Pale Ales to follow.It has that Flinty Burton Water character,it’s very drinkable indeed.Golden Promise is a rarely used Malt these days because of expense and other factors,which are another story.But boy does it make this,in conjunction with the Burtony and classic Hops,one gigantic master of a low Alcohol Beer (but not weak by any measure).It hath Hay,Nuts and Toast sure,a bit Floral and Citrus yes,a little of the barnyard and rotten eggs yes,yes perfect.

500ml bottle into pint glass. Pours bronze with a big cap of white froth on top. Aroma of caramel toffees and dark fruit. Medium carbonation. In the mouth it is zingy and lightly bitter. Finish is long with emerging fruit and long hoppy bitterness. Great bitter, beautifully balanced.

Bottle at home. Pours clear amber colour. Good citrus flavour and nice balance of bitter and caramel notes. Not bad.

Lore (2746) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 6, 2016
Dark gold colour, minimal off-white head; aroma and taste of bread, biscuits, some caramel and maybe walnut l, as well as floral notes; easy to drink, but it has a minimal metallic aftertaste, what reduces a bit the experience

0.5 l bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi, Helsinki. Appearance is amber and clear, also bubbly with a nice head. Taste has a crisp bite, then there are the English malts. No bitter aftertaste. More in the vein of pale ale than bitter.

Bottle - Sweet pale malts and bread. Clear gold with a small white head. Bready and sweet with some light bitterness.
