Prakticky tady přidávám tento komentář, jen aby tady něco bylo, protože zpětně dopisuji 900 piv z mého seznamu a asi bych se musel u toho zbláznit.

Espuma cremosa blanca-marrón que permanece, color ámbar oscuro translúcido con muchas burbujas brotando constantemente, aroma ligeramente dulce en nariz con sabor suave con pequeñas notas dulces y tostadas.

Pyobon (1556) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2018
(Bottle) Pours clear reddish brown with good off-white head. Nice aroma of toffee, with hints of veges, tea and seaweed. Medium body with good carbonation. Rich taste, with good toffee, raisin flavour s and some pleasant fruitiness. Very nice.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2018 Bière légèrement ambrée gouleyante aux saveurs café cuivré pas désagréable mais loin d’être jouissive

Zlotta (4396) - Hagen, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2018
0.5 l bottle as 'Bombardier Glorious English Ale' from 'The English Shop' at 4.7% abv, bottled in July 2017. Clear, deep reddish amber with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity and a little herbal-grassy aroma of molasses, raisins, prunes and some tea. Moderately sweet, slightly bitter, malty, slightly fruity and a bit herbal-grassy taste of raisins, prunes, molasses, some tea and a touch of toffee, followed by a short, just slightly bitter, moderately herbal-grassy finish. Medium body, smooth and minimally effervescent mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Very pleasant Ale, lots of flavour for that abv, solid balance.

Nikokaoja (424) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - JAN 24, 2018
24. 1. 2018, Ljubljana. Bottled. Almost no aroma, perhaps a bit udercooled. Looks are really nice, ruby colour with strong, firm white head. Taste is nothing special, a bit of a bitter end when swallowing in a nice kind of way. Other than that, just mediocre.

erling1000 (864) - DENMARK - DEC 16, 2017
An english, clear, copper Premium Bitter / ESB with light head. Aroma is caramel, malt, toasted bread. Taste is bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drago7 (1098) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 16, 2017
Backlog: Spoko. Bardziej słodowy niż chmielowy. Lekki, pijalny do pubu, nie męczy. 7.50zł za drogo.

wombat23 (2189) - Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2017
500 ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a small creamy light beige head. Aroma of bread, fruit, caramel, nuts. Taste follows nose, with some pepper and herbal notes. Finish is thin. Not bad.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 Pre RateBeer review taken from notes scrawled in my 1001 Beers book. Adding rating for personal reference, so no tasting notes I’m afraid.
