The aroma and the taste is over the average. The appearance is stylish and modern. After 1-2 gulps my first impression was the delectable aftertaste.

A good beer to drink anytime with a nice aroma. The palate sensation could be a bit stronger with a better body.

evannell (898) - Krakw, POLAND - JUN 8, 2016
Piwo ciemne, przejrzyste, z rubinowymi refleksami. W aromacie karmel i trochę żelaza. Gdyby było polskie, czułbym delikatnie Sybillę. Ale stawiam na Kent Goldings. Piana szybko opada, ale jest gęsta, drobnopęcherzykowa i po "zakręceniu znowu się pojawia. Czuć, że będzie nagazowane.

W smaku - zdecydowanie najsłabsze z angielskich piw, ktre da się kupić w Carrefourach. Pierwszy łyk wytrawny. Potem coraz bardziej słodko, lecz wciąż w stronę wytrawnego. Utrzymuje się ten "ejlowy", angielski klimat. I naprawdę nie jest źle. Ale są lepsze w tej cenie. Po ogrzaniu wychodzi gorzałka. Wysycenie rzeczywiście wysokie, ale w przełyku daje rwnież uczucie "mikropęcherzykw", czyli nie do końca ostre. Goryczka jakaś tam jest, nawet dość długa, nieprzytłaczająca. Daty nie znalazłem, ale prawdopodobnie piwo stało na płce "za karę" przez parę miesięcy. Może byłoby tam trochę więcej aromatw Kent Goldings. Trochę jest. Piwo miłe. Lepsze, niż Tyskie.

0.5 l bottle, 5.2% ABV, shared with my father. Amber color, quickly disappearing white head. The aroma is not so intense, some hops and malts. The taste however is way better, malty sweetness followed by bitter hops. Medium bitter finish. Soft carbonation, medium body. Nice drinking beer.

Una buena cerveza con aromas de malta pan tostado, algo lupulosa y en general bien balanceada no mantiene la espuma aunque en general es una buena cerveza aunque costosa.
