I’ve drunk a lot of pints of this, because often it’s the only thing on tap in the pubs of North London. Never had the bottle before - probably because I never found those pints particularly inspiring. Bottle starts out better, seems lively, interesting richness. But then it fades - finish (and middle) becomes watery. And weirdly, the more you drink of it, the more watery it becomes. Oily in the mouth, thin taste - just a bit of caramel and bitter at the start and then it fades to nothing. Pass.
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 (984) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 16, 2017
Backlog: Spoko. Bardziej słodowy niż chmielowy. Lekki, pijalny do pubu, nie męczy. 7.50zł za drogo.

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. p0urmeac0ld0ne (413) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - DEC 8, 2017
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. Salian (168) - Sale, Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2017
Somewhat old fashioned ale, sweet caramel, biscuit and a bit of hops to leave a dry finish to a sweet, malty beer. Ok.

I thought I had already reviewed this one ages ago! Pours a rich brown in colour with small but lasting white head. Aroma is full of biscuit and sweet malt, with a touch of fruitcake in there too and a slightly grassy hop note. Taste is rich malty sweet but balanced with dry hop, lasting finish. Quite thick feeling in the mouth, an old classic, nothing amazing but certainly a good beer to come back to now and then einherjar (500) - Rijeka, CROATIA - NOV 28, 2017

Surprisingly light (and arguably even refreshing) despite its creamy mouthfeel, it then takes a quick final detour and ends with an incredible toffee-like finish. In many ways, it feels like the inverse of a regular stout. Peer closely enough and it’s a light amber instead of the brownish black it first appears to be. It starts with a brash hit of malt and closes with a thick, rich sweetness. The mouthfeel is creamy without being a throaty-thickness. At times, it feels like every bit of the experience was engineered to subvert the notion of a typical stout. One of the best picks from The Great Beer Bar.
