kaziopiwosz (448) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, POLAND - FEB 10, 2018
Barwa jasnomiodowa, nieprzezroczysta. Średnio gęsta piana znika po około minucie od nalania. W smaku połączenie delikatnej kwasowości oraz dość ostrej, chmielowej goryczki. Obecne nuty miodowe, drożdżowe, nieco chlebowego tła. Dość dobrze nasycone. Chmielowa goryczka długo utrzymuje się na podniebieniu. Bardzo dobrze zbalansowane.

33 cL bottle. Pours a clear, fizzy yellow, with a big, fluffy, beige head. The aroma is lemon zest, pine, coriander, rye, and white pepper. Not very sweet, with a sharp bitterness. Light to medium body, with a fairly hard, acidic mouthfeel. This was good, but not great.
