BlackHaddock (7404) - Shropshire, - APR 10, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Sep 2012 and poured into an ’Abbot Ale’ glass tankard in Oct 2011. Looked fine, a good light/golden amber body with a thinish white crown of foaming bubbles on top. The small was of floral hops and mixed fruits (apples and pears?). The taste was mostly hops with a dryness from the first sip which lasted until the mouth was completely empty. Claims to be a summer drink, which I suppose it is, being light in colour and refreshing. Not a lot of flavours within it, a bit one dimensional with the hops dominating everything else that might have been in the brew. OK, but not something I’d buy a crate of.

PlutonowyMan (787) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2016
Kolor pomara?czowo z?oty, klarowny. Piana to pó? centymetra ?redniej wielko?ci b?bli, ta niewielka ilo?? momentalnie topnieje, pozostawiaj?c tylko kilka plam. Aromat jest bardzo delikatny, s? karmel nuty owocowe i kwiatowe Smak jest wyra?niejszy, cho? i tak nie jest intensywny. Generalnie jest wi?cej owoców (cytrusowych) i chmielowych nut kwiatowych, karmel jest nieco wycofany, przez co piwo zyskuje na rze?ko?ci.Piwo jest raczej wodniste o wysokim nasyceniu, przez co szybko pojawia si? uczucie syto?ci. Goryczka sucha i do?? d?uga, niezalegaj?ca.
