Tamno crvena boja, debela smedja pjena, veoma lijepo za oko. Arome nisu mnogo izrazene, pomalo kafa, cokolada i sušeno voće. Vema blage gočine i karbonizacije, vodene teksture.

While enjoying discovering beers from this brewery, this one described as ruby red ale, where I would hope for an amber or scotch ale, ESB is not my cup of tea.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 Une superbe bière brune qui dévoile des saveurs de malt torréfié, de café et de houblon. J'ai adoré.

0.5 l bottle shared. Apperance: A mahogany body, with a small thin offwhite head. Aroma: dark fruits, Malts, burned malts and sugars. Taste: Starts fruity sweet, some biscuit malts, some caramle malts, and some burned sugards in the short bitter finish. soft carbonation and a light body. OKay.

3.2
midovark (1138) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 26, 2017
0.5 l bottle. Pours mahogany with thin, persistent head. Nose is fruity-flowery with decent malty backbone. Same applies to the taste: fruits come upfront, followed by biscuit-like malts. Decent, and well rounded. Short bittersweet finish, soft carbo, light body. Proper bitter.

2.3
Hanoi (982) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2017
Nose is very fruity, slight yeast. Taste is fruity, yeast, spice. Stale, acidic, sickly taste which seems to be in all wychwood brews is overpowering. Mouthfeel is sticky.
