Sometimes you want a beast of an imperial stout to sip and savour sometimes you just want a simple bitter to wash down a Chinese takeaway own a Friday night slightly creamy small hops bitterness it’s fine.

rostetti (354) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 9, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark golden with small white head. Aroma and taste have some toastiness, some sweetness but this is pretty tasteless after all.

kaserov (587) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 12, 2017
Color dorado turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (muy poca retención). Carbonatación mínima. Textura acuosa. Aroma herbal, algo de malta y lúpulo ligeramente rancio, terroso. Sabor que sigue al aroma completamente, con una mínima dosis de amargor final que no puede considerarse amargor siquiera. Beberse una botella de medio litro de algo tan plano es francamente difícil.

rumore (431) - Rimini, ITALY - MAR 1, 2017
From 50cl bottle. Pours fairly crisp intense gold, with medium foam (high in the beginning, but fading fast). Aroma is fruity, barnyard/hay, earthy. Body is medium, with medium carbonation (actually surprising for a bitter). A bit of a metallic feeling. In taste, low bitterness, some noticeable bitterness, of the traditional type (slightly herbaceous, terrain). Finish is relatively long, with lasting bitterness.

john44 (3034) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle. Orangey gold in colour. Sweet fruity. Malty base (buttery caramel). Hoppy (grassy & earthy hops). Long dry bitter finish. OK bottled bitter. (2008)

Stew41 (2005) - Phuket, THAILAND - NOV 23, 2016
Classic of the genre. Subtle but full of character - aniseed, soft pepper hops, dry palate. Not a beer that shouts but has plenty to say. (170 baht Villa Market)

labeerinthum (799) - Milano, ITALY - SEP 5, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso ritrova orzo e alcol. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una buona tenuta e finisce con un pizzo sul bicchiere. La grandezza delle bollicine è media e la carbonazione è abbondante. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. La grandezza delle bollicine è media. La carbonazione è esuberante, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è ambrato. Il corpo è pieno. Il dolce è medio. L’amaro è deciso ma non così carico come il nome farebbe supporre. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate. Il finale è amarognolo e pulito. L’aroma in bocca racconta impressioni di miele, frutta secca, luppolo e resina.
