500ml bottle poured into half pint

L - slightly cloudy, golden, pours a 5mm thick head, average retention

S - strong honey over white bread. Noted hint of diacetyl and banana.

T - Very sweet. Some honey in the taste, sweet malts. Hops are muted. Finish is a bit too sweet.

M - quite syrupy texture, full bodied, alcohol is apparent. Moderate carbonation.

O - similar to a Hefe in style, this beer has style but the sickly sweet finish is a bit much.

Spent a few weeks in Gdansk last year and this was my favourite of the beers I tried. Looked good (nice and golden) in the glass, easy to drink (you wouldn't know it was 6.5%) and with a good depth of flavour - sweet but with some complexity to it. I found that taste improved if it wasn't overly chilled (although it should still go in the fridge for a bit). I gave a bottle to my dad who described it as 'quite smooth and sweet' - maybe a little too much for some but I would definitely drink this again if I found it.
