Tasting Notes: Kormoran: Krzepkie

Alcohol And Aphorisms

Kormoran Krzepkie

Kormoran: Krzepkie (Poland: Imperial Pils: 7.4% ABV)

Visual: Yellowed gold. Large white bubbled head. Moderate carbonation.

Nose: Smooth. Crisp. Wheat hops. Soft caramel. Fresh floral lager character. Cake sponge.

Body: Smooth. Crisp lemon. Palma violet. Moderate hops but low bitterness. Fresh lime. Raspberry pavlova. Floral character. Small treacle like boozy back. Vanilla malt chocolate.

Finish: Custard. Palma violets. Smooth toffee. Hop oils. Some bitterness. Honeyed barley, or maybe golden syrup. Slight alcohol air.
