Green Tea and Ginseng Ale

A very thick, slightly off-white head which reduces fairly quickly to a clumpy, rocky layer.
The colour of this ale is amber and quite cloudy. Looks full and heavy.
Aroma is a sweet sour smell, some caramel notes and a pickle like sourness.
The feel is very rich and creamy, full and satisfying like a good oatmeal stout feel.
The taste is quite sour at first hit. A sauerkraut type of sour, not unpleasant at all. There is a tannin bitterness toward the end of the taste, like you find in tea. I don't overtly taste any tea but the drying tannin feel reminds me of it.
There are some vanilla notes buried in there and a bit of citrus hoppiness. For me, this beers best point is the fullness of the mouthfeel. It feels like a meal, like a good rich stout.
The tastes blend together very nicely and add to the whole experience. I really can't say I taste the green tea, and I don't even know what ginseng is supposed to taste like, but I like the overall combination of flavours in this beer.

Zywiec Tatra Beer
 
Pours a rich golden color with a thin white head.
No aroma to speak of. Just a water smell.
Medium to watery mouth feel.
Flavor, flavor, flavor. This has got it. Honey sweetness from the get go with a creamy middle and a crisp clean finish. I don't think I've had a lager this complex
before. Boggles the mind. Why can't the big boys do something like this. I could drink these all day long.
