Na ez jön ki ha egy nagyon jó és egy nagyon rossz sört összekevernek. Matematikailag: jó + rossz = rossz. Nagyon édes. Bélával meg is állapítjuk, ha ez ijen, akkor mijen lehet a kvasar. Téli hideg napokra, mézes tea hejett alyánlom.

Brown red. Less head than the average beer out there has. Very strong scent of herbs. I can distinguish at least cinnamon, clove and muscot. Like a christmas cookie. Same with the flavour but even more like a christmas cookie.

gunnar (5128) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2010
33 cl bottle, gift from Bengt Sundquist, Gřteborg. Pours clear copper with a small white head. Aroma of honey, sweet caramel and a herbal touch. Taste is initially sweet, almost like chewing gum, before it turns herbal bitter towards the end. Lots of interesting things in this beer, I also noticed a lovely liquorice from the aftertaste. Wish I had more of this lovely brew.

Pleasant, spicy and herbal. A nice variety, I usually don’t fancy beer mixes, but his has herbs and flowers plus a nice bitter finish. Bollte brought home from Prague.

Gr0ve (2128) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2010
330 ml bottle. Copper coloured. Tall white head that clings to the glass. Strong initial aroma dominated by honey, pine, chewing gum, and sweet caramel malt. On the sweet side flavourwise, with a nice malty body. Full-bodied. Quite interesting beer in fact as there is a lot of complexity to be found. I like this one a lot.

Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2009
Bottle @ U Medvidku shop/fridge. Buying this the name sounded interesting. Perhaps expected something different. Pours clear amber with a small creamy lasting head and lacings. Nose is lemon , citrus, sugar , fruit and herbs. Full bodied. Taste is herbs and lemon. Reminds me of an imperial radler mixed with herbs. One dimensional. Not really my thing I guess.

heavy (2116) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 5, 2009
29/10 0.5 l bottle, courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! It poured amber body with medium sized head. Sweetish malty and herbal aroma, like pelinkovac or jägermeister. Strong herbal flavor, like already mentioned drinks, I would add martini to the list of similarities here. Fine malty base. Kinda sweet in alcoholic way, but it’s just an illusion of an aperitif than real alcohol touch. Medium bodied with pretty short bittersweet finish. Very interesting and definitely different than anything I’ve tried. It’s good after all.

Bottle from the Pivovarsky Klub in Prague, shared with heavy
Coppery/amber body, scant head. The nose is sticky but bearably so malt, chewing gum, bit herbal. Kinda like a martini or something. Dry, bitter taste, obviously herbal, with some bubblegummy maltiness showing through, like Orbit for Kids. I’m at a loss trying to define which they are... pine and caramel seem like passable descriptors for what I can taste as well. Interesting certainly and drinkable... the aftertaste not being all that long.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Amber with a washing up liquid and licorice aroma mingled with minty chewing gum. For some reason this reminds me of grandmothers. Not mine, just all grandmothers. I don’t like this one bit. Not to say I don’t like grandmothers but you know. Just saw that it contains 30 herbs, this beer is a mess. Much like Campari though I guess. Still shite.
