harrisoni (17162) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2005
50cl bottle from Carrefour. Golden beer with thin white head. Some yeast/citrus/candy sugar/caramel aromas. Not great in mouth with over carbonation. Slightly metallic. Candy sugar dominates then harsh hops. Not a good construction and poor balance

Koelschtrinker (16806) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Süßer Lebkuchengeruch, etwas nach Schokolade. Süß-herber Antrunk, ausgewogen. Sehr gewürzig und eigen werdend, z.T. im hinteren Bereich unstimmig. Gewürzig-bitter im Abgang, zu krass, daher disharmonisch. 8/8/9/9/10/8

yngwie (16483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2006
Bottled. Slightly hazy, golden beer with an off-white head. Malt, cellar and fruits in the aroma. Some metal too. The flavor starts with some alcohol, then spices, malt and hops. Medium body and a dry finish. Ok, it’s better than the regular Norwegian pilsner, but when compared to other Belgians, it doesn’t stand out from the crowd. (060623)

TBone (16116) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2005
Bottled, alc. 6.8 % (BB 10/2005)
Hazy golden, honey-like color, firm small white head. Weak fruity nose with some grassy notes. Medium-bodied, hints of sugar then some fruityness and ending to hoppy bitterness. Quite drinkable and balanced but flavors could be stronger.

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2005
Peachy-orange colour, rocky head and slow, mellow carbonation makes for an impressive lead-in. The aroma shows at first white pepper, then moves on to mango, banana and sweet malt. It’s a little bit firm with white peppery alcohol notes, but this is just a foil against a lot of sweet malts. Dusty yeast notes add accent, as do light apricotty esters.
