kiwianer (3336) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 5, 2012
The head is unstable. It smells a bit malty, very watery. Just drinkable if it is 40°C outside. 6/7/7/7/9/7

rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle, from an ethnic food store in Scunthorpe. Gold, thin but sustained white head and gentle condition. Muted chalky graininess in the nose, slightly estery in the mouth with a gentle grain note matched by some delicate hop bitterness. Short estery sweet finish

emacgee (4006) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2012
Shared by Turdferguson. Sharp golden yellow with a foamy white head. Nose is bready and grassy with lightly spicy hop character. Flavor is very similar, light malty sweetness and not too offensive. Prickly/spicy quality that isn’t too bad.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2012
Bottle. Love the pull tab cap. Straw yellow with a small white head. Nose is cereal, light bread, grain, corn, not terrible. Flavor is pretty nasty- corn, watered down cereal, cardboard. I guess I could suck this down if stuck in Latvia with nothing else to drink, but I may just prefer water. Depends on the situation. .

DanielBrown (3776) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2012
Bottle from Istanbul Supermarket, Smethwick. Clear glass bottle, highlights it’s goldenness. Poured into glass, it looks attractive, with thick white head. Smells like malty chewing gum. Very smooth, with malty sweetness as advertised. Finish is a little wallpapery, but this really isn’t too bad. Not enough hop or crispness, but pleasant.

Metalchopz (2261) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2012
Originally rated May 2005. Good foamy lacing and the creamy-fizz head has average retention. The colour of this brew is golden, but with a touch of amber. Quite nice. At first, I could smell euro malt, but then the hop became predominant. Crisp mouthfeel. Smooth start, going to a slight bitter finish. Biscuit afteraste. Non-repulsive lager.

Rune (7963) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2012
500ml flip-top bottle, as Zelta Premium 5.2% abv., beer gift from Helga. Crystal clear, golden body. Fragile lacing from a airy, chalk white head. Plain grainy malts to the nose. Taste of sweet, bready malts. Dry, sweet fruity end. Minimal hops. Soft carbonated. Standard for the style (shared with Frau Eva, 20.03.2012).

Very light yellow color, but a great taste. Not too bitter, but a crisp beer. Foam is crystal white. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
