MrHangover (3952) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle. Flat pour, no head at all.. Aroma has hoppy influences, but nothing extraordinary present. Flavour is medium bitter, no carbonation at all, very flat and watery mouthfeel.. Not good...

Koelschtrinker (17308) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 20, 2013
Milder, etwas säuerlicher und deutlich bitterer Antrunk. Der Hopfen ist vergleichsweise gering, Trocken werdend, dezente Fruchtnoten, weiche Bitterkeit. Im Abgang noch trockener, hell würzig, süffig. Grapefruit im Abgang. 6/9/9/10/9/9

Benzai (14108) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2013
33cl bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy orange color, small, a bit soapy white to off-white head. Smell malts, hops, lightly pine and a bit fruity. Taste malts, hops, lightly piney, bitter and slightly fruity. A bit thin, but it was poured very cold so that might have to do with it as well. Nice beer though.

bierkoning (12387) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Golden color, hazy. Grapefruit, ripe melon and a hint of oily hops in the aroma. Thin, but also a firm almost medecinal grassy hopbitterness, pushing away the tropical fruit flavors. Very low on carbon.

Alusmamuts (1568) - LATVIA - DEC 2, 2012
Really proud by te firsts Latvia’s ale. Sometimes difficult to evaluate, but really a good ale, which bitterness corresponds well with its name.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle @ home. Aroma is yeasty fruit, some orange pudding. Flavour is quite young with a grassy fruity herbal hop note. Quite bitter. Too young or just not my thing.

zenkis (754) - Ogre, LATVIA - OCT 27, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2013 Clear, intensive aroma of plums with tones of citrus hops. Amber in color it pours and thin, white layer on top it has. Simple bitterness with nice dry finish. Above medium bodied. Not complex flavor. Good one but something not enough. Update: second batch- out of blue in aroma there is some mold, old wood tones, not so fruity in aroma, more matured it seems, flavor although has stayed in same condition - more hopped than malt profile, simple one to me. Seems a bit bitter-sour from hoping.

Vells (1607) - Rîga, Latvija, LATVIA - OCT 26, 2012
Cloudy amber with thin white head. Aroma not very intense , but for me it is plums. Hoppy. Taste.. a ton of bitterness. not bad, thou I would like more complexity Dry finish. Overall. .as it is said - easy drinking beer. quality brew.
