Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2009
It is warm golden and the head is white and creamy. The aroma has a light sweetness and notes of glue/paint thinner and perfumes/spicy malt. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of glue, peppery alcohol, perfumed malt and a slightly bitter/harsh and slightly dry finish. Not my kind of beer.

Borresteijn (4851) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2008
Bottle @ home. Haven’t tasted this one for years, I figured it was time for a reintroduction. Clear golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma of grain and alcohol, like a malt liquor. Flavour is a lot better though, fruity and sweet, some grain and a hint of bitterness in the finish. Warming alcohol. Not the best of beers, but rather good for this type of brew.

berkshirejohn (4637) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2008
30cl bottle. Straw with a loose white head; hoppy aroma with a touch of vanilla; smooth and oily in the mouth, with lots of tropical fruit and a hint of pear drops;short bitter finish. Much better than the ordinary Amstel in my opinion.
