Countbeer (5309) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2010
Bottle: Fluffy white head on top of a clear yellow beer. Smell spices, pilsner, malts, malt liquor. Taste is a bad mix of alcohol, malts and some spices. Too much alcohol, nothing special!

imdownthepub (11386) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2010
Bottled, 300ml from Camping Flevostrand Supermarket. Pale gold, carbonated white head. Sharp and quite tinny beer with some sharp maltiness and a slightly fuller hop note. Still quite dull though.

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2010
Tap in Spain as Amstel Oro. amber color, light off-white head. Aroma and flavors, regular Amstel with some added malts, noticeable caramel. Not bad, definitely has an added abv kick. Not the best, but drinkable.

dEnk (4195) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2010
Golden/slight brown pour, instantly dissipating head. Aroma of old beer. Tastes of old beer as well, watery old beer with faint hints of the "definite taste of fruit and hops". Not a lot of carbonisation, not a lot of flavour.

Had this with an Indonesian meal (very good meal) in Amsterdam, 07-06-09 Pours deep gold with white head, malty nose. Tastes strong, bit too sweet, fruity but reasonable bitterness. Went well with the Indonesian food. A6 A4 F6 P3 Ov11 3.0

Maria (10191) - 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 (5411) - Zaandam, 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.
