Leighton (14821) - London, Greater London, - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012, London. One of my contributions to the festivities! Pours hazy, bright gold with a moderate, white foam head. Big herbal nose. Nice flavor, lots of thyme, medium to big sweetness. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, more herbal character. Quite enjoyable. Wish I had taken better notes.

Kauge (857) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 26, 2015
Tap at Open Baladin in Rome. Dark, near clear amber, head off-white, retention ok, lace too. The nose is pale malts, lagery, faint if any caramel notes, slightly gingery, leafy and herbal. Barberry! Some booze coming through unfortunately. Tastes caramelly, spicy, slightly boozy even. Herbal bitterish finish. Carbonation rather pleasingly medium crisp. Sticky, strong in the mouth. Interesting experiment but a bit disappointing.

thellgren (502) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2015
0.2 l draught @ Bier Bier, Helsinki. Golden colour, no head, no bubbles. Quite fruity and easy to drink. Reminds me Finnish sahti. Well, I guess this is ancient Egyptian sahti. Interesting.
