nybol (1130) - DENMARK - MAY 21, 2016
Det er altid med en hvis skepsis jeg åbner øl fra "de varme lande", de er gerne lidt tynde i det, og gode som tørstslukker i det varme vejr. Men her i det kolde nord, foretrækker jeg nu en kraftig porter. Nå, men det er nu ik’ så ringe den her. Den er ikke ret humlet, som de plejer at være, men den har mere smag, af noget der minder over i noget fersken agtigt. Rimelig eftersmag.

The_Osprey (5487) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2016
660ml green bottle at Mowgli’s Cardiff, as ’Bangla’, 4.8%, BB Dec 2016. Dark amber orange, clear, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is light and airy, some biscuit and sugar. Body is light with tingly carbonation. Taste is toffee sweet, biscuit, tonic water, crisp finish with very little bitterness. I think my overly salty curry made me appreciate this more than I otherwise would have done. It’s fine.

Towey1989 (1517) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle at Pabna, Leek. Pours a clear deep golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of rice, some grain, a little banana and slight herbal hops. Taste of soft bready malt, grain, some banana, subtle spice and slight herbal hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, grainy bitterness in the finish with a subtle cardboard aftertaste. The hint of banana and herbs in this threw me a little but it’s still a generic, Indian restaurant lager. Ok.

Cimbasso (649) - - OCT 23, 2015
Sampled from a 33cl bottle. Orange/gold colour with a white head. Soft carbonation. Sweetish malts and little hop taste. A slight hint of bubblegum. Rather thin and bland.

altonbrownd (5173) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle in Brussels. Orangy body with slight head. Nose is sweet, too sweet, of fruits and sugar and bananas. Taste also fruity with lots of bananas. Bitter in the finish.

Ingevara (889) - SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2015
Svergae head. Light yellow. Shallow aroma, some maltiness but not much. Thin and slightly sweet. Works as a thirstkiller on a really hot day. Not much more to say.

24/V/15 - 33cl bottle @ train ride to LIBF (Leuven) - BB: 19/V/15 (2015-683) Thanks to jc1762 for the bottle!

Note: alas no country tick, Jon! :p
Clear orange beer, small creamy off-white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very sweet, bit malty, fruity, sugar, banana. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: lots of banana, bit yeasty, sweet touch, more banana, citrus. Aftertaste: sweet, banana, yeast, slightly bitter, more banana. You would think they used Westmalle yeast to brew this beer. Very weird...

Martinus (4355) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2015
Warm golden colour, white head. Aroma of malts, skunky hops, bubble gum. Sweet malty flavour, corn. Sweet finish. Not nice.
(from 33cL bottle @ Leuven Innovation. Thanks for sharing, tderoeck)
