Sevenlee (1411) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2013
Pours an orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, caramel, toasty notes and some yeast. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a dry finish. Different.

allmyvinyl (4247) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 11, 2013
Pours a light amber with good 1cm lasting head. Woody, appley, viney sort of nose. Sweet taste, a little sour, touch of spice. Something about it that doesn’t say ’lager’. Carbonation good, texture a bit oily, finishes strangely bitter. Overall, not sure what to make of this beer. Interesting experiment.

Rob_D_UK (893) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Dark golden colour, aroma of vanilla, some whisky, honey and fruits. Taste is warming, vanilla, whisky, oats. Decent but not spectacular for the style.

kerenmk (2612) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at our place. Clear golde-amber, quick dissolving white head. Wine and raisins in the nose, sweetish petrol in the mouth. Medium body, very fizzy, long, white wine finish. Not good.

zvikar (3656) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - APR 24, 2013

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - APR 24, 2013
33cl bottle. Pours transparent orange with medium white frothy head. Caramelish aroma with fruits added, evoques sweetness. The flavour is really oaky, pretty much a blend of whisky and white grape, with some fruitiness added as well. The mouthfeel is light/medium, soft carbonation. Weird, not bad though.

DSG (6351) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 23, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Clear deep golden with a white head,. Aroma of wood, quite acidic and vinous, and a bit of hops, slightly stale. Bitter flavor of hops, a bit of floral and a bit stale, lots of wood and some funky vinous notes. Medium-bodied. Kinda weird.

Hazy amber beer, tidy off white head. Mildly crisp palate, fairly dry. Vanilla oak and a little sour whisky, quite mild and in good balance with the oak. Palate turns softer and sublte orange hops appear before a sei dry finish. Not bad! A bit off the beaten track.
