Meilby (7609) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle 330ml @ Geokkjer
Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, butterscotch, vanilla and wood. Taste is light to medium sweet, light bitter and light sour with a kind of sour, woody, vanilla finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle. It pours a lightly hazy body, golden in color and with a small, off-white head. Vanilla, butterscotch and some fruityness in the aroma. A touch of alcohol too. Medium body, lightly acidic on the palate. Pleasant carbonation. Butterscotch and vanilla in the flavor too, quite fruity, and with a nice bitterness. Lightly acidic in the far end. Well, in a strange way it’s an interesting beer, but it’s not a beer I could have a few of. Hence the low score. 121017

Cunningham (4489) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2012
Golden colour with a small white head. Malty and fruity aroma. A bit sweet and fruity flavour. Solid malt background. Not to much alcohol in the flavour either. Nice.

andrepintado (1421) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - OCT 4, 2012

sebletitje (6678) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2012
33cl bottle from Geers, batch#118, BB 17-04-2013. Dorée, fin blanche. Arôme est légèrement boisé laissant de fines notes de vanille avec ce côté de raisin blancs, et chêne français? Le tout garde ce bouquet de lager de par la levure mais aussi cet aspect maïs. Palais garde pour moi ce profile fruité raisin blanc presque de Sauterne, le tout est réchauffant surtout pour n’être que 7.7%, pas mal de notes citronnées, picotement au palais avec une fini boisé persistant qui se retrouve un peu trop sur la dominance. Profile malt est dans le style pils-pâle avec une levure lager rappelant bien le style et ce côté finement maïs. Pas mauvaise, mais où est vraiment l’intérêt de cette barrique.

jbeatty (1022) - New York, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle, 09/30/2012. Pours reddish amber, sparkling, thin frothy white head. Aroma is light whiskey with mild caramel and vanilla notes, honey, some straw malts peaking through, lager yeast. Taste is sweet, buttery, jarring combination with rough-like lager grains, dry mild bitter finish, boozy. Light body. Doesn’t quite work for me.

Theydon_Bois (8613) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle at home (Bitter Virtue) - 22/09/12. Pours a hazy pale golden with a thin white head that soon clears to the edge of the glass. Pale malts, orange peel, melted plastic, grain and herbs on the nose. Malt, grain, wood, medicinal tones, citrus and herbal aspects to the flavour with some hints of whisky. Medium bodied, a little watery for 7.7%, medium carbonation with a medicinal orange flavour in the finish. Overall something a little different and in my opinion it is certainly drinkable. I’d share a bottle again if someone else had already sourced it, but I wouldn’t fork out £4.50 for it in the future myself!
