martjoobolut (1370) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2015
0,33L bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks!). Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, fruits, and tangerines. Flavor follows the nose. Body is somewhat watery. Overall: good. It reminds me mandarina hops, which is one of my favorites.

330ml bottle (?)
Sweet sticky aroma. Even the top pour was cloudy, but this should not be a cloudy beer. Actually has quitean american aroma. Rough taste,so freaking soapy. Ugh, soapy finish. Nope.

Saeglopur (817) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 18, 2015
330 ml bottle, bb 17/3/15, shared by Werckmeister. Thanks Stefan!
Bright orange, hazy body, with a small, creamy, off white head.
Aroma of glue, but not in an unpleasant way, also apricot, citrus, resin, mild grapefruit, some stone fruits, peeled orange, sweet malts.
Tastes of sweet malts, like candy, citrus, orange, some resin, some pine, alcohol.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes medium bitter, fruity, sweet malty.

Although past the best before date, still very fresh, fruity and pleasant. Drinks very easy, ABV is well hidden. This must have been great fresh!

nihtila (1473) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
20.4.2014. Clear pale colour. Aroma is fruity, has pine but also some almost metallic, caramel. Taste is sweetish, resinous, piny, grapefruity. Longish finish is bitter with pine and some tangerish or sth I cannot describe, maybe characteristic for Comet? At least the sweet resin seems to be. Tasting with Kohatu, they have different characteristics and Im not sure if I like this that much.

CanCrusher (724) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle 0,33L. Hazy copper colour with large, fruity, off-white head, excellent lacing and poor visible carbonation. Aroma of mandarin, mango, orange and pineapple. Light bitter taste with everything mentioned in aroma plus long lasting aftertaste. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation. Not as good as Kohatu, but better than EXP 366 and Amarillo.
