Marduk (3591) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2015
500ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Malty, spicy hops of some sort in aroma. Malty, citrus, dusty taste. Poor and messy. Not my cup of beast.

martjoobolut (1344) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2015
Bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks!). Pours yellow with off-white head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is sweet, malt grains, and popcorn. Flavor follows the nose. Overall: bad.

500ml bottle (Taka, Riga)
Looks OK. Smells stinky grains. Corny. Sticky palate. Unpleasant porridge taste. Complete mess. DP.

TaxiDriver (1543) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. A soft malty smell, bread and citrus, quite strong amount of yeast. The small fizzy white head has a normal duration. The body is yellow to orange. A light sour taste, some yeast. The body is medium strong, creamy with a soft carbonation.

tomekk1978 (784) - Ząbki, POLAND - APR 4, 2015
Aromat: głównie słodowa (zboże, chleb, herbatniki) słodycz i alkohol. Gdzieś w tle leciutkie akcenty chmielowe (ziołowo- kwiatowe). Po chwili także niewielkie utlenienie. Barwa: słomkowa / jasno złota, wyraźnie zamglona (po dolaniu wręcz nieklarowna). Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanej wielkości i niezbyt trwała. Smak: słodycz, złamana kwaskowością. Zboże, herbatniki, nawet lekki karmel oraz miód, z nutą alkoholową. Goryczka ( z akcentami ziołowymi, kwiatowymi i owocowymi) niewielka, delikatna i krótka. Średnia pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie, lekko szczypiące / piekące odczucie w ustach i nieco alkoholowy, aczkolwiek delikatny finisz. Odrobinę oleista konsystencja.

belgis (251) - LATVIA - MAR 28, 2015
Sweet mild aroma,heavy sweetness in taste. Light murky color with lazy lacing that lasts. Gets too undrinkable after half a glass.

allmyvinyl (5664) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2015
500ml bottle from Great grog. Pours clear pale gold, thick white head. Aromas of yeast, brad, spice, light lemon, light banana. Taste is more spicy yeast, light bread malts. Sweet on the finish, but not sticky.

MichaelAwesome (5269) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2015
Ein sehr schöner und teilweise fruchtiger Bock mit einer recht spritzigen Note, etwas ungewöhnlich viel Süffigkeit und viel Frische, die vollkommen unerwartet kommt. Vanille, etwas Butter und ein etwas Blumigkeit im Hintergrund. Zu empfehlen.
