OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2006
500 ml bottle. Deep golden colour with a mostly lasting frothy white head. Cereal, caramel, floral, and lightly spicy aroma. Light cereal fades to a jumbled, lingering, perfumy, alcohol, and fruity bitterness that "borders" on unpleasant. Light to medium bodied, slightly oily and prickly mouthfeel. Misses the mark for me.

jercraigs (8059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2006
Bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits in Halifax. Crisp yello body with a fluffy good sized white head (3+). Grassy aroma is mild. Pleasant bitterness and mild malt with light bitterness in the flavour. Average palate. It won’t knock your socks off but it is quite quaffable.

thewolf (11233) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2006
M&S Bottled Organic Ale. Pours dark golden with lots of bubbles and a good creamy white head. Malty aroma with hay, citrus and sweetness. Taste is good, with some fruityness and only limited sweetness - ends on a quite bitter note.

Svesse (6285) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2006
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 7 Oct) Golden yellow colour with white head. Fruity nose with citrus, some grapefruit and mandarin. Fruity taste with mandarin, orange, dried apricots and a spicy hoppy bitterness in the finish. Nice hop character, but fairly one-dimensional.

omhper (19925) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2006
[Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival] Clear golden. Heavily papery nose. Sweetish and medium bodied with loads of cardboard. The low hop rate leaves a lot space for the malt flavour. Sadly that consists entitrely of mashed paper and cardboard. A beer for the paper recycling.

mabjork (674) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2006
Bottled. Clear golden in colour. A big foamy and fluffy white head lacings. The aroma is malty with some cereals as well. The flavour is malty with a bitterness to it as well. It is wood like and there are some hops in the aftertaste as well. Nice.

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - AUG 3, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Bottled. Light and evanescent foam, nearly absent. Elegant yellow color, intense, lightly hazy and with optimal fizz. Fresh and aged scent; notes of malts, cereals and resin. Slightly prickly taste, much balanced and with determined and extended bitter. Optimal fresh wood and hoppy notes on the end.
Thanks to mabjork for this beer.
