KoNrRiI (1093) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2015
0.5 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts and alcohol. Taste is also quite alcoholic, relatively simplistic to boot. Light body, thin tecture, and average carbonation. Finish is filled with alcohol and grains. Overall a bad beer, dms and liquor all the way through.

Jamedra (722) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 23, 2015
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je sladové s jemným chmelovým akcentem a lehkým závanem alkoholu. Pěna je bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť je výrazně sladová s přítomným chmelovým komponent, finiš je slabě hořký lehce palčivě alkoholový a držící. V ústech pivo působí plně, má střední až silný říz a je hůře pitelné. Není to špatné pivo, ale je i spousta jiných lepších silný světlých ležáků.

jawlo (373) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 17, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2015 Aromat: słodki zbożowo-landrynkowy, lekko chmielowy. Barwa: jasno-słomkowa, klarowna. Piana: średnio-obfita. Wysycenie: bardzo wysokie. Smak: spora słodycz na bazie zboża, lekka goryczka chmielowa, na finiszu wychodzi ordynarny alkohol. Piwo trochę mulące. Generalnie jest to mocniej alkoholowa i słodsza wersja zwykłego budweisera, jednkaże i tak nie wyróżnia się niczym wartym większej uwagi.

On tap at the Rake, hazy gold with a fast-settling head, aroma is sweet malt with a light floral and dry grass note. Sweet on the palate yet also lighter than most sweet Bocks I’ve tried. Dry-sweet finish with a touch of herbal hop.

330ml green bottle, filtered, from Co-op at reduced price. Vinegar and plastic aroma. Dry palate with some watery sweet malt. Few hops. As far as strong lagers go this one is pretty poor. I grabbed a few of these as they were so cheap. Wish I hadn’t. Cheap strong Polish lager is brilliant.

Keg at ushers. Pours clear golden, nose is grassy toffee, taste is dull sweet floral toffee, sickly.
