tderoeck (6212) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2015
27/IV/15 - 33cl bottle from a trade @ my country ticks and pulled pork sandwiches tasting - BB: IV/2015 (2015-534) Thanks to CH-303 for the trade!

Clear pale yellow beer, creamy white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of cannabis on opening the bottle, which is a good sign. Then in the glass it’s more sweet, corn flakes, corn syrup, bit sugary. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: bit sweet, malty touch, corn flakes, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: some citrus, little bitter.

MrHult (443) - SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2015
Burk från kompis via Trinidad, tack! Ljust ljusgul vätska med vitt skum. Doftar sädesslag och metall. Smakar väldigt lite... Förmodligen perfekt i Västindien i värmen men trist annars

DocJitsu (1250) - Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Crystal clear golden pour with a white head. Corn and vegetal nose. Thin, slightly oily, and crisp. Faint flavor. Somewhat refreshing, but, otherwise, no fun.

Bottle at tderoeck. All corn, some wheat, even weed-smell, yeasty. Not the worst effort.
