rosenbergh (6709) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2012
750 ml bottle. From France. Courtesy of Brandman. Clear deep golden colour with small white head. Sweet almondy malty aroma. Flavour is also quite sweet with almond, and malt. Rather unpleasant. No good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ogivlado (5672) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 8, 2008
Bottled(750ml). -from Auchan Budapest tried in Sarajevo.
Golden coloured, medium to big sized white head that went away slowly, light cheesy nose. Sweet malty, herbal and slight yeasty taste with notes of spices and friuts. Some grainy notes in rather bitter finish. To be honest I’ve expected (much) better beer.

Cunningham (4439) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2012
Golden colour with a white head. Malty and light fruity aroma. Thinner texture than expected but also a bit more hoppy than expected. Light malty and hoppy flavour.
[Bottle from Auchan Market in Luxembourg]

RichardGretton (4241) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2006
Bottle. Pale golden beer with a weak grassy aroma and a yeasty and weak flavour. Overall quite a poor beer for the style.

jaghana (3818) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle 75cl @Auchan, a clear copper beer with medium head. Nose is on fruits, sugar and spices. Aroma is sweet, medium malty, currant fruit notes, peppery hops, bit too sweet. Quite basic.

BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2012
Cork and caged 0.75 litre bottle: best before 16 Sept 2012, poured into three pilsner glasses on 10 March 2012. Yellowy orange body of well carbonated beer: on top sat large heads of white bubbles which left some good lacing as the beer levels dropped. Smells of citrus hops, metal mops and fresh yeast. Tastes of fizzy citrus hops, rusting metal mops and old yeast. The alcohol is well hidden, but overall this isn’t a well balanced brew in my eyes: different certainly, but not really interesting or compelling enough to have another bottle.
