KyotoLefty (8369) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle. Light blonde color, clear, low, fine, foamy head. Sweet,malty, buttery aroma, fruits, esp. citrus, honey. A rather unpleasant aroma, weird, with malt vinegar and sweat. Sweet, malty aroma, estery fruit, a touch of orange, honey. There is a good bit of bitter hop and a slight sour tang in the finish. Should be colder…not very good..

jaghana (5091) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - SEP 6, 2010
Bottle 33cl. A yellow clear beer. Smell is very bitter and sour. Aroma is very bitter and spicy, smell is lager like, even burnt notes at the finish. There is a huge bitterness there, from dry hoping, infection, notes of solvent. Quite bad.

65cl flip top bottle. Interesting organic beer. light golden in color with white head. aroma is grainy, hoppy with nice floral elements. flavors, has a nice fresh hop presence, brown sugar and nice malty palate. Easy to drink, light palate sweet and malty, lingering citrus hops, a nice change from what can usually be found in French supermarkets.

A golden ale with a thick receeding white head. A rather lager like aroma of german hops and light sulfuric notes., with some caramel notes. In mouth, a crisp malt with german saaz hops, honest and without pretension. Bottle from Inno Supermarket Passy, 2.70 Euros.

DeanF (2042) - Northwest Territories, CANADA - JAN 17, 2010
Pours nicely, golden yellow, fluffy head on top, in a tulip glass. Aroma is a weak affair of slight grassiness and tin. Taste is a nice and strong graininess, slight roasted malt finish with a good taste left on the palate. Refreshing and tasty.
