Tasting at Paul and Lorna’s flat. Deepest Croydonia. With dubious thanks to the Scopester! Bright clear gold beer, tidy white head. Airy palate, semi dry. Light fine carbonation. Light malts, insipid citrus. Light finsh. Seems fairly clean but it’s very dull.

Theydon_Bois (9695) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2014
Can at the pre-Zwanze tasting in Croydonia, thanks to Paulo, 20/09/14. Clear pale golden with moderate off white spotting and edgework. Nose is pale malt, lemon rind, grain, paper. Taste comprises paper, straw, citric rind, pale malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying clean crisp close. So so.

jmgreenuk (4794) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2014
Tap at Black Gold, Sliema, Malta. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a thin broken white head and some broken lace. The aroma is yeast, light malt. The flavour is moderate bitter with a citrus yeast, light hop palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Not great, but a big step up from the regular Cisk.

Leighton (11641) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Can shared pre Zwanze 2014 - thanks to Mr. Malta! Pours perfectly clrear yellow, lightly effervescent, with a white cream head. Decent dough, cereal and hay on the nose. Light sweet flavor, basic pale bread, cereal, faint paper, some citrus fruits. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Simple cereal, pale bread finish with minimal bitterness. Fine.

Scopey (7183) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Can shared at home. It pours clear gold with a small white head. The nose is sweet, doughy, corn, flour and buttered toast. The taste is clean, crisp, watery.... straw and not much else with a short finish. Light body and fine carbonation. Not much to it. Inoffensive.

Bamsen78 (3313) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2014
Can. Pours clear pale golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops and yeast, with hints of citrus. Bitter flavour of hops, with pronounced notes of yeast and skunky touches. Acetic hints. Definitely not as low carb as advertised. Bitter and skunky aftertaste. Drinkable on a hot day but otherwise quite boring.

Straw. Light grainy aroma, very thin but clean. A drier Cisk that is light, uneventful.

SilkTork (5252) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
500ml silver can from local "supermarket" in Malta. I had this directly after the 5% Export, and this tastes better - cleaner and fuller. It’s a little dry for my taste, but the hops comes though in the finish - a little powdery, but at least there’s something. Not a great beer, but OK.
