Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Can, from supermarket in Paphos. Dark gold, fizzy, head fades pretty fast. Sweet, underfermented, slightly sickly malt aroma tainted by touch of sourness at the end. Thin, moderately soft palate with sticky finish. Immature graininess in the entry, finishing quite dry with enough hint of hop to make it almost palatable. An Oranjeboom masterwork.

Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2010
A golden pilsner with a thick collapsing white head. A chalky malt aroma, with spent grains. In mouth, a chalky adjunct laden lager with mineral notes, metallic hops, medium bodied, cloying. Bought at Carrefour, Bogota, Colombia, for 3000 COP (1.50US$).

Sigmund (4952) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 12, 2008
330 ml can, thanks to KnutAlbert. ABV is 5.0%. Ingredients include maize (corn). "Brewed and canned in the EU under licence of and distributed by Bierbrouwerij de Vriedenkring, Breda Holland." Pale golden colour, large and lasting head. Moderate sweetish and fruity aroma. Boring industrial pale lager flavour, notes of artificial sweetener. Minimal hops. Bad beer.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2007
Can in Rhodes, Greece. Very pale, big bubbles in the small white head. Hoppyyeasty aroma. Lame lager, almost undrinkable.

yngwie (13198) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2007
Can. Clear, a bit pale golden with a bubbly, white head. Grain, malt and some weak fruityness in the aroma. Weak, grainy flavor with some maltyness and some hop-fruityness. Thin body. Weak fruityness in the finish. Waste of malt and water. (070213)

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
Gr0ve (2128) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2007
330 ml can. Clear golden colour. Throws a tall but really weird white head. Huge bubbles. Head disintegrates , but slowly. Really high carbonation level with big bubbles rising to the surface. Gentle clean maltiness with some sweetness. A bit flat at first then more richer malt flavours. Surprisingly little carbonation. Distant hops, and only a drying sensation in the finish. Thanks KnutAlbert.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2007
Medium white head quickly develops huge holes at the surface of the beer and then nearly disappears. Deep yellow body with strong carbonation. Rubbery papery aroma with a touch of apples. Strong carbonation on the tongue. Chalky, watery taste with some light malts. Dusty, dry dandelion aftertaste. Acceptable, but nothing special. (0.33l can. Thanks to KnutAlbert for this.)

thebeertourist (4769) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2007
Can. Clear, deep golden colour, minimum of a rocky head, lots of bubbles. Sweet malts aroma, some flowery hoppiness. Tastes sweet and malty. Rather watery. Substitute for water, I suppose.

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2007
33 cl can, from Nordpolet, Longyearbyen, so technically this is available in Norway. (Hardly worth the trip, though!) Pale lager, some carbonation, a rapidly disappearing head. Some malt, but a we3ird chemical attempt to achieve bitterness. Too cheap tp buy hops? Royale indeed - I had an aquavit with this!
