gunnar (7991) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2011
Bottled gift from my daughter, braught back from Rarotonga. Pours clear golden with a small white head, enourmous amounts of small bubbles in the glass. Aroma of cooked vegetables, sweet corn and plastic. Taste is light sweet, before a citrussy sourness takes over. Fizzy carbonation. Acidic sour evil aftertaste, probably one of the worst beers i have ever tastedf.

Only brewery in the Cook Islands, actually walked by the brewery but didn’t go in cuz it looked really desolate... Mundane lager, not very crisp or enjoyable, but drinkable...

Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Raratonga. Sweetish start followed by a pronounced marmaladey finish. Brandyish flavours inbetween. Unusual and drinkable.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Bottle received as part of a Christmas present. Pours yellow/gold with a white head. Smells of dry malt, some appley notes, touches of pepper. Tastes dry with a decent malty character and a peppery finish. Refreshing enough as a summer sipper and light years ahead of the Sol.

Bottle - country tasting - Kobehavnske Oldage, May 2006. Pale gold colour. Dull malty character. For a fleeting moment I thought I got a faint whiff of citric hop. To that extent it was marginally better than the Flag from Mali that preceded this. Otherwise, pretty standard tropical pale lager, but fairly drinkable. Thanks to Per for sharing.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, deep golden with a rough, off-white head. Discreet aroma of lightly sweet malt. Medium body, sweet, bready - almost caramelish - notes. Some nuts in there as well. And Scotch?? Subdued bitterness. I believe this has gotten a bit old, but it’s actually still quite drinkable. Reminds me of Newcastle Brown.... Courtesy of Bov. 270207

mabjork (692) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2006
Bottled. Hazy golden in colour. Minor white head. The aroma is a blend of corn and malt. The flavour is sweet and you can taste corn and malt. it has a dry aftertaste. Thanks to "oh6gdx" and "omhper" for this one.

Bottled (Thanks omhper!). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma of maize and malts. flavour of malts, white bread and grassyness. Refreshing, but quite boring. Mouthdrying.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2006
Bottled as "Captain Cook’s Lager". Hazy golden color, small white head. Buttery, diacetylic nose. Grassy hoppy, butterscotch flavors and suprisingly light alcohol too. Very unclean product - similar to Royal Ikale from Tonga. But new country courtesy of omhper!
