Inbreak (1897) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 14.11.2013, tap @ Pestana Carlton - The Pub, Madeira:
Small shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, light malts, caramel, hay, sour-ish grass. Taste is slightly sweet and watery, light malts, hay, caramel, sugar, hints of cardboard. Little bitterness. Probably best served ice cold in the summer sun.

Aroma Cardboard, light grain, barnyard, spicy Appearance Clear gold body. Medium white head. Flavour light sweetness, light bitterness. Crisp Palate medium body, light carbonation Overall The cardboard indicates oxidation, which is unfortunate. This seems to be a very light, easy drinking beer.

allmyvinyl (2941) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 20, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Nice pop from the ring-pull. Pours clear golden yellow, small white head. Aromas are a bit on the cardboard side of things, with corn and cereal. Faintest whisper of hops, sweet on the taste. Not much going on, but not entirely unpleasant.
