3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber, offwhite head. Aroma sort of, well, generally beery, nothing in particular stands out. Reminiscent of Yuengling Traditional, but kind of sweeter and with a little more hop bitterness. Medium body. Pretty decent but not earth-shattering. And Luxembourg is cool...

This beer was a very light brown, nice head, but way too sweet, caramel dominated. not a bad drink, just too sweet!

Someone brought this for me from Luxembourg. I had no idea what to expect from this beer. Poured an ambercoloured beer with a big head, tasted very sweet with caramelly notes. Pretty thin finish. Very mediocre.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The second of my roommate’s booty-call beer delivery service beers. Pale brown colour with sweet malty nose. Light but oily mouthfeel with largely sugary sweet taste, hint of nuts and diacetyl, I think.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber coloured. Aroma of caramel and malts. Very sweet and caramelly flavour on malty base. The sweet sugar flavour is a little too much for this beer to be well balanced.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer not visible - poured into a stone crock (pale amber?); big off-white head. Roasted malts, even some alcohol in the nose. Grassy aroma as well. Roasted malts again in the taste, some sugar, cookies, and again, alcohol. Quite sweet finish. Light mouthfeel, but there is a slick, oily texture flowing through. Surprising beer - from this brewery. It has an ale character, but I bet anything on it being bottom-fermented. Too sweet, too polished, too roasted for my personal preferences.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Horseblanket and light caramel aroma. Dark amber colour, off-white frothy head, nice lace. Sweet, little syrupy, caramel, little bitterness, moderate full. Bit watery finish with a little bitterness. Maybe just too sweet.
