HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle (330ml). Via trade with glouglouburp. Very cloudy orange pour, small frothy head. Light aroma - sweet, spicy and floral, some noticeable alcohol. Taste - my thatís nice - sweet, but nice - sweet spicy citrus juice, ginger ale and floral/herbal bitterness (some). Light body, mildly carbonated, a little strong with the alcohol as it warms, no unpleasantness at all in flavour or aftertaste - quite a sweet little treat! Nothing like any cookie Iíve ever had, but Iíd try one of those speculoos if offered. (my wife said "gingersnaps!" before I showed her the bottle)

Blond yellow coloured beer with some yeast particles and a small white head. Herby specific spicy aroma. Full palate. Finish is full malty, herby/spicy. Very special one.

to say it tastes like a cookie would be understatement. Definitely a sugar cookie. Too syrupy. Kentish hops and pilsener malt. The ginger and cinnamon are too shy to notice. The top-fermenting is a plus, as is the cloudy look. With such a simple taste, how did this win an award? (on tap for ale festival at the standing order, new town, edinburgh, scotland).

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2008
Cask, but I presume not conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Hazed gold with no head. What on earth was this, very sweet, malty and spiced, everything I donít really like in a beer. Yeasty and bready, quite poor.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2008
Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford, in Wetherspoons Real Ale Festival. Hazy gold with a small white head and a slight spicy aroma. Very sweet taste, rather bready, with ginger and cinnamon. Slight dry finish. Not beer as we know it, but I quite liked it.

sm89walt (1741) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2008
Cask - JDW, Canterbury. I think itís fairly safe to say that this can be summed up in one word: sweet. One shouldnít really expect something named íCookie Beerí to be anything other than sweet though, I suppose. Itís a hazy orange beer with a frothy white head. The aromas are sweet with some doughy biscuit notes (shock horror!) and, at times, also hints of boiled sweets in the background. The flavours are typically Belgian on the surface with more biscuity characteristics. Surprisingly clean palate texture with no bitterness. Rather interesting and better than I had expected.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2008
Bottle. Unclear golden colour with a huge white head. Little aroma of coockie, malt and some yeast-like. Malty flavour with a lot of caramel, very sweet. Hard to find the 8 % alcohol. Sweet and little bitter finish.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2008
Bottle at the Marble in Manchester. Great pub, I left 40 quids worth of beer there yesterday and it was still there when I rang up two hours later. Interesting indeed, like cookies, love beer so I was intrigued. Wasnít let down, tasty indeed. Looked like the death star exploding in there. Bits everywhere. Hints of cookies obviously, ginger, biscuit, slightly spicy. Sweet, a little gassy. Nice indeed. And good to watch while youíre nursing a bad head like mine.
