jaghana (3888) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle 50cl kindly given by Calisky. Nose is on wet paper, aroma is low malty, light nit touch, dry, again wet paper notes, no hops, no bitterness, very poor and boring.

Erzengel (2607) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle found in London in a Turkish shop. Smooth sweetish malty beginning. Not too intense, fresh, but lots of grain. Not too easy drinkable, sweetish grainy. The aftertaste has hints of malt, lots of grain and a strange sweetness.

Calisky (697) - ALSACE, FRANCE - AUG 10, 2014
Couleur dorée, mousse blanche qui disparait. Nez houblonné, un peu herbe, un peu malté. Gout assez doux houblonné herbe et malté. Petite pétillance et très légère amertume. Ca passe

Borresteijn (4677) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2014
50cl Bottle on Syros. Clear pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of paper, corn, starch, light malty, rice. Flavour is light, crisp, rice, paper, dry, artificial sweetness, maltose, very light-bitter finish. Light-bodied. Drinkable, but no more than that.

Capa (2029) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JUN 30, 2014
Grabbed a 50cl can of this from some random shop in Beyoglu. I’m 95% sure this is the same thing because the mug of beer shape is on the can same as on the bottle in the photo (label reads "Brewmaster’s Draft Beer" or " Ustasindan Fiçı Bira"). The can is actually pretty cool. The label, which wraps around the entire can, is made to look like a beer barrel and the can itself even bulges out at the barrel bands. Sadly, that is the highlight of the beer. Clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Thin, overly carbonated body. Flavor? Aroma? Haven’t found ’em yet. In all seriousness- I haven’t found an aroma or tasted anything of note. No hops, no malt, just tingly bubbles. But that can sure is cool.

500ml bottle - thanks Marduk!
Woh - that’s a Stary Melnik Iz Bochonka bottle! (Yeah, and Stary Melnik is Efes Russia...) Pale. Sweet cornflakey aroma, pretty harmless. More harmful in the mouth. Starchy, dry, flour, walpaper paste. Sweetish later, but very cardboardy right from the start. Finish chemical and harsh. Watery, fizzy, crap pale lager. Do not want.

Marduk (2718) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 5, 2014
500ml bottle (thanks Mari & Kalm). Clear yellow color. Small size, chunky white head, stays. Sweet, nettles, cardboard in aroma. Cardboard, grainy, papery, watery taste. Long lasting cardboard in aftertaste. Nasty not drinkable body.
