TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Pours dark amber with a fully receding off-white head. Notes of sweet carmelized wort, brown sugar, plums, apple, and bitter herbs. Full bodied with lively carbonation.

Bosskie (407) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2014
Beautiful reddish golden transparent beer with a nice head. Smell is heavily malty with a strong apple caramel sweetness. Some clove and pepper and a touch of bitterness. Taste is bitter watery. Sweetish alcoholic with a strong fruitiness. Quite OK but a bit strong for my taste.

bottle, from getraenke oase if memory serves me right. clear golden with a modest white head; aroma of grass, butterscotch and a hint of white grape; nicely balanced with some tinny bitterness, lightly buttery texture and some toffeed sweetness

kerenmk (2422) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks troubles. An old bottle. Clear amber, white head. Malty, some cardboard aroma, bitter and a little diacetyl in the mouth. Light body, buttery finish.

Theydon_Bois (9116) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle shared at Chriso’s post GBBF minidig, 16/08/14. Clear golden with moderate off white spotting and edgework. Nose is pale malt, straw, light vegetals, fart, citric notes. Taste follows, bready pangs, cereals, pale malt. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. Fails to deliver anything for 6.5%!

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle at Wunderbar. Nifty shape; haven’t seen many like it before. But it’s a bright, totally clear green one. The beer itself pours a clear, bright gold without much head at all, just some negligible wisps of film and a partial, razor-thin ring. Aroma of toasted and doughy malts, grass, straw, and bits of nuts and earth. The flavor is way sweeter than anticipated, just really sweet and malty; some balancing straw, earth, almond, and a dash of spice. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a malty, sweet mouthfeel. Not bad, but too sweet and not really my thing.

Abijen (1498) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2014
Pours a golden clear beer with a good white head. Smells malts, honey. Tastes honey, malts and yeasts. Very sweet. Average carbo, thin body and a sticky texture.

Bork (241) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Slightly flat, sweet and malty with a notable alcohol presence appearing in the finish. Not bad but looks better than it tastes.

KoNrRiI (475) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2014
0.33 bottle. Clear, dark amber color and a medium, white head. Simple, delicate aroma of hops and malts, seems very much like a typical pale lager. Taste is malty but with some slight, hoppy bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is much sweeter and somewhat fuller than the flavor. Overall the beer has a nice palate but other than that it seems hackneyed and mediocre.
