Half-liter bottle, $1.50 @ Binny’s Bolingbrook. Let us now tick off Armenia just because I found a bottle cheap. Let us also be politically incorrect by prying the cap with an Efes bottle opener. Yeek! Smell of skunk and piss in the green bottle. Doesn’t let up in the glass, but instead airs out some adjuncts. Still, a clear golden yellow with a tight white head. Well, what did I expect for the price. Taste is corn additives knocked back with bittering agents. Each swallow makes me worry about this stuff. I notice the label doesn’t go to the pretext of reprinting any medals from old beer festivals.

bartlebier (2536) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2015
50cl bottle, merci Calisky. Skips the sulphur upon opening, diving right into packet dessert aromas like pear syrup pudding, corn porridge, vanilla custard - oddly not all that repulsive. Tastes less than its 6,4% potential, but manages to deliver a drinkable, exotic interpretation of an imperial pilsner witout too much of the abv wafts, focussing instead on dryish barley and corn layers going into pear compote and more vanilla. Managed to down the full bottle without gaaging or a day after vengeance, hence not all that shabby.

Baramba (403) - ITALY - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle. Yellow with small white head. Aroma of malt and straw. Sweet taste, watery, dry

Alengrin (3132) - BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2014
Strongish Armenian lager with snow white head, golden colour and thin malt sweet taste, bit lightstruck aroma, grassy hops in an otherwise rather thin finish. I had worse in this style, I must admit.

Calisky (1618) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 10, 2014
Couleur dorée ambrée, petite mousse blanche. Nez assez malté. Gout malté doux. Corps huileux sans carbonation. Fin avec petite amertume, mais bière bien légère en gout pour une strong/imperial.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2014
500ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: Moderately sweet malt. A little honey, some moderate hop bitterness. Appearance: Slightly hazy, bronze body with a very thin white cap. Slow, moderate amount of visible carbonation. Medium lacing. Taste: Moderate amount of malt with an equal amount of hoppy bitterness. Very light, subtle sweetness. Palate: Medium body, with a medium+ length on the finish, which ends on moderate bitterness. Overall: Actually a really nice lager! Great hop bitterness rounds it all out. Tasty stuff!

brokensail (12899) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle @ Bobby’s house. Golden pour, some white foam. Skunk. Sheesh. Paper, apple, corn, pear, and water. Not pleasant. Flat, skunky, sweet palate. Some apple, paper, corn, and water. A bit of pear, sulfur, and a light bitterness.

nealblind (1028) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Amber hazy pour some white head quickly disappears. Smells of roast grains, lychees and stinky hops. Tastes sweet like honey, lychees and somewhat herbal bitter hops. Somewhat strong carb. Some strong alcohol coming through. Unrefined but pretty good... better option that malt liquor for getting you drunk.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2012
A clear golden colored beer, a very small white head. Aroma of some malt and some fruits. The taste of sweet malt, some hop with laurel. The aftertaste is sweet ass well with some bitter.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 22, 2012
Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of jaghana. My version was at 5.2 ABV? A different beer? Golden colored with a white head. Pretty clean malty nose. Decent taste. Some sticky spotty chunky lace. Low bitterness. Malt accented. Unmemorable finish. Boring and without major flaws. Thanks a lot jaghana!
