KansaiBeerLvrs (2713) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 15, 2013
580 yen bottle from Umeda’s Oktoberfest(2012), 7% but it didn’t taste that strong. A mellow dark gold color with an interesting malty taste. Not bad plus I love the little sing-top bottles. A bit medicinal in flavor...

Jonb5 (415) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2013
330ml bottle, poured into Kasteel chalice. A: Pale amber, small fast disappearing head, minimal lacing, clear. S: Clove, banana, quite agreeable. T: Molasses, clove, banana, notes of hay,wheaty finish. M: Low carbonation, chewy texture, smooth. O: Initially I was slightly concerned by the absence of the trademark Flensburger "plop" (no sniggering) but this was pretty decent, although lacking multiple layers. Seemed more Bavarian than far northern German, I should have picked up a few more.

Honey pour with fizzy head. Vegetal corn aroma with a bit of spice. Metallic, sweet taste with the corn ctill coming thru. Unpleasant metallic finish. Not impressed.

330ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear pale gold with a thin white head. Malt and metal aromas, light spice. Taste has malt caramel sweetness, something astringent. OK, but not great.

Grima (2159) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle from Bierpost.com!
Pours strong golden yellow, clear, with flat head. Smells malty-sweet, spicy and floral hoppy. Starts with pale sweet malts, floral hops and some cereals. Goes into a musty-hoppy and sweet grainy finish.
