Lowenbrau (2943) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 25, 2012
On tap at Früh am Dom. Cereal aromas, pale gols, clear. Regular white head. Light bodied, tastes malty and some astrigent, with some hints of hop resins. High carbonation. Extremely easy to drink. This added to the typical 20cl "stange" glass makes impossible to have just one...

mzaar (2557) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2012
Mediumstort skum ovanpå en ljusgul öl. Doftar koriander och äpple - fräscht. Basset´s vingummi i smaken, samt svag beska. Okey, men rätt tråkig.

Keg. Light amber body with a medium white head. The nose is red apple, faint sweet grains. Light malty smooth taste, lightly sweet, uncomplicated. Some more apple and syrup. Clean. Light carbonation, crisp. Boring. Overall, OK. I don’t know much about this style.

mile (3714) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle. Golden, small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty - faintly grainy and lightly sweetness aroma, light grassy hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - faintly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, light grassy hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty - lightly grainy and dryish, light grassy hoppyness. Bit watery kölsch - lacks character.
