Alphadelic (2164) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Very disappointing head. The aroma is slightly stale pale malts. Nice carbonation and a reasonable depth of flavour. Slightly fruity with hints of sugars and caramel. Not too keen on the finis which I found a little soapy and metallic. Quite a poor one.

Just got the beer for a bit of a thirst quencher, but thought I’d rate it for the hell of it. What can I say, straight forward Kolsch. Not much to it my opinion. Slight floral hops on the nose, which vanish on the palate. Some sweet malt, almost subtley candied on the nose, once again disapear. Slight breadiness in the flavour. Crisp carbonation. If you want a clean frosty one on a hot day, a tall blonde lets say, here’s your girl - just don’t expect any interesting conversation.

delnoche (504) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - MAY 24, 2009
50cl bottle poured into an altbier glass. Straw yellow with about one finger head. Smells very hoppy. Flavor is rather refreshing. All I can really taste is hops, not overly bitter though. Not a bad brew.

Very pale, grainy nose is faintly sourish, nutty flavor with light bitterness. Highly quaffable.

Quack-Duck (9120) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2009
bottle. Clear golden yellow, large white head, fruity nose. Medium-bodied, malty background with nice fruity flavours and a atouch of bitter and aromatic hops. Well-balanced, fruity and really pleasant.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2009
Pours straw yellow with medium head. Grassy aroma. Muted hops, slightly pils-like and quite anonymous. Decent, but not good.
