flemmingwillum (1036) - Nysted, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2014
Rating #1014, flaske fra Netto i Nysted. En ret kedeligt udseende brun øl. Meget bitter smag med en masse karamelmalt og ekstremt hård kulsyre - og det er det, mere er der ikke i denne øl. Utroligt ensformig og kedelig, men heldigvis med en ok smag. Medium tykkelse.

trapez (1529) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle. Aroma of malt, raisins and bread. Dark amber colour with beige head. Lots of malt in flavour but nicely spiced and still mild.

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2014
Flaske: Mørk ravfarvet øl med et fint lille skumhoved. Duft af sød malt og let krydderi. Smagen er meget sødlig næsten nisseølsagtig. Lige som jeg kan lide dem. Passer godt til vinteren.
