rosenbergh (6790) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2011
500 ml can. From finestshop.be.
Clear mahogany colour with small off-white head. Malty almondy alcohol accompanied with caramel sweetness in aroma. Flavour is pretty much the same. More alcohol but otherwise just malt and almond. Tiny hints of bitterness. Slighlty more tolerable than Silver one. The description is like a joke.

Benzai (8214) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2011
Bottle @ Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Dark red / brown colored beer. Fair smell. Short, dry finish. Even though it’s 8.4%ABV the beer misses body, it’s weak.

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2011
Can @ AD Delhaize, Brussels.
Nice, clear amber with a small, frothy, bubbly, white head. Aroma has mild caramel, viniousness, some red fruits. Medium to low carbonation, fair light mouthfeel. Flavour has mild sugary caramel, but really nothing more. Yeah! I want more!

Can. [thank you, Yespr]
Pours a clear, lightly red, brown. A fizzy off white head on top. Lacing in large blotches on my glass. Aroma is very sweet, some caramel, a little toffee and lots of alcohol. Light carbonation - making it rather oily. Quite dry flavour, very sweet, notes of strawberry, but very overwhelming alcoholic in the end.

Koelschtrinker (10643) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 23, 2011
Süffige süßlicher Beginn, später trockener und fruchtig, zudem etwas alkoholisch, weiter aber süß. Zunehmend künstlich, was in Teilen auch dem Alkohol zuzuschreiben ist. Nun laffer, auf den Aromen zum Beginn wird sich anscheinend ausgeruht – diese reichen aber bei Weitem nicht.Daher entsteht ein langweiliges, zum Ende hellmalziges Bier. Naja...10/7/8/8/5/7

draft@Highlander: clear, light amber colour with a red hue to it, tastes of medicinal alcohol, the cheapest of cheap whiskey plus lots of sweetness from caramel, sugar, nuts, rotting berries, wet moss, this is how I imagine what the slightly better moonshine taste like or perfume, oily texture, very bad overall

2004 Vintage@Kulminator, consumed in Feb. 2011: ouch, this clearly shouldn’t have been aged, I assume no one has simple ever ordered this before, looks kind of light, watery orange, hints of purple if you hold it up to the light, according to the bottle it should have a purple hue, tiny white head, smells like chlorine, swimming pool water basically, appallingly enough it also tastes like swimming pool water, chlorine, watery, with hint of caramel, malt & sugar at the very end, disturbing & weird, this really shouldn’t have been aged, I cannot imagine that this is how it was ever supposed to taste, very watery, seriously everything about this beer screams swimming pool water
