DuffMan (6514) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2010
Supercan. Pours a clear golden with an average white head. Sweet grainy aroma, candyish even. Sweet grainy flavours, odd glue flavour, cloying. Harsh mild burn in the finish. PISS!

Eructoblaster (2955) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
Can - 500ml. Limpid amber body with average carbonation and a thin off-white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with spicy hints. Taste carries some fruity notes. It is rather bland and leaves a bad alcohol aftertaste.

KyotoLefty (6172) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 29, 2010
50 cl can. Drinkable, but not very good. Way too sweet. Basically a dark double-like beer that is a little more red than brown. Possibly posing as a Scotch Ale. Not much taste except the sweetness, with a bit of caramel and alcohol, though drinks easy for 8.4%. Cheap, strong swill.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Pours a deep dark gold color. Aromas of fruit, malt, a touch of hops, and apple. Flavor big strong malt, hops, and a touch of menthol like quality. Strong malt aftertaste.

Abio (1551) - Waasland, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2010
Don’t really know why they call this one "red", cause I have other toughts about that color. Looks more orange-brown in my opinion. Fruity aroma’s, a bit spicy. Same with the taste. Not my kind of beer, but drinkable. Does not taste like 8,4% alcohol, goes inside to quick and easy. A bit to much like soda.

DSG (5634) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 26, 2010
Bottle. Nice clear deep red with a small but stable beige head. Aroma of malt, fruits, caramel, some fruit candies, spicy hints and some alcohol. Sweet flavor with caramel, honey hints and light fruitiness. A bit of alcohol towards the finish. Medium-bodied. Too sweet but still OK.
