LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 11, 2007
Bevuta alla spina al John Martin a Busalla; colore rosso scuro, aroma floreale molto pronunciato e simile a quello della Gordon Five (assaggiata ieri sera). Sapore tuttavia un poco più intrigante, dolciastro e con finale scarsamente luppolato, ma non spiacevole sebbene un poco artificioso. Corpo mediamente acquoso, frizzantezza poco pronunciata; buonina...

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2007
Bottled. Deep amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is fruits, alcohol and some malty and quite hoppy hints too. Flavour is the same. I would have guesses the style for a fruitish Malt Likka, but apparently it’s an ale...

Lubiere (10438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2006
Reddish amber ale with a thick moka head, overflowing (from a can???). Aroma odf sweet beet juice,caramel and light sulfur notes. In mouth, a sweet butterscotch, with a rather dry alcohol finish, short and sweet. Overall, a sweet cloying beer, in line with other fine malt liquors made by John Martin. The high class eurobums will love this. Bieropholie imports.

Sept, 2007 330ml bottle from Carrefour, France. A soft, sweetish strong beer with mild spice notes. Alcohol fumes. It’s a little rough round the edges, but is easy drinking and mostly quite pleasant. It’s possibly a strong lager rather than either a Scotch Ale or Barley Wine. I detect few ale notes. [2.4]
Jan, 2013 500ml can from Carrefour in Tamur, Belgium. Cheap can of strong lager. Amber coloured with malty flavours. An Ambree or Amber lager or Vienna lager, depending on which country it’s brewed in. Quite soft. Whiskey aroma and flavour notes from some added artificial whiskey flavouring. Sweet caramel notes. Pleasant and easy drinking. [2.6]

On tap in Italy. Sweet caramel and red berries. A little dryness in the finish, but not very pleasant.
