HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2008
Bottle (300ml). Shared with blankboy and biegaman via trade with gloublouburp. Best before NovemClear deep amber, off-white head. Light matly aroma, slightly herbal. Pungent, sweaty taste, iron, minerally, honey and paper - not great. Light, minerally mouthfeel - sort of harsh, not something I’d want again.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2009
In short: A rather bland Belgian amber ale with a light spicy touch. Not offensive, not interesting
How: Bottle 330ml, about 1 year old but still before best-before date
The look: Almost clear dark golden body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose of bakery with a light spicy touch. Taste is surprisingly bland, less tasty than expected. Grainy malts, bread crust, brown sugar, sweetened dried fruits. Winter beers spices (ginger, cloves, cinnamon, others) that fortunately in small quantities. A bland but not offensive seasonal winter beer. Nothing to improve my winter mood, this time of year when like all Montrealers I’d like to tie-up Al Gore and make him eat his slide-show.

<i>Bottle (330ml) shared with HogTownHarry and biegaman -- courtesy of HogTownHarry.</i> Pours a murky orange-amber with tons of sediment and no head. Mild malty aroma with fruit and spices. Watery and dull sweet malty flavour. Light to average bodied. Very ’meh’.

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2004
Bottled (BB 04/2006)
Nut brown, creamy small tanned head. Floating yeast particles. Ashy, malty nose - quite weak. Medium-bodied, malty brew, which hides ABV very well. Dry, grassy hops. Mouthfeel is oily with leather. Eay to drink but quite neutral.

omhper (23428) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2007
Bottled. Hazy amber, brief head. Aroma of ripe fruits. Sweet with clean, hard mouthfeel. Very drinkable for it’s size - I can’t believe it’s this strong. Leaning towards being light bodied. Also rather light in flavours - there are some dusty ripe apples but no bitterness.
