TheCametron (2369) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 4, 2012
Keg at Zly Casy. Hazy Golden with a white head. Lots of bitterness and a bit of sherbet flavour made this an interesting beer which I really enjoyed.

RexTalionis (3516) - FINLAND - OCT 6, 2012
Draught at Gallow’s Bird, Espoo. Poured pale copper in color with a very thin bubbly white head. Sweet butterscotch and velvet candy in aroma. Flavour is mostly butterscotch, some more sweet brown sugar and hints of very light hoppyness. Smooth and feels like velvet while drinking. Very enjoyable. Light hoppy finish. Nice one.

Bottle poured into a ceramic mug. I must have had an off bottle. Weird sweetness, some floral notes, and off grainy notes.

Draught @ Akkurat. Very hoppy kellerbier. Notes of gooseberries, lime - and with a refreshing bitterness. A bit one dimensional, otherwise good.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkel goldgelbes Bier mit leichter Trübung. Die Krone ist fein, flach und langlebig. Das Kellerbier duftet hefig und fruchtig zitronig, sehr spritzig. Der Antrunk erfolgt dann sehr herb würzig, zitrus-fruchtig und spritzig frisch. Die Säure legt sich zur Mitte etwas, man spürt mehr Hefe und es wird ein wenig fruchtiger, sprich süßer. Der Abgang ist ebenfalls angenehm zitrus-fruchtig, sehr frisch und spritzig insgesamt, dieses Kellerbier

TAR (2685) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2014 Numerous gravity pours at the brewpub and keller are markedly improved from my first few bottle samples years ago. Hopcentric and lemony with Spalt, yeasty, rustic, nice pils malt, good balance, pretty clean. Could use a touch more refinement, but all in all this is very lovely.

Bottle, Purchased at Landbierparadies in Nurnberg, Best Before 3/15/12, consumed in early November: Light chestnut. Fragmented ivory foam. Dirty nose of wort and grape and lesser notes of spicy licorice-tinged hops and an earthy dry maltiness. Obviously underattenuated. Soft carbonation. Opens with sharp earthy malts atop an overbearing base of residual sugar. Some graininess is apparent right from the start, which gradually heightens in intensity. Deeply earthy notes of sassafras, burnt wood and licorice root lend an unpleasant bitterness that clashes with the cleaner elements while virtually leeching every trace of saliva from the palate. Finishes with a caustic rubbery astringency and everlasting flavors of wort. Something is evidently awry here because this is severely underattenuated and sloppy. (5, 3, 5,3, 9 = 2.5)
