Poured from 330mL bottle. Clear straw yellow with white head. Grainy yeast aroma with mild skunk. Taste is a sweet cereal (like cheerios with added sugar). Light body.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Arielís place. Thanks Tom L. Pours yellow with a small head, aroma of honey, caramel and butter, flavor of india, malt, bizarre and not tasty, light bodied

drowland (7881) - Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2013
8/26/13. Giant bottle at Passage 2 India. Love random ticks. Dark golden pour with a small off-white head. Light aroma, straw and floral aspects, a hint of apple, not nearly as offensive as expected. Light flavor, straw, hay, a touch of apple and floral aspects. Went down well with my spicy chicken vindaloo.

Clear straw with a small head that disappears quickly, no lace. There are fine bubbles rising, but nothing else of interest. Taste seems more like corn than malt, somewhat sweet; carbonation appears, but isnít able to balance. I suppose this would work on a hot day, but not if I am wanting to savor it. Not recommended.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Indeed, very pale in color with a decent head. Smells of brisk wet hay with a touch of candy. Medium nectar with good carbonation. A malty brew, slightly sweet. No bittering on the finish. Actually not bad when compared to those eastern european strong lagers. This one actually tastes fresh, not old world skanky.

DSG (11505) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Arielís place. Thanks Tom L. Clear golden. Aroma of acetone and a bit of DMS. Sweet flavor, a bit honey-ish, with a bit of graininess, acetone and alcohol. Light-bodied. Yuck.

Very little head, clear gold body. Aroma grainy and chemicaly. Taste of chemicals and solvents

Meh, not terrible but not much better. A bit fruity and watery, not my cup of tea.

Not much to say pours light gold. Aroma of malt, not much hoppiness. Crisp carbonation and thin mouth feel -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
