Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, - NOV 25, 2013
Keg pint. I had tasting notes for this before but lost them, so here we go again. Pours a clear fizzy golden with quite a nice lasting white head. Looks like a thirst quencher. Aroma is close to nil, very light grassiness to it. Taste is not that bad, a little watery, but some reasonable fruity sweetness and a slightly floral grassy bitterness. Lively carbonation, with a watery enough aftertaste, but a very refreshing palate to it. Overall, it didn’t fare as poorly as I thought. Possibly one of the ever so slightly better macro lagers, but still wouldn’t drink it by choice.

Towey1989 (1748) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2016
Keg at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, some bready malts and slight grass. Taste of grain, some bready malts, a hint of cardboard and slight grass. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, slight grassy, bready bitterness in the finish. It’s not a bad lager, a lot maltier and fuller bodied than its Dutch counterparts. Still average though.

datrael (179) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Aromat lekko trawiasty, nieco słodowy, ogólnie słaby. W smaku dość pustawo, gdzieś tam pojawiają się akcenty słodowe, pod koniec nieco drożdżowe. Ogólnie bardzo wykastrowane piwo, pozbawione jakiegokolwiek charakteru w smaku, zapachu i wyglądzie.

La peculiaritŕ di questa birra č il sapore identico in ogni parte del globo la si assaggi, grazie all’esportazione dei principi chimici dell’acqua che la compongono. Detto ciň, ha toni banali e poco persistenti, dissetante.

Geezer, what happened to Heineken? I remember it being so much better with so much more character and not so soft.

UjoKlobasa (536) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 2, 2016
5l keg. Pale golden color, thick white head. Aroma of alcohol, vodka, little malt and trace amount of hops. Alcohol aftertaste in finish. Very bad.

Shuffle (26) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 1, 2016
A világ legjellegtelenebb ízű söre. A dizájn tetszik, de az új 0.4l rejtett áremelés már kevésbé. Adalékanyagmentessége dicséretes.és a reklámjai is tetszenek. A legnagyobb: "Megteremtettük a víz ihatóbb formáját"

Cerveza sin pena ni gloria, una más, poco sabor, poco olor, suave, con mucho gas...
