BeerBaboon (1564) - FINLAND - APR 19, 2011
Ruohoinen, makeahko ja liukas. Hieman hedelmäisyyttä ainakin tuoksussa. Ihan ok olut nautittavaksi työpäivän jälkeen.

ClubGonzo (4026) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2011
Bottle. Pours a light lager body with the brief cameo appearance of a head, lasting about 3 seconds. Nose is pale malts and some dry hops, kinda faint. Taste is silky smooth pale malts, backed by a sweet, corn-like aftertaste and some pretty neutral noble hops. Slick mouthfeel, typical of the style. A pretty OK German Helles beer on the sweet side of the scale.

asheft (2509) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2010
[bottle] Sweet malty aroma with not a small amount of green apple. Crystal clear gold under a spread of white bubbles and a thin ring. Intriguingly sour base malt flavour that does not seem to come from infection, very crisp with a medium bitterness that comes in late to hug the tongue. Light body, medium carbonation. Unusual and refreshing.

Swing-top bottle. Mildly sweet barley malt and weedy hops aroma. Golden yellow color with small head. Slightly sweet barley malt and lightly bitter weedy grass hops flavor. Medium body. Okay - not great.
