Douberd (3298) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2015
(Istak Malt (Natural)) Bottle 325 ml, served into a shaker. Non alcoholic, but new country! Deep amber colour on the body, crystal clear, with a small and thin white head on top, collapsing fast. Very malty and sweet aroma, prunes, syrup, some stewed fruits. Taste is sweet and mostly constists of malts. Sugar, syrup, some fruity notes. Thin body, carbonation on the low side. For what it is I expected it to be more offensive but it could be worse.

MarkoNm (1744) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 3, 2015
Trade with Douberd. Pours a clear amber brown color, topped with a small white head. Quite smelly malty aroma, some resin preence as well. Taste is sweet and watery, and definitely not nice or beer. At least it’s a new country.

vipinvelp (2897) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle from IP trade with Douberd, thanks. Clear amber, small foam. Sweet caramel aroma and even sweeter taste. Great rare country tick. (Velp 201506)

kerenmk (3368) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks DSG. Clear dark gold-brown with white film. Wort and sweet grape juice and paper aroma, sweet, cardboard and wort in the mouth. Light body, sweet finish.

DSG (8610) - Tel Aviv, - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’s place. Big thanks to Erzengel for this rare country tick! Clear golden with no head. Aroma of cardboard, cooked cereals and grapes. Sweet flavor with wet cardboard, cooked cereals and grape juice. Very thin. Pretty awful.

The_Osprey (3507) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Mar 2015 - "320+5ml" bottle. Clear reddy brown, lightly sparkling, small head doesn’t endure at all. Aroma is damp, slightly sour, maybe some coffee bean but very toned down. Body is medium, low-ish carbonation, foamy. Taste is sweet malts, like a thinner and less sweet version of ’Malta’. (1.6) I also tried the peach version, which is unrateable and is similar but has a pleasant peachiness to it. I would have given it (2.4). Neither are beers really.

Sigmund (5800) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2015
Shared 320 ml bottle at local tasting, thanks to Holmen1. Brown colour, low off-white head. Unpleasant aroma of unfermented wort, wet cardboard and damp basement. Thin body. Flavour of unfermented diluted wort, but not as sweet as I feared. Hardly any noticeable hops. Oh well, a new "beer" country for me ...

Shared bottle at RB/HD home at OGJ 03.03.15. Very pale and clear nutty brown. Exeptionally quickly disappearing off-white head. Sweet aroma of caramel and malt extract. Overly sweet taste, also with chocolate. Sodaish.
