Bottle with thanks to Nikos! Country 102. Pours a flat clear Amber, no head or lacing. Aroma is wort, malt sugars, toffee, grain. Flavor is medium plus sweet, no bitterness, like a flat malt soda. Medium body, no carbonation. Kinda gross.

I’ve already reviewed this previously; god knows where the rating went. Bought from a Persian shop on Hagley Road, years ago. Terrible, obv.

Butelka wypita w Uzbekistanie w 2014. Napój typu piwoniepiwo, trochę chlebowego aromatu i smaku.

Thx! for sharing DutchDrebus. 320 +/- 5 ml. (I kid you not!) bottle sampled @ ZZT XIII. Bizarre clear pale brown amber with zero head. Nose is this syrup bizarre awful medicinal sugar, watery with some dark bread. Taste is thin syrupy medicinal, hugely watery artificial syrup with watery bread. Very thin & watery. Awful. Like a really bad soda. Really, really bad though. No wonder people in Iran drink stuff like bootleg Heineken etc. when they go for beer plus illegal homebrew as well (likely).

caesar (6379) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle @ ZZT, small sample. Clear amber to copper color, short frothy head. Aroma of rye bread, sugary molasses and caramel. Supersweet in taste, rye bread. For a small sip it’s actually quite ok. Wouldnt dare drinking a whole bottle.

Martinus (4355) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2015
Clear amber colour, white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, cherry, Frysian (dark) rye bread (Fries roggebrood) loads of rye bread. Sweet malty flavour, caramel and rye. Sweet finish. Not bad actually.
(from 33cL bottle @ ZZT XII, ’Getting Joes’d to it’ Oirschot. Thanks for sharing, DutchDrebus!)

Douberd (4427) - 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.
