Palme (3635) - Bergen, - OCT 1, 2012
0.33l bottle brought home from Braai Tapperij de Mug, Middelburg. This one pours a crystal clear golden body that has a small blonding white head that immediately sticks to the sides of the glass. At first it smells a bit metallic and almost like boiled cabbage! That’s a bit of a downer.. But after a while I get smoky sausage-tones in this aroma. Yeah, smoky salami blended with boiled cabbage in a metallic kettle. That’s a first I guess, and the strange part is that it’s actually not horrible at all. The taste is nice and typical for it’s genre. A bit alcohol and yeast, white sugar with a gentle fruity-metallic hint. Yeah, it definitely tastes like it should this one, and it has a near burning alcohol aftertaste. Can’t complain. 13.07.2012

midovark (222) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - APR 25, 2016
0.33 l bottle from a random Spanish supermarket. Deep golden color, no head (didnt expect any tho). Wheat, orange and alcoholic scents in the aroma (the alcohol got stronger with warming). Wheat, orange, citrus and alcoholic sweet taste with short, sweet finish. Medium body, lively carbonation. Decent.

The_Osprey (5288) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
Bottle shared in London. As ’Judas’, 8.5%. Was interested to try this as it came strongly recommended by a friend. Dark yellow or light orange, clear, lightly sparkling, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is honey, sweetcorn, wafer. Body is light, foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is barbequed corn on the cob, sweet and boozy, honey, drying alcoholic finish. A fairly standard Belgian strong ale. Not bad.

Aroma is considerable diacetyl, butterscotch, apple, some caramel. Flavour is composed of caramel, toffee, diacetyl, tangy green apple. Palate is semi sweet, highish carbonation, frothy. Tangy finish. High boost.

Gangstergafje (479) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2016
The beer has some nice but simple looks. There is a nice layer of rough white foam on top of the beer. The foam collapses quickly, but a tiny bit of roam remains. The smell is nice. There is a life fruity banana aroma, combined with a bittersweet almondy alcohol smell. It has a smell reminding me of Belgian Tripel beers. There is also a nice tiny sweet candy aroma. There is a good balance between bitter and sweet notes. There is also a yeasty soreness in the smell. The taste is slightly less. The balance is a little of towards the side of bitterness. There is also a little meat like metal flavor. The aftertaste is also a little disappointing, but not bad. The palate is nothing special.

Leighton (17195) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Daniel. Pours totally clear gold with a frithy, white head. Rich doughy bread in the nose, faint butterscotch, light yeast. Medium to heavy sweet flavor, creamy and sugary, some yeast, doughy white bread. Full bodied with with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish, a little boozy, with notes of apple sauce, doughy bread, pale grains. Pretty so so.

Scopey (11338) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle thanks to Dirty D. It pours clear golden - amber with a thick white head. The aroma is sweet, white bread, cheap grain, buttered white bread and cereal. The taste is crisp, sweet, cheap white head, banana, candy, cereal, grainy, alcohol boost and some tang with a sweet, bready finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. A bit sweet and bready. Good to get boosted I spose, but I wouldn’t drink this on the reg.
