Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2013
0.33l bottle from trade with MisoW. This one has a nice clear deep copper colored body and a medium sized fading almost fizzy off-white top. The nose is as expected not to extreme, but true to the type with a soft grainy and sweet aroma blended with some boiled corn, English bitterness and a nice caramel sweetness. Definitely unlike any other marzen I’ve had in the taste. It’s somehow fruity with lots of over ripe fruits, some strong wet rocks flavor also here, as is a good earthy bitterness. It’s light oily - almost a bit watery on the mouthfeel and the carbonation level is average. Nothing to exciting the flavor really, but a well crafted easy to drink (though a bit boring) beer. Polotmavý for the win! 14.09.2013

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle 330 ml, thanks to MisoW! Poured into a tulip. ABV 5.5% Pours an amber coloured beer with a good sized, thin head, off white in colour, with average retention, leaving light lacing on the glass and a thin line around the glass’s wall. Pleasant aroma, very malty, kind of grainy too. Little bit of caramel, soap, lighly roasted malts. Very hoppy taste, quite bitter from the very start. Lighty acidic too but this actually makes it better. Taste reminds of a good pilsner, only more malty, plus there is this aforementioned acidity that bring to mind white grapes. Light roasted malts on the finish. Medium thin body, nice carbonation. Mildly dry palate. Overall a quite interesting beer, surely with high drinkability.

MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle, thnx to MisoW! Cheers man! Pours a headless, clear amber beer. There is a small amount of head, but that just disappeared before I even put the bottle back on my desk. Aroma is caramel, fruity yeast and a very faint touch of citric hops. Flavor is medium sweet and fruity with a malty backbone in it. Palate and mouthfeel are a bit watery and flat. Must be lack of carbonation. Very easy drinkable and enjoyable. Ok beer.
