kiwianer (3413) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 5, 2013
The head is unrobust. It smells sweet-malty. The taste is cheap, sweet, malty. Not that good. 8/6/6/6/11/6

Panzerfaust (576) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - OCT 26, 2013
Found on a supermarket on Easter Island. Pours bright golden with a nice white head that diminishes rather quickly. Aroma is herbal with grasses mostly and some grainy backbone. Taste is slightly sweet with some marginal bitterness and a metallic hint. Body is medium and texture is oily. Overall, a decent heavy pale lager.

Zarkam (516) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2013
330ml bottle, clear amberish yellow colour, small frothy mostly lasting white head, average lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and bisquit, light to moderate hops with floral character. Taste is at first light sweet and acidic turning into a light bitter average finish with a slightly alcoholic feel texture is oily and carbonation lively, medium body. A rather unsurprising bulk lager, interestingly enough it had a distinct if alcoholic taste to it which I rarely notice in beers of this strength.

jookos (3062) - FINLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle@solstafir gig, nosturi. Pale golden, clear. Musty, slught corny malts on nose. Light medium body. Round clean malts, some metallic tones. Not really that bad for a plain lager, but as a beer overall quite dull, boring. Clean though, easy.

villevav (267) - FINLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Karhu IV A on väriltään kirkas ja kultainen, kuin mikä tahansa muukin vaalea lager. Kaadettaessa Karjala muodostaa yllättävän tiheän vaahdon. Ensikosketus ei ole erityisen miellyttävä, sillä tuoksussa on miedon maltaisuuden ja humalan katkeron lisäksi epämiellyttävää tunkkaisuutta. Ellen olisi vasta pessyt lasia, voisin luulla sen johtuvan lasista. Suutuntumaltaan Karjala on pienestä hiilihappoisuudestaan huolimatta nelosolueksi yllättävän kevyt ja jokseenkin vetinen. Maussa on samaa mietoa maltaisuutta ja kevyttä humalointia kuin tuoksussakin. Maltainen jälkimaku päättyy tunkkaisuuteen. Onhan tämä hieman tuhdimpaa kuin Karhu III, mutta etiketin perusteella olisin odottanut silti runsaampaa makua. Ei erityisen miellyttävä millään osa-alueella. Silti Karhu IV A on Suomen myydyin nelosolut.

suurjuust (1466) - ESTONIA - FEB 5, 2014
Clear golden yellow, medium white head, decent lacing, filmy retention. Nose has toasty malt, corn, sweet hints. Flavour is bready malt, cardboard, corn. Vague hoppy bitterness along with sweetness in the finish. Watery texture, thin to medium body, lively carbonation.
