500 ml bottle in Iraq. Pours a clear yellow color with a fine fast to go white head. Aroma is skunk, skunk, skunk and fruit. The taste was not as bad as it smelled. Strange but refreshing. Palate was not too ofensive. Very strange stuff.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ Kiss The Kitchen Floor or better known as ZZT VI (2013): kindly shared by Benzai: small and thin white lacing on top of a clear yellow colored beer. The aroma is very one dimensional: very creamy and some butter. Not much else.
The flavours are not better than the aroma, actually the aroma is a tad better. There’s sweat that sets the tone, some malts and again that butter tone, though very light it’s present.
The aftertaste is malty with herbs and a light hint of sweat.
Low to medium carbo, soft light sparkling mouthfeel, light and pretty low body and a light creamy texture. Fun to tick but nothing interesting and there’s more shit to come...

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of malts, light hops, butter. Sweet malty flavour, dito finish.
Not too bad. Is it a ’traditional ale’? Thought it to be quite like a pale lager.
