Nitro on tap at Jungle Jim’s. Pours medium brown with a tan head. Aromas of hops smooth nitro creaminess. Bitter crisp bite nothing to thrilling.

Werckmeister (2042) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAR 5, 2016
0,33l bottle at home bought at Merkur Hoher Markt. BB 26/09/2016. copper clear color, small off-white head. smells fruity, some sweetness, plums, light cardboard, hmm, quite average smell. light to medium body, medium carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes lightly fruity, plums, some sweetness, light bread, light cardboard, light tobacco. finishes bit dry and lightly bitter with notes of tobacco and light fruit notes. OKish, but not very exciting.

Denne Kilkenny har et klart rřd-brunligt udseende med et tykt hvidt skum. Řllen har en sřd aroma og smager sřdt af karamel med en maltet smag. Lav karbonering.

cervmagpt (647) - PORTUGAL - FEB 17, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L5281GF002. AROMA: grainy malt aroma with very faint background caramel. no hop aroma discernible. APPEARANCE: ambar orange color and cristal clear. moderate to moderate-low off-white head with medium to medium-low retention. TASTE: low malt flavor with a slight grainy note and a faint caramel presence. low bitterness with no hop flavor and a semi-dry finish. PALATE: low body with medium-high carbonation. no diacetyl detected. OVERALL: an irish red ale with less caramel present, less bitterness and less diacetyl, resulting in less body. average, nonetheless.

Nonshaugen (418) - Fetsund, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2016
50 cl can. Nice hiss at the opening. Pours pretty much like a Guinness Draught, but the beer itself is clear golden brown, medium, tan coloured, creamy foamy head created by using nitrogen instead of co2. Aroma of caramel and nuts Mouthfeel is silky and smooth, low level of carbonation. Flavours of caramel, toffee and bread, quite sweet at the end. Just an average beer to me, don’t like it that much, to be honest.

Bierdimpfe (208) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Veiled dark copper Extra persistent, thick and creamy, half a finger beige head, lasting more that 20 minutes! Strong legs and a gorgeous pouring with amazing activity slowly revealing the beer. Faint aromas and flavors of toffee, grainy toasty bread, nuts and floral spices with a hint of fruits. Sweet smell but a sharper crisp taste. Creamy medium body and weak carbonation. Short and faint and quite clean finish with a roasted slightly bitter aftertaste. Overall : Visually stunning and...poor in flavors. The craft is good with a nice freshness, but it’s a very soft beer that is overly accessible.
