A nice, nitrogen, cream ale. Very easy to drink and mellow on flavors. My only hope that it can be introduced across the U.S.

Alengrin (1025) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
The classic (and most commercial) Irish red, tasted from tap and from bottle. Warm copper colour as custom for the style, creamy, stable head. Caramel and toasted bread in the nose, dried fruits, dry taste with thin and smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation and toasted bitterishness in the finish. Okay for its style I guess, but nothing I can thoroughly enjoy.

Birra cremosa e interessante. Allíapparenza simile ad una Guinnes sorprende con il suo aroma persistente.

Tem uma aparÍncia muito interessante. Tem uma gravata maravilhosa mas depois de a provar... acaba por ser sensaborona. ... sem borbulhas para saborear.

Zarkam (398) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2014
330ml bottle from Tallinn. Clear dark reddish brown colour, small frothy mostly lasting off-white head, some lacing. Moderately malty aroma of hay, bisquit and toast with light earthy hops and a fair bit of fruitiness. Taste is initally Lightly sweet with a hint of acidity, turning into a lightly bitter longish finish with a slightly burnt feel. Medium body, oily texture softish carbonation. A fairly avereage but far from unpleasant ale.

HammerTroll (410) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 9, 2014
Clear dark amber color, nice thick tan head. It looks nice, but thatís it. Hints of caramel in the aroma. Texture is creamy and watery at the same time. Extremely flat. A big disappointment.

Moebbels (303) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2014
A clear very dark amber body with a thick, creamy white head that lasts forever. Nose has caramel and dark roasty malts. Taste is fairly dry and roasty with a lingering very dry finish. Carbonation feels extremely soft, almost flat. Palate is a bit thin and watery. A nice basic british beer.
