pivnizub (10186) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2016
Bottle(the label claims:"brygget og tappet af Gravity Brewing Sal, Lebanon(!)"): Hazy, orangey-golden, small and stable off-white head; dry herbal and slightly grapefruity nose with a mild, but distinctive sweet-malty and corny(?) background; moderate to solid dry bitter flavour, quite light bodied for a beer of 5.5%, tart MF; dry bitter and slightly yeasty finish, a malty sweetness is barely detectable. A neither/nor brew…

bartlebier (3507) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2015
330ml as "Kissmeyer West Coast Pale Ale", 5,5%, - brewed & bottled at Gravity Brewing, Lebanon (? - 2nd entry?), 19/11/2014 - exp. 19/11/2015. - A tad old maybe, as imported by Rudat, but held up well: some cheesy hops in a peach compote in aroma, yoghurt and blossom, going into indeed into a sort of less precise, bitter and yeastier version of SNPA: candied orange and peach, yoghurt, bitter blossom. Well-composed, odd Lebanon small-batch contract brew with some flabby elements by one of the Scandinavian-US scene’s grand seigneurs.

(bottle, 33cl, Kissmeyer West Coast Pale Ale, 5.5% abv) Almost clear, amber to copper colour with a slightly beige and loose foamy head. Biscuity malty aroma with notes of caramel and flowery and fruity hops including notes of peach and ripe pear. Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Biscuity cara-malt character with a good dash of drying resin-spicy and fruity hops; bitter and mildly sweet cara-malty finish with a resiny and slightly fruity tail. 28.IV.15

DraftDodger (1121) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2015
Copenhagen 16/8 2015. 33 cl bottle from SuperBrugsen. Very minimalistic look - sold as "local production" in the supermarket. Pours hazy orange with fluffy white head. Settles as 0,3 cm layer of foam with some lacing. Aroma is intense citrus with some sweet notes of exoctic fruit. A little acidic. Medium carbonation. Taste is rather bitter with lemon and citrus providing sourness. Dry finish with bitter aftertaste. Fresh summer beer if you enjoy bitter sour beer.

Bottle from Kihoskh. Fruity, candy-like smell. Similar fruity taste, some apples, medium bitterness. Weird hop aroma. Drinkable though.
