vinivini (1219) - BELARUS - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle with 4.5 ABV. Golden, clear, white airy head. Stays for a minute. Grainy faint aroma. Light body. Thin to oily. The taste is unexpectedly hoppy. Very grassy, spicy. Some malts in the background. Long hoppy finish. Plain it is. Decent it is as well.

Grumbo (1216) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Thanks to MarkoNm for this bottle. Country #132 for me. Pours a hazy dark golden colour with a short lasting off white head. Aroma of corn and light malt. Quite heavy sweetness, minimal bitterness. Light body, sticky texture, average carbonation. Finish is sweet and slightly metallic. Good country tick, fair beer.

Koelschtrinker (16789) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 6, 2015
Wässriger Antrunk, in dem sehr mild ein herber Ton erkennbar ist. Erfrischend, dann aber trocken mit minimalem Getreide. Wässrig bleibend, zum Ende ein wenig intensiver, angedeutete Süße. Wie erwartet. 8/6/8/5/6/5

ffbot (339) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Smell is damp hay, grass, earth, basement, mainly yeast. Appearance was ok, dark autumn orange color. Taste is mainly yeast, gross. Bitter, nutty, really unpleasant. Palate is bad too, long residual nutty taste. Could this taste worse?
