bartlebier (2483) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2015
0,5L bottle, 5,2% bb09/2015, courtesy of calisky, grand merci! Accompaniment to Armenia’s vaguely cryptic genocide lamento during Eurosong 2015. Surprisingly fresh and near-floral nose, grasses, with some corn starch mixed in. Taste stays clear with notes of aroma hops and some malt hay character, before it restreats into a round starchiness. Better and more drinkable than expected.

Manslow (336) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 16, 2015
Pite w Armenii. Butelka, alk 4,5%, piana szybko znika, kolor słomkowy, gaz mocny, goryczka lekka. Piwo postsowieckie, nic szczególnego.

Dzhigga (209) - Kirov, RUSSIA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle. 4,5%. Yellow color with medium unsteady head. Aroma of malt with some notes of floral hops. Taste is lightly sweet, malty. Almost no bitterness, finish is short. Nevertheless OK beer for summer.

trapped (1208) - New York City, TURKEY - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle. Pale yellow with very small white foamy head, no discernible aroma, medium carbonation, bitter yeast taste, abrupt finish. Quite terrible.

alex_leit (218) - Minsk, BELARUS - FEB 14, 2015
0.5 l bottle, 4.5% abv. Copper-gold lager with white foam. Grain and malt aroma and taste with minimal hop, 5.2 % version was more hoppy and tasty.

Kristall-König (2415) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JAN 29, 2015
Danke an WillemsUrenkel für dieses Bier. Getreidig, hopfiger Geruch ohne Fehlaromen. Beginnt mild getreidig, hopfig. Mitte stärker hopfig, überraschend aromatisch. Abgang recht bitter, leichte Malzeinschübe. Überraschend gut - trank ich das gleiche Bier?

Beerdedone (2901) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma was grainy with corn and skunk. Flavor was sweet bitter and watery with grains, corn, and grass.

WillemsUrenkel (841) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2015
0,5 l bottle. Imported via a french company and bought in an armenian food shop in Hamburg, Germany. Mid golden in the glass, small fine white head. Strange fruity sweet on the nose. Starts chemical fruity, hay, flat bitterness, no real taste. Not good.

maxwelldeux (4131) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear light orange-tan color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose has corn and pure awfulness mixed in roughly equal amounts. Taste is even worse than the nose, as if that were possible. Yay country ticks...

vipinvelp (2691) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2014
Clear light yellow, small white foam ring. Malty aroma, weak taste. Light malty, some metal notes. Not the best beer. (Velp 201412)
