minutemat (4039) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2015
630ml bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, Dec 15, brought all the way back from Benin by Clement! Merci! Pours bright clear gold, foam head. Grassy aroma. Taste was surprisingly not that bad. Clean and perfectly drinkable, if grassy and slightly unremarkable. For what it is and where’s it’s brewed I could happily drink a few of these.

BlackHaddock (6102) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2015
63cl Bottle: shared between 5 at the December 2015 meeting of the Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group or whatever we call ourselves. Cheers Mat and his extended family for this new country tick for us all. Nice enough Lager actually, clear and bright golden look with the usual white fading head on top. Semi-sweet flavour with some grass and gain notes in both the aroma and taste. Would never have guest this came from Africa.

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle. It pours a clear, pale golden beer topped by a minimal sized white head. Grainy pale malts, some fruityness and a hint of pine cones in the aroma. Grass too actually. Medium to thin on the palate, with a soft carbonation. Some bitterness in the flavor, but it’s mostly grainy and fruity. Short finish. Bet it sort of works in the heat, but I’d like more bitterness, more taste and less grainy aromas and flavors. 140301
