KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2007
Very similar to the III version of the beer, they probably brew them to one strength and then dilute as appropriate. Decent balance between hops and malt, refreshing dry finish.

RichardGretton (4296) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2007
Draught @ Helsinki Train Station, Finland. Dark golden beer with a light head. The aroma is lightly dry with a light malty finish. The flavour is weakly dry at the beginning with quite a bitter finish. Overall an average bitter/gentlely malty lager.

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 7, 2007
Canned 50cl. It pours a yellow beer with a small white head. Sweet malty aroma, grassy, grainy with notes of hops, apples. Slighlty tart, a hint of sourness. Some oily elements in the nose. Dominating malty sweet flavours. Oily. Medium bodied, again a hint of sourness in the taste. The taste is mainly of malt and grain. Watery. Poor finish. It’ s not that good, but nothing really bad either.
