jimhilt (2469) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly to ring, leaving some lace. Crystal clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Slight hoppy nose. Flavor is balanced with hints of caramel. 330ml bottle €4.50 at Hotel Ivalo in Finland; Hartwall is part of Heineken N.V. From my notes - 7/12/2008.

Bamsen78 (4388) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear light golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops with a discreet skunky note. Sweetish, malty and grainy taste, offset by hoppy bitterness. Not bad but nothing revolutionary. Easily drinkable, though.

Iznogud (1541) - CROATIA - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle 500 ml, at he Famous Three Kings, London, about 6 years ago. I remember this as very drinkable and refreshing beer. Was surprised. If I get a chance I’d like to re-rate it.

MarkoNm (1429) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 25, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a nice frothy white head. Basic malty aroma, some notes of grains also present, not much hoppy notes to be picked up. Taste is slightly sweet at first, followed by a refreshing bitterness and crisp and dry finish. Not bad, quite drinkable really.

Dorqui (2144) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 30, 2004
Compact foam, of short persistence. Beautiful yellow color gold, fizzy. Flavor much elevated with a strong talk of malt, alcoholic. Bitter moderated with one medium persistence. Medium body.

JanVittrup (243) - København V, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2009
Very clear, golden, nice non-homogenous head with medium-small bubbles. Sweet/sugary aroma, no pee smell. Boring, too much alcohol taste, although not bad. Watery, prickly. A beer. Might as well be a Carlsberg. Why not. Can purchased in SuperBrugsen
