tmrmwel (1665) - Bergen, - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours light yellow, with a finger thick head. Aroma is very slightly bitter, with some not too nice notes of cardboard and grass. Flavour is sweet with caramel and orange, as well as some spicy hops.

Erzengel (7324) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 26, 2016
On tap in Cyprus 🇨🇾 Awful stuff! The nose is like a toilet someone used for vomitting. The beer starts like old cardboard with metal. Hints of metallic grain, not much bitterness. Awful aftertaste... don’t know what happened to this beer - or does it have to taste like this?

Fatehunter (2124) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Pours a finger of head on a clear straw body. The aroma is lots of dry grains. The taste is sharp metallic bitterness and bit of malt sweetness. The texture is crisp but too fizzy. The higher carbonation and unremarkable flavor define this brew.

BlackHaddock (5849) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
33cl bottle on 30th Jan 2016: the first beer on one of my random International tasting sessions with myself. Poured into a stemmed tulip glass at home and shared with no one. Bright, clean and clear golden body with a full white crown on top. Corn/grain in the nose, taste is more bitter and hoppy than the aroma suggests. Refreshing and surprisingly good, crisp and sharp feel to the brew: ideal on a sunny beach I bet.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2015
250ml bottle my dad brought back from Cyprus. Pours a clear gold with thin white head. Aroma is grass and wet straw. Medium carbonation, watery and grassy taste but not bad. Better than how I remember Keo by a long way.

Golden pour with white head. More malty and complex then Keo. A refreshing pint.

LoFi (1707) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2015
Draught in a restaurant in Pernera. Golden, white head. Bready malt, some citrus, grass, hay, low bitterness. Nothing exceptional but works fine in 34 degree heat.
