trapped (1782) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 26, 2015
Draught. Bright yellow with small frothy white head, doughy aroma, low carbonation, sweetish malt taste, thin body, abrupt finish with little hops effect. Not a great brew.

Aurelius (4834) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2015
Good label and heavy longneck. Misty darkish gold, stiff white head. Malty wet straw aroma. Sweet, strong, reminds me of Soviet bloc strong lagers. Warming. Malty, astringent, lightly fruity finish. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Definitely filtered. Very smooth body, crisp taste, sweet flavor immediately, cotton candy, very mild hop bitterness, good carbonation. Alcohol is present for sure. Would be a nice warm weather beer as it is refreshing, but not watered down.

superspak (3980) - Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2014
330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy bright orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, honey, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Mediocre aromas with notes of big fruity/earthy yeast and moderate pale malt sweetness; with poor balance. Way too much fruitiness in the nose. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, honey, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, honey, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very mediocre flavor profile with poor balance of pale malt sweetness and some significant fruity yeast ester flavors; with some moderate cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy and fairly slick mouthfeel that is a bit rough. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a really poor strong lager style. Just all around unbalanced and overly fruity in flavor; and pretty difficult to drink with the odd/rough mouthfeel. This tasted really similar to apple cider with all the fruitiness. It was not a drain pour, but it was close.
