KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 13, 2012
11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a clear golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that was mostly diminishing with poor spotty lacing. The aroma was lightly sweet with a light grain malt, floral and grassy hops and a sweaty yeast and had notes of caramel, honey, a slight fruity ester (apple I believe) and a mild medicinal scent. The taste was lightly sweet and very malty with light hints of caramel and honey from the start, and then had a mild taste of hops slowly work in to the mix with the finish having a mild fruity alcohol presence towards the end. The flavor hung on for an average time proceeding the swallow, with a slight alcohol sweetness and a more pronounced hoppy grain flavor that was left to linger on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body with a light syrupy texture and a medium carbonation. Overall this was a somewhat sweet fruity brew that had a good hop and grain taste along with a bold alcohol presence. Basically this was a tasty Pilsner with a kick...

Semi clear orange-ish amber color and a khaku head with good retention. Decent lacing. Taste is pure alcoholic paint thinner. Disgusting. Drain pour. 8.0 ABV is obvious.

Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head. Aroma and taste of light malt, floral elements, grass, hints of apple juice and white wine. maybe some pear? Musty. Finish is warming, sweet and malty. It’s really weird. Can’t say I’ve had anything quite like this. And in this case, that’s not a good thing.

darbeer75 (525) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Aroma: odd, fruity aroma with a strong backbone of corn and rotting apple juice; Appearance: pale straw, clear, with white head that dissipates fairly quickly; Taste: not quite as bad as it smells but almost; sickly sweet with apple juice finish; Palate: light bodied with medium, sweet finish; Overall: Yuck. A drain pour.

crossovert (11350) - Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2016
33cl bottle 8.8%abv. Fusel and grain aroma. Oxidized some fruit aroma. Flavor is boozy and oxidized, tastes like sherry, gross. Like a really bad HG malt.

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.

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.
