BigBeer45 (1307) - Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2015
It smelled and tasted like beer, so, I gave it a go, this beer had a light to medium golden pour with some haze, this beer is not filtered and made a one to two finger white cover that receded to a ring and an island that covered most of the top, the nose had a bit of skunk when first opened, probably from the trip to America, it was shipped here in a light brown bottle, just a touch of the skunk was noticed afterwards but nothing that took away from the nose or flavor of the drink, it had aromas of light malt and bread, and a touch of cracker, light floral and grass hops with light citrus and bread sweetness, some small earth notes in the background, the flavors were bread malt with some hop bitterness, a touch of citrus and a light bread like sweetness, the finish had a light bitterness with malt following, the mouth feel was light and a touch watery, it was a little creamy and had average carbonation, a simple beer with a light malt nose and flavor.

Hazy greyed golden. Faltering ringed head after a decent swirl. Oaky lemon and oats nose. Peppery lemon initial taste. Fades quickly. Creamy malt, dry oats. Finish is lean bitter, more lemon and chalk and linger is a faltering bubbly bitterness.

bartlebier (2479) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2015
50cl fliptop downed while dehydrating entering the never-ending Belgian II/2015 backlog, bb04/2015. Misty yellowmpoiur, nice unpasteurised cap. Floral, "hopfenblumige" Tettnang foam, Keller proteins and spring meadow. Lovely fresh yeast character in taste, soggier white bready grains, then again fresh ¿Tettnang zing. Dry yeasty mouthfeel, pollen. Very refreshing and without flaws = excöllönt Southwestern Köller.

02.05.14: Bottle 0.33 l.
Jasnozłote, mętne piwo o grubej i puszystej pianie oraz słodowym zapachu. W smaku łagodne, orzeźwiające, trochę pszeniczne z subtelną goryczką na finiszu.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 330ml bottle with a plastic cap hanged in a wire. A: Pours a pale yellow color. Bit hazy. A huge bone-white head very bubbled is formed when poured. Good retention and some lacings left around S: Smell is really simple. Mild sweet matls and bit grassy hops T: Taste is also mild. Sweet malts and hops basically. Mild bitterness. Refreshing. Not much aftertaste M: Very light body and high carbonation O: Good and refreshing beer. Recommended for summer days :) [ BA Review @ 5/18/2011 ]
