Sigmund (5024) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2010
330 ml bottle, bought at Voldby Købmandsgård, Denmark. ABV is 8%, brewed by Het Anker. Very pale yellow colour, hazy in the end, huge white head. The aroma has notes of "Green Apples Shampoo", Belgian ale yeast and spices. The flavour is fairly refreshing for its strength and moderately spicy, notes of green apples again, also notes of white candi sugar and artificial candy, unpleasant soapy aftertaste. Overall disappointing.

Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Fruity esters very present. Moderate bitter flavor. Average nice moderate bitter finish. Fruity esters again very present. Creamy palate. Nice beer.

ClubGonzo (3993) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2010
Pours a clear, light and golden body with a medium white top. Smell is sharp, yeasty hop notes with some grassy, floral hints. Taste is almond essence and boozy notes with hints of molasses, Belgian style. Despite the fiery name, this is a very bland run-of-the-mill kinda blonde. A prominent mythic character like Lucifer deserves better than this.

goozen (2928) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle 0,33ltr: A bit overly sweet Duvel-like, but you get an over the top sweet bitter aftertaste.

erickok (3499) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 7, 2010
Blond, average body, somewhat sparkling. Small white head. Cereal, grass, freshness of mandarin. Bitter-dry aftertaste. Tasty beer that’s easy to drink. (Bottle 33cl, 2,00 eur)

Countbeer (4390) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2010
Draft @ OBM: Small quick disappearing white foamy head. Yellow golden color. Smell is hoppy and fruity with hints of alcohol and malts. Taste is light, though 8% alcohol is not to be found on your tongue. Taste more special, like a heavier pilsner, bit more alcohol and also some alcohol and spices that spice this beer up a bit.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2010
Hazy golden. White head. Aroma is from glue and citrus. Flavor is like dishwater, citric and perfume. Yeaks!! Syntetic!

Pours blueish pale, which is essentially saying it was orange. It has quite flagrancy: single-numbered Alpha-acid hops, graham flour, and some zest. Its tastes creep up on you unassumingly... there’s a lot more of this interesting graininess sweeping you off your feet as you swish it around in your mouth, then swallow. I think this is a great beer for shuteye and television-surfing.

Marko (3912) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 25, 2010
Bottle at the Hopdevil in Zagreb
Poured a murky dark yellow-golden body. Soft, nice chalky orangey nose with some light notes of banana showing up. Better than expected. The taste is quite a bit different though. It remains soft, and the mouthfeel is very nice. The taste is, however, crackery and slightly bready, slightly sweet and yoghurty, with a very light bitter note near the end. Quite balanced. Not the tastiest beer around but a very good beer for its’ style.
