larsga (7222) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2007
Biggish coarse white head leaves coarse lacing. Cloudy yellow body. Yeasty, mealy perfumy aroma with malty notes. Mild, soft fruity grassy hoppy taste with mealy malty notes, and a kind of dryish edge. Dry, fruity aftertaste. Nice, and extremely drinkable. (0.5l draft at Robert Doms beer house, Lviv. I think this an unfiltered version of their Premium, served at special locations in Lviv only. Dzyga in Lviv also has it, on tap.)

Shaney (2424) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2013
Mittelgelbe Farbe, trüb mit ordentlich Schaum. Hefig-malziges Aroma. Dünner Antrunk. Malzig, hefig, leicht säuerlich-fruchtig, verhaltene, bittere Hopfennote. Ok Pivo!

Как и "Дубова діжка", чуть лучше, чем 1715. А так — обычный лагер.

Flaske 0,5l. Spandert av og delt med Rune og vasken under ratesammenkomst hos ham 11 Sep 12. Lys gyldenbrun. Høyt kremaktig skum. Beskjeden aroma av høy&gress. Smaken er søt frukt. Lite kullsyre. Litt kjedelig.
