Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2012
The beer in the glass is crystal clear and golden yellow. The head is fine pored and disappears quickly. It smells malty-sweet, slightly metallic and hoppy-bitter. Starts malty and sour, seems somewhat artificial. Some metallic bitterhops are noticeable. The finish is chemically, sweet, slightly metallic, nearly no hop aroma!

omega (881) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 8, 2012
A beer for drinking. Not overly carbonated and quite soft on the palate. Taste however is not too challenging so very easy to knock them back in quick succession.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 23, 2011
A very attractive looking drop with a nice golden hue and medium white head. The initial sips are refreshing with faint fruity notes, mainly ccitrus/lemon. As the beer goes down it loses a little of that zing for me. Would be a pretty decent session beer. I really like the appearance of the bottle.

kwik-lime (1633) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2011
Head disappears in no time at all - ridiculous. 1/5 for appearance. Taste is better but not much better, a thin lager with major hints of corn.
