ClubGonzo (5399) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Light pale yellow, medium creamy white head. Aroma is sweet marzipan-like tones, pale malts and hints of melon in the back. Taste is mild pale malts and sweet maize-ish marzipan tones. Pleasant in a strange way, but not really that good. Slightly fuller body than a regular pilsener. Somehow I can’t help kinda liking this beer, although something deep inside says "no". Strange. :-)

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2012
It’s hazy golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of flower, fruit, bread and malt. The flavor has a light sweetness and lovely notes of white-clover flower, bread, fruit and malt, and the finish is slightly dry and spicy/fruity!

kevnic2008 (11236) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2012
Slightly hazy yellow with moderate carbonation and next to no head. Sweetish, orange fruit and grassy hop aroma. Drinkable.

yespr (40140) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2012
From tap at 4:20. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is grassy and light yeasty. Bitter, light bubblegum yeasty. Crisp hoppy and light grassy too.

Mortlach (1886) - Rome, ITALY - APR 22, 2012
20/04/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Dorata spenta, lievemente torbida, con buona schiuma biancastra. Aroma non molto intenso ma meravigliosamente armonioso, sentori di pane (lieviti), latte e miele (orzo). In bocca è dolciastra, delicata, maltata, con amaro non percettibile, ma che contribuisce al bilanciamento complessivo della birra. Sorso dopo sorso emerge una gradevole e inaspettata complessità nonostante la sua semplicità di base. Corpo medio, carbonazione molto (troppo) abbondante. Davvero una bella birra, peccato per la carbonazione eccessiva che ne limita la bevibilità.

EithCubes (5549) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle by 18.04.2012, with the grenade pull-top (and this one more pleasurable than usual). Nose is quite sweet with dominant vanilla and lemony citrus. Golden body with a creamy white head. Taste is sweet and somewhat bitter with (too) strong floral-hoppy overtones, the rare touch of German resin and complementary chalky yeast. Full-bodied and smooth, creamy, leaving with a dry metallic wave and slightly sour goodbye. Worth a try, but a little difficult.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2012
On tap at Summer Beer Festival Rome on MesandSim’s epic stag do. Slightly hazy pale gold with a thin white head. Dusty malt aroma with hints of hops. Bit of creamy vanilla and hints of lemon in the flavour. Pretty drinkable actually, not bad.
