This just becomes embarrassingly worse. Taste of maltose. Not Irish. Got a great reminder of this the other day when I asked for a Sammy Adams that was listed with other Heineken swill from TGIF’s in Athens. Waitress said they don’t have SA anymore. So I picked this one. Tried this many times. Not gonna waste anymore time with this capitalistic swill.

Rune (7361) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2013
330ml bottle from a Supermarket in Rethymno, Crete. Off-white head that recedes to a patchy surface. Minimal lacing. Clear reddish-brown coloured body. Earthy malts and apricot on the nose. Flavours of sweet dried fruits and dark caramel malts. Slightly roasted ending. Soft and crisp mouth feel. Medium bodied. Noticeable alcohol. Quite alright, a bit too sweet in the long run (balcony at the hotel room 08.09.2013).

visionthing (2400) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 9, 2013
33cl bottle at Pueblo de Cafe, Rhodos. Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Fairly mild malty aroma with caramel and hints of spices and toast. Medium sweet with dominating caramel flavour and quite noticable bitterness. Hardly anything to write home about, but a nice break from the Greek pale lagers. Fair enough.

Foffern (1070) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle at restaurant, Crete. Has a clear amber colour with a light brown, medium head. Faint aroma of fudge, wood and some hops. The flavour has more caramel and hops, and some leather. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A decent ale but with a little faint aroma. Well-balanced though.

Silvan7 (583) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle @ home. Per me una birra banalissima. Ha un profumo lievemente caramellato , ma i sentori del luppolo industriale la rovinano decisamente. é sicuramente filtrata e pastorizzata. Non riesco ad essere obiettivo, perchè proprio non è stata di mio gusto. amara ma male, finale fastidiosamente appiccicoso.

Camons (5058) - Hasselager, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle @ Hotelroom, Rethymnon. Pours golden with a offwhite head. Aroma of malt, caramel, berries, some dried fruit. Flaovr is malt, caramel, candy sugar, berries, little dried fruit. Medium body, soft carbonation. 230813

Kosmokrator (425) - ITALY - JUL 26, 2013
Alla spina. Limpido color rossastro con un velo di schiuma beige. Flebile aroma dolciastro con un debole sentore di luppolo; gusto mediamente dolce con note di malto, caramello e poco altro. Corpo lieve, effervescenza quasi nulla, struttura setoso-acquosa, finale corto, persistenza minima. Bevuta fredda disseta, almeno questo...
