   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Koelschtrinker (10669) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 7, 2014
Mild hopfiger Antrunk, der sich zum Mittelteil allerdings steigert. Grasig, milde Gewürznoten, auch diese werden mit der Zeit stärker, bleiben aber immer im Hintergrund. Feinperlig, die Noten der Fasslagerung sind sehr dezent. Schwächelnd hopfiger Nachgeschmack, in dem die Gewürznoten so besser hervorkommen. Nettes, nicht spektakuläres Bier. 9/9/9/9/10/9

SlackerMads (1613) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle. Almost clear orange amber with a medium/large frothy white head. Sweet fruits, marmalade, ginger, zest, apricot, honey, peach. Sauternes notes are very present, makes for a great soft slow drinking beer. Medium body, oily/creamy texture, soft carbonation. Good stuff.

olio (6194) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2014
375 ml bottle.
Very odd aroma, sweet buttery bourbon note, some wood and mild fruits. Sweet taste also, caramel, some wood and mild butter. The butter(scotch) notes are a bit disturbing here.

lusikka (6240) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2014
375 ml bottle.
Pours a copper amber colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of butter, wort, pear juice and some mild spicy notes. Flavour of mild citrusy tartness, wort, oak, butterscotch, wet grass and wet bready notes. Very mild ginger notes appear after the beer warms up a bit. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Weird beer. Not enjoyable at all.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle. Hazy Amber with a thin White head. Thick hoppy flavour with Vanilla and Ginger. The sauternes is a clear component. It works quite well.

DutchDrebus (4020) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle @ benzai. Clear orange to amber colour with a medium to big sized white head. Smells malts, some hops, wood, wine, grapes. Tastes oak, hint of grapes, fruity, fresh, not a lot of hops, slightly grassy, hint of caramel without the sweetness, almond. Medium body, soft carbo. Nice beer, but doesn’t taste like an IPA imo.
