KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 25, 2012
500 ml bottle. Big burst of skunk when opened, though balanced a bit with caramel malt and citrus, grass hop. Clear amber, low bubbly head. Nicely fruity andnhoppy, with light caramel and good bready malts. No skunk here. Decent, but they must lose the clear bottles.

Another English golden ale, as if that was what we needed. Beautiful dark gold. The aroma is very English. Bittersweet flavour, hous character. Very drinkable, not at all challenging.

PorterPounder (5196) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Dark golden leading to copper pour with a tight white head that diminishes pretty quickly. Aroma has a hint of vanilla and butterscotch. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some vanilla hints, a bit of nuttiness, some buttery notes and just a hint of spearmint in the back end. Mouthfeel is crisp. Good session starter.

Bottle. Buttery, fizzy, nettle hops. Quite a lagerish feel to the whole thing. Clean, drinkable and refreshing.

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2012
12oz bottle. Clear golden / orange color. Good thin off-white head, leaves decent lace. Impressive hoppy aroma - lemongrass, some citrus, light floral. Good light caramel malt, some honey, little toastiness. Good mix of bitter and sweetness in the finish. Light body, smooth light carbonation, very drinkable. More dry texture. This is a very tasty light ale - especially now since it just hit the shelves. This probably wouldn’t age well, especially with these clear glass bottles

Bottle from Meny, Aksdal. Pours clear weak golden with a huge frothy white head.Aroma of tropical and grassy hops. Taste is moderate sweet caramel malts, weak bitterness from the galaxy hops noticeable towards the end. Very high carbonated.

Sigmund (4814) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2012
500 ml clear bottle, from Meny Aksdal. ABV is 4.1%. Drunk from a plastic glass in a hotel room in Denmark. Deep golden colour, pours fizzy with big bubbles, white head disappears instantly. Heineken-like lightstruck "skunky" aroma first, also sweetish notes of toffee, hints of caramel and ripe berries. Fizzy mouthfeel. Some fruity notes, hints of toffee again, tolerable bitterness in the finish, but not very exciting. Drinkable, but won’t buy again.
