rosenbergh (8864) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2015
Draught at the Murphy's, CPH, Denmark. Clear amber color with a small creamy head. Mild floral bitterness and some chemical notes in the aroma. Metallic and watery flavor with some hoppy notes and mild bitterness. Boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gaelic (43) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2015
Amber irish red, brewed by Heineken. Small touches of caramel, soft bitterness and no long aftertaste. It’s a so called " easy one " to drink with the early matches.

mauroruellas (539) - GETULINA, BRAZIL - AUG 30, 2015
cerveja avermelhada,pouco licorosa,creme alto e duradouro,lúpulo se sobressai ao malte tornando-a amarga,mas tudo dentro do estilo,enfim sua aparência se destaca ante ao sabor.

olsvammel (4380) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2015
On tap at Havanna in Örebro. Chemical smell with a strong apple aroma. Similar taste. Low carbonation. Sweet. Unfresh. Lots of apples. Very hard to drink, took me more then an hour and would have poured it out at home. Horrible beer.

Kruspijuegos (17) - Alicante, SPAIN - AUG 9, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2015 Espuma poco duradera, sabor demasiado comercial que nos hace pensar en todo lo que ha sido algo bueno y ya no es lo mismo. Pasable pero no Premium.

Batavi (191) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2015
Uitgeschonken in Sint Crispijn bierglas, koperkleurig/roodbruin helder bier met witte schuimkraag die snel weer wegtrekt. Veel mout aroma’s, karamel, licht rokerig. Smaakpallet is best wel mooi in balans tussen droog, zoet en bitter met tonen van gerstemout, karamel, chocolade, roggebrood en lichte aardachtige tonen. Het mondgevoel is iets romig met een zachte carbonatie erin. De afdronk is kort en zacht bitter. Ik dronk deze Murphy’s vroeger best wel vaak en vond het een verfrissend bier met een mooi gebalanceerd smaakpallet een doordrinker voor in de Irish pub. Nu nog steeds, lekker eenvoudig, verfrissend en mooi in balans.

Icedwarf (851) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2015
Helder roodbruin bier met schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en ietwat rook en caramel, verder vrij vlak van smaak. Niet echt bijzonder.

metalspice (355) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2015
Fra fat. Kobber mot rødt i fargen. Lukter knekkebrød og noe kløver. Knekkebrød også i smaken sammen med noe jord. Grei tørsteslukker.

Clear amber, some hints of brown. Medium head, low retention. In the nose, notes of bread, malt, caramel and cut grass. Light to medium body. Regular beer.
