Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 9, 2011
In bottle. Pours a light golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of caramel, honey and barley. Similar flavours with a nicely floral hop character. Nicely bitter. Little oily mouth-feel, mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. OK.

Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2011
0.5l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. This one pours a clear pale golden body with a small bubbly white head. Aroma is quite fruit-yeasty with notes of citrus, heather honey and mild caramel. Mild and nice. Average carbonation, medium-bodied and it has a mild and oily mouthfeel. Nice flavors as well. Mild caramel flavored with hints of honey, grass and a thin and dry bitter ending. Not a bad bitter, but perhaps a bit boring.

BoBoChamp (5353) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2011
50cl, Scottish brew, from Bierzwerg Greven, not complex brew, malty/floral and slightly spicy, not balanced, clear, small head, nothing special

Dorqui (2081) - Brescia, ITALY - AUG 16, 2011
Bottled at "Osteria della Birra" - Bergamo (BG).
Golden yellow color, much elegant and crisp. Very good head of medium resistance, bubbly and lively aspect. Little sour nose, rumors of fresh mellow, aged white flowers, very malty and balsamic final. Crisp and little warm body, little woody and bitterish final.

laiti (5414) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
50 cl bottle, BBE 06/2012
Lots of toffee and honey in aroma. Mouthdrying palate at the start. Flavour has sweetish, bitter toffee and some spices. Surprisingly thick palate for 3.8%. Good bitter.

lusikka (5937) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
500 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour with a large white head which collapses quickly. Aroma of toffee and honey with some mild hops. Flavour of raw hops, some citrus and caramel. Quite long, dry and bitter finish. I’d say this is more of a Golden Ale.

abemorsten (2593) - Mosterřy, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2011
Clear golden body with a rocky, fingerthick, off-white head leaving a good lacing. Rosey, floral, sweet elderflower aroma. Sweet and bitter flavors with grassy notes. Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry finish.

Maris (952) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2011
From a 500ml bottle on 7/4/2011. Pours golden with a decent head. Doesn’t have much of an aroma, but what’s there is a strange combo of grass, rice and paint. The taste is also quite unusual. There is some maltiness up front but it’s dominated by a sour, salty, citric hop bitterness, which keeps on lingering. The palate is quite thin. Distinctive but not overly enjoyable.

tiong (3611) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2011
500ml bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi

Pours orange with a white head. Aroma has hints of spices and orange fruit. Taste is bitter and has hints of fruits. Finish is quite smooth. Quite easy to drink.
