Dacrza (619) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2013
DATE TASTED: November 16, 2013... GLASSWARE: Ommegang stem... OCCASION: celebrating the unseasonably warm afternoon of football, Christmas lights and fun with my sons... APPEARANCE: opaque, deep golden amber body with a soft, foamy thin white head that rings uniformly; lacing is cirrus cloud and ocean crest... AROMA: aromatic, fruity--sour apple and tart candy... PALATE: light, fizzy as cider; possesses some staying power in the mouth, but rather dry like champagne...TASTE: mildly tart and pleasantly crisp with little exchange of flavor in the exhale; an underlying hint of lager malts, but inevitably this is a clean basket of fruit with enough hops to hint at an ale...OVERALL: This has to be one of those handful of brews I have passed numerous times, always intending to try and never quite trying; its inclusion in the "Great Beers of Belgium" forced my hand, and I am pleased to find it a serviceable, light, cheaper version of Unibroue’s wonderful Ephemere (which announces its apple right up front); a single notch below the Estaminet pilsner in the sample, and two below the Rodenbach--but beer drinking isn’t really a competition, right?...

An acceptable Belgian ale, good for an evening on the town. Smooth, a little sweet, a little bitter, nice color, good head, any thing but special, really. The artwork is middle of the road.

Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2015
Aroma has some Pilsner malts, sweet and dry. Pours gold with a small white head. Taste is bitter and sweet, a bit too tasteless. Palate is boring and thin, a bit too bitter. Overall a generic boring beer but drinkable

jamaty (1160) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Ambar clara, con dos dedos de espuma. Aroma poco marcado, a malta. Sabor malteado y ligeramente lupulado. Agradable en conjunto con carbonatacion y cuerpo medios, y bastante bebible.

minutemat (2406) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2015
330ml bottle, 2004 Vintage @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, May 15, courtesy of Mike. Rusted cap. Pours deep brown with a fair amount of floaters. It’s clear this has had a degree of oxidisation / contamination over the years it’s been in its dusty cellar. Dusty aroma, some definite cobwebs, can just about get some caramel but couldn’t really stomach another sip.

oczek2015 (74) - Przemyśl, POLAND - JUN 9, 2015
Aromat: słodowy, delikatny karmel, słodkie owoce, i żelazo. Barwa: bursztynowe, trochę butelka wytelepana podczas transportu więc lekko przymglone. Piana: biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, średnia, bardzo szybko znikła prawie do zera, leasing brak. Smak: Słodowy który łamany jest delikatną kwasowością, trochę owocowy i wyraźnie wyczuwalne żelazo, wysycenie średnie, goryczka niska. Słabiutkie, nie do polecenia, ale zaliczenia.

Gangstergafje (218) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2015
The beer has a nice orange/yellow color. The foam is very rough and disappears quickly. The beer has a nice smell. It has s sweet fruity and floral aroma. It also has another kind of mellow aroma I can’t define. The taste also has some of the fruity sweetness. However, there is also a muff taste, which is rather unpleasant. Luckily the fruity sweetness and the hoppy bitterness don’t suffer that much because of this nasty taste.

Klares Bernstein mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone, sehr mild, leicht fruchtig, im Abgang etwas würzig, sehr dezent, fast schon langweilig. Hopfen: Target, Magnum, Golding.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2015 [For private use only.] Tastes like an average beer. Not very bitter or strong. Not a favorite, but not too bad.
