GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 3, 2010
An amber brown color with a good head leaving behind a thin satin canopy. Smells of darkfruit with minerals. Medium nectar with ample effers. This brew is uneventful featuring a lot of not much in terms of flavor. Just mildly sweet cornering darkfruit. Worth drinking but I would not pay for this. Thin around the edges, no mid palate and a boring finish. Why do they even make beer like this?

Bottle@Home. Citrus, toffee and a hint of raisin in the aroma. Brown colour, beige irregular head, few lace. Sweet, light citric, light bitter, some citrus, hint of toffee, some spices. Light bodied, sticky mouth feel. Easy going, bit too sweet but still nice.

Fin (7031) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2009
Bottle that I picked up at Carrefour, Citi Europe, Calais, 31-10-09 consumed 04-12-09 Pours clear amber with very thin white head. Initially this a little sweet in the mouth with the alcohol very evident and whilst warming its maybe a touch harsh. Some spiciness, bit of fruit seeped in alcohol, touch of caramel another fairly average beer to end a slightly disappointing beer week. A6 A4 F6 P3 Ov12 3.1

SDalkoholic (2089) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Bottle from Bev Mo: Poured with little to almost no head creation, and what foam did start, it quickly died out to a naked golden honey colored liquid. My nose detects a high presence of alcohol such as that of a bottle of isopropyl with a faint scent of Belgian yeast that contains some spice in its fragrance. The flavor has a strange green tea like flavor and lacks body structure in terms of balance and palate because of the high level of sugary sweetness and the fizzy mouth feel. Nothing else I would like to say about this beer other than the note to self: Don’t buy this ever again.
