fabioanselmo (185) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - FEB 23, 2013
Cerveja com predominância do malte, lembrança de fermento e um toque de madeira e caramelo. No nariz, sem grandes notas florais, com lembrança de pão fermentado. Cor belíssima, média formação de espuma. Belo conjunto, contudo falta algo.

emartell (328) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - JAN 20, 2013
Aromas ligeros, principalmente a malta y algo de Lupulos aromáticos. Color cobre con destellos brillantes. Carbonatación alta, cuerpo ligero, corona de espuma media de buena retención. En boca Amarga, refrescante y maltosa. Al paladar es una cerveza agradable, muy maltosa y con un caracter fuerte para tratarse de una cerveza laguer. Cerveza interesante, refrescante, agradable, con un sabor caracteristico y ciertas notas fuertes recordando el sabor del whisky.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - JAN 4, 2013
Advent Calendar #11. I got some woody smokey notes, just very mild. Nothing was off, and a bit of caramel that didn’t take away from the fresh lager quality. I’d never had the "old" one, maybe that was better, but this was fine by me.

Vargatul (139) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - DEC 18, 2012
0.33 l bottle, from Auchan. Amber colour, claer liquid, short white head. Aroma has notes of malt, honey, brown sugar, walnut jam. The taste is bitter, the body is full, the carbonation is average. It has a licorice texture and a bittersweet aftertaste.

RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2012
Deep gold pour. Aroma is bread, grain and there’s a little bit of sweetness in there somewhere. Flavour isn’t much - doughy, soapy hops, lemon peel. A bit of a miss for me.

CapFlu (5047) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
(11,2 fl oz bottle) 2012 Advent Calendar. Pours a thin white frothy head atop a clear dark amber. Nose of corn and wet wood. Flavour is watery, grassy some canned corn. Not great.

DuffMan (8808) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle, Dec 6th Beer Advent Calendar. Medium toffee amber colour, clear, with a fizzy off-white head that collapses quickly and leaves no lace. Aroma is corn syrup and light caramel. Grainy palate with a splash of caramel and toast. A little harsh actually. Watery. This was the first major fail from this little box ’o joy. I knew I’d hit a shitty one sooner or later!

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2012
Dec 6 CBAC. I’ve had the 7% but this is the 5%. Amber with a fair head. A little frougher and fruitier than an I&G. Comes across a bit boozy and lacking in malt or smoothness to stand up to the spirit.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2012
Pours a clear copper color with a small white head that dissipates into a small ring. Aroma is vienna malts, bread and caramel. Taste is malty caramel and biscuit up front with a very light bitterness tingle on the end. The beer smells big and taste big up front then just gets rather thin.
