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 (5101) - 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 (9611) - 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 (4903) - 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.

pintbypint (3328) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2012
330ml brown bottle. Gold coloured brew, clear. White head with fine bubbles, a bit of lacing. Nose has sweet malts, bready notes. Taste has grains, bread and a touch of caramel sweetness. Finishes with medium graininess, touch of toasted grain and faint noble type hops. Average body and carbonation. Pretty simple vienna, drinkable, not very challenging. Barely any trace of whisky malt.

luttonm (4737) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2012
.33l bottle I poured into a small shot-wine glass. deep orange, sour nut aroma. sweet and sour funks like many traditional mid range lagers. It isn’t bad, but it ain’t good. This is a nice drinker but far from jumping out of second class. I can’t conceive of a customer who would be buying this regularly. It taste better, but flavor and price are not enough. so what is this beer going after?

vipinvelp (3887) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2012
Cloudy orange yellow with fast dissapearing foam head, so fast couln’t tell color. Aroma is weak barley, taste is not what the bottle promisses, very little taste. Similas weak aftertaste. (Velp 201210)
