wheresthepath (2122) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2008
[500ml bottle from Asda High Wycombe] Shared with Jim. Like a German pilsner mixed with a bitter. Horribly fizzy, dry and sour. Not good at all.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2008
I managed to reach Sainsbury’s at Tottenham Court Road just before closing time. After a long flight from the north the first beers are a real pleasure to drink. Typical Shepherd Neame taste with nutty and sweet caramel malt, finishing with a note of plain hop bitterness. Beady aroma. Clear dark amber body under a thin, but lasting white head. Clean, foamy and thin to moderate palate. Alright as a starter for a week England (29.04.2008)

liinis (1767) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 22, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2009 I love this type of hoppy drink, but too often they are way too flat like this one. amber colour, thick white head. strong hops, acidic, but smooth like it says.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 13, 2008
50cl bottle (clear), bbe 12/2008. Served on the warmer side, this one starts with a fluffy, off-white head that quickly bubbles away. Pale red hue with brown undertones. Strongly skunky initially but fortunately it blows off rather quickly. Quite floral and leafy in the aroma, almost biting, leading into some soft, salty, minerality. Key limes shift to toffee and caramel --both soft-- along with some cookies. In the flavour the minerality is overwhelming at first and the sweetness is completely lost. Feels quite lively in the mouth with a good deal of citric acidity going into leafy, dry hops. Begins to remind me of grapefruit soda after a while. Medium to light bodied with a watery texture and fragile carbonation. Malts are difficult to locate; the hops are dry and harsh; the acidity is prickling; and the texture limp.

IrishBoy (4103) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 16, 2008
500ml bottle brought over by my friend Bjorn! Nose of grassy hops, light toffee, and a hint of golden raisins; light copper with a medium off-white head; flavor has some toffee, hop bitterness, and some very light appley esters. Decent bitter!

Miksu (5047) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2008
0.5 l bottle. Amber color with small head. Honeyish maltiness, perfumed hops and hint of apricot in the aroma. Dry, crisp, salty and biscuity flavor with some notes candyish goldings hop. Very dry, bitter and crisp Burton water finish, which I am not so fond of. Not very drinkable despite the low abv.

larsga (7295) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2008
Big offwhite lasting head. Light amber body. Earthy softly metallic malty aroma with peppery hop notes. Dryish wooden malty taste with tofeeish and peppery notes. Dry metallic wooden malt aftertaste. Slightly thin and watery, though impressive for the amount of alcohol. Good! (0.5l bottle, Sainsbury’s, London.)

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2008
Bottle (500ml). Poured a nice amber colour with a dense frothy head which lasted very well. Aroma was malt driven, with strong notes of toffee, caramel and some brown sugar in the back. Flavor was similar but less intense with plenty of malt, smooth toffee, caramel, and a great nutty finish. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation, watery texture, creamy mouthfeel and an average finish.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2008
Bottle from Sainsburys. Nose of malt and hops. Pours a thin clear copper coloured beer. taste is thin with malt and sugar dominant. A simple pallette. Typically poor beer from Shepherd Neame.
