330ml bottle from Rythmn and Booze. 11 months out of date. 49p. I couldn’t help myself. I should have known, though. Watered down, fizzy banana milk shake.

Lambister (274) - FINLAND - APR 18, 2014
50 cl from Stockmann. Enjoyed in summer cottage. Diminishing small head and amber colored. Dull aromas and can’t really find any specific aromas. Light structure and body makes it very easy to drink. Some bitterness in the end bringing some malt notes.

Variety pack from macro. Really dull taste. No decernable character. Lowest common denominator ale.

Russo (1759) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - APR 11, 2014
A clear amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma is slightly buttery with notes of toffee, bread and grass. Flavor is more hoppy and refreshing. Medium body with soft carbonation and a dry finish.

Rob_D_UK (1147) - Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Amber with an off white head. Big hop and malt aroma. Taste not quite so bold, but there are sweet malts and plenty of bitterness.

Expected a lot as I'm a big fan of spitfire which I believe comes from the same brewer. Was somewhat disappointed with this though.

Ermo (8) - ESTONIA - MAR 18, 2014 does not count
Pours dark yellow caramel color with a medium thick head which disappears after a minute. Taste is a weak bitter in the beginning and turns into watery after that.

Finn (4642) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Eurospar Langnes. Drukket hjemme 1 Aug 13. Mørk gyldenbrun med et høyt luftig skum som varer en stund. Litt lacing. Aroma av malt. Smaken er skarp malt. Blir litt syrlig etter hvert. Mangler fylde - men god for styrken.

txolo (154) - SPAIN - JAN 10, 2014
Predomina dulzor, pan y frescor, huele a galleta tostarrica. Al beber entra amarga, un poco astringente, de gas vivaz y espuma cremosa
