edsspoon (406) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle - deep amber with a fizzy pale brown head which soon fizzles away to nothing. The aroma is just awful, maybe because its in a clear bottle, but its mostly just an overwhelming aroma of corn. There’s some grass and malt also if you try to find it. Taste is somewhat redeeming - malts, grass and lemon followed by some sweet malts and a medium bitter finish. Some hints of corn in the taste. Medium body, high carbonation.

SamTheBarrel (445) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2014
500ml clear bottle with a nicely designed shape and artwork on the label, poured into a pint glass. Appearance is clear amber with a small white head, that dissipated quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of caramel and biscuits. Flavours of caramel, biscuits, toffee and honey. Taste is light sweet and medium-heavy bitter. Palate is light bodied, slightly oily texture and average carbonation. Overall a good sessionable Bitter that goes well with grilled food, the flavours are mild but pleasant.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2045) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 8, 2014
About 200 yen from the Seiyu in Minami-Kusatsu for a 500ml bottle, 4.5% - this is dirt cheap for Japan. I am not a fan of clear bottles but what can you do. It pours a light copper gold with a light beige/off-white head. The aroma is quite malty, graham, biscuit, caramel plus at first you get some skunkiness but it isn’t that pronounced. The body is quite thin with a rough sandpaperish carbonation giving it a sharp mouthfeel. The taste is grainy, sawdust, a bitter hit and a brief sweet caramel hit. The finish is pretty good with a nice biscuity caramel plus some hoppy bitterness. A decent cheap ale for the price.

czlowiekwiadro (215) - POLAND - APR 28, 2014
w zapachu wyraźne toffi i karmel z lekkimi nutami ziołowymi. ładny, bursztynowy, przejrzysty kolor ze średnio trwałą pianą. w smaku pełne, lekko karmelowe z wyraźną, ale lekką goryczką.

Lambister (208) - FINLAND - APR 11, 2014
Large bottle, thanks to niilohast. Beautiful amber color with extremely small head. Honey, wooden aromas. Acids at first turn to bitter quickly and leaves flavors to short and dull.
