dreamloomer (66) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 7, 2010
Bottle, light gold. Aroma not very strong, hoppy. The taste is quite light, with a low bitterness and a nice maltiness. Quite good for such a low extract.

Quinten (1055) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2010
At an bulgarian shop in Zaandam, plastic bottle 2000ml ! Golden, thin head, some strange notes, like spices, nice grainy bottom and bits like an bohemian, but the strange notes make me wondering.

Can. A light golden beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with skunky notes of brewing cereal. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and straw as well as some skunky notes of brewing cereal. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Rune (10011) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2009
500ml bottle picked up in a supermarket in the old town of Nessebar, Bulgaria. Filmy white layer over a clear, straw coloured body. Lighter aroma of grass. Sweet grassy fruits in flavour. Very short lived bitter aftertaste. Clean tasting. Nothing special for the style, no strange taste, however (18.07.2009).

fata2683 (2175) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 30, 2009
bottle, pours light gold, no head. Strong malt aroma with a light skunk in the background. Light bodied, very watery, some hay flavors and a buttery finish with next to no hop presence. Very bland beer.

My can actually brewed @ http://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/brewer name/2151/ Medium white head, fast gone over pale metallic golden beer. Grassy, grainy nose, vegetable, faintly rotting as well. Sweet, bit corn-like malts taste. Adjuncts quite possible, white sugar. Again +/- grassy. Slightly spritzy (compared to the Zagorka...), Very light body. Very late in the after’taste’, harsh metallic component. Bo-o-oring. Thanks to Stefaan for bringing them over!
