DanielBrown (4070) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Fancy can from the One Trick Pony, Moseley. Rather a stable, solid, quite plain, sticky, clean Lager. Nothing out of the ordinary, but quite fine.

Ragnampiza (683) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - DEC 29, 2014
355 ml can from Beer Up. Pale gold, slightly hazy, with an average, creamy and moderately persistent bright white head. Lots of bubbles streaming up. Typical helles aroma, definitely sweet, slightly nutty, some dark bread/biscuit notes, as well as herbal hops. The taste pretty much follow suite: sweet upfront, mild herbal and malty bitterness, slightly buttery/soapy taste, a hint of yellow fruits too. Solid dryness and excellent drinkability. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. May not be very fresh, but it’s still OK.

Huhzubendah (2866) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Can at Whole Foods in Alexandria, VA. Golden / bronze body. Clear with a small white cap. Aromas of pils malt, a hint of sweet, fruity notes. Grain and bread with distant floral notes and a clean feel. Easy to drink. Not too sweet. Light Saaz hop character. Solid.
