Ernest (7319) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Can (BB Feb, 2016). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with a note of soap. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Rather thin, watery, and rough-malted. Drinkable but not very good.

Pours yellow fizzy. Aroma is full of apples, a most like a cider. Taste has more different malt notes though still sweet apple notes. Not much hops. Palate is thin, good carbonation.

Simple thick yellow pour with light sticky head. Nose is cereal grains, sweet corn, simple maltiness, and unidentifiable fruit (star fruit?). Light body with nice carb. Very drinkable. Taste is exactly as the nose. Nice summer drinkin beer.

Minderbinder (3276) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
Can 355ml. Thx to my southern neighbour benefactor. Pours blond with very low white head. No lacing. Aroma is of lager action, grain. Taste is of lager action, malt, some sugar. Palate: Light body. High carbonation. Overall: Good. Refreshing. Leagues better than expected, while indeed not too complex.

Scopey (12505) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Can from Whole Foods London Piccadilly. It pours clear golden with a decent white head. The nose is soft, sweet, bready action, dough, cereal, pale and a bit pissy. The taste is crisp, clean, light bitterness, sweet doughy malts, creamy, cereal, fresh lemon, grassy, earth and light metallic twang with a smooth, dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well rounded and good drinkability. Very nice lagery action.

Can from Booths. Clear golden with little head. Surprisingly this had almost no aroma. I found it bitter, dry and tasty and a pretty authentic helles. I like it but my wife didn’t, she thought it was bland, which I suppose is fair enough following a Brewdog IPA.
