Yorker (1466) - Herning, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2013
35 cl can @ home. Pours clear yellow with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are grains, malt, and a small hint of hops – with an ever so slightly bitter finish.

SlackerMads (1938) - DENMARK - NOV 5, 2013
Can. Light hazy yellow with a large creamy white head. Good retention and lace. Honey, flowery, grain, earthy, light bready, light yeasty notes. Light/medium body, light sweetness with a light bitter and dry finish. Gentle mouthfeel with soft/medium carbonation. Clean, simple and easy to drink, with just enough hops to make it a bit interesting while still easy to pour down without noticing it. Sometimes my head needs something straightforward, and this does the trick.

Straw yellow, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Biscuity malts and grassy/spicy hops. Simple, clean profile. Medium bodied, a bit sweet, mellow carbonation, clean finish that could be a bit crisper.
