Grumbo (1506) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle from a world food store in Chelmsford. Clear pale gold colour with a white head. Slight malt aroma, with cereal. Quite high carbonation, light body. Not one of the better pale lagers.

Erzengel (7888) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2013
Rating from 2008. 33cl-bottle. Meine Flasche hat nur ein Bauchetikett ohne Zutaten oder MHD. Nur Name, Inhalt, Alkoholgehalt und Brauerei sind auf Englisch aufgefhrt. Dunkelgelbe Farbe im Glas, wrzig-alkoholisch-vergorener Geruch. Der Antrunk ist sehr getreidig-wrzig und leicht slich. Zum Hauptteil wird das Bier wrziger und slicher mit einer interessant muffigen Note. Der Nachgeschmack ist leicht metallisch und ziemlich schnell verflogen. Dabei wrzig-getreidig und leicht malzig-slich. Sehr sffig. --> Interessantes, exotisches Bier, aber fr den deutschen Dauergebrauch eher weniger meins! 12,8,12,6,12,7 - 8,50

dreamflower (772) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle shared with northropfrye. Thanks for this one!!! Ha. The best thing about this beer is the appearance, crystal clear and pretty, I kind of enjoy looking up at the bubbles from below, but the aroma is underwhelming, and the palate gets watery quickly and the taste is not awesome.

northropfrye (3289) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
Faint bready aroma. Clear yellow body with white head and surprising amount of lacing. Taste is sweet, and bitter, not too pronounced, a bit medicinal. Not horrible.

Nothing too exciting about this. Aromas of grain, corn, and some fruit. Similar flavours.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty straw, dishwater like head, faint, lacks lacing.   Stale dried straw on the tongue, sweetened however.   Flat semi-sweet straw on the tongue.   Smells and tastes alike.   Pretty boring overall, and average.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Very average at least without fault, but also very boring.   If I was in Ethiopia, I would dig this over a Budweiser or other American macro swill.
