MoritzF (8563) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2014
(bottle, 65cl) Clear, golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Slightly papery corny, somewhat malty aroma with hints of rubber. Moderately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Doughy and corny taste with shades of grassy hops; mildly sweet finish with a restrained level of bitterness. Poor. 01.IX.14

Bov (9629) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 1, 2014
from Otto’s - golden beer, clear and with a little white foam left; grainy and with notes of paperboard, light spicy; medium-bodied, some sweetness and tartness, light earthy and corny malty finish

MarkoNm (590) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 17, 2014
Pours a clear golden color, topped with quite some white head which settles down very quickly. The aroma is malty with some grains also picked up. The taste is light, watery, mostly malty and quite grassy. OK, but nothing special.

Herzog_Wilhelm (18) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2014
Bought at Tesco’s. Big bottle, looks nice. It tastes a little bit soapy, but not too bad. (Hard to say if other nigerian beers are better). Somehow typical industrial Lager Beer, hop character misses almost completely.

Erzengel (2922) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2014
The beer starts smooth, malty, not too thin, easy to drink. The mainpart is malty with nutty-herbal hints, fresh, smooth. The aftertaste is medium, not too watery, slightly sweet, slightly grainy, fresh-malty. Nice! 10/12/8/8

Holmen1 (2600) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014
Flaske fra African House på Vesterbro: helt ok lagerutseende mht skum og farge. nesten uten aroma, men smaken er som så mange andre lyse lagere ganske så intetsigende. Iflg etiketten er den brygget med maltet sorghum og sucrose i tillegg til det vanlige. Kan ikke si at jeg kjenner noe fra disse ekstra ingrediensene. Fungerer sikkert helt flott rundt ekvator.

harrisoni (13894) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle from Toby, out of date, but who cares. Clear gold lasting white head. Only slightly oxidised aroma, but mostly wet cardboard. A little bit of lemon and some ok lemon flavour but mostly like licking a wet copy of the Evening Standard.
