floydslip (235) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Clear straw colored beer with a medium foamy bright white head that lasts. Musky nose of wet cardboard hops, corn, and bread. Flavor has a grainy sweetness offset by some musky hops that grow in intensity through the finish. Crisply carbonated, this is pleasant enough, but fairly generic.

Bottle. Bright, effervescent hoppy nose. Classic pilsner. Extremely dry and crisp. Medium bitter after taste. About as good an example of a European pilsner as they come.

Tall white top, clear golden body, crocheted lacing all over. Aroma; butterish malts, grassy sweet hops, dusty sweet bread. Taste; caramel malts, apple’ish toffee, grassy hops, dusty straws. Few dry spots on palate, soft and nice. More hops coming forward in finish, plus brown bread. This lager is made with Saaz hops, and tastes softly with some buttery notes as czech svetly style, a desitka 10° with abv as an 11°.

Rune (9064) - Tromsř, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2014
500ml dark green bottle, thanks to djoeye for sharing. Creamy white head leaving spotty lacing behind. Clear golden body colour. Grassy hops and pale malts on the nose. Taste brings notes of buttery malts and sweet apples. Mild malt-fruity ending. Soft in the mouth. Satisfying (Tromsř 11.11.2014).

Bottle. Lemon, barley malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Lightly sweet lemon, barley malt, and mildly bitter hay flavor. Medium body. Pretty good.

Bottle: Clear, medium gold with a frothy white head. Grainy, green-bottle aroma. Taste is sweet grain malt, corn, grass. Slightly bitter grassy hopping. Light and clean. Not bad, really.

Jamedra (647) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 9, 2014
Láhev 500 ml, pořízená v Bulharsku. Aroma je příjemně chmelové. Pěna je jasné bílá, jemná vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť je příjemně sladová s jemným nádechem citrusů v pozadí, finiš je středně hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí plně má střední říz a je dobře pitelné. Od tohoto piva jsem příliš nečekal, nicméně jsem velmi mile překvapen a musím uznat že se jedná o velmi příjemný světlý ležák.

Dorqui (2127) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle 0,33L. Maybe I was very thirsty , but I have appreciated this discount blonde beer. Medium prickly aspect with good foamy resistance. Fresh cereals and grains smell. Good prickly taste with equilibrate bitterness and refreshing long wheat duration.

I am not sure how long this green bottled brew had spent on the shelves of my friendly local liquor store but it is w/o a doubt one of the skunkiest beers I have ever laid smell upon. It is also, remarkably, not that bad. It pours a nice golden color. The head is fine bubbled and white but not very long lasting. Upon opening, the light-damaged hop skunk just about punches you in the face but it wafts away pretty quickly from the glass and leaves behind a surprisingly decent beer. The aroma is of maize and barley husk w/ an underpinning of herbal hops. A simply sweet malt background brings out a cereal taste--and in this case I mean that in the sense that it kind of tastes like Special K. Carbonation is perhaps a bit over zealous but the extra fizz is needed to keep this from cloying. All and all, despite the enormous waft of skunk initially, I am pretty impressed as far this being a well-constructed cheap beer. Put this sucker in some brown bottles and I might even buy it again.

50 cl bottle @ home. Bottled 17.09.2013, BBE 17.09.2014
Buttery aroma hits my nose when pouring. Closer sniff: more butter, grainy tones and grassy notes. Also some musty hay. Flavour has grassy hops, grain, buttery tones, hints of hay. Feels a bit ’greasy’. More like bohemian pils than lager. And better than average in that category.
