Bierkrug (2130) - - JUL 27, 2009
500 ml bottle in Egypt. Its smooth, and it doesnt taste like crap, but it isnt exactly something pleasant to be drinking. Its heavily carbonated and extremely watered down though...cant drink much of it at all.

gyllenbock (6480) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2009
Transparent golden color with a small head that disappears almost immediately. Weak aroma and taste, thin mouthfeel. I guess it might work when its hot weather outside.

Finn (5578) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 29, 2009
Bottle 0,5l. Thanks to Christina for bringing this all the way from Egypt! Pale golden colored. A rapidly disappearing creamy head. Strong metallic aroma. Soft fruity flavor with a dry bitter aftertaste. Surprisingly OK.

Rune (10000) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 24, 2009
Thanks to Finn for providing a 500ml green bottle of this one. Pours a clear, straw coloured body with a quickly diminishing, white head. Aroma of discreet grainy malts and a touch of acid grass behind. Drying citric hints in flavour. Clean and very dry in the mouth. Medium to thin bodied. Soft carbonated Some refreshments (shared at a gathering in Tromsø, 23.04.2009).

Again, another cruddy Egyptian beer, but did the job in the Egyptian sun - when this sort of shit is all that’s on offer, you soon begin to like it!

heavy (2349) - Split, CROATIA - JAN 13, 2009
10/01 0.5 l can brought by a friend from Syria, thanks Damir! It poured golden body with medium sized head. Weaker, floral and herbal hops aroma. Flavor was also weak flowery malty with touch of hops. Not bad, but misses lot of body. Short and watery finish. Relatively OK from where it is, but this is just an one-dimensional and boring brew.

Marko (4540) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 10, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2009 Can courtesy of an acquaintance who brought it from Syria (thanks!), to heavy with whom this was shared. Poured a pale golden body with a nice and big fluffy thick white head that went away at a medium pace. Slightly acidic hop nose, some dustiness. Nice enough even if a little salty and with some metal. Very light but fine notes of apple and very subtle hop, dry and carrying some bite.

<i>Can (33 cl), thanks to gnoff and his friend</i>. Pale golden, medium white head. Grainy and slightly skunky, no hop aromas. Flat mouthfeel. Low sweetness, low bitterness, low of everything.
