2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, pours a murky orange amber with a small off-white head. Nose is super infected and oxidized - lots of vinegar and acetic notes. Flavour is along the same lines - tastes more like an acetic, vinegary sour beer. Not a disaster but not very pleasant. Meh.

SWING-TOP 33 CL from ned and artemb. Deep red and slightly hazy, small tan head. The aroma is a bizarre yet nice combination of sweet fruit liqueur and clove-like spice. The taste is very sweet, candied fruit, a touch of alcohol and light spice in the finish. With all the sweetness, the beer does not feel sticky or cloying. Very good.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Cousin Uri for the bottle! Hazy, fizzy brown. A little spicy and caramel aroma and a little alcoholic. Alcoholic, sugary and sweet taste. Smooth and silky, very sugary and full-bodied.

Bottle, 330 ml from u Medvidku, Prague. Courtesy of and shared with JFK. Pours amber brown with tan head. Caramel malty aroma with fruity citric notes. Sweet caramel malty flavor, ripe fruit, raisins, acidic note. I’m not a fan of sweet beers so this was a pleasant surprise because I expected even more sweetness. Interesting.
