Holmen1 (4727) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2016
Boks fra Bulgarsk mad i Rantzausgade, siste dag på hytta: rødbrun med kort, tynt bruseskum. Aroma av rugbrød, og smaken er søt som vørterøl. Heldigvis ingen ettersmak å snakke om, bortsett fra noe sukkeraktig. I vasken med den!

jjsint (2251) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2016
Can from Kubus, Bedford. Light brownish red and thinnish-clear. Well-carbonated. Chocolate malt, smoke, caraway. Weird and not very pleasant. Tastes OK, almost good. Sweet and a bit spicy. Thin palate and weird adjunct aftertaste. No thanks.

phfyysik (630) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 27, 2016
Pours caramel brown with medium head which goes quickly. Aroma is weak, some caramel, sweetness, syrup. Taste is also quite sweet, some bread, caramel, syrup. Easy to drink but not the greatest one.

downender (7842) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2015
Can from an East European grocery store in Horfield, Bristol. Very sweet, bready malts and caramel, a suggestion of some fruit and syrupy finish. More soft drink than beer, a gluggable novelty.

The_Osprey (5921) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Pint can BB Aug 2015, 0.5%, from a shop in Leyton. Cola brown, sparkling, initial head dissipates quickly, no lacing. Aroma is bready, syrupy. Body is medium, soft carbonation, smooth. A bit sugary and tooth-coating. Taste is rye, treacle, a touch of something sour, cola. Very simple. Alright - easy going and pretty cheap if nothing else.

Alusmamuts (1496) - LATVIA - APR 4, 2015
Brown ckear with medium very fastly dissappearing head. Malty taste with good refreshing sweet and sour balance.

Grumbo (1216) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Can from Rasputin’s, Ipswich. Chestnut brown coloured beer with a tan head. Sweet, malty aroma with caramel, syrup and prunes. Very sweet. Thin texture, soft carbonation, sweet finish. It’s ok but sweetness is rather overpowering.

ManVsBeer (8489) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle from Continental Food Store, Wakefield. Clear dark amber-red with a carbonation and next to no head. Has a high malt factor with plenty of bread in its taste as well as yeast in the nose. Quite sweet but also soured.

visionthing (4725) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 28, 2014
Pint can from Rimi in Riga. Pours chesnut cloured with a tan head. Malty aroma with rye bread and caramel. Fairly sweet. Bready and a bit watery, but fairly drinkable.
