downender (6775) - 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 (2912) - 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 (830) - LATVIA - APR 4, 2015
Brown ckear with medium very fastly dissappearing head. Malty taste with good refreshing sweet and sour balance.

Grumbo (809) - 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 (5456) - 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 (3387) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2014

djoeye (2220) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2014
One pint can 0.5%abv pours an offwhite head on clear dark ruby-ish body, some lacings. Weird scents, nuts, caramel, leather-gum to the nose. Better kvass in taste, fruity prunes, plums, juicy sweet malts and wort to the tongue. Sweet juiciness and low carbonation on palate, nice. Sweet limonade, fruits, plums, juice in finish. Overall nice. B@Rimi Bauska LV, shared with my mentor Rune in Tromsø.

Rune (9063) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2014
Pint, can, kindly shared by djoeye. Deep mahogany coloured body. Lasting tan-coloured head. Mid-dry caramel nose with a oat like touch. Taste of caramel malts, bread and dried fruits. Short ending. Alright as a kvass soft drink (Tromsø 26.03.2014).

Vells (921) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 23, 2014
Bit overcarbonated for me. Otherwise quite drinkable, bready , rye with some notes of fruits, malts. Mostly sweet with some notes of sour. Drinkable but quite unbalanced

Marduk (3607) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 22, 2014
1L PET bottle. Dark brown color. Small size head, disappears. Sweet, roast, bready, slightly buttery and raisins in aroma. So bready, nice roast, sweet taste. Bit plasticy notes, but not really disturbed by those. Nice one.
