larsga (6509) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2008
Medium offwhite head. Yellow body with light carbonation. Rubbery grainy aroma with sugary notes. Dry-sweet sugary mealy grainy taste. Harsh dusty mouthfeel, which I did not like. Dry grassy aftertaste with papery notes. Not a good beer. (0.33l can from Knut Albert, labelled Union Svetlo Pivo.)

KnutAlbert (6349) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2008
Can from Slovenia. Malty, quite sweet lager. Pale, average carbonation. Some dusty hoppiness in the finish, but the almost saccarine swetness wins by a thread. Nice, if not outstanding.

DruncanVeasey (7424) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2008
Tinned. Biscuity, buttery fizz and faint grassy hops on nose. Slick, slightly rubbery and gnawing with pencilly conifer again. Biscuity pale malts and popcorn. Still tastes pretty sweet after an 11hr drive to Dubrovnik and back. Teaspoon of vomit? It’s all about the popcorn really. Licked envelope and cardboard. Very disappointing after the Temno, but happily forcing it down.

A very nice light golden pils with great clarity and a fizzy white head. Very crisp and refreshing the whole way though with spicy hops and a long dry finish.that is my beer,drinking every day

canned. light golden color, typical for lagers, quickly vanishing white head. Weak malty nose. Flavour is malty and with corn like Hungarian beers. Reffreshing bitterness at the end. Nice!

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 25, 2008
Dark yellow colored, little white head. Lemon dominates aroma with some cardboard also here, not too good one. Medium bodied. Flavor has stronger cardboard with some lemony-safty tone also. Aftertaste is slightly estery.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours pale golden w/ minimal froth and lacing. Average skunky malty aromas. Light to medium nectar w/ ample carbonation. Grainy malt based w/ chalky nuances. The finish is bittered mildly. Strong flavored and very old world.
