sulawang (896) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2016
Visual: (cellared for 3 years). Pours clear apple juice yellow with a quickly dissipating small head, large bubbles clinging to the side of the glass, varied speed singular streams. Nose: yeasty, sweet liquid lager malt (lvl-4)-pungency Attack: thicker viscosity, Mid-palate: citrusy tangy sourness, lacking CO2 mouthfeel, (lvl-6-sweetness), thin body-no depth, bitter hops, hints of corn, hints of puke Finish: lingering bitter hops Summary: This one loses carbonation fast and drinks quite thin compared to beers without a corn adjunct. At least the hops are there but nothing much else. Skip it.

imdownthepub (12588) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2016
Bottled, 500ml from Clarkes of Whitby, North Yorkshire. Pale gold with no head. Really thin, soured grain beer with quite an eggy nose. Wet, damp malt notes then a thin citrus note. Pretty poor unfortunately.

Jultsu (565) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2016
BBE 03-2016. Peruslagerin väri, olematon vaahto. Lääkkeenmakea tuoksu, laimeahkon maltainen ja lievän katkera suutuntuma, vahvahko kurkussa tuntuva jälkifiilis. Ei toimi.

koshack (1134) - Gdañsk, POLAND - DEC 9, 2015
Ciemno słomkowe, zamglone. Piana kremowa, biała, drobna. W aromacie słodowe z lekką nuta ziołową. W smaku średnia goryczka. Przyjemna. Smak lekki. Niewiele ciała, ale nie jest wodniste. Dobre piwo.

FatPhil (12725) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 30, 2015
500ml bottle (K Citymarket, Helsinki)
Simple malty aroma, a bit stinky. Pale, brief head. Sticky malty palate. Some chemical bitter hops. Totally clear, claims to be "real ale" - that’s a fucking lie. -4 overall for bullshit on the label. Rough harsh liquid, do not want.

martjoobolut (2517) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle (shared by fatphil, thanks!). Pours clear yellow with white head. Aroma is grass, malt, sweet, some vegetables. Flavor is sweet, malt, grass, some bitterness. Finish is dry bitter. Overall: not good, but not awful.

suurjuust (2589) - ESTONIA - OCT 30, 2015
Clear pale straw, small frothy white head. Nose is grassy and perfumey hops, mild grainy sweetness. Flavor is pretty perfumey, hops, grainy malt. Hoppy finish. Quaffable, but nothing special.
