Aaron68 (608) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2014
330 ml can @ Izakaya,Oslo. March 08, 2014 Beer enjoyed from a 200 ml glass Dark golden to amber in color with a thin white head and medium carbonation. Aroma is fruity,malty and a touch of citrus. Tastes a bit sweet and has a citrus touch in the background A bit thin and weak in taste and lacks a bit hop in my opinion.

Can from Gambrinus. The smell is very promising, but the taste was just a little bit too floral and malty. Small amount of banana and nuts which still were in balance but still I’d just say it is good for drinking, but not enjoying (no offence). Still a very nice beer!

NordicV (1912) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2014
Gyllengul öl med ett bra vitt skum. Doften är fruktig och blommig och med en lätt maltighet. Maltigheten mer framträdande i smaken.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014
33 cl can @ home, BBE 14/2014 (20.04.2014 according to sticker)
Also some other marking on can bottom: 140127
Aroma is a bit odd with vegetables, some grain and butter. Flavour has buttery tones, some grainy malt and hints of peas. Harsh and lager-like, too low on hops to be an APA. I won’t be having one after this night.

Cask @ Beer Belly, Osaka as ”Yona Yona Real Ale”. Rated on 12.09.2011
Very light aroma, slightly sweaty and stale with some hops. Also some sweet malt when it warms up. Very smooth palate. Flavour is bitterish, light and somewhat sweet with some harsh malt and berries. Rather rich for a real ale, but the berries ruin the show.

On sale at Hans Store in Seoul. Great bargain amongst all the other high priced imports in Korea. Cloudy amber pour. Citrus aroma. Refreshing sessionable ale...would be great for a summer BBQ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
