Koelschtrinker (17292) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Getreidig-malziger Antrunk, etwas wässrig. Âb dem Mittelteil unauffällig, minimal hopfig, etas herb, getreidig, aber nichts sticht wirklich hervor. Die Hopfigkeit wird zum Abgang stärker, dort aber wird das Bier wässrig. Ausdruckslos. Test vom 30.11.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,8,9,7,10,7

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 10, 2010
03/10 0.5 l bottle from Vrutak store in Zagreb. It poured golden body with big loose head. Its aroma was strange, dusty, sharp and dry. Slightly bitterish flavor and very little fruity. Weak cardboard note is present. Thinner in body, watery, with pertaining finish, where only some bitterness shows up. Not so bad but just boring.

Marko (4948) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 4, 2010
0.5l bottle from Vrutak, Zagreb that heavy got and shared with me. Poured a deep hazy golden body with a thick white head. Dusty, slightly peachy nose. More of the same dusty peachy maltiness in the taste, light bitterness and herbal notes. Drinkable and fruity, watery but not bad.

floydian1 (1354) - FNQ, Australia, - AUG 21, 2010
Bottle. Dark amber hazy beer with a small white head that provides good lacing. Nose and taste is caramel malts and oranges with a medium citrus/floral hop bitterness to the finish. Nice smooth texture with a lightish body and low creamy carbonation. Eminently sessionable.

Svesse (7849) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2009
(Bottle, Huxleys, Heathrow Airport, London, 29 Nov 2009) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with orange and grainy malt. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange, apricots and dusty hops in the finish. Below medium body, mainly dry. Well balanced and tasty, but lacking the complexity and earthy bitterness of the cask version.

bobinlondon (1288) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2009
Bottle from Majestic wines (89p a 500ml) at my brother’s. Amber/gold with a white head. Needs to be served cold as a fridge beer. When it warms up the shortcomings of Well’s industrial scale brewing spoil the refreshment.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2009
Golden with white head. Grass and sweaty changing room type smell, although not too unpleasant. Taste is a little metallic unfortunately. Disappointing seeing as I really enjoyed some of their other beers
