McTapps (3601) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep golden colour with low head. Nose of ripe hops. Taste of a weak Heller Bock or of a strong Dortmunder/Helles, means rich grains, malt, ripe mild fruits and the feeling you have on a sunny summer day. Surprisingly nice PL.

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2012
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Golden color. Sweet honeyish and grainy aroma with hint of floral citrus. Dryish honeyish flavor with herbal, earthy and peppery hops. Herbal bitterness and some roughness in finish. Light bodied. Not bad in international lager category.

larsga (6139) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2012
Medium white head. Coppery body. Caramelly sherry aroma with papery floral notes. Dry-sweet spicy caramelly grassy taste with grainy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish herbal caramelly grainy aftertaste with floral notes. Really nice. Completely unexpected that this should be such a high-quality brew. (0.33l bottle from some supermarket in Moscow.)

ogivlado (5584) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottled 500ml. -from Billa Kiev or random kiosk, Ukraine. Shared with Marko and luttonm. Golden coloured, small white head, discreet grainy nose. Sweetish malty, light grainy/hoppy/vegetables taste. Not so bad but still pretty ordinary beer.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle in Chisinau, Moldova. Clear bright golden color, thick white head with decent retention. Aroma of citrus, straw, subtle boiled broccoli. Taste is watery straw with subtle lemon.

luttonm (2170) - Belgrade, SERBIA - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle with Ogi and Marko. Zagreb via Ukraine. Clear gold, minor head. Stagnant water, sour. Fizzy golden malt, sweet full body, nicely balanced. Coating feel. Normal lager notes but pretty nice overall.

Marko (3885) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 21, 2012
This seems to be getting a huge distribution. Ogi got it somewhere in Ukraine though. Anyway, poured a tiny white head on top of a golden body. Almost no nose, slightly sweaty and grainy. Empty creamy grainy taste, very light somewhat crude notes of something that’s illegible. Meh.

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2012
New Beer Distributors, NY 50cl ($2.25): Pours a golden color with barely any head. Aroma is near nil, mostly just grain and nail polish. Taste is just pretty sweet Euro-lager. There is barely a hop to be seen. Apparently Russian hipsters drink this. I’ll take PBR over this any day.
