Olhão 22/7 2016. 75 cl bottle from Aldi. Some Abbey alcove in divideret light on the label trio assure me that a lot of monks has been involved in producing this beer. Pours clear golden yellow with small white head. Dissipates quickly leaving only remnants of foam. Lively bubbles running rampart. Aroma is quite light. Some Belgian yeast, lemon, banana and metallic alcohol. Strong carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is medium sour with rather strong sweetness as the beer heats up. Aftertaste is mellow and sweet. Certainly ok for a beer from Aldi (which can be pretty dodgy). Somebody called this a "Poor Man’s Leffe". Kind of nice that you can get a decent brew even at the end of the month.

Well, it’s bad. As bad as Desperados in fact, depends which one you’ll think being the worst after that. Tequila flavour is as chemical as it is possible to be, and leaves a bad aftertaste in mouth. Get something else if you want casual beers, there’s both cheaper and better ones everywhere... DISAPPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

Well, obviously, this beer is neither great or enjoyable for a degustation, but it works well for what it worth. Affordable, interesting but not over-the-top alcohol level, it?s something you might get for any drunk evening with your friends, as they won?t notice this beer is not really good in mouth. I still prefer 1l of the regular one than 50cl of this upgraded version... PARTIALLY APPROVED BY TAVERNY?S BLACK METAL CREW!

500ml can from Vival, Bidart. Pours clear yellow gold with a persistent thin white head. Aromas of corn and farts. Over-cooked cabbage. Compost. Taste is mulchy, kind of semi-digested, semi-rotted compost. Fresh, but rotten. Vomity finish.

Keg at Chez Marie Bar, Eguisheim, Sunday 19th June 2016 Pours very dark brown in colour with a little glint of red, malty nose. Woah.... shine a light l, this is so, so sweet, too malty no hops.

0,33 l Flasche. Aroma: süßlich, leichtes Röstaroma, leicht getreidig. Erscheinung: Dunkelrotes Bier, cremefarbener, feinporiger Schaum, der recht schnell abbaut, viele Kohlensäure-Bläschen am Glas. Geschmack: Bitterschokolade, leichte Kaffeenote, süß (Glucose und Zucker sind auf der Zutatenliste). Nachgeschmack: Kohlensäure prickelt auf der Zunge, vornehmlich die Süße hält sich. Gesamt: trinkbar, nichts außergewöhnliches.

Bottled, 500ml at Academie de la Biere, Strasbourg, France. Dark brown with beige head. An overly sweet beer, fruity but with a carbonated, wet cardboard flavour. There is a blackberry fruitiness and a little boiled toffee, malty close. Not great.

From Eroski. In shaker glass. At lunch, with cookes potatoes with tuna and eggs. No foam, nasty dark gold colour and not much taste nor aroma apart from a small metallicity. No trace of the lemon, at least of a natural one

500ml can. Dark brown colour, looks to be clear. Beige cap of foam that does not last, leaves light lacing behind. The nose has a little chocolate and metallic notes with light sweetness. Taste is sweet, notes of chocolate, light roasted malt and a little metal. On the sweet side, but I liked it.

500ml can pours a deep amber (almost black) color with a finger of off-white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits and caramel with some grassy and metallic notes. Taste is a dark fruity and malt sweetness with a light grassy bitterness with some metallic bits. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Overall, a typical dark lager with a decent blend of flavors.

Bue chez Milinf. Bière acajou avec très fin col de mousse sur 2mm. Pas de carbonation. Arôme sur le malt torréfié, café froid léger. Final sur le caramel et le malt. Léger chocolat et café. Bière douce et sucrée agréable, mais vite bourrative.

Une pils rehaussée d’un final céréalier sucré pas désagréable qui donne un faux air de miel et d’orge malté. Rien de plus, reste une pils industrielle sans intérêt.

Brauperle 10.5 Super Strong / Extra Forte
Pełen termin do 02.2016 ekstrakt 24 zachęcił mnie do rocznego przechowywania. Kolor bursztynowy, z drobinkami osadu, piana średnia, niska, redukuje do obrączki (ale po zamieszaniu chętnie się buduje) więc jest trwała. Aromat słodowość, rodzynki, domowe wino z owoców z sadu (gruszki, jabłka). Smak słodycz, przyjemna owocowość, niskie nasycenie. Bardzo pozytywne zaskoczenie.

Can shared at home. Clear golden with quite a big white head. Very unusual aromas up front, like leek pie? Creamy and grassy at the same time. Some cardboard and stale hops, dusty, light musty malts. Light sweet and very light bitter. Light bodied. Quite bad.
