tlind2 (1772) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2010
500 ml bottle. Copper color, off-white head. Slightly hoppy aroma with roasted malts. Malty flavor with some nuttiness. Fairly sweet flavor that’s somewhat off balance. Light body, medium carbonation.

mickut (305) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear, dark brown with red tint, small head. Taste is mostly sweet, with a burnt aftertaste. Palate is fairly thick, soft and medium bodied. Aromas have malts, molasses, caramel, bit of roast and hops.

gunnar (9696) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2010
Bottle at Silenus Pub, Budapest. Pours dark ruby/amber with a big frothy off-white head. Nice malty aroma. Taste is a good malty base, weak fruity hops, and some honey and caramel, long aftertaste, mild and sweet dominated.

tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2010
Pours clear dark red amber with fluffy tanned head. Roasted malts, fidges, toffey and dry hay aroma. Sweet caramel and malty flavor with notes of crispy floral and fruity. Sweet and crispy acidy on palate. Finishes with pear sweet to begin with turning into bitter hoppy. Very nice.

sayravai (4711) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2010
(Bottled, sampled 2010-03-12) Deep, dark copper with a smallish, firm and lacy head. Very mild aroma of woody hops and faint caramely malt. Flavor is mild as well, with some caramely malt, and a touch of herby hops - but only after warmed up a bit. Quite light body, almost watery palate, lots of CO2. Not exactly bad, but feels very bland and watered down. One of the worst from this fine brewery so far.

hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 26, 2010
I had a couple 500 ml bottles of this on a 12 hour steam train excursion north through the Scottish Highlands from Perth to Broomhill and back. This poured a deep copper color with a very, big and long lasting off-white head. The nose is mostly malt but there is a little ripe fruit and floral hops as well. The body is medium and the mouthfeel smooth and slick. The flavor is dominated by caramel malts with some hop bitterness showing that continues into the finish Very easy drinking brew;

FatPhil (17078) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 18, 2010
500ml bottle (Mallaskukko, Turku)
SImple malty aroma, rich graininess, soft and malty, some caramalt. Very drinkable, even quaaffable. Palate quite full, and surprisingly drinkable for a Greed Kerching beer.

2.3
Brix (660) - DENMARK - MAY 22, 2010
Tasted 2010-05-22. Bottle. Pours clear, amber with off-white head. Slightly hoppy scent. Too sweet and one-dimensional for my liking.

3.1
DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2010
Stunned by how much this smells like GK really; almond, dough, straw, Battenberg, hint of dog. There’s some hop there like pencil shavings. Jelly red with a diminishing, lacing cream head. Slips by pretty much unnoticed- caramel and watery almond; unobtrusive oak, egg custard aftertaste. Oat creaminess, diluted, trickling off slate. Quite tasty once it hits room temp, but ultimately a beer that’s brewed to be pleasant, unexceptional and easy to drink, and it is.

3.5
Sigmund (7916) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 27, 2010
500 ml bottle, as Belhaven Robert Burns Scottish Ale, bought in Denmark. ABV is 4.2%. Copper coloured beer, big and lasting off-white head. Predominantly malty aroma, but also some fruity hops and vinous notes, hints of berries, oak and honey. The flavour has notes of the same elements, but the hops are very moderate, and do not leave much bitterness for the aftertaste. Still a decent and very drinkable beer.
