Drake (13954) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Served on draft at Mellow Mushroom Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of floral hops and caramel malts. The taste is caramel, toasted malts, bitter leafy hops and a faint bit of fruitiness. Medium bodied. Very drinkable.

NosirIwont (2549) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2011
Can. Pours a clear light brown with a creamy beige head. Weak aroma; sweetish and hoppy. Okay in itself, but just too weak – would have scored higher if it had been more powerful. Flavour is fruity and hoppy (with a bit of citrus) with notes of winegums (like Bassett’s blackcurrant). Bitter, malty finish, tart with a fruity touch. 22.10.10.

Rasmus40 (21343) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2011
Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, malty, caramel and light hoppy. Light sweet flavor and only light bitter. Thin body and watery. Boring. 070111

It’s dark red amber with a dense, creamy and lasting head. The aroma is mild with notes of caramel, malt and light fruit. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of caramel, malt, fruit, and the finish is dry. It’s uncomplicated and easy to drink.
