MarkoNm (2740) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 10, 2014
Pours a light brown color, topped with small white head. Malty aroma, lots of grassy notes and slightly skunky. Taste is sweet, with again lots of grassy notes. Not nice. I don’t know if it’s gone bad, or just is bad.

Borresteijn (7036) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2014
33cl Bottle from an Ethiopian shop. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of some sweet malts, just light floral, light skunky, paper. Flavour is medium sweet, light malty, hint of sourness, paper, light dryness. Light bodied. Not the worst lager, expected less.

martinrumsam (565) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle. Dark gold with white head Aroma is bready with some lemon. Taste is sweet and some malt. Nothing special

FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark golden amber color with a huge creamy white head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish and tangy with notes of sour marsh and citrus. The flavor was tangy and sweet bread, sour mash and a hint of honey and citrus. Medium length tangy and sweet beady finish. Medium body. Blah.

crossovert (12874) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Literal smell of farts. Fizzy gold pour. Mostly water and vile regurgitation.

edsspoon (894) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Pours pale golden with a nice thick white head which slowly subsides. Malty aroma, some caramel. Tastes sweet and malty, aftertase of citrus hops and mild bitterness. Quite nice.

andrepintado (3397) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - OCT 13, 2013
33cl bottle thanks to Cunningham, straight from Norway! Color is gold and head is thin to medium. Taste is medium bitter which is ok. Carbonation is lively and aroma is quite cerealy but also balanced.

Nice straw/gold color; Light to medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of toasted sweet malt, hay, & grain; Flavor of slight sweet malt, cereal/corn, and grain; Fairly bland; Not terrible.
