Bottle at Sheraton Hotel, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Golden yellow, thin white head. Aroma of grass and alcohol. Mixed malt sweetness and bitter taste. Boring.

omhper (25740) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2005
Bottled. Clear golden, small head. Fruity, somewhat sweet and light bodied. The mouthfeel is slightly raw and harsh. Grassy finish with some bitterness. Very average beer with not much character, but at least no very evident real flaws.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Clear, golden with a white head. Weird aroma of cat’s pee. Medium body, sweetish malt and then again this acidic accent of urine. Subdued bitterness. 171207

Oakes (18828) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
Golden-straw colour with lots of sparkle. Grainy, slightly industrial nose with aged herbal hoppiness. Malty start, finishes slightly tart. Quite sweet throughout, with some very light herbal hop flavour but no bitterness.

DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Mom for this bottle! Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, a bit of hay and a faint grassy hint. Sweetish grainy flavor with a papery hint and faint bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied. Pretty non-offensive and drinkable.

crossovert (13909) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Literal smell of farts. Fizzy gold pour. Mostly water and vile regurgitation.
