asedzie (830) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 14, 2017
Bottle from Lianhua grocery store near Changshou rd. subway in Shanghai - at 16 rmb not a bad price at all. Pours hazy golden with lasting foamy head. Nose has assertive coriander, light aromatic noble hops and some bready malt. Flavor is mild but very interesting- some very nicely textured barley malt, quite dry, a bit of tasty and almost savory proprietary yeast, finish has some light herbs and ends with mildly citrus hop bitterness notes.

Stew41 (2040) - Phuket, THAILAND - AUG 12, 2017
Quite the ’non-event’ A bit ho-hum but I guess that’s the style talking to some extent.. Light palate weight and even lighter flavour impact. Indeed the latter is almost non-existent. Bad bottle? I can barely detect any primary flavours!

Lonick (2168) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2017
Keg, 6 North, Edinburgh. Pours golden big white head. Nose is fruit cake, christmas cake, banana bread. Taste is along the same lines but with a big cinnamon dollop as well.

3.6
Maits (509) - ESTONIA - JUL 27, 2017
Golden beer with nice big head. Aroma is sweet banana, floral, yeast. Taste is nicely balanced between sweet and bitter. Thin body, but full taste, citrus and yeasty.

3.4
The Etruscan (692) - Tuscany, ITALY - JUL 23, 2017
White full lasting head. Pale honey colour. Aroma is moderately hoppy with light fruity (pear, plume) and light spicy notes. Flavor is moderately malty with fruity (pear, plume and apple) and light hoppy and spicy tones, ending in a balanced finish. Light to medium bodied.

3.7
Heidbummer (686) - SCOTLAND - JUL 21, 2017
Bottle, Wetherspoon’s. Pours a beautiful gold with generous foamy head. Well carbonated. Soft citrus, yeasty nose. Crisp, refreshing but decent depth to it with layers of yeast and citrus. Nice summer beer.

3.9
pitch992 (217) - SLOVENIA - JUL 17, 2017
bananas (esters), phenolics, some green apple notes, bubblegum, raisins, grapes. Combination of sweet, somewhat bitter, again phenolics, some alcohol, smooth, and high carbonation with a lovely fluffy mouthfeel. Overall great but with a somewhat impaired drinkability
