Bricks (1148) - Delaware, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Malty smell. Great color and appearance. Taste is good, although not strong. Thinnish mouthfeel. Pretty good.


1.6
Quick3Beers (1362) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2017
Pours a ruddy iced tea color from a tap. Smells sort of like cool weak tea as well, but the flavor is more like weak coffee, or like water run through a coffee maker with no grinds in it, just a hint of the baked on shmeg inside the machine. Not good.

1.9
Iznogud (4125) - CROATIA - OCT 2, 2017
Bottle, 500 ml from Vrutak, Zagreb. Pours copper with small white head. Malty, some fruit, spices, caramel, watery. Quite bland. Light to medium bodied.

2.7
hrabren (1370) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 24, 2017
Bottle from Lidl. Clear golden, small off-white head. Malts and light spicey, faint fruity hops. Sweet and fake. Light to medium body, soft to moderate carbonation, light hoppy finish. Average.

3.8
tekstr1der (495) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 18, 2017
copper pour with lasting finger of off white foam (4.0). Aroma is bready malt and a touch of caramel (4.0). Flavor is similar with a slight sweetness (3.75). Smooth and balanced throughout (3.75), finishes ever so slightly dry. (3.75)

Piepenhenrich (1198) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2017
God amber Ale, with a focus on malty flavors with a gentle bitterness. Like.

2.7
Grumbo (3847) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2017
Bottle. Backlog rating from bottle collection and historic scoring. Source not recorded. No tasting notes kept, just rating.

2.8
midovark (1046) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - SEP 5, 2017
0.5 l can @ Mijas. Copper coloured with white head. Slight malty-biscuits aroma, followed by the same notes in taste, but quite faintly. Way too light and watery.

2.2
JohnRMurdoch (5007) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 29, 2017
500ml clear bottle - present. Orange brown, beige head. Sour vegetable caramel malt aroma and flavour. Sweet metallic aftertaste. Nasty standard supermarket bitter.

2.4
darioklc (819) - Karlovac, CROATIA - AUG 26, 2017
5% alk. Kupljeno u Lidlu. Još jedna nezanimljiva piva. Može se popiti ali daleko od da se kaže da je ludilo.

3.6

Greetings from Bydgoszcz, Poland to all Beer Geeks and Hopheads around the world!
