Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Pours a clear golden color with a big, cascading white head. Aroma pretty yeasty with some sweet apple notes, light woodiness and ends with an extremely sour profile at the end. Flavor starts off with a very light grainy flavor, moves into a woody and slightly vanilla middle and ends with a very pronounced melted caramel candy flavor minus the sugar. Mouth feel of the beer was okay with a decent density, a very creamy feeling from the finer carbonation and the alcohol of the brew is noticeable but doesn’t really detract from the lack of flavors. Overall the beer wasn’t that exciting and the slightly soured aroma combined with the weak flavor up front just created a very bland beer as a whole.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2009
Pours a clear gold, with a thin white head. Mild aroma of yeast, wheat, oak, and a hint of something like caraway. Flavor dominated by bitter hops, yeast, tangy alcohol, and fruty notes such as grapes or peach. Alcohol lingers in the aftertaste in a way I find a bit tiring. Mild carbonation, fullish body, oily mouthfeel. Smooth and mellow -- unfortunately all other flavors are overshadowed by the alcohol.

theisti (4206) - Kansas, USA - MAY 26, 2009
750 ml bottle from Gomers North. Best before 05.28.09 stamped on label. This was on sale for $3.99 if I recall correctly. Pour is clear golden with a lot of carbonation and a billowing 3 inch off white head. Head is quite lasting. Some nice full lacing. Aroma of oft caramel sweet malt, floral spice earthiness and an extra dose of honey sweetness. All of it is quite soft and refined. Taste is the nose, predominantly the sweet malt, though the floral earthy spice yeast characteristics add a lot of flavor in the back. There is also an apple and pear fruitiness that adds complexity. As it warmed, some peanut shell presented itself. Palate is medium, smooth and slick. Well carbonated with a longish somewhat unclean finish. Nice enough, though I am admittedly still figuring BdG out. Highlight of this beer was the view of downtown Denver at night from the balcony of the Warwick.

TET (3210) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2009
Golden beer with medium white head. Lot of grass, some sweetness and parfum-like flowerness are found in the aroma. Flavour is slightly sweet that turns more dry in the end, slightly spicy, yeasty and sophisticated parfym and flowers. Surprisingly very light but still slippery and nice to drink. La Divine is quite nice beer with pleasant nuancees, but still there should be something more in each sector. Beer for starting beer raters?
