humlelala (1371) - DENMARK - JAN 26, 2017
(33 cl can from Arnes Bottleshop & Bar; BBD: March 21st 2017) Poured at cellar temperature into a stemmed wine glass reveals a hazy copper body with two fingers of tan head that recedes to about one finger with beautiful lace. Aroma is really quite pleasant in the sense that it has a good amalgam of hops and malt. Theres a sprucy, resiny quality to the hops with a hint of grapefruit which blend in well with the biscuity malt. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a lingering, aromatic finish. Flavour has plenty of aroma notes and is very well balanced with moderate bitterness and a balancing toffee sweetness that never gets overwhelming. I was already impressed from the small sip of my girlfriends glass of this beer, when we visited Brewbot in Belfast back in 2015 and Im happy to be able to revisit and make a proper rating. It is certainly very drinkable and places itself somewhere between BrewDogs 5AM Saint and Maines Red Wheelbarrow in my top-5 of amber ales.

UjoKlobasa (859) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 19, 2017
On tap. Red color. Probably a bad batch, since aroma included burned plastics. Otherwise caramel is dominant in this one. Not very good.

ANZUShophunter (401) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2017
From can in tapered shaker. Pours rusty red in appearance with solid one finger head. An earthy aroma blended with citrus and theres a bit of orange peel on the palate as well. Lively carbonation and hop bitterness make for a zesty finish. Nice and refreshing on the hottest day of the year.
