EchoShine (33) - Athens, - DEC 19, 2012
This just becomes embarrassingly worse. Taste of maltose. Not Irish. Got a great reminder of this the other day when I asked for a Sammy Adams that was listed with other Heineken swill from TGIFs in Athens. Waitress said they dont have SA anymore. So I picked this one. Tried this many times. Not gonna waste anymore time with this capitalistic swill.

BlackHaddock (6546) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2016
33cl bottle (BBD Sep 17) in my holiday studio on the island of Corfu on 7th Oct 16. Amber bronze body, beige head. Malty, sweet and thin bodied, did not take to it at all. I am sure I have had this beer before while in the mediterranean on holiday and it was richer and carried more body depth: this however was a sweet mess.

nathanvc (262) - Brugge, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle from an Esselunga supermarket in Lucca. Pours clear and amber to brown with a creamy, lasting, off-white head. Smells a bit weird. The aroma contains malts, toast, caramel and brown sugar. It tastes medium sweet and light bitter. The finish is long, dry and roasted. Light body and watery texture. Okay for once.
