hfmejias (1282) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2013
330 ml. Bottle. Poured brown clear with a little off white head. Aroma of malts, bread and perhaps caramel. Taste consistent a little bit of hops (some bitterness to it), caramel sweetness and a bit of yeast, some wateriness to it. It is not bad, but nothing really great about it either.

17Beer (286) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 19, 2017
Malty aromas with a hops note. Pours a clear brown gold with a big tight white head and lots of lacing. A nice sour nutty flavor well balanced with short finish. Low carbonation and a slick mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

Bijl (404) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2017
Lichtbruin, helder, crmekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma: Karamel, iets kruiden, iets mouten. Smaak is van hetzelfde. Vrij dun en waterig....weinig hoppig. Niet super.

BeerNinjaUK (413) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2017
Bought this by mistake as "Tyne and Wear" is missing from my counties list and I thought this would fit the bill. Doh! Its basically a very dull version of loads of other English ales averaged out. Sorry, cant get enthused.

Kauge (1760) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 9, 2017
Bottle from a local shop, Tallinn. BB 31.07.2017. Pretty bad stuff, not sure why I got this. The kind of stuff that makes you wanna go brush your teeth. Caramelly sweet, watery, dryish shallow hoppy finish. Note: label says it includes heat-processed wheat, glucose syrup and food colouring.
