madsberg (11655) - Sborg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2007
Bottled (Thx. to Myrup for sharing). Pale yellow coloured. Clear. Pale white fluffy head. Aroma is quite grainy and grassy. Has some fruity notes. Flavour is quite sweet and grassy. A bit thin. Watery mouthfeel, which leads to a vaguely bitter end.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of Myrup. Nepalese version brewed by Sungold brewery. Pours a pale golden with tiny impurities and a rough, white head. Some fruit in the nose. Medium-bodied with an unclean malt profile. No bitterness. Drinkable though. 290407

mabel (8735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2006
[062-20061014] 330mL. Smells like stale straw. Light pine-coloured body with a very fast-disappearing foamy white head and a few big bubbles. Drinking this is like drinking sucking on dirty, soggy paper money -- more specifically, money thats been sitting in a pool of pungent, skunky spice-water. Palate is light bodied with an ok aftertaste. Overall its pretty terrible and very hard not to notice that rocky spice.

HenrikSoegaard (13827) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2006
Can. My beer no. 800. Brought to me by my Brother from a trip to India. Not the best celebration beer, but a special one. No head. Just ok aroma, bad bready and sweet taste. Short finish, and exsremely watery.

GRM (3956) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2006
Green bottle, 330 ml, expiry date: 2/2005 (nice to have a beer cellar that conserves beers well though this one was not really worth it); eye: light straw, clear, white head that disappears rapidly, no effervescence; nose: I will write down for posterity "grainy malt that has been aired way too long" because it seriously does not smell much of anything; mouth: I believe that I detected a hint of corn but would not bet my life on it, definitely caramel though, and it also somehow tastes like 7-UP, light body in fact almost ghostly, watery texture, fair carbonation; overall: I guess you have to taste it to note it FRANAIS Bouteille verte, 330 ml, 5 %, date de premption : 2/2005 (cest bien davoir une cave bire qui conserve bien les bires mme celle-l bien quelle ne le mritait pas); couleur : paille, claire, petite mousse blanche qui disparat rapidement, pas deffervescence; nez : on va crire pour la postrit malt granuleux suc longtemps parce que a ne sent vraiment pas grand-chose; bouche : je pense que jai dtect du mas mais je ne parierais pas l-dessus, dfinitivement du caramel, et on dirait le got du 7-UP en finale, corps lger plutt fantmatique en fait, texture aqueuse, carbonatation dcente; en rsum : jimagine quil faut au moins y goter pour la noter

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2006
Bottle shared with GregClow, Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, and Jerc, I brought it. Musty, dusty aroma - like a dirty a/c filter. Bad stuff. Very light yellow, no head. Tainted water taste. Truly dreadful and a poor excuse for a beer. An obvious 0.5, I cant find anything worth giving a score for.

blankboy (7593) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & tupalev -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a pale sickly yellow with a spare white head. Aroma of fucking crap, like ass residue. The flavour is one of the worst things Ive ever tasted, whats wrong with this stuff? its so damn awful. Im mad just thinking about this "beer".

HogTownHarry (6564) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2006
Bottle (330ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and Tupalev - tupalevs bottle. Hey, beer thats made to go "well" with spicy food, this ought to be good. Poured incredibly pale yellow with minimal head - musty aroma, spoiled grain, swimming pool pee after the diabetic youth class, tastes - at best - like sour grass after a spraying of pesticides - nasty sticky harsh mouthfeel: yep, this is an ought-point-five.
