Gangstergafje (1034) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2016
The beer has a simple look. It has that typical pilsener look. The color of the beer is golden yellow, with quite a rich golden glow. The beer is crystal clear and a lot of bubbles can be seen rising towards the top. On top of the beer, a crusty whit head is formed. The foam collapses quickly, to leave a soft thin drape. The smell is simple and very mild. I smell some fresh bitter hops and a sweet malty aroma. Its in quite good balance. However, its not very special. Its just pilsener, good for the thirst. The taste is also quite simple, not to use the word boring. There is a nice hoppy bitterness and a malty sweetness. The taste is a bit stronger than the smell. This is nice. All in all, a nice but simple pilsener, which is good against the thirst.

Tap at the holiday poolbar. Looks good. Beer starts mild, notes of lemon, a bit metallically. Mild hoppy-bitter background. Easy to drink. Better than exspected.

labeerinthum (799) - Milano, ITALY - MAY 8, 2016
Lattina Shumensko 1882 ABV 4,8%. Lintensit olfattiva normale e la persistenza olfattiva corta. Il gusto al naso rimanda a percezioni di orzo. Il cappello di schiuma ha una scarsa tenuta, con la grandezza delle bollicine che grossolana, a carbonazione media. La consistenza del liquido limpida. Le bollicine sono poche e fini. La carbonazione morbida. Il colore giallo paglierino. Il corpo snello. Lamaro leggero. Lintensit gustativa leggera e la persistenza gustativa corta. Il gusto piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto veloce. Al palato arrivano sentori di pane e cereali.

jamaty (2112) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 22, 2016
Dorada nebulosa, un dedo de espuma. Aroma cereal. En boca nada que aportar. Una ms de cientos de lager de produccin. En este caso ni dulce ni amarga en exceso, cierto tono metlico y especiado y gas presente. Y aguda, bastante.

Draft. Clear golden yellow color with a 2cm white head. Aroma is typical pilsner malt, grains, with a touch of grassy hops. The flavor is also more interesting than most pale lagers, but still a pale lager, which is a flat-out boring style. Slightly sweet malt base with a touch of hops at the end. Light, crisp, carbonated, and drinkable.
