FatPhil (15560) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 14, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2011 Bottle (ChrisO Pre-GBBF2011 "Donkey Dork Lord" Shindig) (4:2:5:2:7=2.0)
Plasticky aroma, but fortunately tastes better than it smells. No balance and under-attentuated. Good hopping, but it just doesnt work.
Rerate: Bottle (RBESG2011, Grand Tasting) (3:2:3:2:7=1.7)
Dry papery aroma. Nasty vegetal taste. Very dull. Honey in the finish, but its a bad lager

Bottle at RBESG Grand Tasting, held at Dean Swift. Medium blonde color. Great green hop aroma, with pilsner malt and sweet lemon. Nice nose. Grainy, biscuity flavor, with bready malt and nice hop bitterness. A nice lager-like ale.

TheJestersBeer (2429) - SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2011
330ml bottle. Pours a clear, medium gold, with a thin, cask-like, white head. The aroma is predominantly malty, somewhat corny, with a citrusy hoppiness, and notes of fruits, bean sprouts and earth. Dry, medium bodied, medium bitterness, quite high CO2. Malty, somewhat robust taste, the citrus-ilke hops return, along with the corny/earthy elements, some yeast, dough, sprouts. Finishes rather bitter, earthy and musky. (2011-08-10)

Light bodied with fine carbonation. Bit more straw bitters in the finish, faint bread. Not memorable. (3) Had another go at this at RBESG 2011 Grand Tasting at The Dean Swift, London.

Defreni (3100) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2011
Flaske: >Pilsnergul klar l med et fint hvidt skumhoved. Duft af engelsk humle og en smule dild. Smagen er frisk humlet med en god del bitterhed. God lawn mower beer mske med en tand for meget bitterhumle i forhold til smagshumle. Men mere en apa end en golden ale. Fin l.
