Bottle from Kenwood Liquor. You know, scientists now say Europa, one of Jupiters moons, has an icy surface 10 miles thick, covering an ocean 100 miles deep, which could have the ingredients necessary for life. And Ill bet they make better beer than this. Despite the brown bottle, its got a skunky smell. Perhaps I should consider it doesnt have a date and probably sat on the shelf for months, but Im feeling too ornery. Hazy straw color, a layer of fizz. Taste is mostly of adjuncts, some rubbing alcohol, and a little bitterness. I feel like Im done with it now, but theres half a bottle to go.

JPDIPSO (6178) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Hazed dirty golden color. Moderate sized, light beige head. Sweet aromas, with some toasted malt and apple cider. A bit of grass and almond. Fuller feel, but a touch lifeless. Sweeter flavors. Middle gains some grain and mild flora. Slightly acidic in the finish and linger, bringing back the reminders of cider.

crossovert (12513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2017
33cl can, nearly frozen. Pours a pale yellow, big white foamy head. It smells skunky and "beery". Im fairly certain this is quite fresh because Ive never seen it and the carton it was in proclaimed "new". It smells pretty good though once you let the sulphur die down. Smells like bread and herbs, rice, it smells fresh. Flavor isnt as good, it is sulphury, salty, but dry and crackery, hint of maltiness. Its ok. One of the better ones in thsi style.

johnnnniee (4200) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Bottle in trade from Solidfunk, thanks for the country! Slightly hazy light golden color with a thin wisp of a white head. Light skunk, pilsner and a touch of floral earth and faint metal. Better than I expected really.

Cimbasso (886) - - NOV 9, 2016
Sampled from a can purchased in Shanghai. Crystal clear gold colour with a white head that quickly dissipates. Little aroma, and a corn syrup malt flavour. Typical Asian lager - refreshing, light and without much flavour. Watery mouthfeel and little bitterness. Some grassiness and a sweetish rice flavours, but generally rather underwhelming.

Jow (3864) - New York, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle at Peculier Pub in NYC. Dirty blonde pour and I mean dirty. No good nose. Tastes of grass, cardboard, lemon lime, sour milk. Not very good but still drinkable

Iphonephan (6882) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2016
From a bottle. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma of rice and corn. Flavors same. Pretty typical Asian lager.
