Ungstrup (35912) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2016

FatPhil (15154) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2015
330ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
Outragious limey hop extract aroma, quite a turn-off. Shame, as theyre clearly trying to pretend that they care about hops. Ugh, a slickly bland creamy malt, something makes me gag just a little. Weak watery palate, but fitting carbonation. Finish does some extracty hop bitterness. Pretty poor lager, only the aroma was any good at all. Hops were so extracty, but I have to be a little bit charitable as I recognised the fact that theyre noble and citrussy. Almost certain overrate, but I was in a good mood after the last beer (not a tick, a homebrew).

The_Osprey (7440) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2016
330ml green bottle from an offie in Rome. Pretty much free. As Tennents 1885 Lager, 5%, BB Aug 2016. Birra Scozzese. Seems to be brewed solely for the Italian market. Pale orange, clear, lightly sparkling, small scummy off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is sweet pastry - custard slice, cornflakes. Body is light yet fills the mouth with foam, tingly carbonation. Taste is tonic water, light metallics, very pale malt, light sugar. Not much taste. Not unpleasant at all - just very light. Too fizzy on the stomach.

Marduk (6903) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2015
330ml bottle. Pale yellow color. Medium size, white head, stays. Malts and terrible hop exctract in aroma. Sweet, sugary, papery, hop extract, corn, cereal in taste. Bad. Never again!

jaghana (5774) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 20, 2015
Can 50cl, a clear yellow beer with medium head. Nose is on dry malt, wet paper touch and slightly oxydated like. Aroma is very low, watery, dusty hops, wet paper, again a poo fruit notes oxidated like, very boring and thin.
