ALLOVATE (2980) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2012
The most expensive half pint of beer I had whilst in China. Charged 36RMD at my hotel so it was one and one only!
Medium gold, well charged with a big head of foam that was messy and mostly lasting (first truly clean glass I had had since being in China I suppose!). Malty sweet, relatively clean nose with a spicy hop note coming through. Similar on the palate. Grainy, sweet toasted malt and mild corn notes upfront melding with a sour malt and hop backend and grassy, peppery and subtly bitter finish. Gassy, heavy in the stomach with medium-light body. There is an alkaline feel to it that develops as it warms, so down it went quickly. Light citrus comes out of the sourness. Not a bad quaffer. At least it has some back bone. (29,5cL, BB 30/11/12, The Qube Hotel, Pudong, Shanghai, China)

At Papsoe’s pre CPH Beer Fest tasting, cheers Henrik! Pale gold beer. Crisp with a little bit of malt. The barest whisper of hop. Drinkable but not clever!

Ungstrup (36462) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt as well as lighter notes of caramel and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, vitamin C, and citrus fruits. The body is light. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Bottle. Pale straw, pours with a head that vanishes to nothing. Bland, with barely any aroma. Thin beer with mineral water finish. Life cereal sweetness in the flavors and a paper pulp quality that is totally inoffensive.

Oakes (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2010
From Nanning Tsingtao. Pale straw. Thin head did not last. The aroma shows very vague hints of bready malts and spicy hops. Light body, but it has some sour-hop character, which is not unusual for Tsingtao brews.
