pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2005
11.2 oz bottle. Dig the raised letters on the brown glass bottle, but not enough to award a bonus point. Clear pale yellow beer, thin head. Clean and mild to taste light body; lots of bittering hops, little to no residual malt sweetness, surprisingly soft texture. Loved this beer back in the Berlin days, good to find it for sale in the US.

promontor (140) - HUNGARY - MAR 13, 2017
0.5l can from Lidl. Starts with nice thick head. Aroma is mostly sour, with a bit of bread. And some strange component (like a stable) I cannot decide whether it is some fault (DMS?) or is it part of the concept. Foam tastes bitter, bit like medicine. Otherwise it is not vry persistent, although laces properly remain. Body is pale orange, clean, OK for the type. Taste is bittersweet, kind of harmonic but lacks complexity, bit boring. Maybe some freshness comes forward in the end. Taste is a bit on the sweet side, aftertaste is a bit on the bitter side, unfortunately it is dry medicine-like bitterness. Carbonation is moderate, OK. In overall, this is mostly correct but far from exciting and far from my favourites.

puboflyons (3293) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 10, 2017
From the 16 oz. can with an expiration date of 07/12/17. Bright yellow, heady pour. The foamy white head lingers for quite some time. The aroma has a slight vegetable mash thing but otherwise it is toasted Euro-barley malts, sweetness, and grassy hops. The taste is mostly sweet and toasty with a clean finish. But there is an off-putting papery or cardboard like thing going on that brings it down some.

NikkTwist (3000) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2017 Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear pale straw pour with slim white foam. Clean pilsner taste but not much more to it. Finish makes me wince a bit. Feels like a generic sweet beer syrup and water. Surprised it is German and not American. Beats a Bud, I suppose.

Grumpelmies (177) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle. Pale yellow. Decent head. Aroma and taste are malty sweet, bready and grassy. Just a small hint of hops. Medium carbonation. Its ok for partying but it lacks in character. I almost fell asleep writing this.
