Postupně sem budu doplňopvat piva, co jsem vypil a zapsal si, chvilku to asi bude trvat a proto k těm dříve vypitým pivům nebudou žádné "dojmy" . Horší pivo, ale skvělá lahev !

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle from Laurissa. Pale pour with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy. Taste is off fruit, a little butter, old grain, and and weird finish.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer topped by a small, white head. Rather fruity nose, with green apples, ripe pears, some stinging scent reminiscent of alcohol, and a grassy and malty touch. Thin on the palate, soft, but low carbonation. Green apples, grass and maltyness in the flavor, lacking big time on bitterness. That goes for the finish too. Superbly boring. 121019

kwik-lime (1939) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2012
A triumph of style over substance if ever there was one. Interesting bottle for an uninteresting beer - very thin palate and little character.

ThreeCats (900) - ISRAEL - SEP 7, 2012
Foamy head over clear golden-straw body (and an extra point for the unique bottle!). Aroma of straw, some malt, some grass. Taste a bit sweet, grainy, and some corn. Palate short, overall unremarkable.

Niko100 (2914) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Light straw color; Light to medium body; Aroma of malt, grain, and light hops; Flavor of malt, some hops, and grain; Fairly bland and watery; Decent at best.

2.3
Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2012
It’s golden med hvidt skum. The aroma has notes of malt, grain and the flavor is sweet with notes of malt and grain, a touch of flower and it’s thin bodied. Not faulty as such, just plain boring.

jfb (6270) - GERMANY - AUG 23, 2012
(bottle) pours a clear pale yellow colour with a frothy white head. aroma of cooked vegetables, earth and herbal hops, light vanilla, lactic acid, grainy pale malts and banana. flavour is mostly the same, cooked vegetables, vanilla and a hint of cardboard, with light notes of caramel and a herbal-hoppy finish. light to medium-bodied with average carbonation.
