Number One Whisky Malt
Can 33cl brought from new Caledonia by Thierry many thanks, a clear copper beer with good head. Nose is on toasted caramel and smoked notes. Aroma is on caramel and peated malt, quite sweet, very near to the Adelscott beer ! Finish is on malt, sugar and peated malt, correct, interesting anyway.

From old tasting notes. Pale yellow gold color with a large foamy white head capping lots of small bubbles. Big malty aroma has lots of hop notes. Malty flavor upfront transitions to hop bitterness in finish. Tart and hoppy leading to a bitter aftertaste.

330ml bottle into shaker. Courtesy of bitterlady. Probably should just be called ’Number One Extra’ on Ratebeer but I digress. Green bottle and I’m greeted by rubber tyre and sewer notes, calms down in the glass to just tin and a hint of vegetables. Golden beer with thin white head. Light fine carbonation. Full bodied, light fruit taste. Bit of zing. Finish has moments of malt and decaying fruit. Quite odd but drinkable.

330ml bottle into shaker, courtesy of Bitterlady. Green bottle, euro-skunk nose! Rubber tyre and cardboard, soon dissipates to faint grainy malt. Clear pale yellow beer with thin film on top, light carbonation. Surprisingly fizzy on the tongue with some grain, hops, and cardboard malt. Finish turns sour and acidic late on. Average euro style lager but a lot sweeter.

Bottle sample received in a trade with Nisse666 - Skål Thomas! Country #149. Pours pale gold with a small bubbly head. Aroma of honey, cereal and caramel. Fairly heavy sweetness, light bitterness. Light body, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Finish is sweet leaving a syrupy mouthfeel. Quite drinkable, especially considering it’s journey to uk.

Many thanks to travlr for this bottle! The beer starts moderate grainy with hints of sweetness. Highly drinkable with a slightly bitter grainy aftertaste. Quite thin but not too watery. Easy to drink with sweetish grainy hints in the aftertaste. Nice though.

For a regular ordinary global pils, this isnt too bad. Some corn and residual sweetness that can be a little much for a beach party, but still very nice. Alcohol is a bit high for this style of beer and takes away from it being a refresher.

Havannah jest mocno słodowa i ciasteczkowa. Choć sam zapach raczej nikły. Goryczy tu brak, ale niskie wysycenie sprzyja konsumpcji. Ot wypiłem i się nie skrzywiłem, co w przypadku naszych korpolagerów mi się nie zdarza.

33cl can courtesy of jaghana, merci! bb "Fin DEC 2014". Very much a near-drinkable geography lesson, this canned collectivity of cardboard, corn sugar and starch aligns the French Melanesians, aka "Kanaky" (Wiki), with the global Kronenbourg-Heineken taste, making palates dry across the world since colonialism collapsed on itself to create insipid outre-mer dependencies. An imaginative stretch, surely, but about what you’d imagine the prime beerlike beverage of such an insipid Pacific dependency, an Oceanic archipel nearly the size of Belgium, would taste like, should your palate doze off after watching a docu about New-Zealand and suddenly wake up a few miles off dream route, dehydrated and fish-mouthed. Gardons notre ile propre!
