JorisPPattyn (7912) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2011
Medium to good, dissipating, light-yellowish head over metallic golden beer. Caramelly nose, maltsugars, some green herbs, faintly grassy. Quite sweet, with just a point of neutral to light-bitterish in the finish. Again maltsugars predominant. Feels quite carbonated; slick, grist/patly dissolved sugars’ texture. Mineral water quality. Quite acceptable - as a Heller Bock (7.5% ABV!). The commercial caption ("highly hopped") fits it like a flag a dredging boat. Talk about renewing an old acquaintance - probably one of the first Dutch beers I ever tasted!

Quack-Duck (7912) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2010
bottle, kindly donated by pivnizub. Clear golden yellow, mid-sized white head. Malty nose with a herbal touch. Full-bodied, good malty background with hints of herbal hops. Rather spicy with nice accents of herbs. Has more characteristics of a Heller Bock than a Dortmunder/Helles, to my opinion.

30cl Bottle at Café De Paas. Clear light golden amber colour, white head. Aroma of soft caramel, light toasted malts, light metallic. Flavour is light sweet, malty, caramel, very light metallic bitterness in the finish, slightly alcoholic feel to it. Light to medium bodied. Very clean beer, nice and easy drinking.

Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2009
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of caramel, metal, malt, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, metal, and caramel, leading to a dry metallic finish. Thanks KimJohansen for sharing.
