TaxiDriver (1440) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2008
Bottle. Malty smell, bitter chocolate - a little bit like a porter... Medium sized white foamy head, good lasting, yellow-orange flat body. Light sweet start, light bitter finish, average duration. Oily texture, light to medium body, soft carbonation. Relatively long lasting. Nice beer with a good alcohol level!

Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark yellow colour. Moderate malty light hoppy aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Average light bitter finish. Oily very vinius palate. Almost more like barley wine than Dortmunder. Nice brew.

mike_77 (2714) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2007
Golden colour with tight white head. A very strong, sweet aroma mainly of strawberry jam but with some peach and tangerine too. Flavour is also sweet although not as overpowering as the aroma. Luckily it’s a fresh sweetness making it a fairly drinkable beer.

Bottle, 7.5%. Citric, vinous aroma, not too pleasant. Dark golden colour, very small white head. Alcoholic flavour and peppery finish. Also quite sweet. Typical European Strong Lager.
