Hendo (110) - Sint Anthonis, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2006
Bottled version. Not a bad beer at all, a little sweet perhaps. A bit of hops going on there. Enjoyable but nothing overly special.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2006
Amber/golden coloured brew. Aroma is nice, a bit honey, bit malty. Hoppy flavours, a bit bitter. Tastes not really that great, maybe a bit too sweet.

pivnizub (8729) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2005
Bottle (bought by MoritzF): Deep golden coloured, thin foamy layer; sweetish, fruity (honey, dough, vanilla) nose, some traces of alcohol; sweetish-bitter flavour, medium bodied; quite full sweetish/malty finish with a distinctive bitterness; quite well hidden alcohol, quite well rounded. Very pleasant !

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2005
(bottle) Clear copper colour with a frothy white medium head. Sweet malty aroma with a little hop note. Sweet flavour, medium to full body. Full malts accented taste, initially quite sweet, slightly dry and bitter finish. Stronger than the usual Dortmunder. Okay.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2005
Brassy gold hue with a thin, frothy, white head. Aroma of hay, pilsner malt, honey, fresh cut grass, dust. Moderately sweet flavor becomes a lightly sweet lightly bitter finish. Medium body, sticky texture, livley carbonation.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Thanks to B for this one. Smells a lot like grass and corn...?... anyway, smells so sweet. an opaque, but not cloudy golden color. warm alcohol burn to this one. very grainy feel to it, sugary sweet flavors, almost tastes the way warm vanilla sugar bodyu spray smells lol. but with the grass and some malts added in.

21iceman40 (1731) - vienna, West Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2005
Very clear orangish color with a small soapy head. The aroma brings me back to my mgd days as it has a musty basement and wet hay vibe to it. I get alot of wet grass that is stewing in the body and some roastyness.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2005

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2010 After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and evenly of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear golden color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a fruity touch. This beer smells malty.
