Emmaneul (16) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2006
Bottle 0,3l. Golden/Amber. Grassy hops, malts, alcohol, and some diacetyl?. A bit of honey and apple can be distinguished when warmer. Sweet, a bit caramel, soft carbonation, and hop. A finish with hop and malt bitterness (bread/caramel) and sweetness. Nice and hoppy with some good dry caramel/bread-like malts. Pleasant, but ’super’? No.

Bottled. Dark golden colour, small white head. Malts, buttery and caramellish hints. Quite much grassy and honeyish hints also. Flavour is malts, slight honey and bready. Pleasant and easy-to-drink.

omhper (19321) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2006
[Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm] Clear golden, dense head. Buttery papery malt aroma. Malt sweet with generous amounts of bready malt and butter. On top of that there’s some grassy hops. An aromatic, very well balanced beer completely relying on it’s excellent malt character.

bluevegie (3052) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2006
Clear light orangey golden body with a fairly lasting white head. Sweet aroma, peaches and malt. Mainly the malt characters seem to show first in the taste, body is fairly well rounded, hint of hops on the finish, couldn’t tell the alcohol was as high as it was. Enjoyable!

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 (8790) - 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 (8464) - 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.
