BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2008
[bottle] Very clear yellow color. Dense, sticky white foam. Aroma is malty, sweet bread and and hint of sulfur. Very malty, dense, hop flavors. Slight caramel sweetness balances things well towards the finish. Lingering bitterness. Outstanding.

mcberko (13023) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2016
On tap at PIB 2016, pours a clear pale yellow with a medium off-white head. Aroma brings out light herbal notes and toasted malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted malt, herbaceous notes and a little grass. Solid enough - very herbaceous all around. Solid.

unclemike (2860) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Fast dissipating head. Some cider and glue in the aroma. Taste: smooth in the beginning, turning into an apply, slightly vodka-ish aftertaste. This tastes like it has some body, with occasional hops in the mouth, and a fair amount of sweetness. You can’t detect the strength in this; certainly it is quite nice. Good.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

caribou43 (466) - SWITZERLAND - APR 25, 2016
I drank this beer in Lausanne with some friends. The body is yellow dark and not troubled. The carbonation is low, white foam. The taste is in the mouth sweet, wheat, discreet banana touch, few or no hop. It is a drinkable beer.

On Tap at Prost, Boise Classic German slightly hazy lager. Light bodied and a crisp finish. Light malty sweetness.

minutemat (3869) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours clear gold, thin receding white head. Aroma is hay, sweet wort and floral elements. Taste is smooth, sweet malts that cater to my sweet tooth well. The grainy element makes itself known and the malty sweetness does get a bit much, but I still liked it.

500ml bottle. Had to tick this, the black - or yellow - sheep of the Andechser family. The beer pours clear yellow golden with a large white head. The aroma is bread dough and grain, quite mild indeed. The flavor is rather sweet and sugary, bready, and malty. Unnaturally sweet tasting. Not much hop to speak of. Clean and crisp feel with medium body. Of this one a fan I am not. Bergbock? More like Boregbock.
