kiwianer (3315) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 22, 2012
The head is robust and the foam fine, the body is light brown. It smells light malty, sweet and a bit roasty. The taste is first because it was cooled to -2°C very mild and a bit watery, but then if it becomes normal temperature it is a bit alcoholic, creamy, a little bit roasty. Nothing special but a other beer for people which want to get drunk easily. The taste is bit better then medium. 11/11/10/11/12/10

McTapps (2995) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Dark amber in colour with low head. Taste of caramel, roasted spices, pepper and hops. Really easy to drink but it comes -despite of 5.9 alcohol percent- down very weak. Quite boring as well.

Mid amber in colour. Malty, nutty, bready aroma. Mid roasted malt flavour allied to fruits and a modicum of toffee/caramel.

stevoj (1704) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Nice take on this style (I was expecting another pale lager). Beautiful pour with thick airy head and nice dark amber color. Light malty aroma with slightly stronger, but mellow taste. Light lingering palate. A pleasant surprise.
