Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2012
#482 Tief güldene Farbe mit feiner Blume. Hopfiger Geruch unterlegt mit kräuterigem Unterton. Im Antrunk erst süßmalzig, fast schon zuviel, wird dann aber schnell würzig im Mittelteil, um dann im langen Abgang immer herber zu werden. Wahrlich eine geschmackliche Achterbahn! Das Battin Gambrinus wirkt dadurch zwar unausgewogen, ist aber durchaus eine Bereicherung der Mainstream-Bierlandschaft, denn es lässt sich nicht einfach in eine Kategorie einordnen. Ein klassisches Export schmeckt doch anders. Die Bügelflasche hat leider ein viel zu primitives Etikett, der Inhalt ist aber probierenswert! Test vom 2.3.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,10,10,8,10 - 10,10

Clear darker yellow with white foam head. Aroma is malty like any lager. Taste is nice bitter, little sweet. Tinckling on tongue. Aftertaste is malty, nothing special. (Wiesbaden 201211)

berkshirejohn (4402) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2012
On tap at a hotel by the station in Luxembourg. Amber with a thick white head; light caramel aroma; grainy body with a touch of caramel. Pleasant but insubstantial.

stevoj (2023) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 3, 2012
50cl can from roadside gas station in Lux. Malty aroma, richer than expected from a pale lager. Nice color and lacy stickiness. Taste is sweet and sharp with nice bitterness on the tongue, A pleasant surprise from Luxembourg.

brugmanneke (278) - GERMANY - AUG 13, 2012
(on tap) Dark golden, creamy white head. Aroma of sweet-bread-like malts and grassy hops. Very mild at first, getting stronger as the hop aroma accumulates on the palate. But there is also some creamed corn aroma, which I find suspicious. Taste is lightly sweet with only very light bitterness. Sweetness matches the malts, but that is not what I am looking for in a pale lager. Light to medium body, and not too fizzy. Hoppy aroma tends to accumulate on the palate. Drinkable due to the aromatic hops, but I am not looking forward to trying the bottled version.

Chicharito1450 (1) - - JUL 15, 2012 does not count
Battin Gambrinus is far the best luxemburgish beer, but only Gambrinus because Battin Frutté, Extra or Edelpils are not that good.

sebletitje (6594) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2012
50cl can. Dorée/orangée, blanc épais. Arôme est agréable fleuri et houblonné, malt pâle sans plus. En bouche, houblonné et fleuri, malté doux, sec et pétillant avec ce côté typique malt et un fini très belge. Dans l’ensemble reste réussie.
