pivnizub (8948) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2009
Grande bouteille (de Quack-Duck!): Golden, a bit unclear, lacy white foamy layer; sweet grainy-bisquity nose, traces of marzipan included; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; light to moderate sweet-bitter finish with marzipan and a little tartness in the finish. Quite O.K., but not really convincing.......

Corked bottle. Light malt and musty hay hops. Clear golden color with giant off white head. Very light malt and moderately bitter grass hops flavor. Body on the light side. Like what’s here, just wish there was more of it.

MoritzF (8563) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2010
(bottle, 75cl) Hazy, pale golden colour with a fluffy white foam. Moderately sweet and grainy malty aroma with a tinge of biscuits and marzipan, accompanied by traces of flowery hops. Moderately sweet and faint bitter flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Slightly grainy and subtle fruity taste with light floral notes; medium-dry mildly grainy and shy fruity finish. A bit flat but drinkable brew. 02.XII.09

Cunningham (4678) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2012
Golden colour with a white head. Malty and light fruity aroma. Thinner texture than expected but also a bit more hoppy than expected. Light malty and hoppy flavour.

Ooh, nice smoky steam pouring out of the just-corked big bottle. Pours very nicely with a strong fluffy head, but unfortunately very little is identifiable in the aroma. Taste is a very average Bière de Garde style of malts and some syrupiness, which means there’s not much to make this one stand out from the pack of widely distributed beers of this type. Found at my local supermarket, and you can find better Bières de Garde there aside from this one for pretty much the same price.
