MiP (14454) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 ZBF08. Weak white bread aroma. Clear golden colour. Nice big stable, creamy white head. Tastes a bit like Caffrey’s or some boring Irish cream ale. Not offensive of course, but not exciting either. Creamy mouthfeel. Soft to medium carbonation. Malty, sweet finish. 6 3 6 3 13

Bottle, 4.8%. Cloudy brown colour, no head. Very bready aroma and flavour. Oxidized. No BB date. Bad. 3 3 3 3 3

ZBF2008: From tap. Pours golden and clear orange with a lacing white head. Light pilsner malty aroma, mild spice note. Vague sweetness with a light fruity note at first. Goes into a more bitter and dry flavour with subdued spice notes. Ends light spiced.

fonefan (38879) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
Bottle. Amber color with a average, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, malt sweet, sugar. Aroma is like the danish "hvidtøl". Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. Flavor is like a thin danish "hvidtøl". (310807)

thebeertourist (5102) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 21, 2007
25 cl bottle, slightly aged. Cloudy amber colour, minimal head. Raisins aroma. Flavours repeat the raisins, but add caramel. Good balanced bitterness, but short finish. Slightly light-bodied? Very nice.

Sten (710) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2007

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2006
Amber colored beer with a small white head. Very sweet malty aroma and taste. This beer reminds me of something I had before but I can’t remember what. Anyway a very drinkable beer.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Cask from Beer Cricus’s LBBF ’05 (02.07.05). The best thing I remember about this beer was the pronunciation - is it tu-neck-ee or tawn-uh-kee? Everytime I said it one way, someone would correct me and claim it was the other way. Didn’t spoil my experience though. Cloudy amber in colour with foamy head. Aroma of toffee and spice. Sweet-ish taste with a spicy edge and lemon notes. Grassy finish? Probably hops. Fairly standard, but no less good.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2006
Draught, light amber coloured, with some light carbonation and an average white head. Sweet malty aroma, clear roasted caramel hints. Full body, little sweet roasted. Finish is sweet-bitter with some light herby touches. Average belgian ale.
