That beer was especially brewed for DDC 6th anniversary, and I choose it for my 250th rating. It pours a very nice gold body topped with an average white bubbly head that leaves a good lacing. Strong and well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with fruity, spicy and herbal hints. Taste is also great. It bears some sweet and honeyish notes. Very nice bittersweet finish. This is definitely one of the best European Strong Lagers you can have.

Bottle thanks to Crusianbeer. Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma of faint vegitable, nice big earthy hop profile, very malty and spicy. Flavor much the same and kinda sweet. Medium body with medium high carbonation. Solid brew!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours golden maple syrup mostly unclear with a white head. The aroma is sweet syrupy, hoppy, and boozy. The flavor is similar with booze laying on the palate of a medium syrupy body that smooths out the pilsner well. There are sweet hoppy notes in there in a subtle way.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
07.09.05, 07.11.05 Tap at brewpub. Nearly red-orange pour with fleeting white head. Yeasty aroma, some alcohol presence but not burning. Body is quite thin but oily. Fruity. Short finish. Missing some bitter or grassy hops, etc. It’s a big time brew with a small time flavor, whatever that means?

Bu au Mondial de la Bière 05. Forte, mais assé délicieuse, sucré et un petit peu réfréchissante.
