Pours clear golden with a white foamy head. Malty aroma. Taste is malty and grainy with a hint of herbal but slightly metallic bitterness. Very simple and basic bulk lager. (500ml can, labeled as The Legendary Duff Beer, 4,9 % abv)

33cl bottle, which I bought in Liège (Lüttich) in 2012 or so. I thought this was the Belgian Duff Beer variant, but found out that I had the German brew. Plain, almost tasteless lager beer. One to buy for the bottle label. I also drank it from a 33cl can.

Since RB randomly deletes ratings I do random rants on those beers. I had this beer at least twice: 1) 330ml bottle from Sikupilli Prisma- which was boring as morning dump. Now the second one was @Taco Express in one of those early mornings when you are drunk enough that you just don’t care. Fell asleep while drinking this. I don’t blame alcohol I drank ’til that hour, I blame that beer for being so boring and bland that I couldn’t keep my eyes open. Never again!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can, 0.33l. Clear pale golden color with medium frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is grainy, bready and grassy. Tastes light sweet and sour grainy and grassy with crisp and dry mouthfeel and light bitter finish. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Poor, boring and lifeless, Homer’s polar opposite :)

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 From a 355ml can on 30/11/2014 (made in the USA and labelled ’Australian Edition’ but this is the only Duff entry that looks close to the mark). Pours a clear golden with a biggish white head that disappears quickly. Has a grainy, corny macro lager smell. Flavour is ordinary as suspected, a bit stale and metallic, with corn and some slight grassy character and the mildest hops. Thin body and average carbonation. Much as I admire Homer Simpson, his taste in beer is highly questionable. Typical macro lager.

Bottle at work. Pours golden color, small white head. Aroma of honey and malt. Taste is medium sweet, hoppy, bit floral, some biscuits, malty.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.33l bottle poured in a regular glass, in the train back home.
Well, I wasn’t expecting too much about this beer but curious enough to buy one bottle (By the way, at Drinks of the World, at Basel train station, one of the good beer places of Switzerland!). I do not like spending so much time on horrible beers but, it was an intense working day so... Let’s kill the time!
A: Clear gold color as a regular lager. Medium bubbled white head. Low retention. Few lacings
S: Sweet malts and cheap corn
T: Tastes like cheap corn. Metallic. It’s reasonably bitter, at least. Some malt taste is also present but, the corn.... kills all the expectations
M: Light body. Fake carbonation. Some bitterness and that’s all you can get from this
D: Low. More to a American adjunct lager than to a German Pilsener...
Pure opportunism. To be avoided, even by Homer fans! :p

Not as bad as supposed to be. Malt and hops are noticeable in aroma and taste. Mild pleasant aftertaste.
