1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Very weird attempt at making a fictional beer come to life. A German company apparently conceived the idea to make Duff Beer from "The Simpsons" a tangible reality and this is the result: loose, snow white head, colour golden blonde, clear. Weak aroma of sweet pale malts, popcorn, mineral water, some grassy hops, some iron. Simple taste of pale malts with a rather disturbing corn-like sweetness, minerals, thin mouthfeel, finish very lightly hoppy but primarily watery. If the aim was to create an ironically stereotypical bland mass-marketed lager: mission accomplished. However: ask Moe if he has any craft beer, Homer, you’ll never know what hit you! But keep Barney away from it...

Duff Beer for me. Bottle. Pours clear yellow. European pilsener aroma. Bland taste; nothing of importance to point out. Weak body, a little flat. Frankly I don?t know what Homer sees in this. I, for one, CAN get enough of that wonderful Duff.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Transfer from BA review on 4-10-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a billowy white head. The head had very good retention but faded over time to give a medium level of lacing. For the strength of the brew it was quite good.
Smell – The smell was heavy of corn with a lighter caramel aroma mixed in. There is an ever so light earthy aroma mixed in as well, but this is very light.
Taste – The taste matches the nose quite well. Corn and a bit of caramel malt meet the tongue. These flavors last throughout the taste, but are meet at the end by some light earthy flavors.
Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is light to medium in thickness with an average to slightly average level of carbonation.
Overall – Very standard adjunct lager. While it is quite average, the novelty factor makes it a must try for any past of present Simpsons fan.

330ml Can from a Prague Mini-Market (59CZK):
Not all that enjoyable & purely a gimmick, not up to the standard of the much cheaper, & better Czech lagers that were for sale in the same shops as this one. The beer was thin & bland with nothing going for it really.

This beer is only interesting because of the branding. The aroma and taste are not worth mentioning.

Bottle, purchased because I was a fan of the Simpsons and this beer is not available in North America. It wasn’t very good. So I am glad it is not available there.
