In a green bottle. SKUNKED, of course. aroma is bitter, herbal, skunky, musty, and some toasted bread. pours golden with lots of suspended sediment and no head. flavor is sharply bitter skunked hops on top of an interesting herbal candy throat lozenge sweetness. also some vanilla and light toast come into play. finishes surprisingly dry given the strong candy sweetness. the finish is really the only thing keeping this beer drinkable as the flavor is so much like candy or cough drops. overall, a beer with interesting elements that clash but is ultimately saved by a dry finish which makes this not unpleasant. this beer was also probably spoiled by light and probably exhibited more cough drop characteristics due to mistreatment in transport.

Bottle was a gift from Humulus et Fermentum, Heisdorf. Thank you! Pours clear copper brown with huge head. Nose is grainy and floral, taste is caramel sweetness nicely balanced by hoppy bitterness. Sweet finish, bitter aftertaste. Full mouthfeel, low carbonation. Nice, but nothing special, a bit bland.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2015 Bottle in Løkken, Denmark, kindly brought from Germany by our parents. Pours amber with little off-white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, hay and grass, some buttery flavours (diacetyl). Medium bodied. Tastes sweet, well balanced by hop bitterness.

rjplumer (762) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Light sweet grain aroma. Body is a clear mild copper with a modest one finger thick head. Has a mild bitter bite. Sweet caramel on the back end of the palate. Feels light but is bold and feels warm going down.
