Erdinger Champ has a thin, off-white, fizzy head, a hazy, yellow-orange appearance, which hazes up even more when the bottom of the bottle is swished and poured in, lots of bubble streams and clinging bubbles, and pretty much no lacing left behind. The aroma is sweet and bready. The flavor is of sweetness, yeasty bread, a hint of banana, a hint of coriander, and some tap water. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Erdinger Champ finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and delicious. RJT

Theydon_Bois (7005) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle at Erdinger Sportscafe, Munchen Flughafen T2, 26/01/14. Had to ask for a glass with this one, can see why now from the write up above! Lightly hazed orange golden with a good sized white head. Nose is light soap, floral strains, citrus, straw. Taste comprises light nana, yeast, bread dough, lemon, hint of spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, clean closure. So so, not much depth, not really true to the style.

CanCrusher (512) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle 0,33L. Hazy yellow colour with small, creamy, white head that dissipate fast. Weak aroma of banana and chewing gum. Taste starts light sweet and become light acidic in the aftertaste. Medium to full body with oily texture and lively carbonation. Comparing it to classic Erdinger, they acquired on drinkability and refreshnes, but lost on richness of taste.

jmagnus87 (2220) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours an almost-clear dark gold with minimal head. Aroma of wheat with some clove and a little doughy yeast. Taste is light sweet and reflects the aroma. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and an abrupt finish. Overall, not bad. Enjoyable but nothing to seek out.

10/XII/13 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: IX/2014 (2013-1137) Thanks to Dominiek for the bottle!

Clear pale yellow beer, huge solid creamy white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: grains, cow fodder, stable, bit grassy, hint of banana, bit metallic. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: some citrus, malts, sweet grains, pretty bitter, hoppy. Aftertaste: watery impression, bitter hops, some banana, bit metallic, very light impression, watery, but saved by the nice hop bitterness.
