JorisPPattyn (9132) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2005
Orange tinted light brown beer, small white head, fast gone, leaving faint lace. Sweet, liquorice-like nose, faintly nutty. Sweet, again nutty and bready flavours. Sweet, but not sugary, more milke or bread (malt) sugar, fading very slowly. Light bodied, but there is really some malt beefing up the MF. Good session beer, sweet but as it is not cloying it goes down well.

Quack-Duck (9079) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 16, 2014

MartinT (8987) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2006 Impressions from the schwemm:
-Frothy foam and clear reddish-brown hues adopt an icea tea look after but a few minutes.
-Like their Pils, this has an aqueous, überclean feel, which is ridiculously drinkable.
-Toffee and roastiness present simple ideas to the flavor spectrum.
-Charred meats subtly suggest depth in the nose.
-Flaky roasted malt bitterness rises in the back.
-The tiny bubbling and lean body are too slippery for my tastes.
-Everything’s so timid and watery, this is ultimately boring and appears to be brewed for the masses.

From the bottle at the brewery.

3fourths (8980) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2009
clear dark chestnut brown body with a patchy, large-bubbled tan head. sweetened roasted chestnuts in the nose, sticky almond, toasted cereal grains... excellent aroma. up front there’s a bit of cola resemblance, but more nuts, caramel, baked bread, dried stone fruit and sweet tobacco to make up for it. body is good but not great - no strong structure, no sharp crispness, but it’s still sound and drinkable.

KyotoLefty (8843) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 28, 2010
Bottle at the brewery. To speak the truth, a rather uninteresting unfiltered dunkel, when coming from a bottle after the lager or pils here. Medium dark, very little malt taste and almost no sweetness. A good bit of hops. I was already past prime tasting ability by this time, but it was a significant letdown after the lager. Not bad, but lacking most of what I expect in a darker beer.

olio (8785) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2011
50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.
Pours clear amber colour with minimal head. Aroma is strong with malts, some butter and hints of metal and grass. Flavour is malts, some buttery fruits and bread. Medium-bodied and balanced, but nothing interesting.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2004
Bottled - Bedford Beer Festival. Bit of a soapy aroma to this dark brown coloured beer The taste is quite malty and nutty. Dry but quenching. A very good beer.

Bamberg jolly day 2 25/01/2014. Bottle shared on train. Clear amber colour with a small head. Spicy aroma, silage, sweet worty grains. Flavour is nutty grains and some brown unrefined sugars. Spicy grassy hop. Some off flavours. Old cheesey hops. Little caramel. terrible.

laiti (7887) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2011
50 cl bottle, BBE 15.09.2011
Aroma has bready, sweetish malt and some metal. Flavour has lots of sweetish and bready malt with hints of metal. Good dunkel, but the metalliness disturbs a bit.
