Bottle, sourced by Lakshmi at the World Trade beer event in Geneva (which implies Dutch are proud of this one!) Dark brown colour, quite high carbonation, not much head. Sweet, caramel, hint of chocolate. It is lacking in balance, not enough bitterness, although somehow I found it reasonably refreshing.

330ml bottle. Aroma is malty. Appearance is very dark brown with a nice white brown head. Taste in s very very sweet. Leaves a sweet mouth feel. Overall a bad experience. Won’t drink this again.

Clear Cola like appearance with a tan head. Well, for a few moments that is, because beer is completely dead after a few moments. It’s thin, watery, sweet. Terrible "beer".

Appearance: no foam, dark beer.
Nose: sugar, some malt.
Taste: it reminds me of lemonade with a little bitter aftertaste, but not the good kind of lemonade. The beer is out of balance and did not please me in any way.

Uggh. This is terrible. I’m not sure who buys this. Most of the best qualities of beer as a beverage are absent here. Almost no alcohol, terrible balance, cloying, and no head. Its brown?

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Mahogany brown, almost black body with a thin, quick disappearing, fizzy head. Smells of dark malt, caramel and sugar. Let’s be fair – it smells like flat Coke. Thin light watery body with soft carbonation. Tastes of sweet caramel syrup and dark malt with a slightly metallic aftertaste. Let’s be fair- it tastes like flat Coke. Ultimately, though it smells, looks like Coke it feels far more fake.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
The name was a bit misleading for my expectations. Not a brown beer, but more of a crappy Malzbier-type of low alcohol thing. Watery, too sweet, syrupy, just not nice. As the Dutch recommend, to be given to piglets as an elecrolyte supplement, especially on weak batches (of piglets).
