Thanks to WillemsUrenkel for that one! Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass deep golden, nice head. Starts dry-malty, a bit metallically, more and more spicy. Light bitter background. Finish a bit boring malty. Still okay.

Pours amber with quickly vanishing head. Nose is fresh malts and citric fruits. Very refreshing but not much taste in the end while there is definitly some bitterness lasting

Avetixz (24) - Wolfsburg, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2015
UPDATED: APR 1, 2015 Pours a clear amber liquid with a foamy white head. Aroma of grainy, fresh malt with a hint of some hops and citrus. Taste is watery with a flavour of mainly malt and a bitter hops finish. Smells and tastes very fresh. The body is rather full with a flat and oily texture. Not bad, but sadly it lacks some flavour and it seems like the bitter finish is supposed to cover that up.

WillemsUrenkel (838) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2015
0,33 l bottle. Clear and nice golden in the glass, short living head. Little bit grainy on the nose with citrus hints. Taste has a little bit more dry grain, low bitterness. Typical easy to drink old school Schankbier. Nothing more or less.

Moravius (766) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2015
Flasche (33 cl) von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Orangegold, blank; schöne Schaumkrone. - Geruch sehr schwach hopfenwürzig, altes Stroh, schwache Apfelnote. - Antrunk zart karamelsüß mit milden fruchtig-säuerlichen Noten (Apfel). Sehr schlank, ja dünn. Im Abgang schwache, kaum aromatische Bittere. Spätestens hier schmeckt auch der Hopfenextrakt mit einer dumpfen Note heraus. Etwas metallisch klingt es aus. - Nicht unangenehm aber arg dünn. Für ein Schankbier aber noch in Ordnung. - Hemelinger Spezial wird im Lohnbrauverfahren hergestellt, aber wenigstens nennt das Etikett hier Roß und Reiter: „Gebraut und abgefüllt von Hofbrauhaus Wolters ... für Getränke Ahlers.“ Das nenne ich vorbildliche Transparenz.

Douberd (3064) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2014
(Hemelinger Spezial Schankbier) Stubby bottle, 330 ml, at home. Served into an english pint glass, ABV 4.7% Deep golden yellow colour on the body. One finger of thin white head, average retention. Minimal lacing on the glass. Heavy malty aroma, old dried straw. Taste is slightly better and actually it tastes fresh. Again malts but not as heavy, hay, some fresh grass, with some fruity touches on the finish and a light bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, carbonation on the light side but with an initial bite. Overall okay, it doesn’t start well but it becomes better.

rikstar (1230) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2014
0,33l fles bij de trinkgut vandaan. Goudgeel met een snel slinke de schuimkraag. Geur is moutig en zoet. Smaak is lichtbitter en mondgevoel is iets plakkend. Niet veel bijzonders.

Skinnyviking (7595) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2014
Can.. Medium high fluffy lasting head. Light yellow golden body. Sweet malt straw aroma with a mild touch of lemon. Flavor of sweet apples malt and little hops bitterness, low carbonation, short finish.

Bamsen78 (4000) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear pale golden with airy but rather stable white head. Clear aroma of yeast. with notes of hops and touches of metal. Bitter flavour of hops, with notes of yeast and cheap malt. Paperlike and estery aftertaste. Watery. Drinkable, not that bad for the style, but nothing to write home about in general.
