Grima (2124) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Frisch gezapft. Das Bier ist für meinen Geschmack recht herb und nicht wirklich sonderlich süffig. Der Nachgeschmack ist sehr unangenehm. Bei Gelegenheit folgt ein Zweittest mit wirklich frisch Gezapftem...

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2011
Light yellow colored, lively carbonation. Medium sized white head. Soapy and grassy hopped aroma, some sweet malty note here as well. Medium bodied. Flavor is more biting with grassy, even salty hops, some grains and buttery note here as well. Aftertaste is still sweet with butter.

crossovert (7977) - Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2011 Vom Fass. It is a golden hue with a pleasant subtle smell and a clean and refreshing taste.

shrubber85 (7970) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Bottle. Sweet creamy barley malt and light grass hops aroma. Clear golden yellow color with moderate head. Slight sweet light malt and bitter grassy hops flavor. Okay but could use more malt flavor.

Quack-Duck (8228) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2009

Flavor is light to moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. [20090813]

kappldav123 (5173) - GERMANY - SEP 9, 2009
The bottle looks good, but a bit cheap. The beer in the glass is very zippy. Starts mild, modest hoppy, not too dry. A little bit sourish in the background. Finish a bit metallically. Okay, but nothing really special!
