JorisPPattyn (8035) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2007
Draught Fully yellow-gold with foamy white head. Very "beery" nose with emphasis on malt, finish being grassy. Malty taste with a little toasted edge, corn flakes, ending quite dry, just short of bitterish. Rather slick, even nearly oily MF. Pleasing, but very down-to-earth beer. A Maß is definitely the most for me.

MadIndian (2435) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2007
Sampled with Stegosaurus. Yellow pour with white head. Skunky aroma and thin body. Tiny bite on the end. It was not that good.

doubelknv3 (995) - Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Golden with creamy head with notes of mild citrus. Good balance between malt and hops, with some citrus notes. Smooth and very refreshing.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2007
12 oz bottle. Clear golden beer with a white head. Aroma of bready malts. Flavor is bready malt and hops drying out to a lightly bitter finish. No skunk in the one I had. Primary component is the grassy hops. German character from start to finish. Fairly decent dortmunder. Refreshing and enjoyable.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2007
I can’t really say I know why we ordered this beer. Two words can be used to describe this foul smelling, tasting, and looking garbage ... UGLY PISSWATER.

ajolly2 (129) - USA - FEB 11, 2007
Very thick white head; loads of carbonation; translucent yellow-golden appearance; aroma of vomit (or something of the sort) and bread; thick lacing; very, very subtle sweetness; overall it’s just middle of the road: nothing exciting but not dissapointing whatsoever; the commercial description of it is right on (save for the "richly aromatic").

anders37 (17614) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2007
Draught @ Bishop’s Arms, Malmö. Pours a golden colour with a longlasting white head. Malty bready aroma with some grassy hints. Sweet malty bready and grassy flavor. Sweet malty finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2007
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm) Clear yellow colour with huge, thick off-white head. Mainly malty nose with fruity hints of lemon and pineapple, grassy notes of hops as well. Fresh, malty taste with grassy hops in a rather dry, medium bitter finish with hints of citrus somewhere at the end. Rather uncomplicated, but very drinkable German lager.

faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 5, 2007
Draught at the brewery. Golden with a nice big frothy white head that is mostly lasting. Fresh hoppy aroma with good malts. Flavour is fresh, bit dryish, good hoppiness and maltiness, slightly yeasty. Long finish, a bit bitter. Great brew.

graham515 (536) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2007
Very fresh aroma. Pours a very pale gold with a thick white head. Smooth and silky on the palate and very refreshing. Weaker on the hops than its pilsener rival, but none the less a great brew
