UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Bottle from Wasana’s, Idar-Oberstein, Germany!
Pours pale yellow with small soapy head. Smells malty-sweet with lots of grain. Starts sweet malty, with some slight hops and some caramel flavor. Middle part has lots of grain and some bready notes, paired with some aroma hops. Goes into a musty-malty finish with some caramel flavor.

visionthing (3683) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 5, 2013
50cl bottle from Bon Voyage, Berlin. Pours pale golden with a white head. Lightly malty aroma with hops and hints of fruits. Moderate sweet with a somewhat dry and more bitterness than expected in the finish. Medium body. Quite boring, but fairly decent and drinkable.

fantti (796) - FINLAND - JAN 14, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin vaaleankullankeltaisena vaahdon ollessa tiivis ja valkoinen. Haju on hunajainen, ruohoinen, multainen, marjainen sekä leipäisen maltainen. Maku on ruohoisen humaloitu, merjainen, havuinen, kukkapenkkinen ja makean leipäisen maltainen. Suutuntuma on hieman hiilihappoinen ja tasapainoisen humaloitu, parasta tässä oluessa. Kokonaisuutena tämä on tasapainoinen, mutta omaan makuun tylsähkö tuotos. Kuitenkin raikas ja kesäinen, kuten kesävaloikoiman tuotteen kuuluukin.

MichaelAwesome (5846) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. Could have been a Tuborg or another lager. Bit sweety and bit hoppy with some fruits in the aroma. Simple and easy to go. Nothing special at all.

McTapps (5851) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle from local Dursty and shared with MichaelBruch. Deep golden colour, steady but altogether low head. Taste of mild citrus fruits, mild hops, light malt and green hay. Easy to drink, but little bit too thin.

#632 Mal ne neue Kategorie, ein sogenanntes Hüttenbier, soso. "Der urige Genuß", aha. Da wird die idyllische Bergwelt und die jahrhundertealte Brautradition gepriesen und dann das: Das Hüttenbier ist ein alter Hut und nennt sich für gewöhnlich Export. Dafür ist es recht dünn ausgefallen. Primär malzig mit etwas Hopfen im Abgang. Nicht schlecht, aber auch nichts weltbewegendes ausm Allgäu. Die Bügelflasche an sich ist ja schön, jedoch das schrill-bunte Etikett mit Heidis Großvater vor der Blockhütte ist ziemlich daneben. Fazit: Kein neuer Stern am Export-Himmel! Test vom 18.9.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,9,10,9,6,9 - 9,20
