Bottle shared with McTapps. Don’t know if I had a bad day or what but this one was crazy. An awful aroma of chicken or whatever combined with a strange yeasty-meaty taste. Bad.

GBZ59 (1094) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - APR 29, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Botella de 500ml. Vaso Lager. Color dorado y apariencia cristalina. Espuma blanca, tupida y corona fugaz. Intensos aromas de sulfuros y grano con leves toques ácidos, leve galleta y sutil fruto seco por detrás. Entrada de grano y leve malteado. Cuerpo ligero-medio y carbonatación moderada. La textura es densa como de galleta y sutil toque picante. El amargo es áspero y queda redondeado por piel de fruto seco que deja una sensación reseca y permanece en el prolongado y amargo final. Las maltas retornan en el retrogusto. 500ml bottle. Lager glass. Golden color, clear appearance. White & close froth, brief crown. Intense sulfur & grain aromas, slight acidic hints & some biscuit & subtle dry nut on the back. Malty & grainy upfront. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Texture is dense, biscuit mouthfeel & subtle spicy touch. Harsh bitterness, rounded by dry nut peel in the middle leaves a dried sensation & lingers into a long bitter finish. Malts return on the aftertaste.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, getreidig, leicht herb. Geschmack malzig würzig, getreidig, minimale Bitterkeit.

Tayeth (205) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2014
Das Aroma ist ziemlich muffig, erinnert ein wenig an Popcorn (Diacetyl?), aber auch ein wenig an Gemüse (DMS?). Der Geschmack ist dann ziemlich wässrig, adstringierend im Abgang. Unangenehmer Nachgeschmack.

Geruch nach Babykotze und Malz, Körper schön leicht malzig. Am Ende kommt doch noch Bittere ohne viel Aroma.

Huge, bubbling white head. Clear golden colour. Disgusting vomit aroma and by far the worst beer aroma I’ve experienced. Weird spelt taste and a bitter-sour palate.

Beerbarella (343) - - SEP 11, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours clear golden with a medium white head, looks like Dampfbier. Wonderful appearance. Smells like vomit. Mild fruity taste, a bit watery. Mild sour grassy palate. All in all quite terrible. It gets bonus points for being organic, though.

Bamsen78 (3004) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear light golden with airy but stable white head. Clear, mildly sweet aroma of yeast and malt with notes of hops. Ditto taste, though the hoppy touches are more pronounced here. Slightly dusty and estery aftertaste. Nothing special, to put it mildly.

Douberd (2098) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2013
500 ml swing top bottle, poured into a lager glass at home. ABV 5.2% A bit pale but golden yellow colour on the body, with good activity in it. On top sits a two fingers tall head, white in colour and soapy, with average retention and no lacing left on the glass. Not bad aroma, mostly bread but not the stale one you get from others. A bit of grass as well. Taste is sweet at first, with lots of malts and the bread flavour, but it turns to light bitterness at the end and on the aftertaste. The body is thin, the carbonation average. Overall a nice beer, maybe a bit too sweet at first.

kidmartinek (3575) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Such a cute german drawing on the front. This beer may pour pale yelliw with a foamy white head but tastes like water. Good job. Its got some flavor of a hefe cut with 65% water. German crap at its finest.

(Flasche) Es hat eine hellgelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist ist süß, breit, etwas DMSig mit einer Note von fruchtigem Hopfen. Der Geschmack ist anfangs wässrig, dann nach einigen Schlücken kommt ein aromaähnlicher Geschmack mit leichten adstringierenden Eigenschaften und etwas stärkerem DMS. Im Abgang ist es fast ein bisschen ölig. Bittere ist kaum vorhanden
