It is confusing, the webpage - here are two different webpages with two different adresses and so more. I could not found my beer Doppel-Hirsch Maibock but I think it must be this. A clear golden beer with a very short head, no smell, no finish, light sweet, honey, light body and thin texture, fizzy carbonation, (I have 0.33l bottle as Doppel-Hirsch Maibock with batch E054 and best-before 23.02.17)

MarkoNm (2381) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 25, 2016
Pours a clear dark golden color, topped with a small and non-lasting white head. Immediately disappears. Almost no aroma, just slightly malty feel. Taste is sweet with just a bit bitterness in the finish. Hints of spices and a bit of grass. Not a bad taste, actually.

From Hipercor. In Bavaria glass. Watching True Detective 1x02. Thin body, with a noticeable sweetness that in the long run becomes a bit tiresome. However, it can still be enjoyed.

Koelschtrinker (17681) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 5, 2016
Süß getreidiger Antrunk ohne große Herbe und auch ansonsten ohne große Aromen. Die Süße stört nach kurzer Zeit, etwas trocken, kurzer Nachhall. 9/6/7/6/7/6

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 25, 2015
Clear caramel amber color with fast decaying foam. The smell is sweet and a little sticky. The taste is oily thick with caramel chewing gum flavor. Matching carbonation and a nice dry sweet sticky aftertaste.
