UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 500ml bottle. Clear light/medium brown. Pleasant mildly malty aroma. Medium malt with some toast. Hops and moderate bitterness to finish. Perfectly drinkable if not exceptional.

Bijl (274) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2016
Donkergeel, helder, 1 vinger hoge witte schuimkraag, iets koolzuur zichtbaar. Aroma: Karamel, graan, broodachtig/biscuit. Smaak: Hetzelfde als het aroma..... erg granig, moutig, broodachtig, iets karamel en wat zoet.  Weinig hopbitter en een droog mondgevoel, waterig, medium body, weinig koolzuur en vlak. Afdronk is bitterzoet. Niets bijzonders.

StueyD (1567) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2014
A golden amber coloured beer with a thick and frothy white head. A biscuity malt led aroma, cereal and touch a hint caramel, then a slightly grassy hop aroma. Dry mouthfeel. A biscuity malt taste, caramel and cereal. This is then followed by a pithy, limey, citrus fruit flavour, that adds a sourness that lasts into the finish.

SlackerMads (2907) - DENMARK - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle, best before 2015-05-31. I didn’t expect much from this and I certainly did not expect it to gush all over the place. Pours clear copper with a medium sized diminishing off white head. Nose has lots of vegetables, butter and toffee. Flavour has some toffee/caramel, butter, nuts, vegetables. There is a good deal of bitterness all the way through yet it has a sticky sweetness to it that wears off leaving a long light bitter finish. Some things work, but the flavour is close to unpleasant.

Maxbier (899) - Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Golden pour white head. Aroma slightly sour slightly musty malt aroma. Slight banana malty flavors. Good amount of bitterness. Finish has a nice bitterness bit I don't care for the banana sweetness that comes with it.
