kappldav123 (4797) - GERMANY - AUG 3, 2009
The bottle looks very simple. The beer in the glass is darker than exspected. Starts spicy, modest dry, a bit wheaty. Finish a bit washy-metallically. Quite drinkable. Not bad!

Quack-Duck (7793) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2008
previously tested on German BTO 01/2007: Ein bernsteinfarbenes Schankbier, das hier in meinem Glas wartet. Leicht säuerlich, malzig und recht würzig für ein Schankbier. Gut!

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JAN 10, 2008
(on bottle)Steady white head, light orange color. A vague aroma of malt and hay. Not that big a malttaste, just sllips away from being a tad sourish. Flat finish, not so much due to the low alcoholvolume, but more the low carbonation.

EithCubes (4813) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2006
Bottle. Malty and mildly hoppy (in the industrial) sense. Clear amber with a short white head. Not exactly thin, but certainly stale, flat. Oy!

shrubber85 (7515) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Bottle. A molasses malt aroma. Dark amber with small head. Thick molasses malt flavor - body on the watery side. Decent for a lower alcohol beer but definitely not one to pick over regular beer unless you’re the designated driver.
