rostetti (176) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Can from market. Very nice looking beer with big creamy white head. Aroma and taste both seem to be a little lost. It is very smooth but too watery.

pkbites (867) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Lovely dark amber/reddish pour. Creamy smooth head. Almost no aroma whatsoever. This beautiful looking beer is very disappointing taste wise. Hoppy water is about all I can describe. Looks much better than it is. On tap @ The Brazen Head, Dublin, Ireland.

Always a pleasure to have one of those. I like the thickness and the nice malty flavour.

fdomig (831) - München, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2016
330ml bottle at Müller’s Pub, Hohenems. Aroma is light malt, light raisins. Appearance is clear, dark red to brown with a small brown-ish foam. Taste is light sweet, light sour. Medium carbonation, light dryness. Good.

hauxe (412) - Butzbach, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2016
Pours reddish brown from the bottle. The off white crown fizzes and disappears. A sweet caramel aroma greets the nose. Taste is malty with roasted notes. An initial sourness turns sweeter, with faint honey notes, before ending with a totally uneventful finish. A somewhat stale aftertaste lingers afterwards. The palate is very thin; the carbonation a touch too high. Not something I could picture buying again.

kto (886) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2016
0.33l bottle from kaisers in berlin.
pours a clear deep amber with a fluffy but quickly disappearing white head and little lacing. mild aroma of toasted malts, caramel, hay. flavour of cardboard, pumpkin, nuts. not too sweet, but mostly because it is just watery -- not too much of anything. fizzy carbonation.

Avetixz (96) - GERMANY - MAY 13, 2016
Aroma of caramel malt, bread, toast, resin, spruce, hops, citrus and some yeast. Pours clear dark amber, red liquid with a foamy white head that disappears quickly. Light to medium sweetness and light bitterness with a flavour of malt, caramel, grains, honey, resin and fresh hops. Light body with below-average carbonation, watery finish.

PintjeFritz (161) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2016
No information on the labels about the malts and hops in detail. A red clear beer with a short head, fizzy carbonation, very thin and a little malty, finish very short, summary a lot of water, no character for me (I have 0.33l bottle with batch L3003F10808 and best-before 12.2016)

willisread (2454) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 1, 2016
Tap at Sullivan’s in Kichijoji. Clear amber pour with 2 fingers of eggshell colored head. Almost no aroma noticeable, if I strain maybe a faint caramel aroma. Water on the palate and thin bodied. Light malty caramel notes. Papery finish. Meh. Standard Irish bar fare.
