UPDATED: NOV 30, 2012 I had really high hopes for this beer so maybe that is why I found it to be extra disappointing. The overall feature of this beer without a doubt to me is BLAND. Nitro pours beautifully into the glass with a pale copper hue. Creamy white head and then....nothing. It is so watery and bland it is truly unbelievable. Like drinking water. Super weak. I guess it helps to quench your thirst? There I said one good thing...

0.565 l can as a gift. I had this one before joining RateBeer, therefore this entry is based on numerical notes only.

Kauge (1580) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 21, 2016
Bottle from a local supermarket. BB 12.01.2017. Pours clear light caramel with off-white head. Faint aroma of toasty malts, slightly caramelly. Tastes sweetish-bitterish without actually being either. Dry, malty, toasty with grassy finish. Watery on the palate with crisp carbonation. Some creamy/lactic aspects on the palate later on... I don’t mind this but not exactly enjoying either.

Draught at Speakers Corner, Browns Bay, Auckland. Amber color with OK head. Not much of an aroma. Medium bitterness with malty body but a thin finish. OK.

mateuszk (2005) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Draught. Dark amber, almost no head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt, biscuits, pears. In taste lightly sweet, bit watery with caramel and malts. Medium to light body, soft carbonation, finish is lightly bitteer. Very plain but stil ok.

Una Irish Ale de color ámbar rojizo de baja carbonatación. Su aroma es a frutos rojos (frutillas), caramelo y bizcocho. Su sabor es de inicio dulce, suave a caramelo, levadura y final amargo cremoso. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- rot-braune Farbe mit guter Schaumbildung - leichte, kaum wahrnehmbare Aromen nach Röstmalz - Carbonisierung ist mir eine Spur zu moussierend - geschmacklich ist es von Anfang bis Ende leicht würzig und bitter - mehr tut sich aber auch nicht Fazit: Der Kultfaktor ist weitaus größer als der Geschmack

[backlog] 13-11-15 / draft at Porterhouse Mainz. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 2.5/5

On tap. Beautiful nitro pour. Amber dark. Mostly malty aroma with sweetness. Thin and light. Nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
