TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 31, 2007
Bottle, pours very carbonated to a slightly cloudy golden colour with a large white frothy head that disapated quite quickly. Definitely a grainy and sweet malt aroma with just a touch of hops and fruit (pinneaple) to spice it up. Quite a refreshing palate - gassy, but too offensively so. A sour malty flavour, not too much going on there, doesn’t drink like its 8% though. Overall OK, nothing amazing, but would be good with spicy food (and that must be the idea mustn’t it?).

JonMoore (1875) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2007
Bottle. Pale gold colour with a huge white head. Light sweet malty and grainy aroma. Malt and alcohol in the taste. Grassy and gassey. Not a bad European Strong lager.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2007
Clear yellow colour with a white head. Malty, light sweet aroma with a vague hint of grass. Malty, alcohol and grainy sweet flavor with a hoppy grassy finish.

zathrus13 (1719) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is malt, hops, fruit, and grain. Flavors is malt, fruit, grain, and alcohol, but is kind of flat tasting. Not as bad as it’s score, but nothing special, and nowhere near worth $11.

To start, I saw this in the NY Times which rated it quite highly. I really enjoyed it but as I was scoring it is really wasn’t getting huge scores. I like the bottled second fermentation flavor and would drink it again but at 11 bucks a bottle, that is tough.

luiss (89) - Elmsford, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Don’t know what style this beer is classified under. Big bottle at 8% alcohol. Pours out kinda weird. Looks almost like chammomile tea. Carbonation is live with a sour taste of pineapple, grapes, and stale hops. Taste lingers but fades out quick.

joergen (21072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2006
Bottle. Clear yellow coloured with a white head. Aroma of mlats, fruits and spices. Flavour of malts, fruits, alcohol and hops.

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2006
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Weak malty aroma and a sweet malty taste. Medium body with a sweet finish. Boring.

dj (521) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2006
Bottle, 750ml. A clear golden colour with a large head. Nice aromas of banana, orange, sweet caramel and a touch of yeast. Alcoholic taste with peach and hops. Somewhat sweet, but not overly so. A sweet, fruity, acidic finish. Moderate carbonation. Pretty good and without the alcohol burn you normally get from European Strong Lagers.

anders37 (16909) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2006
Bottle. Pale yellow colour with a white head. Sweet malty corn aroma. Sweet malty yeasty flavor. Sweet malty warming aftertaste. A little too strong and sweet.
