MarkoNm (1476) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - SEP 24, 2014
Clear dark golden color, topped with a hefty white head, slowly settling down. Mild malty aroma, slight fruity notes. The taste starts sweet, a bit too much, followed by a gentle bitterness. Slight metal feel in the aftertaste, but drinkable.

Koelschtrinker (12655) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 23, 2014
Würziger, mild malzig herber Antrunk. Karamellig, deutlich getreidig, bitter werdend. Zum Ende zudem herber, rund. Nettes süffiges Bier. 9/10/9/9/9/9

Wanja (694) - GERMANY - JUN 18, 2014
On tap (0.5 l) at Auerbräu, Regensburg... Very clear red-brown color, good stable head... Refreshing spring aroma like berries, nice alcoholic taste... Good summer beer, refreshing and easy to drink... Fruity ending...

kevnic2008 (9693) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2013
Golden amber body with fast-moving head. Malty and fruity nose. Taste is hoppy, dusty and bit sweetish towards the end.

mjs (5314) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2013 (Keg at Kneitinger Keller, 20130515) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts and grass. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, malts, molasses and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A tasty malty brew.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2013
It’s warm golden with a white head. The aroma has notes of malt, hay, caramel and a little fruit. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of malt, caramel, hay and a touch of fruit, and the finish is pretty dry.

pivnizub (9296) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle(Dank nach Garching!): Deep golden, stable white foamy layer, grainy and perhaps bready nose (oxydation like in a czech brew?), hops detectable; light to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied; slightly lingering hoppy-grainy finish. Not great, but decent…

jonas (6100) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2012
Clear glas bottle. Light beerylike notes on a light bready chewy malt body, good grass bitterhop finish, berries retronasal. Nice amber hue, golden lacing foam. I was positively surprised by this - thought it would be one of those anononymous partybeers, but it is actually quite solid.
