MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, - MAR 1, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, golden colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Slightly bready and oxidised cara-malty aroma with citric and delicately woody hops. Sweet and mildly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malt upfront with bready and buttery notes, accompanied by a slightly herbal and fruity hoppy touch; moderately sweet and slightly hop bitter finish. Drinkable but not overly exciting. 01.III.13

DesertDevil (487) - Arizona, USA - JUN 10, 2014
12-oz. green bottle. Terrible adjunct-tainted, skunky nose of canned corn, faint potpourri, and old cardboard. Pours a very light clear yellow. Semi-fruity taste with notes of sweet corn, watermelon, rice, damp cereal, and the tiniest bit of floral hops to finish. Not very good; the sweet skunky aroma ruins everything. Why do certain breweries still insist on using green bottles?!? It boggles the mind.

JPDurden24 (1548) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 4, 2014
From the bottle, pale golden pour. Aroma is a little sweet skunk. Taste is a little better, some grainy and malty notes. It’s ok.

Bottle. Light soapy perfumed hop nose. Dark golden, lively, golden lace. Sugary, caramel base, Slightly sticky on the palate - medium bodyearthy hops in good quantities, sligtly strange grandmother soap retronasal. Sweet aftertaste. Needs to be a bit leaner for me.

pivnizub (8745) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle: Deep golden, nesrly clear, small lacy off-white foam, sweetish bready-fruity nose, some lazy hops underneath; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied and a bit sticky; sweet bready-malty finish, accompanied by only a very subdued hoppiness. Not too bad, but way too much on the sweet side…

sm89walt (1748) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2013
330ml bottle. I bought this under the impression (judging by name and label) it’d be a (India) pale ale or of similar ilk so was mildly disappointed to find it not the case. Poured a clear copper-amber with a modest one-finger off-white to light beige head and a slow fade. Caramel, OK malt and mid fruits in there but a fair grassy, subtly resinous bitterness presides. Light to medium body, medium-ish carbonation and a decent endurance to the finish. So, it’s not quite a (I)PA or similar, but it is a competent bitter. Bottled 25/06/13 so pretty fresh.

visionthing (2602) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2013
75cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks! Pours clear golden with a white head. Moderate malty and fruity aroma with some hoppy notes and hints of citrus. Medium sweet with a fairly nice bitterness. Medium body with fairly average carbon. Quite decent.

McTapps (3601) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2013
Beautiful bottle pours out clear dark brown / dark amber coloured beer with low steady head and medium body. Nose of bitter hops. Taste of spicy hops, dark bread, malt, nuts, whiskey, torf and vanilla. Hints of woods and basement aromas, but very fresh and light. Really easy and nice to drink with a nice balanced bitterness.

MichaelAwesome (3600) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. A nice one with some vanilla and hops in the front. Thought this was one a belgian before taking a look at the bottle. Decent hops aromas with a strange alc aroma and sweetish end. Nice, very nice.
