UPDATED: AUG 31, 2010 33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a short lived head. Aroma is grassy hops, light malt note. Sweet nutty flavoured, caramelish malt and distinct bitterness. Goes into a dry and lasting bitter finish with a hint of chestnuts.

330ml bottle (Aumm Aumm, Rome)
Very bland plasticky aroma. Crisp carbonation, watery palate. Slightly nutty retronasals. Plasticky taste, with the plastickiness heading towards menthol in the finish. Tastes a bit artificial.

VertBaconStrips (2022) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2009
Poured out a slightly hazy yellow gold with some floaties. Quickly vanashing white head that remains as a film and near zero lacing. The aroma sucks. Dirty, stinky, fake apple, crappy malt, dry, wheat. It is easy enough to drink but just isn’t that appealing. Appley (new word!), powdery, malt, wheat? Light bodied. Kind of empty, dry and slighty bitter...less than boring. Save your money for escorts.

Cirrhosis (1175) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
Pale gold, or maybe browny yellow, just a skiff of bubbles on top, just your average looking lager nothing special. The aroma is bitter rotting tomatoes, cheap nasty malts combined with a good heap of compost, this horrible smell is not disgusting me it’s bad smelling but not repulsive. Flavor seems watered down and thin, old stale malts are all I really taste. This beer is just boring and forgettable, it’s drinkable but I would never want it again.

Bottled 33cl. Appearance: It pours a clear pale golden beer with a small white head. Not much lacework. Aroma: Chestnuts and honey appearing. Rather malty. Faintly metallic. Flavor and palate: Malt accented. Sweet with hints of chestnuts, metal and vegetables. Easy drinkable. Medium bodied. Malty finish. Overall impression: Decent.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2009
[33cl bottle] Clear, pale golden colour with a short frothy white head. Moderately sweet nutty and almost almond-like malty nose with a slightly smoky touch. Light-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, smooth carbonation. Malt-accented nutty taste with a medium-dry, slightly smoky finish. Not a real highlight but at least interesting and likeable [29.X.08].
