UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Smells mildly skunky. Head dissipates quickly. Taste is seltzer with a metallic aftertaste. Overall flavor is weak/watery.

On draft at rote fabrik. Waiting for explosions in the sky. Clear pale golden colour with little head. Aroma is almost nonexistent, maybe some honey coming through. No discernible hops. Flavour is alright, but really not exciting. Little body. Again some honey flavour with some hoppiness coming through towards the end. Finish is the most pleasant thing, medium bitterness and some herbal flavours. It’s better than most big swiss lagers but still far from what I’d call tasty.

tricksta_p (3155) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2016
Bottle from Denner Satellit, Triesenberg. Aroma is light grainy malt and cardboard. Flavour is lightly sweetish and lightly bitter. Body is light, very watery. "Watery" sums up this beer perfectly.

AssKicker (166) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAY 5, 2016
Bue à la pression. Bière blonde légèrement orangée à la mousse peu résistante. Malts en dominante avec un soupçon de caramel. Une bière germanique classique, sans grand intérêt quoi.

WillemsUrenkel (1358) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - APR 30, 2016
0,33 l can on a flight of edelweiss air from Zürich to Las Vegas for 5,00 €. But who cares on vacation? Clear golden in the glass, small white head. Flat taste, starts malty with some grain, low bitterness. Also low carbonation. Hop? Very easy to drink but nothing I would remember.

King_Alex_II (1095) - SWITZERLAND - APR 24, 2016
Blind test of swiss lagers. Golden color, some foam. Rather nonexistent smell. The taste is very malty, sweet and a little tart. The aftertaste is the one of old beer.

Can on a Swiss Air flight. Bow down to the Star Alliance Gold status, you fools! That’s what you get for doing clinical trials in all different sketchy ass companies, almost getting blown up in Istanbul, getting dirty in Delhi, and such. These are my spoils - no doubt every bit the Budweiser/Becks/Peroni/Kingfisher/Efes/Victoria Bitter/Tsingtao/Molsons/Tecate/Tiger/Asahi/etc of the country of Switzerland. I also just ate cheese soup and salami in a lounge. A lounge! I love living the high life, unless it’s the Miller High Life, in which case no thanks, get me something -bal aged at least, come on, are we animals here? Clear golden-yellow and fizzy with a one finger white head. Better retention and lacing than most in the style, so there’s that. The aroma is grain, white bread, touch of honey sweetness. The flavor is like a muted helles lager, medium sweet honey malt, only slight hop bitterness. Body is medium for the style, and carbonation is on the higher side as expected. Fine for what it is, but I wish it were something else, like a Cantillon, Hill Farmstead, or KBBS. Can planes not even get these beers? Just shows how good old fashioned service is going straight down the crapper!
