VertBaconStrips (2081) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 30, 2009
Dumped beer into glass and got a good sized tiny bubbled head floating on top of a light amber (very slight orange) coloured liquid with various sized floaties. Head lasted and came back with a good swirl. Man, if this doesn’t smell just like Rat’s Nest Cave - I will have bought more of this within 24 hours of this review - it’s waffing over to me...calling me...haunting me....now it appears that I can have the sharp aroma of pack rat nests in a bottle at my convienience - this beer is made for the caver who is stuck in the big polluted concrete city and is jonesing for unplesant underground squeezes. Some one call me on this one - if you know the smell, you can’t deny it. The perfect ammount of malty sweetness, fresh, and the usual euro skunk. Makes mouth happy. Medium bodied, crisp and smooth. Dry with slight bitter qualities. Flavours of malt and not much more. Drank in under 5 minuits.

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 30, 2009
Bottled 50cl. Boring. Malt accented. Unpleasant malty finish which is reminiscent of vegetables.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden body with a white head. Some light spice, and a boring malt bill, hint of caramel. This will not be memorable.

jerohen (1997) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2008
Bottled at home, swingtop, probably got this from some shop in Switzerland. BB 14 09 2008, sampled 03 12 2008. Golden coloured, white head. Dusty nose, malts and some fruit perhaps. Malty flavour, yeasty notes. Sweet finish. Unimpressive.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JAN 8, 2008
Típica cerveja de trigo alemã (só que essa é ssuíça), com notas muito pronunciadas de banana e leve mel. Boa.

ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2007
Zurich, 07. Cloudy yellow, very mild malt with yeasty aroma. Ok beer, but nothing special.

Quack-Duck (7912) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2007
golden colour, medium-sized head. Rather malty, slightly hoppy and yeasty. Otherwise nothing special to notice.

drpimento (2226) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Another sample from a new Swiss products distributor. A little better than the lager. A bit more lace, similar carbonation. Copper color. Tad sour in the nose, but also some caramel malt. Some of the old oak come thru but the sweetness predominates. Definitely not worth the price they were asking!

Gethinbeer (2154) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2006
Bottle. Light gold colour in appearance. This was a light beer to drink but at a suprising 4.8%. Sweet fruity taste. Good summer ale maybe.
