oh6gdx (22531) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2015
Bottled (from Bier Zwerg). Yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is herbal, fruity, some bready malts and also rather sweetish malty notes. Flavour is bready, sweet malts, some slight grass, hay and mild floral notes. Easy to drink, and not all too special, but still gives a nice long bitterness in the finish. A bit mouthdrying as for the palate.

bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2015
33cl pull-cab bottle bb07/2015, Karstadt Müchner Freiheit. Assertive sweet yellow apple and slightly sour-sulphurish apple peel in the nose. Returns in taste on mild almond malts, creating a sensation of thin-crusted apple-almond tarte with some hop spice and a caramelised apple crust. Decent.

mile (3422) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, faint bread with light grassy hoppyness. Body is light to moderate, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, faint bread and light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - grainy and lightly sweetish, faint bread and light metal with light grassy - herbal hoppyness. Not too sweet kellerbier. Sharp metal in the finish makes this one not so enjoyable.

kappldav123 (5480) - GERMANY - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle looks interesting, different than all the other beers from the brewery. Beer in the glass zippy, nice small head. Starts mild, malty, modest dry. Moldy background, light sourish. Finish more balanced with fruity hints of apricot. Quite drinkable. Not bad!

Bozo_skeleton (723) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 14, 2014
Blonde doree un peu palichonne et voilee, carbo moyenne, collet de bulles moyennes. Aromes legers, pain beurre, agrumes, paille. Saveur cereales. Attaque vive, final assez amere avec un retour legerement piquant.

Westkyoto77 (561) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle. Poured hazy blonde, big broken head. Slightly stinky nose of wheat and overripe fruit. Body rather thin and uninspired. Flat flavours of wheat, banana, peach. Perhaps the bottle was close to expiry. Even so, not again.
