Mortlach (955) - Rome, ITALY - APR 22, 2012
20/04/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Dorata spenta, lievemente torbida, con buona schiuma biancastra. Aroma non molto intenso ma meravigliosamente armonioso, sentori di pane (lieviti), latte e miele (orzo). In bocca č dolciastra, delicata, maltata, con amaro non percettibile, ma che contribuisce al bilanciamento complessivo della birra. Sorso dopo sorso emerge una gradevole e inaspettata complessitŕ nonostante la sua semplicitŕ di base. Corpo medio, carbonazione molto (troppo) abbondante. Davvero una bella birra, peccato per la carbonazione eccessiva che ne limita la bevibilitŕ.

EithCubes (4627) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle by 18.04.2012, with the grenade pull-top (and this one more pleasurable than usual). Nose is quite sweet with dominant vanilla and lemony citrus. Golden body with a creamy white head. Taste is sweet and somewhat bitter with (too) strong floral-hoppy overtones, the rare touch of German resin and complementary chalky yeast. Full-bodied and smooth, creamy, leaving with a dry metallic wave and slightly sour goodbye. Worth a try, but a little difficult.

On tap at Summer Beer Festival Rome on MesandSim’s epic stag do. Slightly hazy pale gold with a thin white head. Dusty malt aroma with hints of hops. Bit of creamy vanilla and hints of lemon in the flavour. Pretty drinkable actually, not bad.

ogreface (1331) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 28, 2011
Olyan színe és állaga van, mintha erősen citromos teát látnánk a poharunkba, amibe valahonnan, pár apró buborék került. Habja krétafehér, közepes méretű, krémes és elég jól bírja. Illata citrusos, vizes lópokrócos, malátás, kissé fanyar. Ízében nagyon szépen egyensúlyozik a maláta gyümölcsös édessége és a komló kissé fojtós, szalmás kesernyéssége. Hozzájuk kapcsolódik még egy kis citrusos fanyarság és egy kis pincés dohosság és egy falatnyi mogyoró. Közepesen testes és enyhén szénsavas. Utóíze citrusosan fanyar és kissé száraz, keserédes. Nagyon kellemes sör, ami mellett igen jól lehet traccsolni.

rauchbierlover (580) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2011
33 cl bottle. Pale yellow with vanishing white head. Everybody says it’s foamy and lasting, but I don’t know why, mine was inexistent. Aroma of grass, a bit metallic. Nice body, maybe a bit too carbonation for my taste. Not bad, but kellerbier is never been my favourite style

Tap at 4:20, Rome. Pours cloudy gold with a foamy, white head. Biscuity malt nose, light grass. Medium sweet, more biscuity malts, light corn. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Sweet, light bitter finish, more bread. A great drinker.
