Koelschtrinker (10669) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Schöne Bernsteinfarbe! Ein malziger Genosse, bei dem man den Alkoholgehalt spätestens zum Ende hin deutlich schmeckt. Eigentlich lässt sich das Bier schön trinken und schmeckt zu jeder Zeit recht gut, auch wenn sich im Mittelteil eine leicht Wässrigkeit zeigt. Test vom 25.5.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,10,8,8,10,9 - 9,30

Roodbruin bier met witte kraag. De unieke smaak waar het etiket het over heeft ontbreekt. Smaak is eerder vrij standaard en vergelijkbaar met veel dubbels. Beetje een tegenvaller.

Tap. Cloudy caramel with big foamy head. Smells of sour dough bread and lemon. Tastes... weird. Not sure if I like it or not. More sips do not clear the issue for me. Kind of reminds me of retsina. Very sweet.

Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2011
Pours deep copper almost red with little head retention. The aroma has toffee caramel, slightly alcoholic and a hint of licorice. the flavour is quite smooth although a little on the thin side, the beer is well attenuated and slightly astringent later...over all a pleasant beer.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - APR 20, 2012
I drunk it on the Rhone bank, in a classic Belgian glass, not in the famous swan neck’s shaped glass sorry. It pours brown clear with a medium foam head. Sweet toffee flavors dominate that malty profile. Some esters, a light bitterness, nothing exciting but nothing wrong.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Pours dark copper with a small off white head. Nose is caramel malts, light spice and gummy bears. Taste is sweet throughout with and odd bitter that mixes in midway through. Mouthfeel is crisp and oily. Medium to light body with a long aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Solid malt character gives it a somewhat chewy flavor and feel. Pretty heavy on the caramel and roasted malts. Solid flavor, but not exciting and ultimately forgettable.

Chuckaduck (645) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pours red with a thin white head. Aroma is vanilla, herbs, earthy, cherry, cough syrup. Taste is vanilla, bubblegum, yeast, again cherry and cough syrup. Mouth feel is thin yet still syrupy.

Lagerboy (1232) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2012
Unclear muddy orange brown, foamy off white head vanishes. Yeasty sweet malt aroma. Roasty caramel malt, Belgian yeasty taste, dark fruits and burnt brown sugar. Low carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. Sweet malty finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)
