dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - APR 2, 2005
Bottled. Sweet, malty aroma with a hoppy background. Sweet, malty flavour. Actually, a decent and clean strong lager, but not really good.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2004
Dark golden amber with small white head. Heavy maltiness in both aroma and flavor. Flavor has some sugar and alcohol.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2004
Very little aroma. Sweet malt, a little meaty, not much hops. Dark golden amber clear with thin white head. Thick watery body with medium carbonation. Starts pretty sweet, with thick sugary malts and light acidity. No bitterness at all, just a bit dry in finish and after. Almost tastes fortified, like malt liquor, but tastes of higher quality.

Sigmund (5307) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2004
(500 ml bottle). Golden colour, good thick head. Aroma of molasses and alcohol, hints of oak. Flavour is very sweet and alcoholic, a decent hoppy bitterness in the finish can’t save this beer from being too cloying sweet in my book.

Ungstrup (29802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2004
An amber beer with a fine off-white head. The aroma is of caramel, yeast, straws, and dust. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and straws and the body is strong. Probably the best European Stong Lager I’ve had.

Jeppe (2631) - Řlbutikken, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2004
Clear golden beer with a thin off-white head. Strange aroma of herbs and boiled vegetables. Maybe it is just me but I also find vegetables in the flavor?! Mostly sweet with some hops and citrus in the end. What is wrong with this brewery, I can’t believe how crappy beers they brew.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2004
Hoppy aroma, some metal and malt. Clear golden body, small white head. Fruity flavor, quite nice.

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2004
Copper-gold, very clear, very carbonated; yellowish tinted head. Sweetish-alcohol nose, very malty, nearly syrup. Taste is pure maltsyrup. This is a good malt liquor; sweet, alcoholic, pâtisserie, caramel. Syrupy MF, full bodied, very slick. Good - but not exciting. Probably excellent in its class - but that is not really difficult.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - OCT 9, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2004 (on bottle) I don´t know, maybe I was in a good mood. But this is a prime example of a ESL. Powerfull malted and alcohol nose, really intreaging. Has a wonderfull pale amber color and an small head. A really full mouth, loads of malt, brown nuts and craneberries. Sweetness in perfect balance to the hopping in the finish. And we´re talking a clean Saazerhop here, no amarillo or sweet cascade, clean czhech beer here.
