angel77 (1016) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 22, 2014
Botella de 50 cl de el c. Ingles, tomada en mayo de 2005. lote 416 hasta agosto de 2005. un poco mas fuerte que su compańera pils, aun así se queda bastante floja, con 5.1 vol bastante fácil de beber. No es gran cosa.

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 5, 2011
500 ml bottle (Von Krahl Bar, Tallinn)
5+ Simple malted barley, just like the freshly malting stuff we tasted in Aizpute, pleasantly sweet, but not caramelly at all. Perhaps a bit more medicinal later.
2+ Clear gold, and a small but nicely persistent head.
5+ Clean and simple malty taste, a touch chalky, some pineyness, a touch of eco to the grains.
3 Simple palate, crisp carbination. Immediate finish very menthol-like, but its just keeps getting more and more perfumey, over time to a quite absurd level.
11 Fairly clean, but more than a little quirky. Not that that’s a bad thing at all. I can imagine some lager drinkers raving about this, it’s just not quite my style

yespr (31470) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours golden clear yellow with a crispy white head. Dusty grain aroma with a distinct bitterness. Carbonated mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet malty with a nice blend of the bitterhops into the finish. Ends mellow dry with a persisting light malt note.

heavy (2144) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 4, 2007
0.5 l bottle found at Bio-Bio shop here in Split (great thanks Doggythedog for the tip!). It poured pale yellow body with almost no head. Aroma is very different than other lagers, corn, some malts and just a bit of citrus hops. Flavor is bitterish, sweetish a bit. Medium bodied, but goes down smoothly. Average carbonation. Finish is a bit sweet. Quite good beer, although nothing too special.

chiara poca schiuma non fine per niente persistente mediamente luppolata un po scialba in bocca

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - AUG 18, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Bottled 0,50L. Voluminous and compact head, good duration. Limpid yellow color, medium fizz. Stinging and bitterish scent; notes of cereals, fresh grass and dampen malt. Prickly taste, nearly sour (I do not find the definition), with pleasant sourness and final alcohol. Not much persistent.

Marko (3960) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 16, 2005
0.5l bottle from a bioshop in Zagreb (thanks again to ozujsko for the tip!)
Right, I forgot to say this in the Pils review, but both of these are brewed by some brewery called Aktienbrauerei Simmerberg for the Rapunzel Naturkost. I’ll do some research, and send corrections if necessary.

Now, onto the beer. It poured a big thick white head that went away fast (smaller but thicker than the Pils head), leaving a lot of nice lacing on the edges of the glass. Slightly hazy golden colour. Looked promising until I smelled it.... Remarkably n/a-ish malt nose. I agree with muzzlehatch on the corny part... something just felt odd. The taste was interesting, but in my opinion not as good as in the Pils. One rather assertive, and interesting kind of malt dominates the taste going from honey to strong caramel to nuts. Sounds impressive, but in practice, it isn’t, some fruitiness in the background, provided perhaps by the same kind of malt as in the Pils. No noticable hops, exept maybe some extremely faint hints in the aftertaste. Interesting beer, but not great.

haf (528) - Gijon, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2005
Un poco mejor que la Pils pero no comparable con una buena cerveza. Posiblemente la mejor cerveza organica.

ogivlado (5787) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 24, 2005
Bottled(500ml). -pale golden coloured, sparkling white head, little bit too watery, slightly bready and fresh aroma, easy drinkable beer

Eirikur (370) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - AUG 22, 2003
Nice head, holding well. Smooth and creamy-ish, but a little harsh on the body side. This is my first organic beer and it is promishing.
