Flasche 50cl @ Schlossbrauerei Stein. Bernsteinfarben, moderat getrübt. Keksartige, karamellige Töne. Leichte Hopfennote und feine Bittere im Abgang. Solide und süffig.

ThirstyBird (2617) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Bottle from P&M, pours a slightly hazy dull amber color with a cream colored head. The smell is bread, earthy malt, nutty. The taste is as it smells with some herbal notes and a crisp finish. Light+ in body with fairly active carbonation. Pretty decent stuff.

Mortlach (1966) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 28, 2015
On tap @Buskers Pub (Rome). Pale yellow with a medium head. Aroma is mild, yeasts, bread, some off flavour (diacetyle?), not persistent at all. Flavour has mild bread, malt profile, mild bitter end, not so clean. Low body, inconsistent flavour. Disappointed.

Skinnyviking (8992) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle at home. Low but lasting fluffy white head. Cloudy amber body. Mildly spiced malt grass aroma. Dusty herbal malt grass flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long finish.

GoufCustom (1655) - HONG KONG - FEB 10, 2015

500ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Cloudy hazy straw golden honey colour with thin trace of yeast sediments; Three-quarter finger head and soapy white foam which lasted for 1 minute; Good sticky lacing and active carbonation; Quite fragrant and aroma of lager malt, with honey, very light dark fruits, light floral, light musty, molasses, bread, yeast, light lemon and light grass; Medium sweet taste of fairly light lager malt, with caramel, light dark fruits, light floral, strong molasses, white bread, light yeast, light lemon and very light bitter grassy hops; Light body. Close to watery palate; Mouth feel is fair maltyness in a really light body. Quite abundant light dark fruits and inoffensive strong molasses sweetness all the way. Not much floral, light breadyness and hops. Pretty one-dimensional but easy going and pretty fresh. Not bad… Hoppiness is light floral, light lemon and light grass in nose and taste. Bitterness is very light, better than most Macro Pales for an abrupt, sweet and low-blow bitter semi-finish; Slightly dry after taste. Sweet and very easy to mouth.

Comments: A Zwickel which is very easy to drink. Sweet and quite fruity but also quite one-dimensional, at least there’s no faults and quite safe as a refreshment. Treat it as an easy one and you’ll be okay.
