Tmoney99 (10076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle shared at Natifest ’13. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate hop and dough malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2012
It’s slightly hazy dark golden with a white head. The aroma has notes of malt, butter (not unpleasant), light fruit and a touch of bread. The flavor has a light sweetness and is a bit thin-bodies with notes of malt, light butter, straw, light bread and fruit, the finish is dry.

500 ml bottle poured a hazy yellow with a lasting creamy white head. Aroma of straw, bread dough, citrus, spicy hops and light grassiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread dough and spicy hops with a smooth lightly bitter finish.

pivnizub (8576) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2010
Bügelverschlußflasche (courtesy of joss!): Hazy, lots of floaties visible, rather stable small white head, moderate honeyish-malty nose with a light hoppy background; light to moderate sweetish-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, quite soft; short and light bitter-sweet finish. O.K., but a bit lame.....

Bottle @ home. Just showed up in Colorado and looks pretty interesting. Here goes... Pours a hazy, golden yellow appearance with a big white head. Pretty tame, lightly grassy/floral hoppy, light pils/pale malty aroma. Light, crisp, a touch grainy, pils/pale malty, straw flavor. Pretty boring but I can’t find any faults in it.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2010
(swing top bottle, Schweinsbräu Gold, 4.8% abv, brewed by Riedenburger) Hazy, golden coloured hue with lots of floaties and a short, slightly tanned foamy head. Sweet and bready cara-malty aroma with notes of biscuits and a tinge of herbal hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Cara-malty, bready and slightly biscuity taste with shades of honey and shy herbal hoppy notes, getting slightly stronger towards the medium-dry, malt-accented finish with shy herbal hoppy notes. Drinkable. 19.I.10

Drake (7940) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Half liter bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a hazy golden color with a thin fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of grain and corn with a bit of nuttiness and a little bit grassy. The taste is pale grainy malts with herbal, grassy hops and a slight sweetness in the finish. Thin and watery.

crossovert (6344) - Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2011
500ml returnable bottle. 08.09.2012. Technically it is a Riedenburger beer. It pours a clear golden with a semi fizzy/foamy white head. The smell is pretty fragrant. It isn’t always that you get imports to smell this much. It has a lot of grassy noble hops, some honeylike malt, and more grain, bready malt. Pretty standard. This is a typical Riedenburger beer in the flavor. Slight tartness, grainy, a lot of undefinable sweetness. Carbonation is nice. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the Spezial form Riedenburger just repackaged. Overall just a really standard helles.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, unfiltered. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/cereal), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of DMS and soap. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Pretty difficult to enjoy...the nose is rather cereal-ish (think corn feed) and has obvious DMS. There is some hop scent to help a bit, but it’s really pretty clunky/swilly. Rather sour in the mouth without a lot of bitterness, and the aftertaste is not very clean. It’s not quite repulsive, but it’s still quite sad...which is surprising and disappointing considering that it’s apparently bottle conditioned.
