MoritzF (9094) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2011
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a big and slightly tanned foamy head. Sweet and slightly bready malty aroma with a distinctively oxidised Madeira-like touch, accompanied by a tinge of candied fruits. Moderately sweet flavour with a light level of sourness, medium bodied with a calm, if not flat carbonation. Bready (cara-)malty taste with notes of brioche and a lighter fruity touch; mildly sweet and slightly sourish fruity finish. Something different but I have to admit that I am not a fan of this brew. 05.VI.11

thewolf (11827) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2010
Bottle. [thank you, Yespr]
Pours clear pale golden with a big, frothy, yellowish head. Mild aroma, yeast, sweet, biscuity malts and light lime. Lowish carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Flavour is weirdly sharp, soft malty, yeast. Kinda weird, but hides the alcohol well.

yespr (38487) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2010
33 cL bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is yeasty and slight phenolic. Dry phenolic and light malty flavoured. Slight bitterness coming through. Dry finish.

marcus (8589) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 20, 2009
This clear yellow beer poured with a fluffy white head and a floral aroma. There is a nice caramel malt flavor - not too sweet - with sme very tasty hop bitterness at the finish.
