omhper (19799) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2004
Bottled, thanks Bov!
Dark amber, small head. Flowery, buttery nose where DMS dominates. The mouthfeel is clean and hard, and there is lots of stale boiled vegetables. Medium bodied with some bitterness. Not good...

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2003
Blond color. Too much homebrew style; yeasty, watery. No malt nor hop to tell about…

Koelschtrinker (10962) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 6, 2011
Mild hopfiger Antrunk, wenig muffig. Das Bier wird nun süßlich herb auf geringem Level, in Teilen trocken. Sofort milder, trocken gerstig, der Hopfen spielt kaum eine Rolle. Schnell ausgleitend, ohne Besonderheiten. Ein trinkbares Bier, weiter nichts. 8/7/7/6/9/6

Bov (9683) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 5, 2003
clear golden-amber colour, almost no foam, floral hoppiness, mild and sweet, medium-bodied, moderate aromatic aftertaste - well-made and balanced, easy but interesting

pivnizub (8999) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2007
Blue bottle(Thanx to Quack-Duck):Golden to deep golden, slightly hazy, small, persistent lacy foamy layer, grainy - with a tinge of glue - nose, aromas of cardboard and grassy hops, some fruitiness detectable, moderate sweetish-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; lingering bitter-fruity (peaches) and als sweet-malty finish. Disappointing aroma, all in all quite well drinkable stuff......

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2007
(33cl blue glass bottle, with thanks to quack-duck) Hazy, orange-golden colour with a fluffy, slightly off-white foamy head. Herbal, slightly spicy hoppy aroma with a soft malty, slightly toasted background. Light bitter flavourm light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Initially malty, slightly strawy taste with shy herbal notes and traces of caramel; dryish and slim malty, slightly bitter finish with a whiff of herbal hops. Rather disappointing due to the fact, that this one has been brewed by Weinfelden/Bärlocher in cooperation with a Swiss hop-producer.

Quack-Duck (8032) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2007
blue-coloured bottle, bought in Weinfelden. Brewed in cooperation with the Bärlocher Weinfelden brewery. Pale yellow, quite cloudy, large head. Grainy and malty flavour, slight flavours of herbal hopoy, full bodied. Long and intensive aftertaste.

jonas (5736) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2009
Bottle, thanks Allen. Golden, plentifull carbonation, creamy head. Clear despite the yest clinging to the bottle. Spicy malt aroma. Sweet malt entry, creamy light stickymouthfeel, stays on the sweet side, stale, light grassy finish- could use a bit more hop zest to be balanced and live up to its name.

jgb9348 (4812) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2010
Very slightly hazy golden coloured body with a mild copper tint and a very thin white head. Aroma of stale malt, funky cardboard, a touch of hops, metal and some old rice - not good. Medium-bodied; Assertive malt character with some fresh fruit, sugar and a surprisingly decent flavour. Aftertaste shows good balance, some hops coming through the malt and a good fruity finish. Overall, a better beer than looked and smelled, but definitely not as good as I thought it would be. I sampled this 33 cL blue bottle purchased from Drinks of the World in Zurich, Switzerland on 08-November-2009 drunk on this side of the pond at home in Washington on 27-January-2010. Best by date: 06jan10 - off by 3 weeks time - whoops!
