Eine Beleidigung für die Bierwelt, da es im Grunde nur aus Zucker und Wasser besteht, dem wohl Farbe und Alkohol beigemischt wurde. Direkt nach dem ersten Schluck ging das ding in den Ausguss. Schäbig.

McTapps (3641) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2014
Oh my! Sometimes you really wonder why you do this. Really. Sometimes certain beers should be strictly banned - like this one. It pours out with a thin body, steady head and deep dark brown colour. Awful aroma of malt and sugar. Awful taste of sugar,caramel and malt. Not one bit better than the cheapest kwas available. Awful and undrinkable stuff.

Senka (425) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 23, 2014
50cl bottle. Sugar, sugar and sugar. Soft, creamy yet watery beer, with loads of sugar. You can taste some caramel and dark malts, but mostly it s dark colored water, with demerara sugar syrup. Definitely will taste to the sweet-tooths.

zenkis (549) - Ogre, LATVIA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours deep, bright coppery with off-white small bubbly top vanishing very quick, no lasing. In flavor it is very typical dunkel with more sweeter taste, high carbonation level and no memories about it after bottle is empty. Some spicy tones in flavor like Bohemian pilsner - a bit sharp malt profile and mild spicy hopping as well. No roast bitter in flavor to me, medium body, watery texture, no dry finish. One time try.

Erzengel (2398) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2013
The beer starts malty, slightly sweet. The mainpart is nicely smooth, not to sweet, but only very slightly bitter. The aftertaste is medium. Caramel, dark malt, highly drinkable but not watery. Aroma can be a bit deeper, but for this kind of beer it is ok. Probably a bit too sweet when it gets warmer, but the hop-bitterness in the aftertaste harmonises great with the malty sweetness.
--> Nice brew! Not too bad. --> 10/12/9/10

GIJOE (600) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Pours brown with a thin tan head that’s gone quickly. Sparse lacing. Nose is faintly caramel-like with a matching flavor. Notes of cola. Thin beer, lively carbonation. Not bad at all, but nothing special.

martjoobolut (596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 8, 2013
0,5 bottle. Pours very dark red, almost black with big light tan head. Aroma is dark lager, little metallic and caramel. Taste: intense sweetness and caramel, but also watery; there are also notes of rye?! Finish sweet with some bitter and sour thrown in, it’s also very watery. Medium-soft carbonation. Overall: looks very good, but taste is very watery and weirdly sweet at the same time

zvsn (509) - ISRAEL - DEC 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear brown with a small bubbly head. Aroma - caramel, light roasted malts, a bit skunky. Very sweet, almost cloying with caramel and cola like flavors, slightly metallic aftertaste. Watery texture with strong carbonation. Feels more like an over sweetened malt-beer rather than Dunkel.
