Koelschtrinker (17288) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 7, 2015
Langweilig herber, dumpf hopfiger Antrunk. Wenig aromatisch auch im Mittelteil, spritzig, leider dumpf bleibend. Mild bitterer, etwas metallerner Abgang. 10/7/7/7//7
Earlier Rating: 6/5/2011 Total Score: 2.5
Sehr herber Geruch. Herber, fast bitter werdender Antrunk. Im Mittelteil ist die Herbe führen, wirkt zeitweise aber auch muffig. Etwas langweiliger Nachgeschmack, denn auch hier verändert sich recht wenig. Test vom 23.2.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,8,7,7,5,7 - 7,15

MiP (15272) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2009
Bottle, 4.7%. Subtle aroma, hint of honey? Clear yellow colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is also subtle, but there is a hint of flowery aroma hops. Nevertheless, quite boring.

shrubber85 (10670) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Bottle. Creamy barley malt and grass hops aroma. Golden yellow with minimal head. Tangy grass hops up front with a lighter barley malt flavor. Nice taste - hops more pronounced than is typical for the style.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2010
It’s slightly hazy golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of malt, grain and flower. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of malt, clover-flower, fruit and the finish is slightly dry. It’s soft and pleasant with a refreshing finish.

pivnizub (10136) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2007
Bottle: Mid-sized creamy head, slowly diminishing to a stable foamy layer, sweetish-malty nose with a tinge of vanilla; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; sweet grainy finish with a faint bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite faceless, more a Helles than a Pils........

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2007
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a fluffy, but non-persistent foamy white head. Herbal hoppy, slightly tart and citrousy nose with a light-sweet malty background and some gassy, skunky notes. Tries to keep balance between a rounded mal-character and good hops presence with more or less effort, but is pretty watery and furthermore quite flat on carbon. Not a price winner.
