0,5 l can kindly shared by my beer pal and co-homebrewer Lars Helge. Clear pale golden with an off-white, 1" rocky head. Sugary, pumpkin aroma. Sweet, light acidic flavors with turnip and cardboard persistant in a bitter finish. Light syrupy. Light to medium body. Bland.

kuphish (380) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Whittling down my backlog of ratings. First rating since August 2010. EithCubes - eat your heart out. Can. Pours a clear, pale yellow body with a moderate, white, foamy head. Aroma is of musty, slightly stanky hops on top of sweet, candyish pils malt. A little spiciness from the hops peeks through. Candyish malt sweetness is up front in the flavor followed by some floral hops that are still somewhat musty. Touch of alcohol and faint bitterness. Medium-light body is slightly slick and has moderate carbonation. Lightly bitter finish. Overall not too tasty, but not terribly bad, either. Too sweet and musty to really be consistently drinkable.
