bluevegie (3052) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2005
Very light reddy honey coloured clear body with a gushing but compact white head. Light caramel on the nose as well as grains and pine notes. Taste is not as good as the nose promised, a little watery, burnt toast, herbal, figs and butterscotch.

ALLOVATE (2382) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2005
Another classic easy drinker from the Klostebrau Weltenburger. I’ve so far found their lagers to be amongst the best that Germany has to offer, and this is another on their belt. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a Weltenburger chalice. Clear, burnished copper body with a slight tinge of brown. A flurry of fine carbonation kept the dense and creamy white head in its place for the length and left a little legs. Gritty, dry and grainy nose like rye-bread and plain muesli with the slightest hint of orange peel underneath. Quite sweet, piney and very malty in the mouth; light in body and lively in carbonation. It crossed the tongue with absolute ease and finished off crisp, clean and with a little dried orange peel zest and sugary malt that lingered in the mouth briefly after the swallow. Malt driven, generously flavoured lager that, like the rest of the Weltenburger beers, went down a treat. Roll on the warmer months!!!! (50cL, 06/06/06, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

pivnizub (8769) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2005
Bottle: Deep golden to light amber coloured; deep sweet-malty nose (nutty, bready) with a tinge of honey; sweet malty start, becoming dryer soon; big malty flavour; shorter bitter-sweet finish, quite dry. A nicely rounded, very tasty Vienna !

Bottle in Florida. Clear amber color with an average creamy white head that was lasting. Good malty and fruit aroma. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Moderate sweet flavor with refreshing finish of average duration.

joergen (20649) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2005
Bottled. Clear amber coloured with a white head. Sweet aroma of malts and caramel with fruity notes. Sweet flavour with lots of caramel and malts. Nice.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Amber color with a tall sable light tan head. Dry malt house aromas. Nothing exciting in the nose, even a touch of fresh barnyard throws things off. Things settle down as it warms and a light floral aroma comes out. Solid light sweet malt throughout the quaff. Again nothing exiting, but nothing that throws the flavor off like the aroma. Clean and silky on the tongue. A very easy one to throw back. I think I could sit on the porch and have this all afternoon and not get tired of it.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - OCT 2, 2005
(500 ml bottle: $2.29 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA) Ahhh, what a nice nose on this beer. It’s very toasty, malty and grainy, and the lightly sweet caramel isn’t overdone, but on the down side for me, does smell a bit lagerish. The flavor follows the same direction; it’s toasty, malty, grainy, sweet and somewhat caramely, but just not as flavorful as the nose suggested to me. There’s a light bitterness toward the finish, but it’s not fully balancing, not that I expect nor want it to be. Medium bodied, perhaps just a touch tiring on the palate. Light amber in color, and would be fully clear were it not for the blizzard of fine particles suspended in the beer. Solid German lager, malty just the way I like it, but seemingly not a beer I’d choose to drink more than one of in succession.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2005
Pale amber colour with a big off white head. Malty and grainy aroma with hints of nuts and caramel. Malty flavor with some caramel sweetness and a nutty and buttery note. Nice thick mouthfell, finish is light hoppy.
