Pinball (11811) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2009
bought 17oct. 2008 el corte ingles, palma, rated mar 31 2009. best before 3-jun-2009. clear yellow, small thick white head. hoppy, but also a bit earthy aroma. flavor is a bit alcoholic, sweet and dark caramelly. reminds me of a grolsch i once tasted that was few months after best before date. ends sweet. i’ll have to rerate a fresh sample, as this bottleed one was not tasting good, i think it aged badly or have had too much heat at some point.

Bov (11500) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 20, 2009
from beerangel.de - clear golden-bronze colour with a solid white foam; aroma of corn and paperboard, some lactic tones; nice lace, slightly oily and medium-bodied, sweet and with some tartness; quite rough bitterness before a corny, paper-like finish

madsberg (11283) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. Off white dense and lasting head. Malty and light hoppy aroma. Flavour is full, malty, light hoppy and light fruity. Has a light chocolate note. I vague bitter and smooth in the end. Nothing special.

[10/4/11] Draught at Ølbaren in Copenhagen. Clear deep golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma of somewhat grainy malt. Sweetish flavor with some somewhat grainy malt and a slightly drier finish. Rather light-bodied.

Ferris (10794) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle - Cereal and malts with some skunk. Clear gold with a nice white head. Cereal, bread and pale malts with a very light sweetness to offset the light skunky hops. Nice.

crossovert (10770) - Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2011
I thought it was a tasty lager. The smell was actually the best component, floral with some nice fruitiness.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2002
The aroma is moderately malty with notes of clover and yeast. A crystal clear, golden beer with a medium-sized, fizzy white head. Slowly, but fully diminishing with decent lacing. A nice moderately malty and slightly pungent flavor up front. A hint of clover honey on the backside. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation. A short, crisp, clean, mostly dry finish with a hint of clover at the far end of the aftertaste. I might be mistaken, but I think this is my first Vienna. Nice, but not completely sold on the style. I will definitely try another next summer on a hot, humid day.

adnielsen (10424) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Bottle picked up at Beertopia Omaha, opened in Exira, Iowa. Clear, dark orange appearance with a big white head. Grainy, husky, light corn crib, light cobweb, hay aroma. Fuck this reminds me of my grandparent’s, farm five clicks away. Crisp grainy, fairly fruity, a bit dry, grainy flavor. Pretty easy to drink but there’s a bit of awkwardness between the grainy, straw elements and the fruit elements. Tried again in the bottle in Germany. A bit better this time around but nothing special.
