Quack-Duck (7958) - Down South, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2009
bottle, thank you pivnizub. Amber-golden yellow, large beige head. Malty nose. Full-bodied, pleasantly malty with a touch of caramel and spicy hops in the finish. Shy hint of apple present.

DocLock (7912) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Bottle from State Line. Pours hazy deep copper with 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of heavy Wheaties dipped in almond, with some toffee and mild spicy hop notes. The palate was medium heft, with flavors of grainy malty Wheaties, some caramelly toffee-like hints, and mild fruit and hop notes. Gets a bit more tart and hoppy as it warms.

Beerhunter111 (7856) - Hasborn, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, leicht würzig. Geschmack angenehm malzig würzig, minimale Bitterkeit.

shrubber85 (7729) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 10, 2010

Old bottle. Don’t know if this is a Vienna or an Oktoberfest but it is not what I was expecting.

Fin (7538) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2008
Bottle, purchased from the Dodgy Deli’ Cowley Road, Oxford 30-12-08 and consumed same evening. Pours reddy amber in colour with a good white foamy head. Maltiness comes through first along with some caramel and the expected clean, pure, smooth taste that you expect of a solid well respected German brewery like this. What I never expected was the occasional worrying foray into Top Deck shandy territory which this surprisngly reminded me of on the odd occasion, it always managed to pull itself back from the precipice but it did worry me at times and I had to do a double take and read and re-read the bottle to make sure that I hadn’t gone back in time to an era of tank tops, Smiths salt and shake crisps and Marathon bars. That one rather serious criticism aside, I actually enjoyed this beer and whilst I would go for the others in the Weltenburg rosta first I wouldn’t pass this by. A6 A4 F6 P3 OV12

DruncanVeasey (7249) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2008 Bottle from Arden Wines, 5.4%. Bronze pour spiralling with effervescence. Head plump and rocky, mouth bulbous with silk and biscuit, glass woolly with froth. Disarming fresh gust of Munchen hay, honey, herb and biscuit. Sniff of sultana. FRESH freshbread malt, nibble of pinecone, honey slickness, appetising noble bite, just-baked biscuit linger. So very clean and elegantly Germanic. Oh yes. More than a bit tasty.

Skinnyviking (7129) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2005

rosenbergh (7012) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2012 500 ml bottle. From bierzwerg.de.
Copper colour with small off-white head. Malty, caramel sweet and dryish hoppy aroma. Flavour is caramel malty with some mild hoppiness but not much bitterness. Highly drinkable but not that interesting.
