Jonb5 (494) - Greater London, - MAR 11, 2013
Half litre flip-top bottle, poured into pint glass. Amber colour, hazy, large foamy off white head. Retention was outstanding. Aroma was cranberry, malt and dark chocolate, really had to think of a Dubbel or Doppelbock. Tasted cranberry, malt, dark chocolate and molasses. Only drawback was that it was slightly watery. Hints of slightly smokey malt in the finish. Smooth texture, decent carbonation, slightly heavy body but it worked. Only the fact that it was slightly watery held it back from being truly outstanding.

nybol (1364) - DENMARK - APR 15, 2016
En klassisk tysk øl der smager af humle og en anelse sødme. Men drikkelig tysk øl.

blackisle (1924) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2015
Swing-top bottle 50cl. (from drinks-of-the-world.de). Clear medium to dark amber color, small but steady frothy off-white head, diminishes slowly, good lacing; sweet malty nose, strong banana, bit vanilla; taste medium sweet and light bitter, toasted malts, nuts; medium body, watery to oily texture, soft carbonation, light sweetbitter aftertaste, light spicy and fruity notes; aroma promises a lot but alas not followed accordingly by taste and aftertaste, both on the thin side.

Bamsen78 (4926) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear full amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel, with notes of hops and yeast and touches of fruit. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with sweetish notes of caramel malt and estery touches. Lively carbonation, but the body is rather watery. Slightly bitter but mild aftertaste with hints of yeast. Very easily drinkable but nothin really special.

Fisler (371) - Bamberg, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2015
In der Farbe Bronzen, Schaum perlt leider sofort weg. In der Nase malzig, im Geschmack sehr karamellig, süß, etwas Banane ist auch dabei. Süffig, mir aber etwas zu süß.
