Bottle [thanks Ans!] @ home. Weird "coca-cola" appearance, quickly almost instantly diminishing fizzy beige head. What remains is a somewhat amber-brown colored headless beverage. So basically coca cola. Aroma is malts, iron, metallic and some light herbal influence. Taste malts, again a bit iron, slightly raisins, caramel, toffee, a distant hint of dark fruits in the background. Overall somewhat sweet like thick forest fruit jam/marmalade, with a moderately bitter touch in the finish. Body is average, texture is relatively thin, carbonation is medium. Drinkable, yet I wouldn't order a second one. Tometclo (408) - Paris, FRANCE - JUL 30, 2015

Pours a copper colour with a small white head. Weak aroma of toasted malts and nuts. Some dried fruits as well. Flavour of sweet toasted malts, grains, nuts and some mild dried fruits. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Pretty close to a märzen. Nothing special however and easy to forget.

Quite pale appearance for a Vienna. Aroma is stale with some roasted malt, berries and metal. Flavour is malty and somewhat sweet with metal, some grain and hints of berries. Slightly foamy palate that becomes sticky towards the end of the glass. Dry finish. Drinkable.
Danderlion in the aroma. Very sour and carbonated flavour. Fresh with a bitter finish. Though, pretty weak and watery. fiulijn (24190) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2003
Nice copper color. Strange aroms, like stuffed vegetables; some malt and a light sourness. Pleasant, but sour; was it intended? Quite dry, thin malt, quite balanced final. Bov (14988) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 2, 2003
red-amber colour, few foam, licorice and dark fruits with some caramel, good malt body, some acidity and a decent bitterness, the finish is earthy, malty - strong character omhper (28417) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2002
Bottled. Nut brown, hazy. Aroma of burnt sugar with notes of ginger and other spices. Sweet and malty, some crystal malt flavour. Low bitterness. Flavourful and enjoyable. pilsnerrogge (3248) - Finspång, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2002
Beautiful amber colour, somewhat hazy. Huge head. Aroma starts of in a light, almost Wit-like way with some burnt toffee in the background. When the beer gets warmer a piney resin aroma gets more and more dominant. Flavour is piney with some alcohol in the background. Bitter finish. A complex but somewhat unbalanced beer.
