0.5l can dug up from my mother’s basement. I found a big bag packed with old beer cans that I totally had forgotten existed in my mothers basement, and this was one of them! Anyhow, this one pours a dark clear golden body with a quickly diminishing just off-white and sidesticking bubbly head. It does really not smell all that much. I get some light acidic tones blended with pale malts and perhaps some not so pleassant metallic hints. The flavor is either not exactly how it used to be. It might have something to do with the expiration date, but I’m not sure this one ever tasted that good. It has a average to lively carbonation level with a thin and somewhat watery texture. Light sweet and buttery in the flavor, more of the irony-metallic tone found in the aroma. It ends light drymouthing with a hint of sour in the aftertaste. Not as good as I remembered it, but still a damn good surprise to have this one last time, as this was one of the first "other than Hansa"-beers I purchased back in the days. 14.01.2012 Koelschtrinker (20208) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Etwas herber und angehaucht süßer Antrunk. Schnell wird das Ganze trocken, in Teilen blechern. Dies stört nicht, ist aber auch nicht unbedingt das schönste Aroma. Trocken herber Abgang, minimal würziger Nachgeschmack, in dem sogar Hopfennuancen vorhanden sind. 8/8/7/5/7/5

0,5 l can. Pours clear copper with a small off-white creamy head.Aroma of sweet malts, light hops. Taste is light roasted malts, moderate sweet caramel and toffee. Some herbal hops finishes off this relative boring beer.

Dark golden with small white head - some malts in the aroma - same malty taste with hints of caramel and hop - ok, but not more ClubGonzo (5668) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2010 Pours a nut-brown bronze "dunkel-style" body with a medium, quickly disappearing top. Smell is faint roasted malts with metallic hints. Taste is caramel malts with hints of toffee. Slightly nutty aftertaste, disrupted by some metallic touches I don’t care much for. Some fruitiness, though well hidden, comes forth early on the palate. Solid hop bitterness and slightly dry finish. Not bad, but not great either.

Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruits, malts, some slight toffee and mild grainy notes. Flavour is rather pale lagerish with some slight caramelly notes in it.
Canned. Clear deep golden, coarse head. Mid dry with a bit of wort. Light bodied with clean rounded mouthfeel, slight grassy bitterness. Clean and relatively classy for a supermarket lager. KimJohansen (10492) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2009

Can. A dark amber beer with a lazing light tan head. The aroma has notes of caramel, malt, and some over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, metal, and a bit of nuts, leading to a dry metallic finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2009
