Bottle from Rewe Bamberg drunk on the train to Brussels. Clear mid brown dark amber colour lasting off white head. Not the freshest smelling beer bit of musty malt. Some fruit. Not much hop on the finish. Dullish TBone (17994) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2009
Bottled swing top (BB 08/2009).
Amber color, steady medium-sized creamy off-white head. Mouldy, caramelly aroma. Caramelly, grassy hoppy, a bit toasted sugars. Dry finish, as well as watery. Nothing to drink twice. FatPhil (16896) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 1, 2009

Massively grainy aroma, slightly porridgy - a bit pile of soggy malted husky grain. Pleasant carbonation, full palate. Simple but tasty grainy taste, full husk component. Finish a bit thin, unfortunately, as this is a taste I’d like to have hanging around. There are some hops, but they’re restricted to a light tingle in the mouth. Very drinkable, and a celebration of beers not having to be outrageous in order to be interesting. Tasty any time, any season.
Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus @ weekly tasting. Clear dark amber color, average sized beige to light brown head that leaves fair lacing. Smell and taste malts, cardboard, dark sugar, slightly sweetish. Low to average body and carbonation. Meh.
