UPDATED: AUG 11, 2007 Cloudy amber pour with an offwhite head. Smell of honey, malt, and yeast, with a creamy taste. mouthfeel is bubbly, and somehow almost a gritty aftertaste feel. Something distinct about the taste that I can’t place. Not bad, but not great. Somewhat of a sweet yeasty taste.

From 50 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown with light brown head. Aroma is grassy and hay, malty. Flavour is slight sour/citric and malty. Dry bitter finish.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2007
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber with a rich frothy head. Roasted malt and caramel sweetness on the nose. Dry roasted malt and dough-like dryness on the palate. Yeasty dryness dominates over the malt. Slightly watery and not as rich on the palate as the nose would lead me to believe. Decent, though. Finishes carbonated and fairly dry.

thewolf (12486) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2007
Bottle [thanks to MoritzF and Papsoe]. Pours a muddy orange with a quite small off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma is a little weak, based on sweet malts - almost like dough. Flavour is equally mild, though well-balanced. A general malty sweetness is mixed with a good dose of caramel with a fairly hoppy end. Not much Festbier in style, but interesting.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of MoritzF. Slightly hazy, amber golden with an off-white head. Fruity and lightly caramelish nose. Medium body with lightly burned caramel notes, an initial sweetness but ends fairly bitter. An unusual but very interesting beer - and far from your typical Festbier. 290607

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2007
Bottle. Average rocky white head that quickly disappeared. Fair lacework. Clear flat looking body with an amber color. Aroma of bread, caramel, grain, nutty and fruity notes as well. Light toasted malty notes giving it a bit of edge. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor with light bitter notes as well. Lovely sweet and bread like finish that lasted.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Big malt aroma with some spicy hop notes, dry pumpkin, pale fruits and pie crust. The body is a murky brown/orange and holds a diminishing tan head that starts a thumb thick. Sweet malt fore has a little butterscotch candy, sweetbreads, honey brushed dough and buttery sweet potatoes. Very nice and easy drinking.

500ml bottle. Pours a very dark amber body with a huge, fluffy light tan head. German beer never fails to impress in the appearance department. It just looks like a beer should. On the nose I get spicy hops, sweet malt notes, biscuit dough, grapefruit, lemon zest and floral notes. Fore is lightly astringent, with the hops and bready notes dominating. Back of the tongue brings more malt sweetness into play, as well as the citrus hints. Palate is creamy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet bread dough and hops, medium length and refreshing. Great beer.
