Bottle. Light yellow pour. Not much head. Not much flavor. Below average lager.
From a bottle at the DC Expanded Sour Tasting, thanks to Travlr! Not a sour, but something to break up the tasting with a new country tick. Poured like a standard cheap Euro-style pale lager. Light skunk, a ton of sweet corn notes, nothing overly offensive in this one, perhaps a hint of attic. luttonm (6273) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle at Brony Tasting, DC. Eisbock from Travlr freezer, of course, thanks. Yeasty yellow. Very eastern european honey lager. Eh Drake (13737) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle shared by Travlr, 5/23/14. Pours golden with a thin head. Aroma of pale malt, spice and glue. The taste is pale malt, and a hint of bitterness if you look for it with an electron microscope. Thin. solidfunk (8964) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2014
So this is the Eisbock version thanks to Travlr’s freezer. Tastes like concentrated turpentine, much better than the regular turpentine. I like to think I can even taste some grain here. Pours kind of cloudy blonde but who knows. vinivini (2416) - Gomel, BELARUS - JAN 25, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 4.0 ABV on bottle. The colour is very pale. The head is weak & bubbly. Nose of bread, cereal, yeast. Not much taste at all: maybe sweetish & soapy. Watery polate, absent abrupt watery finish. No aftertaste. I’ll hardly try it again.

500mL thanks to Travlr via Boystout. Pours a clear lighter gold. Weak bubbly foam. No real formation. Nose is stale bread, very cereal heavy, small honey. Taste is bland, honey, vegetables, lemon juice, old grain. Palate is spicy, soapy, watery. Eh. Not offensive but no good.

Bottle courtesy of Boystout, thanks very much! Clear very pale yellow, small white head with poor retention. Aroma of dusty corn and paper. Taste is watery white pepper and straw. Plain.
