pivnizub (10252) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2009
Grande bouteille (de Quack-Duck!): Golden, a bit unclear, lacy white foamy layer; sweet grainy-bisquity nose, traces of marzipan included; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; light to moderate sweet-bitter finish with marzipan and a little tartness in the finish. Quite O.K., but not really convincing.......

It’s golden with a white head. The aroma has notes of malt, apple and citrus. The flavor has sweetness and notes of yeast, malt and fruit. The finish has some slightly spicy citrus.

MoritzF (9500) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2010
(bottle, 75cl) Hazy, pale golden colour with a fluffy white foam. Moderately sweet and grainy malty aroma with a tinge of biscuits and marzipan, accompanied by traces of flowery hops. Moderately sweet and faint bitter flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Slightly grainy and subtle fruity taste with light floral notes; medium-dry mildly grainy and shy fruity finish. A bit flat but drinkable brew. 02.XII.09

Quack-Duck (9209) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2007
bottle, bought at Auchan hypermarché. Clear pale yellow, persistent head. Well-balances hoppy and malty bière de garde. It appears quite spicy has hints of grain.

Erzengel (8041) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2016
Many thanks to beerhunter111 for this bottle! Easy to drink but sweetish grainy. The body has lots of sweetish grain, not too much bitterness, round and easy to drink without too many depth.

ogivlado (7311) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 8, 2008
Bottled(750ml). -from Auchan Budapest tried in Sarajevo.
Golden coloured, medium to big sized white head that went away slowly, light cheesy nose. Sweet malty, herbal and slight yeasty taste with notes of spices and friuts. Some grainy notes in rather bitter finish. To be honest I’ve expected (much) better beer.

Cunningham (7230) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2012
Golden colour with a white head. Malty and light fruity aroma. Thinner texture than expected but also a bit more hoppy than expected. Light malty and hoppy flavour.
[Bottle from Auchan Market in Luxembourg]
