Served on tap. Crystal clear golden colour. Thick long-lasting white foam. Slightly herbal and honey aroma. Malty and crispy flavour. The low bitterness sligtly restrains the sweetness. Medium body and medium-low carbonation. The 4.8% Abv is well masked. Easy to drink and enjoyable.

Juks (1393) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 10, 2017
500ml can. Pours clear golden, bubbly white sticky head, doesn’t last long. Aroma is sweet malty, grainy, , vegetables, quite weak. Taste is grainy, sweeter side, hay, papery. Herbal in aftertaste, watery. Light bodied, average carbo. Boring brew, lagery.

kraddel (9553) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2017
Bottle at home, thnx to Stijn ! Poured in an appropriate glass ( here in Belgium we use this for water and maybe soda’s, though ) . Pours clear blonde, medium sized, medium stable white head. Smell is mild malty, some white bread. Very mild hoppyness ( noble hops-style ). Taste is medium bitter, more bitter than the Gaffel, that is. Nicely malty aroma, full bready, mild doughy aspects. very aromatic, but more due to malts than hops. hops are a very gentle, remotely bitter refined touch, that really balances the beer. Pretty good, I prefer it over the gaffel.

Craftakt (314) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2017
Ganz leicht süßlich malziger Geschmack. An sonsten typisch wässrig süffig. Gutes Kölsch!

In Cologne, usually served in die Kölner Stange, 0.2 L. You’re supposed to put your coaster on top when you’ve had enough. Ticks on another coaster tell the server how many you’ve had. It was fresh, clear, "delicate." It was ok.

Tap @ Wurst & Schnitzelhaus, Amsterdam. Ruikt neutraal proeft redelijk neutraal met lager en heeft zijn bitterheid. Ziet er uit zoals een pilsje eruit moet zien met genoeg koolzuur voor een witte schuimkraag. Overall blijft het een standaard pilsje. Maar meer heb je ook niet nodig om een Oktoberfest te vieren.

lkowalkowski (665) - POLAND - JUL 20, 2017
Zlotej barwy, klarowne. Piana niezbyt trwala. Aromat slodowy. Malo intensywny. W smaku przyjemne. Bardzo delikatna goryczka na finiszu.

labeerinthum (1331) - Milano, ITALY - JUL 18, 2017
Bottle courtesy of Astrid K. Il gusto al naso va verso il luppolo e lo speziato. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è apprezzabile. Il cappello di schiuma ha una discreta resistenza. La grandezza delle bollicine è media e la carbonazione è nella norma. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Il perlage è costituito da bollicine fini. La carbonazione è abbondante. Il colore è giallo dorato. Il corpo è rotondo. Il dolce è medio e l’amaro è medio: non si surclassano. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di pronta beva. Il finale è dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. In bocca l’aroma restituisce sensazioni di miele e di aroma delicato.
