Caramelly brown, small tight head. Initially a little lagery malty aroma, but that sweetens to become more bocky and a little fruity after a while. Sweet almost sherbetty body, good carbonation, very crisp. That crispness is highlighted by the spiky throbbing hoppiness. Slight alcoholic hit, but well within acceptable bounds. Sweet malty body helps keep the hop spike grounded. Decent hoppy finish. Just what I needed after nearly a week of abstinence!
An yellow/amber colored beer with a off white head. The aroma is malty and sweet of caramel and some fruits. The taste is fruity of orange, a little hop and malt. A sweet aftertaste. Borresteijn (7273) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2010 Bottle @ home. Dark golden colour, white head. Nose of citrus, hops and malts. Taste is malty sweet, little hops, some citrus. This is not the sweetness I like in a beer. 53438
Re-rate: Had 3 bottles of this yesterday, ABV 7%. A lot better than I remembered. Clear amber colour, good slightly off white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, some honey. Flavour is sweet, malty, caramel, bready, a hint of spices, nice slightly grainy and light hoppy finish. Light to medium bodied. Drinks way too easy for 7%. 637313 TaxiDriver (1775) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle. Quite hoppy, flowery, light citrus, moderate malty, like fresh bread. Small white creamy head, rather fast disappearing. Clear orange body. Medium duration, medium sweet and light acidic. Light to medium body, dry and creamy texture, lively carbonation. Nice one.

Bottle. Pours a light body light amber, with a sickly looking offwhite head that rapidly goes down. Nose is a sweet metallic. Taste is sweet quickly taken over by the bitter of the hops. Fast hoppy finish. Yves (3054) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2008

Darker blond coloured beer with rather little carbonation and a small white head. Sweet roasted malty aroma. Medium palate. Finish is full malty sweet grainy. Medium one. RoyceH (1199) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - APR 25, 2008
Bottle at Tulip Inn, Maastricht Aachen Airport. Light chestnut with a thin creamy bubbly white head. Nose is slightly alcoholic, pineapple, malt, hops, grass. Mouth is malty, strong alcohol, fresh grass, more banana and underripe pineapple. Lasting dark fruitiness and malty. Good, alcohol too obvious to be better, and a weird play of dark and light fruits.
