Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Pours a light gold with a gray white head that disappears. Aroma was interesting at first (unique) but wound up being bad: wet hay, herbal hops, barnyard (bad), rotten eggs, and urine. Taste is almost balanced but there is a foot odor funk. I’m not typing any more. This may be the worst beer I have ever had.

Very good beer overall. This actually is a niche beer to me-- at 4.4%ABV and around 132 calories, I consider this a light beer but it is indeed a little heavier than the typical light beers like Bud Light, Coors Light, Bud Select, etc. Most importantly, it is light BUT actually has good flavor, much better than the aforementioned brands. Very light but tasty hops come in at the end of the mouthful, and is nicely carbonated and refreshing. This might be the best alternative to Macro Brew light beers out on the market.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2017 A bit watery. Easy to drink, not unpleasant, but not much to really write home about. A tad flavourless

Schlumpfhunter (201) - Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2017
Schaum: fein, nicht viel aber immer was da. Farbe: leicht trübes Gold Nase: frisch, hopfig zitrone geapefruit, naja ein bisschen was von wc Stein ist dabei. Aber sehr lecker, relat komplex, was Fruchtiges, hm, Aprikose? Ist dabei. Geschmack: erst recht mild, weniger spritzig aber angenehm herb. Getreidig im Nachgeschmack, mist, Flasche leer. Lecker, aber zu wenig!

Bottle @ home. Pours a clear golden color. Balanced aroma of citrus, flowers, apricots white bread and some honey. Taste is light, crisp and medium bitter with an overall very short duration and not so impressive complexity. With flavors of citrus, apricots, white bread.
