Nickls (2507) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle) Pours a mostly clear dirty blonde color that nears on brown at points; half-finger of pure white head that doesnt last very long, but has some residual lacing. Light earthy hop bitterness in the aroma; very lagery in the aroma and basic, but not bad. Just nothing really remarkable to note; perhaps some faint malt sweetness. Flavor is a bit spiced to me, but very muted overall. Earthy and a touch bready. Some herbal hop bitterness. Actually not a bad tasting brew, especially given the style category. Thinner MF, and a bit slick. Softer carbonation. Just OK drinking, not too interesting, but nothing off either. Certainly above average for the norm in the range and especially for Switzerland.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2006
33cl bottle brought back from a trip to Switzerland by my sister. - Pours dark golden hazy with a short white foamy head. Aromas of light malts, bread, and floral hops. Flavor is malty with lots of bread notes and a touch of caramel but also plenty of floral hop flavor as well. Palate is medium bodied and a touch on the grainy side. Not bad for a pale lager actually.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Flip-top bottle best before Oct 27, 2009 shared with funkybrewster. Pours a murky dull pinkish gray orange swirl with a thin airy soap-bubble looking white head, uuuuugly. Aroma of rauchbier, smokey, salty, oily, potpourri, vanilla and honey. Flavor of salty wax, floral, cardboard, nutty, soapy, ok Im done...

jerohen (2260) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2008
Bottled (swingtop bottle). Cloudy orange-brown coloured, white head. Aroma of wheat, like a hefeweizen with notes of banana, combined with some caramel malts, really nice. In flavour the wheat is more on the background, and its the caramel malts that together with the hops that dominate. Biter finish. Pleasant brew.

Dorqui (2233) - Brescia, ITALY - JAN 20, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,33L. Unusually hazy and opaque color, rather dark and veiled with medium fizz. Compact and adherent head in superficial. Spiced and aged scent with aromas of straw, mint, fresh grass and malty. Prickly and mellow taste, medium bitter but in prominence on the end.

Tranquillity (2221) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2009
Bottled. Dark-orange, thick white head. The aroma is fruity and malty, caramel and even marshmallow. Good stuff! Nothing special in the taste, but its extremely well balanced and all individual parts are good. Theres malt with good hops towards the end, with a sweeter finish.

Bland style with little hop contribution, but I did pick up some oak barrel taste. Amber color with little head.
