The Etruscan (685) - Tuscany, ITALY - MAR 10, 2002
Orange-amber color. Nice head. Aroma is fruity with a malty and sweet flavour.
Medium-bodied. Not the best French bière de garde. cab (866) - DENMARK - JUL 27, 2008
Bottle.75cl. Lots of malty aroma and taste, and very heavy cloying sweetness, oily feel, lively. bierkoning (13355) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2003
Malty somewhat smoky butterscotch aroma and flavor. Pear and apricot. Bitter, somewhat metallic aftertaste. Dorqui (2258) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 22, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2005 Creamy foam of medium persistence. Auburn color with dark glares. Limpid but little moved. Medium scent with caramel notes. Round but light with sweet notes and little bitter taste. Unusual but valid. CEZ (415) - Milano, ITALY - APR 8, 2003
Red amber, with medium head. Aroma and taste are sweet and malty, with a trace of whisky and caramel. The aftertaste is good and round, just a bit alcoholic. What I don't like is the absence of hops.
ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2005
Dark reddish colour with small off-white head. Sweet and malty nose with notes of apricot and peach. Flavor has some sweetness with hints of caramel. fiulijn (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2003
Hazy light amber color, thin creamy head. Sweet aroma, a bit malty, also in the flavor, but very simple Bière de Garde. leaparsons (10551) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2004
Light nutty brown in colour. Aromas are sweet and syrupy with an essence of something I can't remember...Nevermind, flavours are caramel, fruity malts and that odd French single malt whisky flavour. Artificial tasting but still drinkable. SilkTork (5738) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2006 July, 2006 Raisin sweet orange/amber beer. Some musty notes in a darkish lager style, like a Vienna crossed with a Biere de Garde. Cardboard aroma; metallic and thin. Mildly interesting, but a bit messy aesthetically. Sandalwood. [2.6]DanBerg (59) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2006
Nov, 2006. A full bodied amber lager of little character, quality or charm. Quite drinkable, but minimal hops and too much amber or crystal malt is not to my taste. [2.1]
Second Vienna I got in my whole life. I liked Christoffel Robertus but this one wasn’t that good. The beer has an alcoholic taste even though there’s only 6,4%. I had a big bottle like the one at the picture and I drainpoured the last part because I didn’t like it. The bottle was really cold but when I poured it in the glass, it felt ’warm’ after a couple of minutes already Weird beer.
