MoritzF (9851) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2012
(swing top bottle) Clear, bright amber colour with a big and slightly beige foamy head. Slightly draffy caramel-malty aroma with notes of herbal and slightly grassy hops, accompanied by traces of Cantuccini cookies in the background. Bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malty and slightly bready taste with rounded herbal hoppy notes; dry bitter-sweet finish with herbal hops and a tinge of cara-malt in the aftertaste. Interesting Vienna-Pilsener hybrid. 17.II.12 Arve_Christian (5114) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 3, 2014

thellgren (1030) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2017
0.5 l bottle @ some place in the center of Bochum (April 23, 2017). Appearance is obviously amber, clear and with a nice head. Taste is quite malty and sweetish. Similar to Altbier but without the floral overtones of the top fermenting yeast. Bottom fermented beers are not very complicated. Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2012

bierkoning (13297) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2013
Pours a light amber colored beer with a high, fine and white head. It smells sweet, malty, slightly caramelly with some brown sugar. Starts malty-sweet with lots of caramel and toffee. The middle part is sugary-sweet with a lot of maltiness, caramel and some bread / cereals. Goes into a bready-sweet finish with a lot of caramel malts! Good beer, but way too sweet!
Swing top bottel. Grassy, caramelly notes in the aroma. Grassy hopbitter flavor with toffee and caramel. Caramelly bitter aftertaste. Hint of roast. Well balanced and well made.
