digopossobon (389) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 21, 2014
Formou um belo creme denso, levemente acastanhado que se manteve como uma fina camada aps algum tempo. Lquido ambar translcido e efervescente. Bonito. Aroma se destacou a distncia. Malte e caramelo bem caracterizados. Doce. Uma cerveja densa no sabor. Muito forte a caramelizao, mas apesar disso, com bom amargor posterior. Novamente a carbonatao e o alcool aparecem bastante. O retrogosto amargo em boa medida e bastante seco.

Amber colored beer with a clear whites head. Tastes like a nice bread crust with a pleasant sweetness. It leaves a bad aftertaste and it has a watery feeling

No smell, color is dark yellow, not appealing in color. Tastes very simple, now tastes of whiskey, bread, wheat. No aftertaste.

Geiserich (4346) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle: Aroma with malt, grain, caramel, grassy hops. Clear amber color, white head. Flavor is malty, light notes of cookies, honey. Pretty boring. Light bitterness in the end.

330 ml bottle bought at Frstenberg in Tsuen Wan.

Clear amber honey colour; One-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Small sticky lacing with very fizzy carbonation; Aroma of amber malt, with potent whiskey, light smoke, molasses, caramel, musty, light bread and faint grass; Mid to light sweet taste of amber malt, with light smoke, thin liquor, caramel, molasses notes, light earth, dry bread, faint lemon and shades of grassy hops; Close to light body, dry and thin palate; Mouth feel is pretty full amber malt in a rather light body, with strong dry caramel licks like a ESB. Light sweet, some initial liquor and smoky tastes that faded quickly. Quite bready all the way. As empty as typical Amber lager can be. Sigh Hoppiness is faint grass nose, very thin lemon and grassy taste; Bitterness in very low-fi for a very thin and abrupt grassy astringent finish; Dry after taste, quite easy and bready to mouth.

Comments: This one used to be at abv 7.3%? I wish it should been kept that way because without stronger booze - whiskey-like or not - this is just another average Amber Lager. Throw in a bit of smoky peated malt aroma and faint taste isnt enough to make it decent. The musty nose is quite annoying. Better than most macro Amber Lagers, but thats not good enough. Meh!

Pretty terrible really, not sure why they bothered to make it. The one good thing about it i guess is it looks clear.

bottle, thanks baerwaldt - must admit i didnt realise at the time that there was a newer version of this. alas, it resembles the old one - amber, cheap whisky aroma, rough sweaty malt with raw sweetness
