Pours a clear golden with a huge white head. Aroma of citrus. Taste of fruits and spice. vanvenlo (1923) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2007
18 Jul 2006 - Light sweet banana, hop and grain aroma. Almost clear golden colour, nioe sheet lacing and ordinary head. Big hoppy spirit and light banana flavour. Tangy hop and banana finish but a bit thin. ogivlado (8316) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 24, 2007
Bottled(750ml). -Clear yellow coloured, huge airy white head. Nice malty, yeasty and hoppy aroma with strong lemon and orange notes and few spicy hints. Also few nice warming alcohol touches but why is this beer in Jackson’s 500 World Beers I really don’t know. Lunkie (1965) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2007
Ripe bananas malt aroma. Clear amber colour with good head and lacing. Smooth malt flavour with spice and bananas. Smooth palate. iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2007
Pale yellow transparant body with a large head and mediocre lacing. Bland aroma, reminded me of crappy pilsners and other cheap pale lagers. Hardly any hops - lots of generic malt though. The taste was light, malty and somewhat dry. Alcohol wasn’t really noticable and stayed on the background. Very thin & watery mouthfeel. Boring brew.

Pours a crystal clear golden color, full of champagne-like effervesence, all sitting beneath an inch or two of nearly white, tightly-packed foam. There’s lacing after each sip, but the lace then slowly slides back down into the glass. A good solid ring of foam remains throughout the glass. Pleasing aroma of sweet fruity white wine - and faint alcohol.
Initially moderately sweet, but that was only the first sip. Every subsequent sip (and there have been several) has been pretty dry, and both the sweet and the dry were delicious. Spicy like a light coriander.
A hint of sweet malt remains in the aftertaste. Has the texture of a dry sparkling mead - softly carbonated but lots of it. Interesting beer, but would have liked more malt character to call it exceptional. Odd - take a small sip, get dry taste. Take a large sip, get a mildly malty sweet taste. mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2007
Pours as a huge white foam with a light yellow liquid eventually appearing underneath. Strong aroma of apple and lemon. Flavour is more apple-like and has a buttery aspect and texture. Lots of alcohol in the finish. May have needed more aging. sayravai (4711) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2007
(Bottled, 0.75l) Clear, paleish golden color with a medium, quite lasting, foamy head. Grassy-hoppy aroma, reminiscent of North-German pilseners, but after a moment, there’s also some European Strong Lager’ish, fruity-alcoholic aroma. Lightly malty, dry-grassy-hoppy, quite alcoholic flavor. Light to medium-bodied, dryish palate with pretty fizzy carbonation - much like sparkling wine. An interesting mix of cheap pilsener from Lidl, strong malt liquour, and dry sparkling wine. Definitely not up to the fancy looks of the bottle in sophistication, but nice to try once. It will also get you drunk fast, and was quite cheap at 3.60 euros for 0.75l in Amsterdam... bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Pours a crystal clear light gold with a medium white head. Aroma for some reason made me think of my grandpa’s Schaefer (go figure). I really did not like the first taste of this at all. Tasted like hoppy alcohol with no malt sweetness. As I had some more sips th eflavor kind of grew on me and I could detect the malt presence better. The alcohol flavor is still quite pronounced. Not at all my type of beer, but johnnydollar (35) - greenville, South Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2006
