from beerangel.de - clear golden-bronze colour with a solid white foam; aroma of corn and paperboard, some lactic tones; nice lace, slightly oily and medium-bodied, sweet and with some tartness; quite rough bitterness before a corny, paper-like finish scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Light gold, tall strong fluffy head. Little caramel to the nose, more damp cardboard though. Very solid! Firm foundation yet moderately light bodied and clean on the palate. Could not stop sipping this beer. Gently sweet throughout with underlying shortbread. jfb (6635) - GERMANY - JUL 15, 2009

Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 12, 2009
Pours clear golden with a nice, creamy, off-white head. Fine, light lacings. Aroma is rather grainy, light hay and some sweet, unfermented malts. Light carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is light sugary, bready malts. The finish is fine and hoppy with grass, hay and a little pine. Still too sweet, though.
Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of Quack-Duck. It pours a beautiful clear deep copper beer with a creamy persistent off white head. Earthy aroma of raisin, caramel, bread crust, barnyard and dog food pellets which is accentuated by the malt. Sweet malty taste. Medium bodied. A lot of raisins and caramel showing up. Low carbonation and bitterness. Nice lacework. Faintly astringent, especially on the swallow. Surprisingly dry finish which is reminiscent of raisin, caramel and a huge amount of bread crust. This beer really tastes artisanal. Thanks a lot Quack-Duck! TBone (18225) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2009
Bottled (Beerangel, BB 02/2010).
Pale copper color, good off-white head, lace. Metal, ash, clover, straw, grass and caramel in the nose - when warms up: barnyard. Crispish carbonation. Ryeish-caramelly malty, vague grassy-flowery hops. Only some metal. Bitter-harsh aftertaste. Biscuity. Unorthodox German Vienna (closer to hoppy Märzen), but not the most balanced one. Finish is also a bit thin for 5.5% German brew. Skinnyviking (9720) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2009
