Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2008
Darker golden coloured, medium sized white head that went away slowly, honeyish grainy nose with touch of cardboard. The taste is almost the same- malty, honeyish grainy and cardboardy with touch of caramel hops in the finish. Like Asam Bock expected better beer.
On tap in the Klosterschenke 21 Jun 07. Dark brown coloured. A fluffy white head. Sweet fruity aroma with a soft sweet flavor. Roasted malty aftertaste with a sweet, fruity finish. A bit too carbonated.
jonas (8280) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - APR 27, 2003
Malty aroma with a bit peppery hops.
Deep red golden, thick creamy head.
Malt base, some burned colormalts and slight hop flowers.
Full mouthfeel, a bit sticky aftertaste. Idiosynkrasie (8204) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear dark golden to amber colour with average, firm, frothy, white head. Grassy hop aroma with grainy notes, a toasty touch. Taste is initially slightly floral and grassy hoppy, pointing toward a metallic touch, some grainy notes, later a caramel malty basis with bread and toasty notes shines through. Could be characterised as bottom-fermented Bitter in a way. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 28, 2003
dark golden. burnt paper aroma with honey. tastes of candied ants, rotten peach and milka chocolate with raisins. quite salty. interesting Sigmund (8024) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2007
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. ABV is 5.5. Deep golden colour, large head. Nice aroma for a golden lager: fruity and floral hops with moderate malts. The flavour is fairly malty and well rounded, some sweetness, balanced by moderate hops. Soft mouthfeel. A decent lager, well above average. BlackHaddock (7957) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
From BA: where it was classed as an O’fest style Beer. Brown 0.5 litre bottle, BBD is smudged so not sure if the beer was in date or not when drank in Jan 2009..
Poured into a pint pot (glass).
Dull, deep old gold colour, typical of an O’fest bier. Good white foaming head sat on top.
Cut grass is the first aroma followed by bad Body Odour, then I wanted to smell hops, yeast and malts. Sadly I didn’t although a none discript beery aroma did appear.
This beer (according to the label) won some accolade at the Beer world Cup in San Diego 2008. whoever voted for it has different taste buds to me.
The richness I remember from O’fest biers and the depth of flavours were not present in this version. A weak attempt of the style in my opinion. Dry and bland throughout.
