Clear, deep amber appearance with a large, off white head and modest lacing. Sweet, bready, caramel malt aroma. Rich, roasted malt taste with low keyed hoppiness, bittersweet chocolate and toffee. Turns a little bit more bitter, along with a hint of sourness, in the aftertaste. Smooth, medium-to-full bodied, softly carbonated mouthfeel. Lingering, long lasting finish. thewolf (12595) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 30, 2007
Bottle. Pours pale copper with a small white head. Not much aroma - some rye bread. Medium carbonation. Flavour is very malty and sweet. Finishes nice and round - killing off some of the malty sweetness (which is nice!). Grovlam (4247) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 10, 2007

Tried this first at a Bon Vivant tasting, and brought home a 0.5L bottle to enjoy further. This pours with a uniquely amber color for a German brau, dog (ha!), looking American ... kinda like a European tourist wearing white sneakers. Anyway, the aroma ends the illusion, a full-force blast of cookie-maltiness with a sharp sweet tinge at the end. That Teutonicness carries into the flavor, bready, doughy, and sweet ... toffee, butter, and maybe a little green raisin. Pretty sweet for a "Vienna", but this is an enjoyable quaff nonetheless.

Pours a moslty clear with slight haze at first, medium copper with a thin white lasting head and modest carbonation. Aroma is pretty bland, light caramel and toasted malts, and some light spciy hop character. Flavor is on the side of metallicy hops with a mineral palate, light toasty malts, and slightly astringent and bitter in the finish. Borup (14494) - Albertslund, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2007
Bottle. Clear amber golour with a nice off-white head. Aroma and flavour of fruit, malt and hops. DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Bottle from State Line. Pours hazy deep copper with 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of heavy Wheaties dipped in almond, with some toffee and mild spicy hop notes. The palate was medium heft, with flavors of grainy malty Wheaties, some caramelly toffee-like hints, and mild fruit and hop notes. Gets a bit more tart and hoppy as it warms.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2012 Poured from the bottle a semi-cloudy orange/amber color, with a modest foamy head with shorter retention, but decent cling and lacing. The aroma had a malt/barley liquor scent with hints of fruit, perhaps apricot, and also some floral tones, light hops, and hints of yeast and straw. The taste was somewhat bitter with a grainy-malt blend and a sour mix of fruity and floral tones along with a touch of yeast. The beer featured low carbonation with a flat body and a somewhat wet and watery lifeless feel with a subtle alcohol presence and a light, thinnish mouthfeel.
