Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2008

DuffMan (10139) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle. Clear toffee amber, medium off-white head. Initial aroma made me think of toast with maple spread. Nice toast & toffee flavour, medium bodied, nicely hopped finish of medium bitterness. Tasty, and a nice take on the style (even if they dont use Munich malt).

mkel07 (5742) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2010
500ml bottle. Rich golden orange colour, sunset in a glass with a solid level dirty white head and strong caramel malt aromas that beckon and invite you in. Well balanced malty flavour that hits all parts of the mouth. Robust and moresish . A good effort.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle, poured a dark copper with a large foamy light brown head. Sweet caramal malt aroma, a little oaky. A very sweet palate, the toasted malt exhibiting both caramal and nutty flavours. The hops increase in the finish, with a little bit of spice and bitterness. A pretty well put together Vienna Lager.

Tap. Nice aromas of apple and nuts. Taste is sweet, with average duration. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Yellow, with a frothy white head.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 13, 2011
Ive had this beer a couple of times before, but never rated it. Im sorry. This is me trying to be a better person. Ive always enjoyed that particular authentic marmitey Germanic yeast aroma that gives warm buttered toast and tangerine citrus. Its intriguing and an aoma I would be quite happy to have as the last thing I ever smell. The colour is a gorgeous amber that lets off a rocky, fluffy white head. The fist flavours are al mandarin, tangerine and pink grapefruit and then soter tones of fresh bread and roasted hazelnuts. For all intents, this is quite a simple beer, but of a style that you dont see terribly much of here in New Zealand. A thoroughly enjoyable drop made more enjoyable by its rarity.

floydian1 (1448) - FNQ, Australia, - FEB 10, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours bronzed amber with a loose off white head. Nose of toasted sweet malts with distinct marmalade notes. Nice clean palate with similar flavours and a mild hop bitterness. Easy drinking. A good example of the style.
