Found this beer in Rome at a tourist shop. It's brewed by a contract company: Eschweger Klosterbrauerei. I wrote to Duff to check where all it's sold, they where very tight lipped about it and said it was for trade only in Germany. Now I know I saw it in three different shops in Italy so...I don't know. Almost denying it's very existence anywhere else.
Pours a clear golden color just like all the other pils beers out there.
Smell is faint corn.
Taste kind of grassy and very watery extremely disappointed considering it's a German beer and has legendary in the title. I'm guessing it's brewed more as a joke. Either way I wish they had done more with this, it really isn't very good.
I would drink this again if only to say I'm drinking Duff. It really could be much better and it's 3.50 euro per bottle, not worth it, have a Stella Artois instead.

A 330ml can with a BB of March 2014. ABV is stated as 4.7%. Given to me as a gift a little while back (from Switzerland). It's Duff - how can I resist trying it?
Poured into a pilsner glass. A clear golden colour with faint sediment and medium carbonation. Forms a decent head of white foam that lasts for a few minutes before disappearing. Some lacing. A subtle aroma of light, grainy malt with mild hints of stewed leaves and DMS. Slightly sweet and seriously bland.
Tastes of ultra-light malt with a crisp, dry finish. Notes of weak grain, mild stewed leaves and a twinge of cardboard in the background. Pretty clean, with a delicate bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and tingly, with effervescent carbonation and a watery body. A very subtle aftertaste of light malt and stewed leaves/veg.
Not too much going on here, which I guess was to be expected. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are exceptionally bland and watery. Average body for a mass-produced lager. At least it's clean and inoffensive. Nothing technically wrong with it, but the lack of character makes for a dull drinking experience. No need to hunt it down.

My neighbor and occasional trivia teammate travels for work on an infrequent basis, but he is always on the lookout for new CANs for me in furtherance of The CANQuest (TM). This is one of his recent acquisitions and I am quite excited about it!
I was hanging out in the alleyway with some of my neighbors, including Hank Hill, Boomhauer, Dale and Bill, drinking CANned Lone Star as is our usual wont when Dale mentions that one of his bowling league partners is coming by with beer. I was stunned when the guy's wife, sporting a huge, blue beehive, droped him off! He looked like That Yellow Bastard from "Sin City" and given his prodigious beer intake, I still wonder if he doesn't suffer from jaundice. His name was Homer and he had a huge cooler full of CANs of Duff Beer, which I heard was legendary, but I had never had any for myself. He was cool with allowing me to take one home for a review, especially after I turned him onto a Brewer's Art Ozzy in a CAN. We only ever drink CANs in the alley as the possibility of broken glass is not on in our circle.
I went with an inverted Glug following the Crack and got two-plus fingers of fizzing, foamy eggshell-white head with decent retention. Color was a golden-yellow (SRM = 5) with NE-quality clarity and my other drinking buds, Croesus, Mammon and King Midas were engaged in a fight to try some for themselves. Nose was clean, eliminating the possibility of it being an adjunct lager of any stripe. The nose had a hay field-like scent, intermingling the Noble hops with the malt nicely. Mouthfeel was medium and I got a pleasant, biscuity sweetness in the mouth and on the tongue. This was turning out to be much better than I would have imagined. I thought that it was going to be some crappy novelty but such was not the case, thank goodness. Finish was semi-dry thanks to their having found a good balance with the hops and malt and not allowing the malt to dominate as some examples of the style have, IMHO. I would drink it again, especially if that Homer guy shows up loaded for bear like he did today.

2.28/5 rDev -6.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2
Appearance: It pours a clear straw body with a two-finger head. It looks okay and the retention is better than expected.
Smell: A sweet malt and corn aroma are noticeable. It is missing the floral notes found in a good pilsener. To be honest, there really is not much of a smell to it.
Taste: A sweet malt flavor and the tiniest kick of hops can be detected. Otherwise there is not much to note.
Mouth feel: It is light bodied and watery. There is a slight dryness in the aftertaste but more is desired.
Overall: Like most people, I purchased this beer just for the novelty of it. Surprisingly, it was better than I expected. While a poor example of a German Pilsener, there really is nothing overly offensive about this beer. I was expecting a more medicinal grain alcohol flavor but none of that was apparent. In fact, it was probably one of the most neutral beers I've ever had. I probably would not buy it again but I have certainly had worse.

2.78/5 rDev +13.9%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a billowy white head. The head had very good retention but faded over time to give a medium level of lacing. For the strength of the brew it was quite good.
Smell – The smell was heavy of corn with a lighter caramel aroma mixed in. There is an ever so light earthy aroma mixed in as well, but this is very light.
Taste – The taste matches the nose quite well. Corn and a bit of caramel malt meet the tongue. These flavors last throughout the taste, but are meet at the end by some light earthy flavors.
Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is light to medium in thickness with an average to slightly average level of carbonation.
Overall – Very standard adjunct lager. While it is quite average, the novelty factor makes it a must try for any past of present Simpsons fan.
