TAR (2441) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Vom fass at the brewery in Nov. 2013: Burnished golden. Dying white foam. Wet paper malt, DMS/cauliflower, stale gummy candy, chalky Sweet Tarts, soggy white bread comprise the horrid nose. Firm carbonation deposits a foamy residue on the tongue. Initially vegetal with a dirty bitterness along with profuse gummy candy and dirty dish rag foulness. Zero definition to the malt and hops, and all that remains is limp, lifeless and papery. Fusel alcohol stings the palate. Flavor is dominated by sugars and vegetables, which stymie all hop development. Notes of wet paint, Elmer’s glue, and taffylike yeast pervade the finish. A complete and utter dumper that’s overladen with impurities. Damn near stomach-curdling, this is that revolting. It truly confounds me that even in the brewing bastion of Franconia, duds like this aren’t that uncommon. Good for a laugh, though!

3fourths (7879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Draft at the brewery in Heiligenstadt. First whiff is tomato, barley vegetable stew, turnip, cauliflower, cracker and metal. All of that comes together to form a sort-of giardiniera smell and flavor, minus any vinegar acidity. Raw, wort-like grainess, a bit sour, very sweet saccharin flavor, fizzy carbonation, body falls apart into a thin finish.

Moravius (400) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2013
Vom Faß im Gasthof Drei Kronen (28.9.2013). - Niedrig gespundet. Fruchtig-bitter gehopft. Kräftiger bitterer Nachtrunk. - Gutes Landbier, aber das Bier vom Heckel hat mir besser geschmeckt.

TEJA (1261) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2011
Draught at Gasthof Drei Kronen. Thinn off-white head. Orange color beer. Big caramell malty taste but only tiny sweetness. The bitterness is small that makes it an easy beer to drink.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Mild kernig-würziger Antrunk mit deutlich nussiger Hopfennote. Diese wird intensiver, der Hopfen kristallisiert sich heraus. Vollmundig, die nussigen Nuancen färben auch aufs Malz ab, das zudem Karamellaromen aufweist. Spritzig, vollmundig, rundum gelungen. Besonders die Intensität des Hopfens überrascht. Zum Ende mild aber bestimmt bitter. 8/12/11/12//11

Draught at the brewpub. Seemingly clear copper colour. Big stable white head. Good caramelly flavour, hint of fine aroma hops. Good soft carbonation.
