kiwianer (3339) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 8, 2012
On Tap @ the brewpub. The head is medium, the body red. It tastes malty, hoppy, amber, flowery. In the aftertaste a bit bitter. Ok 10/12/13/11/-/12

Marko (3932) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 4, 2012
Draught at the brewpub. This poured a lovely, superb misty amber-red body, with an off white-tan head. The nose is immediately a small letdown though. Soft & malty, with very light notes of hard candy. The taste is unfortunately as I expected it after that... empty. Somewhat sweet, soft. with very light soapy/herbal notes. Ordinary.

Braudog (5742) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. This comes across as just a bit thin. There’s a hint of caramel and toffee, but generally this is not as characterful as the other two we tried. Certainly easy to drink, but I choose the others. (#4381, 11/30/2011)

TaktikMTL (5751) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2011
En fût. Verre de 200 ml dégusté directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel fruité. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée foncée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel légèrement fruité avec une pointe de céréales. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #3852)

Very good beer. The beer is more focus on the malt taste witch I find very good, not so much bitterness... that’s a beer that we can drink all day!

thebeertourist (4814) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Sweet caramel aroma followed by sweet molasses and hints of chocolate. On the sweet side, but drinkable.

Cuso (4556) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 3, 2011
On tap at Brewpub, Nurnberg. Reddish brown color with nice huge beige head. Aroma, full of fruit and caramel. Taste, very fruity, caramel, sweet malt. Nice bittersweet finish. Nice.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Drinkable but underhopped, this reddish lager focuses on its light caramel and toasted bread flavors in a soft, naturally carbonated mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam covers the hazy copper.
-Fruity edges recall plums and pomegranates.
-This might be a different offering for Germany, but it feels like most generic Amber or Red Ales brewed in North America.
-The body is plumper than your average session lager.
-The finish really needs some more hop bitterness to create balance.

On tap at the brewpub.

From tap a the brewpb. Pours hazy red with small tan head. Aroma is dark roasted malty, caramelis and breadish. Sweet crameish, breadish roasted nd slight bitter flavoured. Sweet and bitter finish.
