Braudog (6379) - Yorktown, 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)

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 (5187) - 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.

MartinT (9411) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (17721) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Sehr milder, etwas cremiger Antrunk, sehr wenig malzig, eine aufkommende Bananenote scheint fast unpassend. Zum Ende malziger, leider bleibt die hefige Bananigkeit erhalten. Spritziges Bier, das sich weder in die helle noch in die dunkle Richtung entscheiden kann – oder will! 10/8/9/9//9

RexTalionis (3522) - FINLAND - APR 25, 2011
Vom Fass at Hausbrauerei Altstadthof in Nürnberg. Poured hazy copper in color with tan head. Fruity, malty and nutty in aroma, very pleasant. Nutty taste with some hoppy notes in the background. Smooth and very nice nuttyness in taste.
