Draught@brewpub. Ambery colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some grass, mild saltwatery notes as well as mild diacetylic toffee. Flavour is quite much the same. A quite pleasant vienna, though the saltwatery notes are not the best.

TBone (12992) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2007
Amber color, small off-white head. Barley and lemony hops in the nose. Earthy, woody-grassy hoppy flavor. Notes of mould. Leafy hoppyness in the aftertaste. A bit off-balanced and not my favourite among Altstadthof’s beers.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2009
Hazy, reddish-amber. Vague aroma is toast-accented. Very bland, flat and oily. Hardly anything across the palate at all. Very disappointing.

Koelschtrinker (11048) - 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

imdownthepub (10646) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2008
On tap at Altstadhof Brewpub, Nurnberg. Reddy brown with white head. A malty sweet beer with sweet caramel flavours throughout, very toffeeish and tinny. I did get some kiwi fruit in the close to add a little interest. Not great.

MartinT (8135) - 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.
