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.

on tap at the brewery with one of those renowned nuremberg snags. hard to judge the colour in the ceramic mug but didn´t seem particularly dark. not way tasty but rounded and smooth with some brown sugar and a moderate aluminium finish

Draft. Pours deep amber with a beige head. Sweet malts, lighter fruity notes, and a hint of floral hops. Not bad.

downender (7140) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2007
On tap at the brewpub 3/11/07. Amber with a moderate white head. Malty aroma with some red fruit and orange hops. Flavour was malty with a dry finish. Good, but nothing like as good as the Schwarzbier.

Ernest (6834) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Draught. Head is frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of orange. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Could have been old/soured, maybe an autumn seasonal? Had in November 2003 at the brewpub.
