rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2004
Tap, at the brewpub. Bronze with reddish tinge, moderate lasting white head and gentle condition. Fruity caramel, toffee and burnt crystal malt aromas, more caramel in the mouth with a gentle noble hoppiness developing with time. Toffee sweet initially in finish but with hop flavour coming out at the end.

Indutiomarus (114) - Idar-Oberstein, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2009
Not the best beer at Altstadt but still a good one. As others have said give this a taste but the others are much better.

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

Erasmus_ro (1312) - Alabama, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Tap @ brewpub 01/02/13. Pours a roséish dark red with a thick, beige head. Aroma is fruity, bready, dark malty. Taste is caramel, fruity, light apple, light yeast. Palate is light. Definitely meant to be had with food.

Moravius (456) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2013
Vom Faß im Altstadthof, Nürnberg. - Schönes Kupferrot. Antrunk leicht malzig (Röstmalz), voll milder unfiltrierter Kellerbieraromen. Anklänge von Waldbeeren (Brombeere). Milder Hopfen; dezenter bitterer Nachtrunk. - Mild, weich und süffig. Könnte eine deutliche Portion mehr Hopfen vertragen. Auch in Literflaschen zum Mitnehmen erhältlich, leider stark überteuert.

MartinT (7797) - 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.

EithCubes (4838) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Tap in Nürnberg, dark red body, chestnutty with a lacing tan head. Malty sweet taste with lots of toffee, here are some nice juniper/heather notes to my taste, light hoppiness. My favorite of those available on my visit, though the ’Schwarz’ was probably its only competition.
