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.

MartinT (8619) - 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.

thebeertourist (5131) - 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.

EithCubes (5249) - 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.

Spina @ brewpub. Ambrata con schiuma fine è persistente. Molto malto, una punta di affumicato non memorabile

Geiserich (3740) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 7, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Dark yellow, light reddish color. Malty, light sweet flavor with fruity hop notes. Light to medium bitter, dry finish. Fresh, light yeasty, hoppy aroma. Good drinkable but not very special.

downender (7053) - 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.
