   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2014
500ml bottle. Nose is sweet and malty, Munich-type with a little spice and fruit, phenols; pours deep red-brown with a rocky tan head. Taste is tart with very little bitterness, a touch grainy, sweet but not sugary, more cloy from the clove phenols. Light berry, dash of spice, body is full but also somehow watery. A confusing mix, drinkable but not terribly well done (or hasn’t survived the trip well).

Bottle. Cloudy gold color. Large head. Aroma is a tad funky, grains. Taste is grains, hay and cereal. Weel balanced.

16.9 oz bottle pours hazy brown with a tan head. Aroma of caramel malts and bread. Taste is malts, bread and spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thegreenrooster (3299) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Lots of floating things as well. Aroma is some caramel malt with black bread. Flavor is a decent spicy grain with some nuttiness. Finish is thin with more of the dark bread left on the tongue. Decent little beer here. Probably a good example of a taste from the old world of brewing. Now 13 ratings and none from Germany?

Pours deep, cloudy mahogany. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Dark pumpernickel and molasses aromas. Soft with sourdough and pumpernickel upfront turning to dark molasses before the medium length pit fruit finish.

12/30/2013. 500 ml. bottle. Dark brown with a tiny tan head. Almost no carbonation. Malty and some sour and metallic flavors. Far from my favorite beer.

bhensonb (11494) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle from Eureka North Coast Co-op. Pour hazy dark coppery amber with a yellowish tan head. Aroma is either cola or lightly spicy roast malt. Med body. Flavor is rye. Mild spiciness. Certainly not sweet. A bit off dry. Pretty good beer - might be unique.

ContemplateBeer (1580) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 17, 2013
My first Roggenbier! Aroma: Pretty straightforward with rye spiciness, but also some toasted/roasted character that resembles coffee or maybe toasted rye/pumpernickel bread. Appearance: Murky dark copper/brown pour with bubbly tan head. Flavor: Rye/toast/light coffee character with a little lemony character towards the finish (Tettnang?); fruity esters really show up as the beer warms, some apple or pear character. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, long finish. Overall: Interesting drinking experience for sure. Worth a try.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Ar: Rich toasted malt, mineral, peppery crackers. Ap: Deep amber-brown - clear - medium light tan head with good retention, leaves a small but solid cap of foam. T: Some toasted malt, sour bite - acidic background flavor really takes over. P: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation - comes off as sort of flabby and watery. O: A lot of promise in the nose, but this beer has some odd sourness going on, and the palate is really weak and watery.

rubbishystuff (1872) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2013
From WLVL. First true Roggenbier so I have nothing to compare it against. However it was tasty enough to want to try more. Opaque reddish brown. Some of the aroma and flavor of a hefeweizen but much less banana. Rye flavor and aroma. Not very carbonated. Slippery mouth feel. Serving: bottle
