Dark amber color, very light co2, white head. I don´t smell anything. The taste is sweet with a good bitter feeling on the palate. Very nice.

(Flasche) Es hat eine sehr dunkle bernsteinerne Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer fast weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma riecht nach Waldhonig oder Harz, süßlich aber eher flüchtig und leicht. Der Geschmack ist etwas komisch, was sich im Nachgeschmack als starkes Lakritze Aroma herausstellt, sonst ist es wie das Aroma, auch recht schlank. Bittere ist kaum vorhanden.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2013
Dunkles Bernstein mit wenig Schaum niedriger Standzeit. Ein malzbetontes Aroma mit komischem Gemüsetouch im Hintergrund, nicht so doll. Süßer Start, etwas nach gebrannter Mandel, driftet dann Astra typisch ab in eine polternde, grobschlächtige Herbe mit leichter Spritigkeit. Muss nicht sein.

Erzengel (2341) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2013
33cl-bottle. malzig-süßlicher Antrunk. Zum Hauptteil wird das Bier weicher, die malzige Note gewinnt Oberhand, den höheren Alkoholgehalt merkt man durch mehr Körper. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, röstmalzig-feinherb. Die Röstmalznote zusammen mit der angenehmen Herbe bleibt noch lange auf der Zunge. --> Ein echt erstaunlich leckeres Winterbier! 12/11/12/12

stevoj (1972) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Nice take on this style (I was expecting another pale lager). Beautiful pour with thick airy head and nice dark amber color. Light malty aroma with slightly stronger, but mellow taste. Light lingering palate. A pleasant surprise.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 17, 2013
from Bier-Bienne - clear dark reddish beer with a poor head retention; gentle toasted maltiness with light spicy and red fruity notes; a good malt backbone, decently tasty, moderate carbonation and sweetness; low bitterness and a quite long spicy and malty finish - interesting
