bartlebier (1479) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2012
33cl bottle from local Real. - everything - aroma, colour, taste, mouthfeel - about this beer is watered down in the most bland marcobrew kind of styles: light roast, light caramel, light coffee, some malts, faint hops - and aimed at maximum gulp-, not drink-, ability: picture being at a frat party and somebody watered down a single 33cl bottle of St. Bernardus 12 to serve 6. St. Abbey Coors? Hm, still, all reminiscences of the right flavours are there... Chug, darish winterbeer for the cold months, Astra Arschkalt, chug!

# 3177 ersma: das ist mal wieder typisch astra. prollimage, prollwerbung und prollname. das passt. keine andere brauerei würde auf die idee kommen, einem bier so einen namen zu geben. rötlich-braune farbe mit viel mittelstabilem schaum. der geruch ist röstmalzig und hopfig. spuren von karamell und gebrannten nüssen. der antrunk ist röstmalzig mit karamelltönen. dazu hopfen. recht perlig. die mitte wird herber, ohne an malzigkeit einzubüßen. erst im abgang überwiegt der hopfen. die 0.33-l-knolle kommt mit frostigen und schlichten etiketten daher. nett. fazit: leicht bockige anflüge, aber auch nicht so richtig. was dagegen? eigentlich nicht. aber dafür auch nicht viel. 10,9,8,8,11,8 - 8,50 - 28/11/12

rosenbergh (6472) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2013
330 ml bottle. L132023K. BB 11/2013. From mein-biershop.de.
Clear bronze colour with a small off-white head. Sweetish caramel malty aroma. The flavour is pretty much the same. Quite simple caramel sweet malty Lager. Mild bitterness and lots of toffee sweetness. Nothing original but on the other hand nothing’s wrong with this. What makes this Arschkalt is kind of a mystery to me. Maybe the name is the gimmick... Well, it’s so obvious... I’ll shut up and...

NosirIwont (1938) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle. 5.9%. Best before 01.14. Pours a clear, golden amber with a diminishing white head. Aroma is dry and malty with a light cereal note. Slight wood and cardboard notes as it warms. Malty flavour, slight wood and cardboard notes as it warms here as well.. Finish is malty and a bit grainy with a light alcohol note. Lingering grassy note. Overall okay, but a bit boring. 31.10.13.

Idiosynkrasie (3574) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2012
330ml bottle. Clear amber colour with small to average, frothy, fading, off-white head. Minimally grainy, slightly sweet caramel malty aroma. Taste is moderately sweet caramel malty, dry husky overtones; a bit watery, more a fade out than a finish.

kappldav123 (4700) - GERMANY - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle looks very simple. Beer in the glass deep golden, small head. Starts strong, fine spicy, dry background. A bit moldy. Finish more and more metallically and a bit alcoholic-sharp. Okay.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, dark amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Toast-malty and slightly nutty aroma with perfumed notes of caramel/toffee. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Toasty, if not a bit burnt malty aroma with notes of caramel and a tinge of nuts, hops show up towards the sweet and delicately bitter finish. Has something of a very diluted dark Bock, although not overly exciting. 23.I.13
