Raisins, caramel, herbs. Roasty flavour with a long, bitter finish. More than satisfying for the price.

koshack (1249) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Bursztynowe, klarowne. Piana kremowa, drobna. W aromacie słodowe, z wyczuwalnym chmielem. W smaku słodkawe, ale złamane nutą kwaskowości. Lekko owocowe. Nie do końca przypomina Vienna Lagera. Bardziej idzie w stronę alta. Przeciętne, pijalne.

bierkoning (12182) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle. Golden color. Soft maltaroma. Malty intensely breasy flavor with a hint of grass. Sweetish finish. Somewhat onedimensional, but OK.

stevoj (3771) - 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.

allmyvinyl (9226) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2014
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear dark amber, no head. Aromas of candy sugar, nuts, light spice. Taste is more of the same, but sweet, and with a sticky finish. Not so great.

BlackHaddock (6067) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
33cl Bottle, poured for me at the St Pauli (Reeperbahn) Christmas Market on 11th Dec 2014. Red or brown body, difficult to gauge in the dark with flashing decorations as your only light source. The head did not hang around long enough for me to discern it’s hue. The nose was weak, the beer very cold and highly carbonated, some fizzy fruitiness and a few roasted malty hints in both the aroma and taste, dry finish and a decent blend of flavours with the malt content overriding the hops all the way through the beer.

Rich amber/cider color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of toasted malt, hay/hops, & some caramel; Flavor of slight sweet malt, hops, caramel, and some nuts; Not too bad.
