COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AKTIEN Original 1857 ist eine untergärige Bierspezialität mit Charakter – kernig, würzig und frisch zugleich. Seinen Ursprung hat es in den Gründertagen der Brauerei, wo es im Holzfass in den naturgekühlten Kellern der Bayreuther Bierbrauerei in Ruhe bis zur vollen Reife lagern konnte. Dank des Original-Rezeptes von 1857 und des traditionellen Brauverfahrens besitzt AKTIEN Original heute noch diesen einzigartigen Geschmack der guten alten Zeit.

GBZ59 (988) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - APR 20, 2014
500ml bottle. Pokal glass. Golden color, crystal clear appearance. White froth, close crown. Fairly good retention & lacing on sides. Crispy upfront displays grainy, herbal & sweet flavors. Medium to light body. Moderate to medium high carbonation. Dense & velvety mouthfeel with spicy touch. Clean bitterness arises in the middle but maltiness drives into an extended sweet/bitter followed by light estery –pear & apple- aftertaste where slight metallic hues are shown.

Lowenbrau (1736) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 18, 2014

In short: a sweet lager.
Pours very clear pale gold with frothy white head. Some head retention, some lacing. Malty, grassy aromas. Light body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is smooth, sweet, grassy, some diacetils, yeasty profiled. A bit dull and boring.

Erzengel (1939) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2013
Sehr süßlich-süffige Angelegenheit. Im Nachgeschmack muffig-herber werdend. Der Antrunk ist säuerlich-neutral, der Hauptteil auch eher unauffällig. Erst der Nachgeschmack weißt wirklich Geschmacksnuancen auf.
--> Es ist "gut zu trinken", aber nichts Herausragendes!
Test vom 10.3.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,9,12,7,12,8 - 9,20

HermanW (1021) - Coevorden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2013
0,5 liter beugelfles. @thuis. Prima bier wat naar meer smaakt. vooral nadat mijn PK goed schijnt te kunnen worden behandeld.

Malziger Geruch, auch nach Äpfeln. Typgerecht kaum gehopft. Gut eingestellte Restsüße. Die Fruchtigkeit ist fehl am Platz.

Not very special, but a nice refreshing beer to drink if you’re thirsty. More tasty than the usual lager.

erickok (3196) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 26, 2013
Golden bodied and with white foamy head. Very mild aroma, good quality but only very light malty and almost hopless. Taste is better, with light bitterness and pleasant malty mouth feel, but still dimmed to maximise the drinkability I suppose. It’s okay, but disappointing overall for this brewery. (50cl bottle from Rewe supermarket)
