Rerate
Draught at Prague Beer Museum on June 5, 2011
Hazy copper color, fluffy off-white head. Spicy and acidic scent, a bit sour. Malty but sour rasre, I don’t think this is OK. Thin mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Won’t let this rating push down the previous, since this beer must have gone bad at this place, or else served out of an old keg or similar.
4/4/4/2/7=2.1

3fourths (7799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2011
draft. clear striking rusty orange body with a fluffy and lasting white head. sweet approach turning somewhat thin and flabby with low acid, low bitterness, medium chewiness and noticeable yeast esters (berry, apple, orange). straightforward munich malt toffee and caramel, a bit too chewy and thin and out of balance, finishing with orange esters and caramel. nothing special.

thewolf (10785) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel. Pours a pretty, clear red amber with a smallish fluffy off white head. Aroma has lots of caramel, lightly roasted and a apple scent in the back. Nice, regular Vienna mouthfeel, not too watery nor too full. Malty caramel flavours dominate with a toffee twist as well as a dry roasted hoppy finish.
