# 3293 ersma: auffällig ist die farbe, erwartet man ein export doch goldgelb. dunkel bernsteinfarben, der schaum ist mittelstabil. der geruch ist entsprechend wenig lagerpappig sondern vielmehr röstmalzig, süßlich, getreidig. der antrunk ist ebenfalls röstmalzig. leichte karamellnoten, gebrannte nüsse und brotigkeit. zur mitte gesellt sich hopfenherbe hinzu. der abgang ist herb bei röstmalzigem grundcharakter. die flasche ist ok. fazit: bei dlg wäre das durchgefallen, aber zum glück sind wir ja offen für neue ansätze. ich würds alledings als klassisches braunes bezeichnen. recht gut gelungen. gut trinkbar. 9,10,9,9,9,9 - 9,15 - 13/5/13

. and then it has the nerve to look like soda pop in the glass. but the nose begins to show promise with rich toasty layers of Munich malt playing with touches of smoke, nuts, seeds and bran. soft and creamy carbonation with pastry dough bounce and sweeter accents of rum, caramel-drizzled shaved almond pastries and nugat and whipped cream coffee cake. very unlike the horrendously unappetizingly browned banana colored label.

EithCubes (5306) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle by 03.10.2012. Some nutty, earthy tones, maybe some chocolate/mocha in the otherwise weak, sweet nose. Dingy ruby-brown body with a rocky, creamy tan head. Taste is sweet, some caramel but much more toasty toffee and earth, nuts. faint fruit. Subtle scratchy bitterness, watery body, fun to take at a high speed.
