rondphoto (3843) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 20, 2016
bottle @ Kaufland market / Schwaebisch Gmuend Germany --- Clear ambergris color, off-white head, lace streaks. Taste is malt with a light infusion of oak with very light fizz and, then, a trace of hops for the finish. This has some body, but very little flavor. I won’t have another.

eunck (120) - Hamburg, Hamburg, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2016
Can’t complain about the head and the color is a nice clear redbrown. The body is quite light but it’s not watery, rather easily drinkable. A wooden taste is clearly noticeable and very pleasant. I found this a very good option when the alternatives were only standard industry pilseners.

17Beer (195) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 11, 2016
Faint undestinctive aroma. Pours a red clear color with a fast dissipating white head. tastes of light caramel and a short sour edamami note. Balanced but not very assertive. Don’t know altbiers well enough to know if its a good example. Pleasantly drinkable but no wow factor.

berlincrafty (4) - Panketal, Brandenburg, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2016 does not count
Die nicht vorhanden Schaumqualität ruiniert dieses Bier inzwischen total. Geschmacklich auch nicht mehr das Highlight wie noch vor einigen Jahren. Farblich ist es noch schön aber das allein kann dieses Bier auch nicht mehr retten. Das ganze noch zu einem völlig überzogen Preis für diese Qualität.

Schlumpfhunter (128) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2016
Farbe: klares Rotbraun Schaum: fein Nase: Hopfen, Holz, Geschmack: überraschend leichter Körper, klar, Säure dominiert. Ein bisschen was Süßes liegt darunter, im Abgang wieder der Holzgeschmack. Dann mehr bitter als sauer. DieGeschmacksnoten sind alle fein, bisschen Karamell. Sehr gutes eigenständiges Bier.

DwarfeD (2545) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2016
Draught at Fisherman’s, Travemünde. Somewhat hazy amber with a small white soapy head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Subtle sweet and bitter tones. Caramel, malts, red fruits and spices. Nice altbier.

Obergärig?! Amber Ale?! Altbier!!! O.K.mag ja alles sein. Und dann noch Buchenholz!? Hört sich toll an, ist es aber nicht. Schmeckt irgendwie lasch und uninspiriert. Fand ich vor einigen Jahren noch echt toll. Abgefahren!!!!! Trotzdem besser als alle Industrie Pilsener!!!! Das letzte Mal..... heute beim Inder.
