Schlumpfhunter (113) - 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.

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.

Gangstergafje (489) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2016
The beer has a very nice look. The color of the beer is a beautiful reddish brown, close to dark amber. The beer is crystal clear and you can see tiny bubbles rising towards the top. The beer pours a decent amount of rough white foam that collapses quickly. A minimal drape of foam remains on top of the beer, but it kind of fits the beer type. The beer has a nice smell. It is a little malty, and has aromas of roasted barley and licorice. The beer has a typical altbier smell. It has a little sour touch to it. The roast and licorice bitterness are in good balance with both the little sourness and the sweetness of the beer. The taste has the same delicious touch of licorice and roasted barley. The taste is a little less strong than the smell. The balance between sweet, bitter and sour is good. The beer is very nice and matches the deScription on the label perfectly. The beer is jut as I’ve expected.

Fairly terrible. Rusty copper aroma and some other metallic lead kind of vibe. Mash malt. Color appears murky something but can’t tell as I’m drinking from the bottle in the airport. The kellerbier I just had was far superior.
