COMRADEJOSH (259) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Wonderful dark copper color and toasted malt taste. Not overpowering but very flavorful and worth trying if this is not your typical kind of beer. Very different to find a german red beer.

kiwianer (3315) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Die Schaumkrone hält mittelmäßig, trüb und dunkle Farbe. Geschmacklich leicht hopfig, malzig, die malzigkeit ist auch im Nachgeschmack noch vertreten. Fazit: Trinkbar hatte aber mehr erwartet. Test vom 22.5.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,8,8,9,10,8 - 8,35

SirRepsol (158) - Cologne, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2012
from bottle, purchased at mannheim central station. red, slightly hazy colour with a frothy, two-finger head. the aroma is quite fruity, didn’t expect this at all from this beer. heavy malty notes, some earthy hops. chocolate mixed wirth strawberry, wow, it smells like a chocolate bar with strawberry yogurt, hints of vanilla as well. the aroma is really appealing! so let’s give it a taste. medium sweet taste in the beginning, then it turn to a sort of bitterness. fruity, malty flavour, almost as the aroma. light to medium body, quite creamy. yeah, this is a good one! damn, I should have bought more of those than the rather poor pils from the same brewery....

mcdav2154 (436) - GERMANY - DEC 12, 2011
Reddish brown body. White head. Moderate lacing. Smell is sweet smokey malt. Taste is the same with notes of nuts and a mild hoppy finish. Mild carbonation with a thin creamy mouthfeel. good beer.

Hugi (322) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2011
500 ml bottle. Pours rather brown then red (as its name suggests) and a bit hazy. Probably a little hint of redness. Nevertheless it looks quite good because of its big and frothy head. Smells spicy, floral/grass or even a bit roasty. tastes really spicy, a bit roasty too. medium bodied and average carbonization. at the end palatable bitterness but not so much taste of the hops. quite good.

Grima (2033) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUN 24, 2011
The beer in the glass is dark and slightly hazy. The smell is sweet and roasted malty. Starts with lots of roasted malts, slightly sweet, with hints of caramell. The aftertaste is very malty sweet. The further course gets more mild and palatable, the sweet malts grow up, very much!

Koelschtrinker (9994) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Malziger Antrunk, im Mittelteil deutlich würziger werdend. Hier leicht herb, auch dieser Ton wird mit der Zeit stärker, und schokoladig. Prickelnd, mild-aromatisch, im Abgang werden die meisten Aromen milder, hier noch malzig-würzig, trotz der Milde angemessen aromatisch. Die Herbe ist nun hintergründig. Test vom 29.9.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,10,11,11,13,11 - 10,85
