Ein Bier mit besonderem Charakter. Unser Bier des Jahres 2008, das zum Dauerbrenner avanciert ist. Rötlich in der Farbe mit kraftvoller Schaumkrone. Vollmundig im Geschmack, mit malzaromatischer Note und elegant abklingender Bittere.

COMRADEJOSH (318) - 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 (3428) - 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....

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.
