Had this as Erlkönig Festbier Original - probably the same beer. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts fine malty, spicy, strong, but not alcoholic. Light wheaty notes. Finish dominated by spicy notes, well balanced and quite drinkable. Nice!

Koelschtrinker (10966) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Frischer und leicht herber Antrunk, etwas süßlich werdend. Im Mittelteil hopfiger, etwas würzig, erfrischend. Von allem ist in diesem Bier etwas, wenn auch in milder Mischung, dennoch wirkt es vollmundig. Im Abgang süßlich-herb, weiter erfrischend, getreidig. Angenehm erfrischendes Sommerbier - mit respektablen 6,1%! Test vom 23.4.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,10,11,12,12,11 - 10,75
