Gebraut nach alter englischer Bauermethode, kräftige, dunkelbraune Farbe. Im Antrunk an Waldbeeren erinnernd, entfaltet sich im Abgang der Ale-typische bitter-herbe Geschmack. Das Sieger-Bier 2005, (Kategorie Spezialbiere) ein Muss als Abrundung gelugener Abende..

Saeglopur (434) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle, 2013 version. I will leave out a detailed rating and just enjoy this beer as it is in respect of Gerhard Forstner who passed away today. Many thanks for pioneering Austrian craft beer, your achievement will be remembered. Prost!

Erasmus_ro (1475) - Alabama, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle, ABV 6,6%. Pours a dark auburn brown with a good-sized, fairly dark beige head. Aroma is grainy, light rye, some grass. Reminds one of a pilsner. Taste is rye, dark maltiness, light spiciness. Grain and grass. Medium with fairly weak carbonation. Pretty nice overall, though perhaps a bit more is expected with this ABV. Goes well with food.

Leighton (11855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2011
Bottle for breakfast in a Bratislava hotel. ABV of 6.6%. Pours a slightly foggy brown with a sturdy, creamy tan head. Strong toasted dark bread aroma, some burnt sugars, earth and light grass. Flavor is somewhat odd. There is a slight tanginess here, some dry toast, light sugar, grass, tree bark. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Hints of beef. Still touches of tang in the finish, and a somewhat faded malt character. I’m guessing this beer isn’t in top condition.
