TAR (2499) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Draught at the brewpub, Dec. 2013: Clear burnished golden. Broken eggshell foam. Muted nose of apricot, honey-kissed toasted bread, mineral, piecrust, and honeysuckle. Light note of metal. Loose, soft carbonation. Softly malty and grassy with haylike malt and toasted bread flavors. Honeyish, lightly caramelized sugars curtail the softness as they grip the tongue. Malt takes on a limpness akin to damp hay and wet paper as it develops. Subtle waxlike character beneath it all. Flowery suggestions shyly exude amid the apricot fruitiness. Sweetish finish is lined with apricot and honey-drizzled hay and bread. No off notes to speak of, but it sure doesn’t have much to say. A very simple and undemanding Märzen.

harrisoni (13773) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle at Cafe Abseits. Thanks to Gerhard for digging this out from the cellar. Clear gold lasting white head. Pretty tasty festbier. Little bit of meatiness. Bit of orange flavour. Decent

Erzengel (2645) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2014
Slightly brown in the glass, the beer starts malty. Something strange is in the taste. The mainpart is malty, dry, some caramel. The aftertaste is long, malty, dry, slightly sweet. A bit strange, but ok! --> 10/12/9/9

ThirstyBird (1587) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2014
Thanks erzengel for sharing. Pours a clear golden color with a small head. The smell is caramel and fruity. The taste is similar to the smell...not a ton going on. The body is light with average carbonation.

Ernest (6231) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Draft at Grasser. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), with light notes of peach, hint of black tea. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Light, simple, but some pleasant fruity character.

Vom fass at Grasser in Huppendorf.
Amber body, clear with a short white head.
Toffee, sweet breads, honey, red apple skins.
Moderate bitterness, high sweetness, noticeable esters.
Mild off-notes of wet dog hair and chemicals.
Medium body thinning into a watery finish; low acidity / flabby.
A bit boring though the toffee / caramel notes are nice.

Koelschtrinker (10696) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 20, 2011
Hellwürziger Antrunk mit Gerstentönen. Hell bleibend, der Hopfen ist das stärkste Aroma in insgesamt milden Bier. Dabei beinhaltet der Hopfen die zu Beginn genannten Aromen und bietet darüber hinaus angenehme Grasnoten. Leider sind diese ziemlich mild, besonders für ein selbsternanntes Winterbier ist das eher unpassend. Erst zum Ende wird es dann intensiver, vor allem der Hopfen legt zu indem die Grasnote harzig wird, ausgleichend zur zugegeben nicht sehr starken Herbe kommt untertönig eine leichte Süße hinzu. Ein nettes und ausgeglichenes Bier, das eins garantiert nicht ist: Ein Winterbier. 9/10/9/9/11/9
