Moravius (499) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2014
Vom Faß im Greifenklau-Biergarten, Bamberg. - Bernsteinfarben, klar (soweit im Krug erkennbar). - Nase schwach malzwürzig, ganz leichter Hopfen. - Antrunk leicht malzwürzig, Karamelmalz, kaum süß. Mild rezent, weich und ganz leicht „kreidig“ im Mund, süffig. Im Abgang milder aber nicht zu schwacher hopfenwürziger Hopfen mit zarter fruchtiger Bittere, leicht trocken. - Mild aber nicht dünn, leicht holzig-trocken, schlank und enorm süffig. Ein unspektakuläres, einfach gutes Bier.

imdownthepub (10325) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottled, 500ml from Manger in Bamberg. Pale gold with white head. Thin, malty, largely tasteless beer apart from off flavours through poor storage in the shop. Bad.

Homer321 (1892) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Served in a ceramic mug with a soft white head. A touch of hops in the flavor and a mineral character to the taste. Well balanced with a nice hop presence.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Draught at brew pub in Bamberg several times, but most recently in November 2012, when it was a diacetyl bomb and difficult to finish. Thankfully a walk to the nearby Special keller and the excellent offerings there, restored my appetite for Bamberg’s beers.

BeerViking (2492) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2013
Draught at the brewpub, in a Stein, but dark gold with a thick white head and a malty nose. Body is rich for a helles, lightly spicy and dry and just a bit nutty.

gunnar (5323) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2013
On tap at Greifenklau, Bamberg. Pours in a ceramic mug, big creamy white head. Aroma is grainy. Taste is sweet malty, with spicy and herbal hops at the dry bitter end, not bad.
