340 years of Härtsfelder Brewing Artistry. From the first documented mentioning of a brewhouse in Dunstelkingen in the year 1664 until today, much has changed in the world and at Härtsfeld. But one thing remains uncompromised with us: our love of traditional brewing craft and our efforts to brew a clean, unadulturated beer. For this reason, we brewed this "Besondere" (Special). With special care for a special reason. To your special health!

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2012
It’s warm golden with a creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of butterscotch, malt and hints of flower. The flavor has a moderate sweetness and notes of light butterscotch, malt, and a touch of flower, the finish is slightly dry.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Die Schaumkrone hält recht gut, farblich ist es recht hell. Es riecht malzig süß und leicht hopfig. Geschmacklich ist es sehr süßlich-malzig, dazu im Hintergrund eine hopfig-blumig-herbe note. Im Nachgeschmack wird es herber wobei ein gerstiger Geschmack aufkommt -> gerstig-herb, und das alles mittelmäßig intensiv. Fazit: Trinkbar aber hält sich in Grenzen. Test vom 9.12.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,9,9,8,8,9 - 8,90

Had a slight golden colored appearance with a frothy white head. Not much aroma, possibly a little hoppy.

Geiserich (4122) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 26, 2010
Bottle: Flavor is light malty, no remarkable hop notes or bitterness, only a light dryness in the end. Quite flat.

pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2010
Bottle: Pale greenish-golden, small to medium-sized fluffy white head; sweetish grainy-fruity nose with a musty and "woody" hoppy background; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; light hoppy traces in the almost solid sweet-bitter finish. O.K., drinkable...

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2010
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a with a loose and diminishing frothy white head. Slightly sweet pale malty aroma with shy grainy and woody notes. Bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with an almost crisp carbonation. Pale malty and subtle grainy taste; quite dry, slightly grainy and strawy malty finish with a moderately bitter hoppy finish. Not that special. 09.VI.10

jonas (6786) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2010
Bottle. Pale golden, lacing white layer, champagne bubbles. Fresh leafy nose. Chewy malt base, good grassy, aromatic hops, light honeyish, grassy finish. Solid body, mellow mouthfeel. Well crafted lager, hits all the spots.

The bottle looks simple and a bit boring, the beer in the glass light orange, huge head. Starts sourish, also malty and dry. Finish becomes a bit spicy, but also mushy. Still quite sourish. Nothing special.
