TEJA (1210) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2014
UPDATED: APR 2, 2014 Ungespundet at Akkurat Stockholm. Nice Clean malty aroma with some nobel Spice hops. Malty taste and Crisp taste. Full bodde and low balanced bitterness that makes if easy to drink in large amounts.

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2014
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy straw colour, firm head. Distinct aroma of spicy hops. Mid dry with medium body and firm, yet soft mouthfeel. Lots of grass and hay, rich bready malt. Long, distinct but balanced bitterness. Exceptionally harmonious and quaffable, with multilayered flavours. World class!

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Draft at the brewery’s pub in Waischenfeld. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with light notes of alcohol, concrete. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Fairly solid...decent hopping and balance. Some concrete/chalk-like character dulls it somewhat, but it’s better than average.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Vom fass at Gastof Heckel in Waischenfeld.
Lightly hazed amber-hued gold with a fine white head.
Toasty and rich with a delicious honey melanoidin flavor.
Light gaminess, mustiness, rustic yeast.
Grassy and herbal and spicy hops with quieter lemon and mint suggestions.
Juicy, malty, sweet, savory, succulent.
Remarkably good from the first sip, at times seems to sit between richer helles and lighter Heller Bock.
Unlike many Franconian helles landbier in character and certainly demanding of attention.
Confirmed by the brewer at 5.5% ABV.

Moravius (276) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2013 Vom Faß bei Heckel, Waischenfeld. - Bernsteinfarben, leicht trüb. Schlanker, herbfruchtiger Antrunk; malzig ohne süß zu sein. Stark gehopft, voll erdiger Hopfenaromen. Schnörkellos, enorm süffig, simpel aber großartig. Könnte ich stundenlang trinken. Gibt es aber leider nur vom Faß am Ende der Welt … - Vorsicht: der Brauereiausschank ist neuerdings von Ostern bis Mitte November am Samstagnachmittag nicht mehr geöffnet, nachdem es zunehmend zu "Exzessen" kam (wahrscheinlich sind alkoholisierte Bierwandergruppen gemeint).

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Hellwürziger, sehr stimmiger Antrunk mit ausgewogenen Hopfennoten. Die Intensität nimmt noch zu und beinhaltet bockige Züge, zusätzlich passend getreidig. Nur leicht klebrig, obwohl die gewisse Süße definitiv vorhanden ist. Herb-würziger Abgang, wir zuvor stimmig, die Süße verschwindet. Sehr gut! 12/11/10/12//11

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2011
From tap at the brewpub. It’s a slightly hazy, warm golden beer with a creamy, white head and a mild, malty aroma. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of malt, caramel, light flower, and the finish is very dry – quite nice.

fonefan (33333) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 18, 2010

Aroma is moderate malty, grain, toasted, sweet malt, toffee, light hoppy, fruity, cheese notes. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, fruity, sweet peel bitter.

Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2009
Cloudy yellow. Thick head. Malty aroma. The taste is malt-accented with light diacetyl. Only a shade of hop dryness in the finish. A 19th century brew to match the 19th century pub.

Beershine (5195) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Draft @ brewpub. Luminescent hazy golden-orange with thick rocky foam that lasts long. Aroma has some sour and diacetyl but is also nice and cerealy. Quaffable, juicy, drinkable palate is thick as well as slick. Delicious grainy flavors. Feels nourishing and has fruity (peach) notes. Butter comes out more as it warms but it is not bothersome.
