MichaelAwesome (4587) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2014
Recht ordentlich mit ein klein wenig Nuss, etwas Hopfen, einigen Momenten an Gras und Getreide. Recht simpel, dabei süffig. Vollkommen ok.

McTapps (4589) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle from Getränke Kistner in Forchheim. The beer has got a hazy dirty light amber colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and straw. Taste of mild hops, straw, grains, bread, hay and mild fruits. Easy drinkable and refreshing with hints of nuts and dust.

Croûte de pain de seigle frais, une touche poivrée et une bonne amertume herbacée. Excellente buvabilité.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Toasted malts and herbal hops merge within this dryish unfiltered lager.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam laces around the misty dark amber.
-The herbal hop bitterness gets longer and longer with every gulp.
-Toasted malts morph into nut skins after a while.
-This is nicely süffig.

Bottle at the brewery.

mikeyo1 (277) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle @ home. Pours dark copper with a small big-bubbled off white head. Malty and sweet aroma with toffee, plums, grains, spices and hints of licorice, soy and nuts. Smooth (and very low carbonated) mouth feel. Flavor is malty, moderately sweet with toffee, bread, red berries, hints of plums and spices and a balancing metallic bitterness. Overall it has a surprisingly watery taste , as compared to what you expect after smelling it, the aroma is quite intense in comparison. There’s some edgy higher alcohols disturbing in the aroma and in the aftertaste.

bjakk (397) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - JUL 29, 2014
Dark copper colour, with white foam. Dry heath in the aroma with malt. Malt, toffee, with sweet metallic bitterness in the aftertaste. Watery and high in carbon.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Draught half-liter at Franconian Beer Festival Nuremberg, May 2013: Pristine rust with golden hues. Frothy tiny-bubbled white head. Candyish and breadcrust-rich aromas with underlying licorice, hay, unsweetened chocolate and a faint raw-cereal character. Sturdy plum succulence fuses with a luscious chocolate-covered breadcrust maltiness. Perceptible scratch of minerals and a potent wood-root-spice hoppiness finds its way through the brawny malt-laden core. Thick molasses twang boosts the sweetness as does a splash of candied plum. Malt exhibits some delectable hay dust and melanoidin flavors, though looming raisin and medicinal alcohol tarnish some of the refinement. Deep and resonant toastiness yields a burnt pecan dimension which teeters on smoky. Quite intriguing. Closes sugary and slightly limp, with insistent medicine edges and unspent cereals. Bit of a mixed bag for me...couldn’t get into it as much as Mikey. Shows plenty of promise at times with its rich melanoidins, but the malt seems somewhat unrefined and raw at the same time. A few tweaks and I reckon it’d be superb.

kappldav123 (5167) - GERMANY - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle looks very simple but really good. Beer in the glass zippy, darker than exspected, nice head. Starts intense malty, but also a bit moldy and unbalanced. Finish more balanced, still fine spicy. Okay.

Nische (900) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2014
Amber coloured with a moderate, off-white head. Malty aroma with a touch of toffee. More malt flavour with a decent dry finish. Good.

Beerhunter111 (8390) - Hasborn, GERMANY - JAN 29, 2014
Leicht trübes bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch getreidig, hopfig, grasig. Geschmack angenehm herb, grasig.
