TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Fass at the brewery gasthof, May. 2013: Rich amber. Broken head holds a thin ring. Unpolished nose of plastic, wax, plum, and medicinal alcohol. Milder scents of licorice, breadcrust, and a blend of earthy/nutty malt. Soft carbonation. Tad thin. Breadcrust bitterness merges with a plasticlike phenolic spice. Off-putting grapelike sweetness overshadows the unsweetened chocolate and nutty java notes. Plummy acids exaggerate the absence of ripe malt, which causes the colalike sugars to become rampant. Virtually no hop flavor, and zero brightness to quell the tacky residuals. Finishes sugary and scantly hoppy with fuzzy, poorly defined malt. A rather lackluster country lager.

Ernest (6574) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Draft at Hoh. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (malt syrup, grain), with notes of dishrag, rotting fruit. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Horribly dirty tasting and sour. Apparently this is how it always is, based on comments from friends who visited before. Blech.

3fourths (8495) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 croc at the brewery. cloudy chestnut brown with a dense off-white head. spicy and peppery throughout with strong rustic noble hoppiness and medium-strong caramel / toasted grain malt character. medium-high acid, medium-thin body, semi-dry late, toasty and crunchy. light caramel / toffee munich malt late with lighter nut and toast flavors. hearty and very rustic.

re-try in May 2013: gotta say it seems more dirty, fizzy and cola-like than before. grape and apple malt syrup flavors; gravel / concrete mix dirtiness, etc.

MartinT (8396) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Toasted bread and raw caramelized sugars are eventually met by wooden hop bitterness in this rough but drinkable Old-World lager.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the krug until it reveals a cloudy brown brew.
-The soft effervescence makes the sweetness more apparent.
-Those caramelized sugars, reminiscent of molasses at times, appear in the finish as well. Those aren’t clearly extracted malt flavors, to say the least…
-Hops offer herbal flavors too.

On tap at the brewery gasthof.

Koelschtrinker (12147) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Hopfig-karamelliger, eher milder Antrunk. Noch etwas karamelliger werdend, da andere Aromen rar sind, ist dies mit Abstand das Stärkste. Sehr süffig, die Malzigkeit tritt nur zusammen mit der leichten aber unterstützenden Süße auf. Wenig herb. 10/10/9/9//9

Oakes (13270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2009
@ brewpub. Brownish, slightly gold colour. Quite earthy with breadcrust notes. Toasty, some fizzy darker fruit notes. Has a rustic breadcrust character. Maltier than I’d prefer but it’s okay.
