TAR (2441) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2013
Fresh bottle at Cafe Abseits, in Bamberg Nov. 2012: Polished golden. Creamy, persistent, sticky white head. Light yogurty note accompanies DMS, wet hay, vinegar, stewed apple in the curiously dirty nose. Underlying golden raisin, toasted bread and marmalade. Soft carbonation, flimsy body. Sweetly malty with plenty of toasty Munich, though there is a peculiar marshmallow note and appley twang plaguing the sweet grain, which consequently renders the malt severely dull, lifeless, and flaccid. Sweet cooked corn and other vegetal DMS notes amplify the excessive sweetness and muddled nature. Fusel alcohol in there as well, along with a loathsome pearlike sweetness. Finishes fuzzily malty with wet paper paired with fleeting toast. Nauseating after one gulp. Rife with flaws.

Draft. Poured into a ceramic mug with a white head. Pale malts, light floral and herbal hops. Yeasty throughout, with a clean grainy finish. Solid.

downender (6151) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2012

(draught) pours a hazy golden colour with a very stable frothy white head. aroma of herbal hops and mushrooms, very rustic and buttery. flavour is quite grainy, with notes of herbal hops, straw and light pepper, again lots of barnyard and some butter, with a medium-bitter finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

EithCubes (4724) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Tap in Abseits. Hazy pissy golden with a lacing, rocky bright white head. Great nose, citrus and some vanilla in with sunny malt and light grass, and caramel. Light bitterness, grainy and yeasty with some great pretzel and sourdough. Wooden tones, spicy hop notes, bright malt and lesser caramel. Light body. Juicy.

motelpogo (6304) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 4, 2012
bottled; golden with a promising hint of green; fresh and crisp grass and rockmelon aroma; grainy, simple bitterness; will have to track this down on tap

3fourths (7875) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2011
croc at the brewery. vibrant dry grass nose with pungent noble hops liveliness. nose and flavor of honey cracker malt is enjoyable. smooth and creamy with prickly hop acid and light apple juice flavor, but overall it’s delicious and genuine. the owner’s son trained under Ganstaller at Beck-Brau, and the result is one of the better vollbier’s in the area.

kuphish (380) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle. Pours a 1" foamy, frothy white head. Chunky yeast particulate in suspension. Otherwise clear, golden body. Aroma of dusty yeast, floral & woody hops, along with lightly sweet malt. Smooth, bready pils malt flavor dominates and is supported by some musty, lightly spicy hops. Medium-full body is fairly creamy and lightly carbonated. Sweet up front with a mildly bitter finish. Very easy drinking. Overall a fairly tasty, balanced beer.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Toasted bread and light caramel build a plump body before herbal hops and their bitterness balance out the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A ring of foam dips into the krug.
-The hops took a while to appear; they were able to balance out the finish, but they were strangely shy in the aroma and flavor profile.
-Soft carbonation and agile sugars made for a pleasurable mouthfeel.
-This was a quite drinkable, rustic, perhaps rough lager.

On tap at the brewery gasthof.
