MichaelAwesome (2993) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2013
Ein schön klassisches Vienna ohne Schmickschnack. Etwas Karamell, ein paar Nüsse und dazu noch eine erstaunliche Süffigkeit. Etwas derber als erwartet und ein leicht bitterer Abgang, doch alles in allem durchaus in Ordnung.

Embrouille (2803) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 3, 2007
A golden-orange beer with a nice white head. The aroma is malty with hints of caramel. A rather weak nose. The taste is nicely bready and dry and has a good hop character. Some caramel, brown sugar and butter in the taste. Medium bodied. The finish is dry. A rather drinkable beer without being special, this brew lacks in strength.

Amber with a medium sized lasting head. Aroma is of sweet malt and caramel. Flavour is very sweet with a sugary roasted malt finish. A bit too sweet for me

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Das Bier im Glas hat einen schönen Rotstich. Das Aroma ist sehr fein würzig und malzig. Zum Ende hin schmeckts etwas alkoholisch, aber es wird nicht zu penetrant. Alles in allem ein recht gut trinkbares Amber Bier aus der Schweiz...

Bottle at Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich, December 2012. Pours clear bubbly amber with white head. Grain, vegetable soup aroma, Unexciting bitter taste. Light body, fizzy, short finish.
