Fisler (408) - Bamberg, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2014
Ordentliches Bier, würzig, malzig, nicht zu komplex. Sehr süffig, aber auch nicht zu spektakulär.

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2014 Draft at the brewery in Kronach. Clear chestnut brown with a white head. Speck smoke character, lightly woody / ashy. Toasty / nutty malt, red apple skins, roasted and oily chestnuts. Munich and dark amber malt with milder Rauch malt. Nose is mostly clean with light mineral touches. Semi-sweet, rich in the mouth with mild smoke character that works well with the medium sweetness. Good savoriness and hints of saltiness. Clean and balanced and flavorful. Much more of a Rauch Maerzen than a Landbier.

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!
Im Glas steht ein helles mahagonie farbenes Bier, das im Gegenlicht schön leuchtet. Der Geruch ist süßlich karamellmalzig und leicht röstig. Der Antrunk erfolgt dann schön röstmalzig und angenehm würzig, dezent karamellig im Hintergrund. Der Abgang ist würzig süßmalzig und wieder mit leichter Karamellnote. Für mich ist das hier ein Dunkles. Gut trinkbar, auch wenn’s stellenweise etwas zu lasch geraten ist, vor allem im Abgang.
