Bottled@random pub, Saarbrücken. So with laiti in bed due to not feeling well, I decided to head for some food, and on the way back to the hotel I decided to pop into one of the Karlsberg places. This one was full with suspicious drunks, whom later became quite chatty for a foreigner who had the guts to enter "their" bar. The drunks were kinda amazed someone would travel and even drink different beers, when the ur-pils by Karlsberg is so good. Anyhow paying a round got everybody happy, and in return during their rounds I got a different beer every time. Deep golden colour, small white head. Aroma is bready, alcoholic, some toffeeish notes with mild sweet maltiness to it. Flavour is wood, herbs, some sweet malts, mild grains and slight metallic notes to it.

Koelschtrinker (17288) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Malziger, schnell dunkler werdender Antrunk. Das Malz beinhaltet darin eine trockene, wenig intensive Alkoholnuance, die mit der Zeit nachlässt und zum Ende kaum eine Rolle spielt. Zudem weist das Malz ab dem Mittelteil eine leichte Kräuternote auf, auch diese wird zum Ende geringer, so wie auch das Malz. Noch innerhalb des Malzes kommt im Abgang eine leichte Säuerlichkeit auf, zudem eine süßliche Würzigkeit, die aber nicht übermäßig intensiv ist. Netter, recht süffiger Bock, der für 6,5% mild daherkommt. 11/9/8/8/7/8

Bottle from trade with beerhunter111 - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep dark brown colour with low head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of rum raisins and malt. Taste of raisins, malt, honey, rum, mild hops, woods and apples. Very nice to drink, expected it worse and not that quaffable.

Ein dunkler, recht milder Bock mit ordentlich Malz und Nüssen. Recht simpel zu trinken, recht leicht, nur im Abgang leicht muffig. Nicht schlecht.
