Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, - NOV 11, 2012
#618 Für ein Lager erstaunlich dunkel geraten: Bräunlich-orange, Bernstein? Im Aroma würziges Malz. Im Antrunk dann sehr liquide. Geschmacklich erinnert es an ein Dunkles, d.h. primär würzig-malzig. Der Abgang hat eine schöne Hopfenherbe aufzuweisen. Kann man gut trinken, ist aber geschmacklich alles andere als wirklich doll. Test vom 26.1.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,10,10,8,9 - 9,25

djoeye (2549) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2015
Look; fawn head and clear amber-golden body. Aroma; mild bread, straw, dust, yogurt, mild caramel. Taste; malts, caramel, grass, fruity grains (can’t figure out which fruit, but it’s fruity anyway) - leading to a dark malty finish with dark bread. Normal texture and carbonation. Feels as premium lager, fruity malty. [50cl brown bottle 5.0%abv BB20-09-2015 T@Ferie2015]

On tap at the brewery. Bready and malty smell and taste. Slightly rough mouthfeel. Nothing special.

Aroma of caramel malts and hops. Clear, amber-orange coloured with a lasting head. Taste is sweet, with some caramel malt and herbal hops. Nice stuff.

KyotoLefty (7874) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 1, 2015
Tap at the brewery. Glowing orange-amber with a tight, fine head. Fruity hop nose, apricots, a bit of caramel, bread, oranges. Malty but dry flavor, very fruity, oranges and stone fruits, caramel. Very smooth ans silky body. Light gas. Not the best in its style, but solid.

Marheb (3284) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 29, 2014
(Bue à la brasserie): Une concoction bien ficelée mais ennuyante. Céréales craquants, sucres timides mais adéquats, aromatique végétale balancée et buvabilité festive.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Draught at the brewpub in Aug. 2014: Crystal-clear polished bronze. Creamy but fragmented eggshell head. Soft malty aromas of poundcake, pecan, Turkish apricot, toast, and breadcrust. Hint of fennel-like Spalt. Loose pinpricks of carbonation. Initially sappy with licorice-tinged hop oils and bracing minerals. Pronounced herbaceous hop sting yields to a forceful marmalade suppleness which adds generous weight to the otherwise lean body. Fresh hay looms amid a suggestive melanoidiny succulence. Malt-driven complexity continues to unravel as deep and refined toast exudes with ample lushness and zero edges. Finishes peppery with a nuanced tobacco leaf sharpness and sassy licorice notes which emerge alongside a grassy pils malt and bouncy pecan punctuation. Perhaps a tad tacky-sweet and a bit flimsy in the mouth, but the balance is appealing and the malt character multidimensional. And while it doesn’t exhibit that evocative Franconian rusticity, it’s still a very respectable lagerbier all the same.

danielecamo (841) - ITALY - AUG 29, 2014
Alla spina al brewpub. Colore giallo paglierino, aroma di miele, cereale, grano, aromi puliti e nitidi, lager veramente piacevole.

Ok, bland
