Shaney (2427) - 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

Marheb (2298) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - 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 (522) - ITALY - AUG 29, 2014
Alla spina al brewpub. Colore giallo paglierino, aroma di miele, cereale, grano, aromi puliti e nitidi, lager veramente piacevole.

EdKing (1981) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Keg gravity dispense at GBBF 2014. Rubyish orange, insanely large beige head. Nose is sweetish malt, caramel, rye cereal, fruit cake, baked bread, some orange citrous. Taste is very malty, but with some tangy bitterness, toasty grain, fruity, bit boiled sweet though.

Scopey (7406) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Keg at GBBF 2014. It pours clear deep amber with a thick white head. The nose is doughy, brown, grainy, light caramel, cake and fruit cake. The taste is crisp, malt-driven, brown bread, toasted grass and earth with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well rounded and quaffable.

jjsint (918) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Draught at Bedford-Bamberg Beer Festival 2014. Clear reddish brown with relatively little carbonation and almost no head. Fruity sweet caramel scent isn’t particularly strong or complex but is pleasant. Taste starts out a bit jarring - quite sweet with sour and bitter edges before fading to a bitter/sour finish and sweetish almost saccharin aftertaste. Different, but it grows on you. And it doesn’t taste anywhere near 5%.
