The head is ok, the body red-brown. It smells roasty, a bit barley. The taste is malty, flowery, barley, a bit bitter. In the aftertaste barley and a bit bitter. Special and drinkable. 10/10/9/9/10/9

oh6gdx (24330) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2011
Bottled (from bierzwerg.de). Deep copper colour, small off-white head. Aroma is mild toasted nutty notes along with some slight dark fruits and sweet maltyness. Flavour is fruits, some dark malts, mild ashes and some slight burnt wet wooden notes as well. Very pleasant.

brugmanneke (283) - GERMANY - OCT 8, 2011
(bottle) Dark brown colour, big foamy head. Aroma is quite sweet and malty at first. Bready, roasted malts, cocoa, a touch of leather. Initial sweetness is replaced by a certain bitterness. Also, hops come into play. Medium body. Reminds me of Krug Bräu Lager, but more intense and sweeter. Nice!

Hermod (5452) - Vantaa, FINLAND - AUG 9, 2011
50cl bottle from Bierzwerg. Poured cola brown with a thick white head. Weird, mushroomy, leathery and yeasty aroma. Flavor was sweet caramel, earth, yeast and bread. Finish has some strong cocoa with some hops, making it slightly bitter. Quite a weird combination, but the result was quite enjoyable.

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2011
It’s brown-red with a creamy head and the aroma has notes of caramel, dark cookies and hazel-nuts. The flavour is sweet with notes of caramel, light cocoa, citrus, nuts and light chocolate, and the finish is dry. Quite charming.

Koelschtrinker (15588) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Das Bier ist sehr malzbetont, besonders im Abgang kann man die röstmalzigen Aromen gut erschmecken. Dabei ist das Bier unglaublich süffig, obwohl man zum Abgang hin auch alkoholische Noten erahnen kann. Dennoch ein hervorragendes Bier. Test vom 16.6.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 14,13,14,12,13,13 - 13,10
Earlier Rating: 6/12/2011 Total Score: 4
Wässriger (Röst-) Malzantrunk. Dieser Ton festig sich im Mittelteil, die Wässrigkeit nimmt deutlich ab. Das Bier wird langsam würziger und wirkt im Abgang deutlich voluminöser, da die anfängliche Wässrigkeit durch herbe Malztöne ersetzt wurde. Etwas karamellig, zum Ende hin vollmundig. Danke an FaustusI für das Bier. Test vom 23.1.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,13,11,12 - 11,95

hopscotch (10522) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle… February in Franconia (2011)… Clear, dark copper lager with a large, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Fantastic retention and lacing. The mashy, grainy aroma offers notes of mocha and nuts alongside strong suggestions of caramel and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. Well-balanced. Grainy, warm mash flavor – light caramel and chocolate malts and toasted barley. Finishes crisp and hearty yet refreshing. Tastes like an obscure region of Germany that I hope-against-hope to visit one day. Thanks go out to erlangernick and Koelschtrinker for making this this month of Franconian lagers possible!

harrisoni (16564) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2010
500ml bottle from Pigs Ear BF 2010 drunk at home. Deep russet colour with thick ivory head. Decent rich darkish and fruity malts. Very decent beer with good drinkability and very decent fruit throughout. Went well with the sausages and roast veg I had for dinner. Some decent toffee. Decent

TBone (15510) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2010
Bottled (BZ, BB 10/2010)
Deep chestnut brown color, good beige creamy head. Aroma of cocoa, chocolate and grassy hops. Medium-bodied, soft palate. Cocoa powder, grassy mild hops and cardboard in the flavor. Short finish. Interesting, different festbier, although I am not a big fan of this kind of grassy hoppyness.
