Bottle from Getranke Mekka, Nurnberg. Pours is dark amber with big tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, hazelnuts, floral, barnyard aromas. Taste is light sweet, light bitter, hazelnuts on tongue. Light body, thin to creamy texture, light roasty finish. Good one.

Very solid lager. Balanced maltiness and full bodied. Good for drinking a lot in a row. Surprisingly good.

EithCubes (5633) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2006
Ahh, memories from two years ago...Bottle. Aroma of nut, dark malts, and dark chocolate with a little barnyark funk / veggies...touch of bread and popcorn. Dark nut brown / dark copper pour with a sticky, lacing beige head. Creamy crisp taste with all of the above included. Toasted nutty choco veggie. Light flowery sweetness balanced by hops. Mild, with light end-bitterness. Nice and malty, nice and rural.

jfb (5567) - Freising, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2008
(bottle) clear dark mahogany colour with a slightly off-white bubbly head. aroma has strong hints of roasted malts, hazelnut, coffee and a light hop fragrance. the dominant flavour is roasted coffee, with hazelnut, chocolate and malt touches and a delicate hop spiciness. mild carbonation, light to medium body. a distinct and flavourful lager.

ippopotamo36 (1771) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 6, 2015
o,50 bottle purchased in Franconia-Germany and consumed in Kosovo. Mortlach, beviiiiiiii. Pours a very brownish-dark amber color with a medium ivory foam with retention on the surface. Nose: burnt bread crust, a far too wired farmhouse note (mmmmh), a hint of liquor (Ballantines, something sweet or orangey). Mouth: amber-vienna malts orientation forward, easy drinking anyway, sweet character immediately cut by a bitter finish. Not that refined, a bit confusing although highly enjoyable.

JoeinDahlem (1456) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2015
Dark amber beer poured from bottle into a Steinkrug, rustic buttery whiffs of diacetyl immediately apparent. Lightly sweet with a firm brace of herbal bitterness, some slickness adding to the perception of a rich, lightly carameled malt character underneath. Idiosyncratic, like so many of the village beers of this region.

bartlebier (3499) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2016
50cl bb06/2016, as simply Krug-Bräu Lager. Surprisingly dark amber pour. Rustic farmhouse aroma, stewed/smoked apples and buckwheat porridge. Slightly smoky, going on Schlenkerla Lager in taste, with some dairy creaminess and that distinct juniper-like spelty edge in the malt base. Plenty of character, easy drinking. Seems like Krug-Bräu anticipates/overlaps with Czech brewing techniques and does not shy away from painting with a buttery brush.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2012
#472 Kastanienbraun mit feinporigem Schaum. Etwas lieblich-malzig im Geruch. Der Antrunk ist sehr weich und wiederum lieblich-malzig. Der Abgang ist nicht so gut ausgeprägt wie beim Festbier aus gleichem Hause. Insgesamt ein braunes Lager, dass sich schnörkellos gut trinken lässt, ohne bleibenden Eindruck zu hinterlassen. Test vom 13.11.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,9,12,9,9,10 - 10,15
