3fourths (8344) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2014
From draft at the brewery in Kulmbach. Hazed copper with a fine off-white head. Toasty, bready, cereal-heavy, nutty malt aroma with touches of candy apple amber malt and faint yeast doughiness. Lightly hoppy apricot jam and herbs. Medium body, sweet, rough in the mouth, medium-low bitterness. Acidic and yeasty and dirty in the mouth. Could use longer lagering and probably benefit from a different yeast strain, since it’s showing a strong dusty circus peanut candy dirtiness.

downender (6580) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
On tap at the brewery, 13 August 2014. Slightly hazy copper in colour, with a frothy, off-white head and plenty of fizziness. A malty beer, with more cereal character than sweetness, ending with a decent, bitter finish. Enjoyable.

harrisoni (14353) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Really malty and biscuit y. Tasty though. It has some digestive biscuit. I like it almost like a brown bitter.

kappldav123 (5279) - GERMANY - NOV 7, 2013
1l-bottle bought at the Landbierdealer in Hof. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice creamy head. Starts mild-malty, modest sweet, some hints of caramel. More and more dry, a bit boring-malty. But still okay and quite drinkable. Not bad!

bartlebier (2229) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 26, 2013
1L fresh bottle fill from the cooler@Sagasser Getränkemarkt, Coburg, Jul2013. BB 09.08.2013. This typical dense Franconian Zwickl truly is liquid bread, you can almost chew the rich grainy malts, with even a spiced meaty quality coming in from both the toasted and soggy malts and fresh earthy, peppery hops; rich oily palate: almost like a liquid buttered Schnitzelbrötchen, in fact, and just as filling. Bit odd, seamy and mouthfilling, very characteristic; not exactly refreshing, but still great to sample from the chilled original fliptop on a summer roadtrip through Unterfrankenland/Lower Franconia.

Grzesiek79 (3345) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 4, 2013
Bardzo dobre smaczne i prawie rewelacyjne piwo. Jedno z lepszych kellerbier jakie piłem. Wspaniala nietypowa litrowa butelka i do tego z porcelanowa krachla. Piwo ma bardzo krotki termin przydatnosci. A butelka z tego mikro bowaru restauracyjnego jest kaucjonowana i wynosi az 12zl. Kolor bursztynowo-miedziany wielka piana, wystarczy odrobine wlac piwa a tworzy sie niesamowicie itrwale stoji. Polecam te nietuzinkowe wrazenia kazdemu.

Quack-Duck (8338) - Down South, GERMANY - APR 27, 2012

Koelschtrinker (11518) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Vorwiegend herber Antrunk mit gedämpfter Malznote. Recht getreidig, wenig aromatisch. Die Malzigkeit bleibt versteckt. Frisch, etwas zu mild, ansonsten sind immerhin die Grundaromen gelungen. 10/8/9/9//8
