The nose will enjoy pepper and gentle roasting aromas such as cocoa and bitter chocolate. After a crisp initial taste, the malt releases more gentle avours. The texture is dry. A subtle acid kick from the roasting aromas leads to the nale: toffee, toast and cocoa notes gently linger. Dominantly malty, slim, dry.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2016
Bottled. Deep amber colour with a small slightly off-white longlasting head. Aroma is mild coffee, some toasted notes, a bit wood as well as some herbal and floral notes. Flavour is cookies, some sweet malts, mild toffee and toasted notes. A bit on the watery side.

SinH4 (3194) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2016
Tap sampler tray at the Brewpub Hackescher Markt. Hazy dark amber, nearly brown-ish color with small tan head. Aroma is caramel, bready, earthy, a bit nutty. Taste is bready, nutty, a bit sweet, nearly sticky. A bit messy, but quite nice, although I have to say that I generally like Ambers.

The_Osprey (6631) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Keg at Lemke, Berlin. Paired with large sausages. As ’Lemke Original’, 5.4%. Dark orange brown, hazy with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is bready, card, a little flinty. Body is smooth, tingly to spritzy carbonation. Taste is toffee, straw, bread, sugars. Complemented my salty sausage nicely. Good.

bartlebier (3507) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2016
355ml or US-style 12oz Buddel bb31.09/2016 (batch 310316-A), B-D. - Bref: Dry yet fruity caramalts hover between Dunkel and Alt, landing at a Boston Lager-inspired Vienna with satisfaying rounded flavours and high drinkability. - - Mostly bready, toasted malts and caramel in aroma tinged with sweet herbal notes. Smooth, full mouthfeel suffused with lovely dry toffee and toasted malts, less angular than Boston Lager, less hoppy than an Alt - on point for an Amber Lager/Vienna I’d say. Finishes on cocoa powder with a touch of liquorice. Going by earlier raters, this must have been a particularly decent batch? Surprisingly satisfying - well-done, old-school Berlin-Wien-Achse!

Blueshawk (406) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2016
- braune Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - leichte Aromen nach Malz, Toffee und Honig - die Carbonisierung ist eine Spur zu moussierend - genau diese erhöhte Kohlensäure stört im Antrunk sofort - danach gestaltet sich das Ganze mit einer guten Drinkability, aber leider auch mit einem zu schlanken Körper - irgendwie bleibt es bis zum Abgang malzig-süß und undefinierbar Fazit: Trinkbares, aber leider auch eintöniges Lager

mutz (925) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2016
Sample@ Lemke In Berlijn. Donker amberkleurig. Rare geur, wat kartonnig. Smaak is ook kartonnig met vaag wat caramel en mout. Niet zo goed.

FatPhil (14174) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 25, 2016
Tap (Lemke, Berlin)
Deep reddy orange. Sweetcaramelly aroma. Full palate, sweetish slickness. Sweet malty taste - caramelly. Finish caramel and a hint of savoury soy. OK-ish dunkel, but could do with more toastiness and breadiness rather than just sweetness.
