BlackForestCO (976) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle from TAR, thanks Jeff! Poured a clear golden-yellow color with a moderate, bubbly white head that faded to a bubbly layer. Sweet cereal aroma with some soft honey, light dough, light minerals, moderately grassy, and some soft apricot fruitiness. Smooth, lightly sweet entry with hints of honey covered cereal and lightly toasted malt offset by a moderate hit of minerals leads into a zesty citrus fruitiness (lemon, orange) leading into a moderately dry, grassy, herbal hoppiness paired with another moderate dash of mineral bitterness that lingers into the finish and a softer citrus fruitiness (orange, apricot), Moderate carbonation, relatively thin body that is offset by the dryness. Still very drinkable, and the minerally elements went a long way towards making this enjoyable for me.

Erzengel (2338) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2014
Vielen Dank an wastl für dieses Bier!
Goldene Farbe, weißer Schaum. Der Antrunk ist malzig-süffig, ganz leicht süßlich. Zum Hauptteil wird das Bier vollmundig-mild, ganz leicht süßlich und weich. Der Nachgeschmack ist mittellang, süffig-malzig.
--> Leckeres, typisch fränkisches helles Lagerbier.

TAR (2436) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle at the brewery, packaged a few days before consumption (November, 2013): Burnished golden. Puffy dirty-white head slowly disperses into a sustained collar. Dull and simple nose of honey-drizzled pecans, piecrust, scones, claylike yeast, faint breadcrust and herbal, licorice-tinged Spalter. Vaguely mineralic and apricot jammy. Light note of concrete and lemon. Fuzzy carbonation. Initially chewy and richly breadcrusty with a subdued melanoidin push. A pronounced pecan sweetness overlays the suggestive haylike grassiness. Malt falls apart and fails to inspire as it lacks texture and vividness, and leans toward husky. Little in the way of minerals, though a spicy, grassy, herbal bitterness, albeit understated, provides some grip which adds a welcomed contrast to the slippery apricotlike esters. Spalt-derived hard lemon candy notes echo the hop sass. Light note of DMS muddles things. Attenuation leaves something to be desired as it finishes with sturdy breadcrust flavors amid a tealike hop flavor and some flabby malt aspects. I was once in love with this beer, which was a mineral bomb, but the immaculate cleanness and captivating mineral character is no longer evident. This is merely a minor step up from ordinary, and even has a note of DMS and concrete that I did not detect in previous bottles, and that limits my enjoyment significantly. The brewer has stated that the water is getting harder and harder, but I don’t know if that’s part of the problem with this once glorious beer or if it’s just another example of unfiltered Franconian lager not performing well from the bottle. The kellerbier vom fass is always delightful. At any rate, these couple of bottles have been a letdown.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2013 Bottle (best before July 2013). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with note of minerals. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately to heavily bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Sadly, the magic is already gone. My first bottle was best-before June, this newer bottle purchased at the brewery is kind of rough, just like the pils and kellerbier. I believe Christian is capable of fantastic beer, but these latest samples are unfortunately plain and a rough-edged/grainy. We found many inconsistent breweries on this trip, and sadly it appears this is one of them. Visit again in the winter and you may find an entirely different quality of product.

10-day old bottle from the brewer. lagered for 8 weeks. ridiculously luscious hallertauer perfumed stone fruit with zesty and peppery spalt spice. soft doughiness and mineral content with frothy, full, lively carbonation, medium-low pale malt sweetness with touches of toasted cereals, superbly clean, delicious and satisfying.

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2012
Bottled (from landbierparadies, found in an old box). Goldeny orange colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is bready malts, some slight toffee herbs and mild diacetylic notes. Flavour is butter scotch along with some grains, grass and mild bready and herbal notes.

TEJA (1261) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2011
Small head and pale color. Some smallmaltiness and sweetness but not much else. Resembles mainstream lager from any large brewery.
