Ernest (6160) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), lightly yeasty (dough), with a note of pineapple juice. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation. Honestly, it kind of comes off like an American brewer trying to emulate a German lager. Weird fruit notes and crude malt character. Below average.

deigote (28) - Munich, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 Dark amber, almost red, with a mostly dissapearing head. The aroma is malty caramel with a smoked touch, letting you know that your are going to drink something refreshing. Is indeed refreshing, with again caramel, toffee maltiness, quite simple and straight-forward, but still rounded. Pleasant :).

Grima (2080) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas zeigt sich ein herrlich rötlich leuchtendes, amberfarbenes Bier. Die Krone ist allerdings sehr schnell verschwunden. Es ist prickelnd, mit sehr viel emporsteigendem CO2. Der Geruch ist malzbetont und leicht süßlich. Der Antrunk folgt sehr getreidig, ein wenig süßlich und etwas grasig. Der Abgang ist würzig und sogar leichte Röstnoten sind wahrzunehmen. Sehr geschmacksintensiv. Gefällt mir!
