(translated) Ludwig Bayer has since 1878 been in Mack’s portfolio, and is a beer type that originates from Bayern in Germany. With considerable elements of dark malt types Ludwig Bayer is our darkest beer with a delightful dark color. This is a copious beer with a fine sweetness. With a mild element of hops Ludwig Bayer gets a light bitterness in the end. Enjoy this beer by 8 - 10 degrees C, preferably from a glass. Ludwig Bayer can be enjoyed with medium strong meat dishes or as a thirst extinguisher with good friends.

Editor’s note: Formerly known as Mack Ludwig Premium Bayer

On tap. (Ølhallen, Tromsø). Deep brown colour. Creamy head lasting a couple of minutes. Roasted malt dominates the aroma. A sweet, bitter aftertaste.

Bottle. Brown mahogany colour. Murky brown malty, sort of cardboardy. Feels like its been through a (brown) coffee filter. Some syrupy sweets on nose. Light bodied, bland. Dark bread. Murk.

Holmen1 (4878) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2013
0,33 flaske i gapahuken til Lillegutt: nå begynner det å likne noe, etter Haakon var dette ytterligere et steg fremover, mer malt-og ettersmak. Lav score på utseende og smak da det i likkhet med Arctic og Haakon blir flatt på no time. Av ren lokalpatriotisme skulle jeg gjerne ratet det høyere, men desverre.

visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 13, 2014
50cl can from Meny Bjølsen. Pours clear copper with a small, off-white head. Malty aroma with notes of dried fruits, caramel and hints of roast and hops. Fairly sweet and malty with just a light bitterness in the finish. Too sweet for my taste, but fair enough.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 22, 2007
Bottle. Dark amber. Ring of foam sticks to the glass. This one is very close to their "klasse D" Christmas seasonal: Caramel and toasted malt aroma, with a kind of awkward sweet taste. Nice malty/sweet finish. Average.
