(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.

Hermod (3635) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle @ Viking line. Brown colored, thin off white head. Cardboard, old bread, toasty aroma. Flavors hard to find, light bready, dusty notes. Watery. Very boring stuff.

jookos (2914) - FINLAND - JAN 31, 2015
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.

wiosna (320) - - OCT 26, 2014
Kastanjanruskea kirkas. Selvästi kevyesti paahteista mallasta, kirpeää tuoksu. Maku vetinen mutta mukavan maltainen ja vähän pähkinäinen.

Caramel, dried fruits and wort in the aroma. Deep copper body with a tan head. Medium sweet and light bitterness. Light body with a average carbonation. Overall a OK Bayer, but nothing more.

Senka (800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 15, 2014
Tick from 7/30/2012. Was delivered freshly from Norway alongside all other pale lager. Quite far away from dunkel. Average and drinkable when cold.

visionthing (3135) - Oslo, NORWAY - 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.

Beertobealive (310) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2014
hort brownish head with malt and wheat aromas. Clear copper body with some metallic taste. Overall decent but probably difficult to have a second one of the same type.

Holmen2 (1436) - NORWAY - APR 8, 2014
Dark copper. Little to no head. Aroma of dark toffee and nuts. Slightly waterish mouthfeel. Taste of caramel, chocolate and dried berries. Short aftertaste.

freretoc (933) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 10, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, une couleur ambrée peu marquée et pas de mousse, grosse odeur de pomme verte, en bouche les notes grillées nous attaquent avec une amertume en fin de bouche. Merci à Will !
