shrubber85 (6978) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle. Sweet toffee malt and grassy hops aroma. Clear amber color with large head. Sweet toffee malt flavor with a light hops finish. Decent beer but pretty average - nothing to make it stand out.

BeerViking (2084) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2013
Bottle, pours amber-brown with a big fluffy but fast-settling head. An amber lager with that burnt caramel note that seems to be traditional with many (thought not all) German winterbiers now, the nose has toffee and faint hints of peach, the body is too gassy but otherwise farly full, with toffee malt notes, that burnt edge and a light but noticeable hoppy bitterness. Like a sweet and roasty bottled English bitter, unsophisticated but quaffable.

DanielBrown (3626) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2003
Bottle, at the Frankfurt Xmas Pub, Birmingham. Copper colour, with a loose, long lasting head. Quite a metallic flavour to this one, with a fast-fading dry aftertaste, and a smoothish watery beginning. This is not the most outstanding beer in the world, it's a little bit bland, ending up somewhere in between a Vienna, a Oktoberfest, and a Pils.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2008
(bottle) Clear, amber colour with a fluffy light-beige and lacey foamy head. Slightly dusty, sweet toast- and cara-malty nose with a shy spicy hoppy touch. Sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Toast-malty, slightly caramelly taste with notes of marzipan; sweet and slightly bitter, toasty malty finish, also pretty short. Rather average but pretty drinkable (23.02.08).

pivnizub (8576) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2008
Bottle:Toasted-malty nose with traces of pale malt and grassy hops; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; discreet fruitiness in the pale-malty, but also light sweet and toasted finish. A decent one........
