Ein Bier wie vor 130 Jahren: Mit „Gründer“-Bier erinnert die Bochumer Privatbrauerei Moritz Fiege an die eigene Geschichte und lässt die Anfänge des Unternehmens wieder aufleben. Das „Gründer“ löst das bisherige „Gründer Hell“ ab und stellt damit die lange Tradition der Privatbrauerei noch deutlicher in den Vordergrund. Ihre Premiere feiert die Sorte am 1. Mai

Very light pale malts. Light floralness. Mildly grainy pale malts. Little citric bitteness. Light finish. Fine.

Swing-top bottle, shared at Chriso’s, thanks to Travlr. 5.1%. Pale orange, still, clear, small bubbly white head, light lacing. Aroma is crackers, soft citrus, a little earthy. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is pale barley malts, sugars, more crackers, soft bitterness. A clean, simple, plain helles. Solid but doesn’t set itself apart from the pack.

PapaVillum (841) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2015
0,5 l, flaske, 5,1 % ABV, BB: 29/09/15, købt og nydt på Café Svejk på Smallegade på Frederiksberg, 5. august 2015. Gylden, filtreret og let boblende Dortmunder/Helles med flot hvid skumtop på ungefär 3 cm. Aromaen præget af pilsnermalt og deraf kogte grøntsager og brød. Humlenuancer af græs. Dejlig bitterpræget smag med let sødme. Middel bitterhed, og sødmen fremkommer via den tilsatte Hallertauer-aromahumle, som får øllet i fin balance. Dejlig blød smøragtig mundfølelse. Øllets krop er middel fyldig, og karboneringen på et middel niveau. Konsistensen er glat. Afslutningen er bittersød og mellemlang. Fin læskende tysker og procentpoint for flaskedesign.

ogivlado (7159) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 16, 2015
swing top bottle 500ml. -from Rudat Dortmund. Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head, touch of herbs in the nose. Sweetish malty, quite dry and bitter herbal hoppy with notes of caramel and touch of grass in the finish. Just another average German beer.

bartlebier (3306) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2014
50cl fliptop bb04/2015, merci McTapps. Freshly ground pale grain, fragrant grassy DE hops: this modest, dry, non-sweet Export has more delicate malt nuances (dough, almond) and more green hop quality on offer than many a pils.

Erzengel (7421) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2014
Old Rating from 2008 - Gründer Hell vs. Gründer.
Farbe: Etwas heller als die "alte" Variante, der Schaum ist nicht so stabil.
Geruch: Süßlich und etwas muffiger als beim "alten".
Geschmack: Der Antrunk ist etwas muffig-süffig. Nicht so grasig-herb-frisch wie beim "Gründer Hell". Die Süßlichkeit ist dominierender und die immer noch präsente Herbe tritt etwas in den Hintergrund. Exporttypische Züge. Auf der Zunge verbleibt eine süßlich-leicht herbe Note, wo aber die würzige Süßlichkeit überwiegt.
Ein nettes Helles, aber im direkten Vergleich hat bei mir die "alte" Variante den Vergleich eindeutig gewonnen. --> 10/11/9/10
