COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mit einer tollen Rezeptur, besten Zutaten und rotbraun in der Farbe. Eine ausgesuchte Spezialmalzmischung und der Aromahopfen Saphir führen bei unserem Rotbier zu einem harmonischen, wohltemperierten Gesamteindruck. Und ein Taste, der unsere Braumeister in Euphorie versetzte: Malzaromatisch, mit einem leckeren Hauch von Karamell.

lusikka (7038) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark copper amber colour with a thick white head. Aroma of strong grassy hops and biscuity malts. Rather rich flavour of grassy hops, biscuity malts, strong nuts, herbs and some toffee. Medium bodied, rough mouthfeel and a malty, bitter and nutty finish. Good stuff.

MichaelAwesome (5552) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2013
Nice surprise from ratsherrn as this one is quite unusual fir a vienna with some hops dominating in aroma and taste. Quite good.

EithCubes (5215) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Bottle by 13.03.13. Great nose, really doughy and lightly spicy malt, caramel with burnt bread crusts and even a little pumpernickel, beautiful (and unusual!) dark garnet pour with a rocky tan head. Watery light body with some caramel, fizzy with faint bitterness, but thankfully isn’t all that sweet, and so wins on balance points. There are some dirty bitter burned notes, almost ashy, which come to dominate at the finish and beyond, but the overall impression is a good one.

BeerViking (3099) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
Bottle from the brewery tap, pours a mahogany-red with a fluffy light beige head, grassy hops and caramel on the nose, some initial roastiness in the mouth, then some burnt toffee coming through along with herby grassy dry-bitter hops, finishing with a burnt-bitter edge.

Silvan7 (852) - Samarate, ITALY - MAR 16, 2014
On tap @ altes mädchen ramata carica, velata con schiuma beige, fine e persistente.aroma fruttato, frutti di bosco, lampone. Caramello malto e toffee anche presenti. Gusto dolce abboccato, poco amara, tostata, di nuovo si ritrovano caramello e toffee. Abbastanza corposa, rotonda equilibrata ed armonica.

Nocturne (1134) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Draught at the brewpub. Clear dark copper shade, light brown head. Caramel aroma. Taste has plenty more caramel and is also quite bready. The other thing going on is a spicy anise-like flavour. Maybe not to everyone’s taste, but I definitely appreciated it.

adamnowek (606) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2014
Nice brownish red that matches the label colour. Malty in aroma and taste but not overly dry. Very nice.

McWorta (941) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 15, 2014
Amber-red-brown crystal clear colour with a fading dark white head. On the nose aromas of toast, caramel, currantloaf, bread with a light hint of herbs develops. A brief fizzyness offers a light slick texture and a medium body. Flavours of caramel sweetness juicy bready maltyness with some herbal influences arises. The finish is lasting a while keeping the herb-bread sweetness in balance yet somewhat sticky. Pretty nice.

bartlebier (2533) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2012
UPDATED: APR 22, 2015 Meh - drinkable, but somehow tastes unnecessary. ’d Have to subscribe to one of previous raters’ "caramel sweetish vienna" and have to conclude Ratsherrn is trying to jump the tiny German craft bandwagon with boots too tight and small. Tastes hasty, caramelised metallics with a whiff of nobler hops left in unfiltered. / Rerate 04/2015: picking up more toasted malt character this time round, rounded off by a near-herbal hops. Decent.

McTapps (5554) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2013
Clear ruby colour with steady head and medium to smooth body. Nose of light spicy hops. Taste of light malt, hazelnuts, copper, light spicy hops, pink pepper and toffee. Easy to drink and really quaffable. Nice one.
