TAR (2494) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2014 Draught at Brauerei Gasthof Reichold in May 2013 and from fresh bottles over the years: Burnished golden. Quick, broken white foam. Very delicate but clean aromas of breadcrust, wood-root-spice hops, earth- and pecan-tinged malt, and candyish yeast. Tight carbonation. Well-bodied. Opens with a medley of spicy hops and succulent nectar. Faint breadcrust sharpness beautifully offsets the more pillowy and intricate malt aspects. Just enough minerals to coarsen the slippery body. Cleanly extracted honey-soaked malt drips with juices and a vibrant albeit understated richness. Finishes with Spalter-derived lemon candy suggestions and dabs of sweet nectar and refined hay dust textures. A fairly simple and uncomplicated Franconian lagerbier, but what it lacks in character it makes up for it with nice balance and cleanness. Fun little quaffer.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2013
Goldgelbes Lager mit feinporigem Schaum. Blumig malziges Aroma. Im Geschmack malzig-süß, verhaltene Würze. Hopfen ist so gut wie nicht vorhanden. Langweiliges und fades Lager.

3fourths (8023) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2013
bottle. light amber body with a small white head. faint aroma of crunchy cereals, toast, dry mix dog food, browned apple esters and minor hints of nut oils. minerality is nice but the starchiness is not; frothy carbonation and medium acid wash the tongue. finish of mild almond and cooked corn kernels with some light sulfur and burnt caramel showing through in the finish. overall a pretty simple and basic beer without much intrigue.

Ernest (6218) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is light yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, pastry), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a hint of egg. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Straightforward but very nicely done...clean, toasty, pastry-ish, bright hops, excellent balance, nice texture. Good stuff.

Thank you Norbert Dubowy, for bringing this back from your most recent trip to Germany. Clear medium amber with a large bubbled persistent head and tiny dots of lace. Taste is mild caramel malt that moves politely through the palate to a slightly bitter finish. Beyond that, the malt returns. This is a simple, but interesting drink, possibly created as a good mild sessionable lager. Not big at all, but quite reasonable

EithCubes (4890) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle by 24.11.12. Cellary malt with a dash of citrus and hops above the low-lying caramel. Deep but pale amber-copper body with no head -- sucker vanishes entirely. Very sweet taste, low bitterness with straw/hay and even a lasting wisp of smoke into the aftertaste, some tang and swipes of alcohol and metal. Light-medium body. Tough to finish.

kiwianer (3339) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Relativ dunkle aber noch helle Farbe, die Schaumkrone hält mittelmäßig. Geschmacklich: hopfig, rauchig lecker! dazu etwas süß, dies auch im Nachgeschmack. Das Rauchige gefällt mir hier gut, überhaupt ist dieses Bier lecker! Test vom 12.4.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,12,11,13,11,12 - 11,75
