Moravius (481) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2014
Flasche (50 cl) von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Dunkler, rötlicher Bernsteinton, trüb. - In der Nase Karamel, Hefe und milde Frucht. Antrunk mild hefig, verhalten fruchtig (Apfel), gerstig, schwach karamellig, kaum süß. Schwache aber deutliche säuerliche Note. Durchschnittlich rezent, schlank aber nicht dünn. Im Abgang mild würziger Hopfen. Mäßig bis schwach bitterer Nachtrunk. - Etwas zurückhaltendes aber nicht langweiliges, erfrischendes und süffiges Rotbier. Erinnerte mich an Schanzenbräu Rotbier, freilich ohne ganz dessen Perfektion zu erreichen. Dieses Bier ist definitiv kein Dunkles, auch wenn es hier so eingestuft ist. ========================== Despite its somewhat misleading name, this beer is no Dunkel (dunkel means "dark“ in German, which this beer is not) but an Amber Lager/Vienna. As it is unfiltered, it could also be included in the Zwickel/Keller/Landbier category, depending on which characteristic takes precedence in the rater’s eye. But definitely no Dunkel.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2013
Rötliches Bernstein mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone, minimal trüb. Getreidig-süßes Aroma. Karamell, Fudge und Biscuit, insgesamt schon süß, aber vom fruchtigem Hopfen gut abgepuffert. Süffig.

BeerViking (2467) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
On tap at Hofcafe Bamberg, copper brown with a thin white head, a bit gassy and thin bodied, some nuttiness and a hint of bread. Pretty much a regular country bitter.

harrisoni (13704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2013
On tap at brewery in Rossdorf am Forst. Hazy reddish brown colour with thick dark beige head. Poured really lively. It’s a strange beer, not sure where to place it. Some almost burnt onion flavour. Good depth/character Weird. Onion definitely. Actually I had to pour the rest away.

downender (6278) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2012
On tap at the brewery Gasthof, July 2012. Medium brown in colour with an off-white head. Sweetish aroma with toffee, berry fruits and a touch of leafy hop. Flavour of bready malts and more fruit, leading to a moderately bitter finish. A good beer after a long walk on a hot day.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Lightly toasted malts are accompanied by orange-y fruitiness and earthy hops in this levelled quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy head of foam covers the misty amber.
-This is yet another pillowy mouthfeel from Sauer; so comfortable and so drinkable, while avoiding watery thinness.
-Yeast flavors accompany the hops in the finish.
-The fruitiness brings tart edges as well; I’m not sure if this is wanted or not, but it is harmonious with the rest of the flavor profile.

On tap at the brewery gasthof.

pivnizub (8853) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2010
Bottle: Chestnut-amber coloured, smaller - lacy - off-white head, a bit hazy; light to moderate caramelly nose, fruity and hoppy aromas around; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, soft MF; light caramelly-sweetish finish, balanced by a light hoppiness in the aftertaste. Good franconian quality......
