UPDATED: AUG 28, 2008 On tap at Berliner Bierfestival. The other rating is done at home, with fewer previous beers, and since the newer rating is lower, I let the old one stand. It was served with a clear, copper body, and a beige head. Quite malty nose, with some hints of vegetables that I didn’t order. The same goes for the flavor, where some corn are present. I’m not fond of corn. It can be nice once in a while, to have a BBQ-ed corncob with butter and salt, but that’s enough for me. I don’t need it in salads or on burgers, and I certainly don’t need it in my beer. The mouthfeel is medium. Except for the vegetables it is a quite pleasant beer, still a bit boring. 4-4-4-3-9-2.4. (070803)

Bottled as Altbayreuther Braunbier. Clear, copper-colored with a beige head. Weak but pleasant aroma of malt and caramel. Caramel, malt and some hops in the flavor. Medium body. A bit boring but not bad. (060929)

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2006
(swing top bottle) Clear, dark amber to copper colour with a fluffy and quite persistent foamy beige head. Dusty, sweet malty, slightly toasty aroma with faint notes of dried fruits and a herbal hoppy touch; also shy notes of metal when its freshly poured. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Softly toasted malty body with light hoppy notes and a shy fruity background. Moderately dry, malty, bitter and herbal hoppy finish. Rather light but somewhat tasty, thus sessionable Dunkel.

Had this one in Bayeruth at Schinner’s Brauhaus. It poured a dark brown with red tones. Big off-white head. Nose of clean malts and maybe some chocolae. Medium body. Even though it seems heavy because of its color, when you closed your eyes it was simply heavenly. I really liked this one.

Sigmund (5571) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2006
500 ml swingtop bottle, under its alias "Das Echte Altbayreuther Braunbier", bought at KaDeWe, Berlin. Reddish brown colour, large and lasting off-white head. Rye bread / bakery aroma, notes of lightly roasted malts and caramel too. Mouthfeel is surprisingly watery, flavour is rather bland and bready, lightly roasted malts with minimal hops. Slightly sourish finish. By all means a drinkable beer, but I expected more flavour than this.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - APR 21, 2006
500ml fliptop bottle: pours clear brown with a medium sized beige head. Light aroma of roasted malt followed by some chocolate. Flavor is lightly roasted malt and a bit of chocolate with a slight sweetness. Medium to light bodied. A pretty nice beer that goes down easily.

EithCubes (5197) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2006
Bottled, mine was an altbayreuther Braunbier. Toasty, nutty aroma on a brown pour with a bubbly, creamy head. Also smells of caramel and molasses. Cellary. Doesn’t taste like a dunkel, that’s for sure. Clean, burned malt taste with toast, nuts, and even a little bit of spice in the finish. Sweet and malty all the way through. Bt thin. Not much of an aftertaste. This is somewhat unique, I’m a fan.

jkbier (66) - Rostock, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2006
Had this as Altbayreuther in a bottle. Clear dark red-brown body with a bubbly cream colored head that dissappears quite fast. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and coffee. Medium carbonation. Flavor of roasted malt, slightly acidic finish. No hops apparent in there. The aroma promised more than the flavor could keep, so I agree with Pernille: overrated brew.
