Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2013
Ein richtig leckeres, malzig-herbes Bier. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig, leicht säuerlich. Im Hauptteil breiten sich die Röstmalz- und Hopfenaromen schön im Mund aus. Der Nachgeschmack ist relativ herb-malzig mit einer leichten Süße. Auf der Zunge verbleibt eine sehr angenehme, malzig-herbe Note. Eins meiner Lieblingsaltbiere - schade, dass es das nur dreimal im Jahr gibt!
Test vom 31.3.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 12,15,13,13,12,15 - 13,95

ThirstyBird (2314) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Rating from November 2011 - gravity keg. This is a special beer that Schumacher sells only a couple of times a year, today is one of them, the third Thursday of November. It is sold both on draft and in large litre bottles to go. Reddish brown with a nice light tan head that is lofty. Nice lacing. Smells of sweet malt and some bitter hop notes. The taste is initially the sweet malt, some honey is detected. Immediately following comes the hops with some mild bitterness. The aftertaste is slightly bitter and dry. Light/medium in body with has nice fine carbonation. This beer goes down quite easily but packs a bit more punch than their regular offering so watch out!

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 29, 2012
Die Farbe dieses Bieres ist orange-rot und die Schaumkrone hält mittelmäßig lange. Der Geschmack ist ein bisschen hopfig, bitter (leicht und nur von Antrunk- Mitte) aber auch ziemlich wässrig mit einem säuerlichen Beigeschmack. Test vom 13.12.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 9,8,8,9,-,8 - 8,26

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 Meget fin øl, men også lidt kedelig. Men den levere det forventede inden for sin genre

Koelschtrinker (14085) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 9, 2011
Das Latzenbier startet malzig und erreicht schnell den röstmalzigen Status. Dahinter ist das Bier etwas bitter, später tritt dies deutlicher hervor. Würziger Mittelteil, bereits hier ist die Bitterkeit fast DAS Merkmal des Bieres. Etwas fruchtig. Gut, aber nicht super. Test vom 16.11.2007, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 9,10,11,12,11,11 - 10,80

bobinlondon (1262) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2014 Gravity from the wood at brewey tap. Dark gold with an off white head. At first a little sweet, but after a glass or two the hops come through in force and it’s not difficult to see why the whole town seems to decend on the pub to drink this nectar on the 3 days of the year that it replaces the standard house ale. Well worth targeting. Be prepared to josstle for service.

1l-bottle, kindly delivered by pivnizub - díky, díky, díky! Clear amber colour, lovely beige head. Hoppy-caramelly nose. Full-bodied, solid malty bas with lovely biter hoppy flavours and a herbal touch. Hints of caramel, roasted malts and toffee. A delicious beer!
