Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2007
(Bottle 100 cl) Courtesy of MoritzF. Pours a beautiful, warm, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head leaving a neat lacework. Sweetish, lightly nutty aroma. Medium body, distinctly sweet, roasted malt with lots of fruity esters - extremely fresh actually. Dry and hoppy finish. Very delicate indeed. 030407

Koelschtrinker (9994) - 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

bierkoning (9819) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2008
At last! Swing top bottle @ LCRBM 2008. Pale amber color. Flowery hops and malt in the aroma. Malty sweetish firm flowery hopbitter flavor. Long earthy citric hopbitter aftertaste. Perfect balance. German beer at its very best.

pivnizub (8574) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2005 Amber coloured, almost ruby, thick ivory head; sweet, extremely full-bodied and "warm" in the beginning, well balanced with an extremely long, hoppy aftertaste. Available only three days a year. Don’t miss it ! Re-Rate 17/11/05 (Latzen-Tag): Extremely well balanced and moreish......

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2005
I´ve just came back from the Latzenbier-Event at Schumachers´ in Düseldorf, which is held only trice a year (every third Thursday in March, September & November). Red amber coloured with frothy beige head. A sweety malty start is followed by a great long elegant hoppy aftertaste. I will be there again in September, that´s for sure. Swing top bottles were available for the home experience.

JorisPPattyn (7715) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2004
(draught - what else?) Fully clear beautiful chestunut coulour; very dense, yellow-amber head, leaving fine lace. Almondy nose, a bit of bread, and maybe some sugar, bit leafy. Very strong malty taste, with again a flavour as the kernels of apples, almondy. Finish is quite bitter, almondy again - and is it the colour suggesting - but I get a chestnut flavour as well. Very well-bodied, nearly chewy. Maltimpression is enormous. Long-lasting, dry-bitter aftertaste, nearly hoppy. I like this Latzenbier much more than Uerige’s Sticke. Malty - the opposite of the superb regular Uerige.

Quack-Duck (7517) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2009
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!
