Bierkrug (2133) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2014 355 ml bottle in Margate, FL. Pours caramel in color with an off white foam head. Toffee notes in aroma along with hints of fruit and sugar. Blast of sweet maltiness at first taste, followed by clear citrus and fruity hop notes, slight hint of alcohol. Creamy body that lingers with sweetness. Noticed more fruit character as I drank more in the palate..

Translucent brown and quite effervescent and heady for this style of beer. Nice caramel and malty flavors. Pretty tasty if unspectacular beer.

johnnyoski (431) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle. Rusty brown pour with a tan head. Faint dry cereal aroma. Slight bitterness is balanced quite well by the sweet malty finish. Average carbonation with a sticky texture. Nothing to make this a notable beer but its goes down quite smoothly.

Poured from a bottle. Moderate head that dissipates quickly. Nice dark amber color. Sweet aroma of bread and fruits. Strong, sweet, malty flavor with hints of vanilla. just enough of a hop backbone and tartness. Overall a very tasty brown ale.

Bacterial (1413) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Clear light brown pour with a small tan head. Roasted malt nose. Malty taste - biscuit and bread. Some slight mineral notes in the middle that moves into hop bitterness finish. Ok.

Listigovers (292) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
Smelled sweet, very rich malty brown, long aftertaste that continues to develop for a minute or so after the beer has gone down. Has that signature smuttynose taste. Well done.

allmyvinyl (2922) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 11, 2013
355ml bottle at home. Pours clear brown with little to no head, doesn’t last. Aromas of light chocolate, fruity hops, dark sugar. Taste is more hop-bitter than an English brown ale, but nice, and with a rounded sweet finish. Texture a little thin, but nice bitter finish.
