MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2007
(draught at the brewery) Slightly hazy, amber colour with a big foamy, slightly off-white head. Moderately sweet and toasted malty, slightly bready nose with a touch of smoke and citrousy fruity notes. Light bitter flavour with an even lighter sweetish edge, almost medium bodied with a moderate, well-carbonated and smooth mouthfeel. Slightly toasted, malt-accented taste with smoked malt (or is it the “offene Befeuerung” that evokes the impression?), leaving room for a subtle fruitiness; moderately dry, slightly bitter and smokey finish. Not only a well-quaffable but superb and even complex brew. Highly recommended.

Wow! This was a surprise after all those mediocre Franconian beers. Hoppy aroma with light sweet malts. Dark amber color, beige head, good lace, certainly good looking. Light sweet, full, soft, some caramel, hoppy, light bitter. Medium long bitter finish. One beer I could get used to!

JorisPPattyn (7977) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 17, 2003
Lighter chestnut, very clear; cream-coloured, dense & big head. Rich bread nose, some Kümmel included. Lots of caramel too, maybe even some Maillard. And, incongruously, Chinese shrimps in batter (sorry). Eeeeh! - that's a nice bitterness for a German brew. Good malty (sweet and roasted) underbuild, but the noble German-type hops reign. I still suspect Maillard. Titillating mouthfeel & carbonation as from mineral water. Medium to full-bodied. Rather long bitterish aftertaste, with malt-syrup. As John & Edo said, this beer is far above the general Franconian level. Very good - thanks to L. Meulders who has a good nose for a good pint.

Quack-Duck (7958) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2007
bottle from MoritzF - Danke! Amber colour, large and creamy head which is very persistent. Malty aroma with a touch of smoke. Full-bodied, solid malty base, pleasantly hopped and with a very pleasant and appealing smoky touch.

downender (6391) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2008
On draft at Zeitgeist @ the Jolly Gardeners, Lambeth, 16/5/08. Chestnut coloured with a decent, foamy off-white head. Aroma of raisins, slightly smoky malt and a touch of caramel sweetness. Flavour was of slightly doughy malt, easy-drinking with more fruit, some earthy hops and spice and a touch of smoke in the finish. Excellent stuff.

pivnizub (8927) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2007
On tap at the brewpub: Amber coloured, quite firm off-white head; distinctive sweet-dark-malty nose with a touch of roasted malt; robust sweet-bitter flavour, medium-bodied, soft MF; slightly lingering sweet-malty finish with a distinctive touch of smoked malt in the aftertaste. Good and moreish..........

Clear amber with a medium off white head. Aroma had smoke, toasted malt, caramel and hints of bacon. Flavour had toasted malt, caramel, smoke and ham. Finished dry and bitter from the present hops.

MiP (13671) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Weak smoky aroma. Clear dark copper colour. Small off-white head. The flavour is quite smoky as well, also malty and slightly sweet. I do not know if the smoke is intended, but it works well.

Koelschtrinker (10836) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 6, 2011
Herb-süßer Antrunk mit leichter Rauchnote, die mit der Zeit süßer und etwas stärker wird. Angenehme Intensität des Rauches, der Hintergrund ist aber zu mild. Trocken, wenig herb und gerstig, sehr süffig. Im Abgang allgemein milder, etwa schokoladig. 9/9/10/10//10
