Schöne goldbraune klare Farbe. Sehr angenehmer Geruch: Malz, leicht geröstet. Im Mund zeigt sich eine unerwartete Bitterkeit, die gut mit dem Röstmalz harmonisiert. Insgesamt ein gutes Bier!

Easy to drink and nice beer all around. Not quite the best as some of ueriges other entries but still very nice. Pours cloudy brown with good head and lacing. Medium bitter finish with lots of sharp grain. Bottle.

I had this beer at Uerige in Dusseldorf. Typical Dusseldorf style alt beer. Nice creamy head with good retention. Fruity and nicely balanced aroma. Hop kicks in at the end. Nice session beer.

Honestly not the best to end on, but I ain’t running this shit, mother fuckers. On top of that, I had to drink the Schenkerla Rauchbier Märzen right before.

Bottle from McTapps, many thanks. Aroma malty, caramel, yeasty. Clear brown colour. Taste is same as aroma, basementy yeasty, light caramelly yeastiness. Rather high bitterness, minor hoppy notes. OK for the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 330ml. Clear copper with medium beige head. Malty aroma, ripe fruits (plum, pear), notes of caramel and a bit spicy. There is a moderate sweet maltiness in the flavor, quite spicy with notes of black pepper, notes of caramel, moderate bitterness and long lasting citrus sourness. Lively carbonation, light to medium-bodied. Very drinkable.

Attractive swing top bottle. Found this at a European restaurant and it went well with the food. It was not to impressive on its own, however. Pretty close to an amber in style, with some acidity and smoky malt.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle received in the Euroswap. Thank you Erzengel! Pours clear deep amber with a frothy beige head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty, tiny fruity and earthy with dark bread, crisp bread, hay, moist soil, minerals, plums, lemon peal and hints of banana. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly bitter, malty and earthy with dark bread, caramel, hay, moist soil, minerals, red apples and lemon peal. Mouthfeel is soft, round, slightly astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is bitter with dark bread, hay, moist soil, minerals and lemon peal. Slight banana and Apple esters I’m not a huge fan off but the dark malts blend nicely with the earthy hops providing a solid enough backbone to make this a pleasant experience.
