bartlebier (3408) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2014
Draught@source, HD. Hazy amber orange, thick foam. Yeast-spicy aroma, quite sweet and almost additionally spiced with nutmeg like a pumpkin ale..not bad for a mild RHG Bock. Typical unpasteurised brewpub proteins and some caramels in the nose. Taste sends me in the direction of orange jam, with a weird juniper berry edge to it: fascinating lager esters right there. Good fruity malt base, swete bitter orange aftertaste. Nearly memorable light Bock (abv varies).

ruigo (2318) - PORTUGAL - DEC 16, 2013
50cl from tap at the Brauhaus. It has a pale amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, grassy and lightly hoppy. Average to low carbonation and medium body. Taste is lightly sweet and medium bitter with a long and dry finish. Overall, is a good beer but a little watery and more sweet than I would like to be.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2013
Trübes Bernstein mit ordentlicher Schaumbildung. Blumiges Malz mit leichter Fruchtigkeit. Halbtrocken im Geschmack mit schönem Wechselspiel zwischen Süße und Hopfenherbe. Könnte allerdings etwas kräftiger ausfallen.

Koelschtrinker (17292) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 26, 2013
Hell würziger Antrunk, dezent alkoholisch. Hell würzig, süffig, ich hätte das Bier malziger erwartet. Zum Ende herber, malziger, wenig würzig. 11/9/9/9//9

Enjoyed on tap at Vetters in Heidelberg, DE at the end of a long work trip. This was one of the best of the style that I’ve had, fantastic stuff. Appearance is a full bodied gold with a modest white head. Aroma of sweetness, bit of spice and caramel malt. Taste was pretty sweet but also very flavorful, it’s a definite easy drinker and very enjoyable. Great place.

2011-02-16, draught at the brauhaus, 6.5% ABV, 6-5-6-3-13=33
Hazy amber color; creamy head. Mild aroma, of caramel and apples. The mouthfeel is soft, with some malt and caramel flavor, while the bitterness is low. It seems a bit more mature than one month ago, rounder, but still simple. Unoffensive.

2010-11-14, draught at the brauhaus, 5.5% ABV (?), 7-5-7-3-14=36
Hazy amber color; compact head. Mild aroma of caramel and butter. The body is rounder than a regular beer, even if the beer is not very strong; there is a good caramel flavor, some residual sweetness, light mellow biscuity touch, light butter. The final has a moderate bitterness, with traces of nuts. Quite pleasant.
