CZEJEN (6) - POLAND - FEB 11, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2014 Dark copper colour. Well balanced floral aroma with a delicate herbal note. Malty amber taste. It’s possible to get a nice regular and durable foam by the "pour hard method" into a oversized cup. Intnesive orthonasally and retro-nasally impressions. A long and diverse finish. Using just the first wort and 100 percent of munich malt, the brewery created a unique beer. One of my favorites.

Koelschtrinker (16429) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Frisch herb-würziger Antrunk, etwas malzig. Im Mittelteil leicht sörtmalzig gepaart mit milder Karamelligkeit, das Bier wird zudem im Verlauf kontinuierlich herber. Weiterhin sehr frisch, die Würzigkeit nimmt im Verlauf ebenfalls zu. Im Abgang zudem etwas bitter, dezent aber bestimmt malzig. Gut, allerdings scheint der "erste abguß der maische aus dem läuterbottich" noch erheblich verdünnt. Test vom 9.5.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,11,12,11,11

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2013
Geruch malzig, hopfig, dezent schokoladig. Start süßlich und würzig. Mitte sehr würzig, süßlich-aromatisch, getreidig. Angenehm malzsüßer und getreidiger Abgang. Gefällt.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2007
Bottled. Herbal aroma with some caramel malts. Light brown to amber, beige head, good lace. Light sweet, bitter, very herbal and malty. Little sticky with a dry finish. It’s more like an Alt than a Dunkel Export as the brewer says but I still like it a lot.

ThirstyBird (2566) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2013
Pours a clear deep golden yellow color with a rich dense off white head. Smell is caramel malt, grain and a bit of hops. The taste follows the nose with a bit of fruit, and some spiciness. The beer ends with a bit of hay and is dry. Body is light/medium with medium/fine carbonation. Very nice beer.

bartlebier (3303) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2014
Pour@FdB Köln 2014, offered, accompanied by a long introduction on its production process as "Vormanns Vorderbier". Pleasant and rich malt aromatics, chewy HQ grains. if I understand correctly the first mash was prehopped, providing additional depth? Smooth, thick brew, at least for a Helles. Ref.: Fiege Pils.

jfb (5367) - Freising, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2013
(bottle) pours a clear amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of herbal hops and bread dough, slightly metallic, with a hint of straw, cherry stones, raisins and caramel. flavour is mostly just gently roasted malts, very chewy, with some more light caramel, a light peachy fruitiness, earth and a slightly tannic finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Blasphemer (108) - Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 10, 2013
10.4.13:kupferfarben, fester beiger Schaum. Malzig süßes Aroma. Sehr getreideartig bis brotig. Macht schonmal sehr Apetit. Der Geschmack ist da zurückhaltender. Erst spät setzt die Bittere und die leichte Restsüße ein. Lecker
