ruigo (874) - PORTUGAL - APR 15, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle. Pours a clear brown colour with a thin tan head. Aroma is caramel, roasted and malty. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet with a long dry finish. Overall, a very good beer with a much lighter body than thought in the first place.

monk191 (728) - California, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Not a great beer, not bad or distasteful, just boring. Pours a very nice clear red with a thin white head. A bit of malt in the smell. Taste is really bland, almost like water with a hint of malt, and a weird bready finish. Had in the bottle.

bartlebier (1196) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2014
50cl bottles, Maruhn 2013. World class dunkel, setting old new Old World subtle standards in chocolate roast and dryness while remaining very sessionable at under 5%. Heiße Maroni, undercurrents of bock fruitiness. Pinnacle of back-to-basics bottom-fermenting, liquid elegant simplicity. Is it a coincidence that this is the 2nd world-class brewery in Kelheim with a flavour/yeast profile wholly its own?
