yngwie (15762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle. A clear, dark golden beer with a dense, off-white head. Some lacings. The aroma is rather vegetal, with pale malts and grassy notes. Some caramel hints in the flavor, with a generic fruityness. Resin and grass and a decent bitterness. Medium body, very soft carbonation. Some bitterness towards the grassy finish. Very boring this one. Not too good either. 141231

StueyD (1542) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
A mid amber brown coloured beer with a thick white head. A strong malty aroma, caramel and a hint of bready spice. Dry mouthfeel. There is a tartness to the taste in the beginning, maybe a suggestion of hop, but then the malt flavour charge through! Caramel and bready, loads of dried fruit, herbal and a touch of warming vanilla and cinnamon. The finish has all the elements that last for a long while!

Half-litre bottle: BBD 2nd Sept 14, poured into a tall handled mug from Wolzacher Brauhaus at home on 25th July 14. The three beer in my German tasting evening. Looks good, an amber hue to the old gold body, on top a foaming head of white snow. Malty nose and initial taste with a hop bitterness arriving mid-sip. I like it. Robust and tasty, this is a very drinkable brew which hides the 5.4% ABV nicely with its flavours and depth of body. Not too wintery in it’s make up for me, slight herbal note here and there but nothing ’Christmassy’ about it apart from the front label on the bottle.

adster (554) - HUNGARY - JUN 22, 2014
Kellemes, gabonás illatú, selymes állagú, könnyen iható darab. Annak ellenére, hogy nagyon itatja magát, megéri várni vele egy keveset, hiszen idővel olyan újabb aromák sejlenek fel illatában, mint a mazsola, vagy a vanília, íze pedig határozottabban élesztőssé és komlóssá válik. Klasszikusan finom sör.

Jonb5 (459) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
A: Dark, orangy amber, clear, large thick tanned head which didn’t hang around long, moderate lacing. S: Malt, charcoal, reminiscent of a dunkel. T: Started with hints of slightly sweet malty charcoal which was balanced out by some fuggles hop like earthy hoppy bitterness M: Slightly thick texture, low to moderate carbonation, smooth. O: Combined aspects of an English bitter, Munich dunkel and a Franconian kellerbier. Pretty solid.

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2014
Schöne Bernsteinfarbe im Glas mit cremig-gelblichem Schaum. Der Antrunk ist süffig-malzig mit einem leicht muffig-süßlichen Ton, der dich zum Hauptteil noch etwas verstärkt. Der Hauptteil kommt etwas flach daher, malzig-trocken mit angenehmer Malzsüße. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine ganzleicht herbe, aber hauptsächlich malzdominierte Note.
--> Nettes Winterbier, dem ich aber etwas mehr Tiefgang zugetraut hätte.
Test vom 12.12.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,12,10,12,10 - 10,60
