Rich golden to light amber color. Dark cream colored head with thick lace at each quaff. Lots of malt in the nose somewhat plain. Rich sweet malt with a nice floral to spicy noble hop recovery. malt linger to awesome. Not quite as smooth as the others I have had from this Monastery, but still a substantial brew.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2006
From a 500ml. euro brown bottle with a bottles date on the back label. Made a very good appearance, poured a clear oranged hued copper with a large foamy, bubbly white head that leaves a decent amount of ringed lacing. Had a big, sweet, honey, caramel bready aroma, a subtle nuttiness and a floral hoppiness in the background. Good carbonation and a slick, smooth, textured flavored medium bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. Delicious tasting, sweet breadiness covered in honey, a toasted graininess, caramel maltiness, a gentle rolling hop bitterness and a dry, crisp, sharp, sweet malty finish.

StueyD (1502) - 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!

DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2008 Bottle from Arden Wines, 5.4%. Bronze pour spiralling with effervescence. Head plump and rocky, mouth bulbous with silk and biscuit, glass woolly with froth. Disarming fresh gust of Munchen hay, honey, herb and biscuit. Sniff of sultana. FRESH freshbread malt, nibble of pinecone, honey slickness, appetising noble bite, just-baked biscuit linger. So very clean and elegantly Germanic. Oh yes. More than a bit tasty.

Bierkrug (2132) - - NOV 23, 2009
500 ML Bottle in Germany. Deep Amber color, with a full orange off white head. Wonderful complex aroma, with earthy grass and hints of spicy herbs. Taste is very well done and perfect for winter foods in Germany. Nice mix of hops and sweet flavors. Palate is full but not overpowering. A really good beer. A great Vienna by any standard!

Bottle. Lovely amber color. Rich, malty aroma that is spicy as well. Fruity flavor with caramel, cherry and other fruits, biscuits and bread. Fabulously complex malts. Very nice stuff.
