Bottle @ Uncle Chris’ house in Fürth. Clear, dark orange appearance with a foamy, tan head. Big nutty, woody, herbal aroma. A little chewy, sweet toffee/caramel malty, woody, herbal flavor. Nice stuff.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2008
(bottle) Clear, amber colour with a lacing medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Sweet cara-malty aroma with notes of toffee and a light nutty touch. Sweet and shy bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly toasty and nutty malty taste with caramel/toffee; malt-accented finish with light traces of hoppy bitterness and a whiff of chocolate in the aftertaste. Pleasant (06.X.08).

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Draft at Fränkisches Bierfest in Nürnberg.
Toasty, nutty, bready and clean.
Minerallic, sweet, lightly bitter.
Crunchy and toasty malt flavor early.
Develops juicy / fruity hop bouquet late.
Medium body, crisp, medium carbonation.
Suffers from simplicity but seems fairly well-made.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly lasting. Body is medium amber to light brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread/nuts, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (honeysuckle flowers, orange, apricot), with notes of toffee and golden raisin. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation. I passed this up at Nuernberger Alm despite it being a special offering (to explore Lindenbraeu more, which didn’t pan out), but thankfully Landbierparadies has plenty of this too. Quite fruity-hoppy, wonderful nose that’s varied and very enticing (although I could see Jeffy finding grape jelly in this, due to the distinct raisiny character, so it’s anyone’s guess what he will think). Very clean and balanced and creamy in the mouth...the first 4+ brew of the trip so far (and hopefully not the last).

downender (5896) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2007
Bottle from Der Treffpunkt, Nurnberg HBF. Dark amber with a decent off-white head. Sweet malt nose of buttery caramel. Flavour started malty before a dry bitter finish kicked in. Pleasant.

EithCubes (4623) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Bottle by 24.12.12. Toffee and caramel nose is a little gooey, pours a clear and pretty amber with a tan head. Taste is very sweet and sticky with lots of good toffeeish malt, berry and earth, hind of ash. Light body smooth with just a slight prickle, good malt waves. Like this one a lot.

kappldav123 (4577) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass dark, small head. Starts malty-dry, a bit moldy. Finish with some grasy hints, a bit drier. Okay.

(bottle) pours a clear copper-amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of dark fruit, light bread dough and yeast, quite nondescript, with a hint of roasted malts. flavour is mostly the same, dark fruit and toasted malts, with a light hint of butter, bubble gum, raisins and a very chalky finish. light to medium-bodied with average carbonation.
