Koelschtrinker (17738) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 1, 2011
Karamallmalziger Antrunk, ordentlich aromatisch. Dabei spielt der Hopfen eine deutliche, nicht aber entscheidende Rolle, das Malz gleitet von Anfang an aus. Im Abgang noch leicht karamellig, auf selber stufe hopfig. Furioser Antrunk, der den besten Teil darstellt.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2009
Ceramic mug. This has a toasty aroma with light diacetyl. There is some butter on the palate as well, with notes of toast and caramel.

Dedollewaitor (15580) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2010
Bottle @ Pelikan, Bamberg. Pours clear yellow with a small white head. Very grassy and grainy. A bit of svovl and buiscuit. Dry and hoppy flavor. According to the waitress at Pelikan this should be the same as Hausbrau Stegaurach Lager.

MiP (15305) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Weak dusty aroma, perhaps even faintly buttery. Clear copper colour. Very small white head. The flavour is caramelly, seems a little oxidised. A bit of butter, but not so bad. Faintly sweet, but not too bad.

pivnizub (10186) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2009
Draught (served in a stein): Strawy-malty nose with a light herbal hoppiness underneath; creamy lacy off-white head; light to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied, a bit sticky; short strawy-bitter finish. Quite mediocre by franconian standards.........

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2012 draft at the brewery. clear amber gold. apple candy nose. watery texture and thin with low acid gives it a surprisingly weak body. apple and pear juice flavors, minerallic, gravel-like and rough with fizzy and loose soda carbonation. poorly made and poorly designed.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Draft @ brewpub. Served in krug, looks nice with a lasting head. Aroma is buttery! And so is the palate, which is slick and oily. Has an earthy, mushroom flavor but just enough hops to keep it sane.

TAR (2693) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Tap at the brewery in Dec. 2013: Burnished golden. Deeply flawed aromas of yogurt, vinegar, metal, paper, light caramel and DMS. Soft carbonation. Flimsy body. Very muddled and flabby with wet paper maltiness, chemicals and cheesy yeast. DMS and metallic fusels are unremitting throughout. Nots of gummy candy contribute additional off notes to the baffling foulness. No trace of malt or hops. Chemical-laden finish is metallic, with vitamin B flavors and grape candy. An interesting take on a kellerbier, that’s for sure. More like an infected soda pop. Pretty amazing that even in Franconia one can stumble upon the occasional head-scratcher such as this one!
