Licher Original 1854 3

330ml bottle bought at Cheers in Yuen Long.

Cloudy hazy straw light golden colour with a thin ring of yeast sedimentsThree-quarter finger head and crumpety white foam which last for one minute; Excellent sticky lacing and fizzy carbonation; Slightly pungent and sweet aroma of bready malt, with strong honey, smelly floral, herbs, thick bread, strong yeast, faint lemon and strong strawy grass; Mid to light sweet taste of moderate malt, with light floral, light honey, molasses, biscuits, strong yeast, thin herbs, fair lemon, fair bitter hops and light grass; Light body. Dry and quite Slick palate; Mouth feel is solid maltyness in a fairly light background. Other that the floral and honey sweetness is low. Yeast is dry biscuity and fair herbs and hoppy lemon to round. Okay… Hoppiness is floral, strong herbs, thin lemon and straw in nose, and stronger in taste; Bitterness is moderate to strong for a lasting, mid-to-high astringent herbal malty finish; Dry after taste. Lemony and bitter to mouth.

Comments: Its strong herbal and yeasty aroma set the tone, with good lemon hoppy taste which gets better as beer warms. Maltyness is good but the body is somewhat thin. An above decent and very drinkable Kellerbier.

Licher Weizen Hefe Hell 3.1

500ml bottle as “Licher Weizen Hefe-Weizen” bought at Cheers in Yuen Long.

Cloudy hazy straw light golden honey colour with a thin trace of yeast sediments; Two finger head with crumpety white foam which last for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing and fizzy carbonation; Very fragment aroma of moderate malt, with strong wheat, very strong tartness, banana, vanilla, strong caramel, sugar, strong cloves, spices, strong yeast, lemon and light grass; Mid to light sweet taste of moderate malt, with strong wheat, tartness, banana, caramel, very light molasses, light phenolic, ligth cloves, spices, strong yeast, light lemon and light bitter grassy hops; Close to medium body. Creamy palate; Mouth feel is pretty rich maltyness in a very smooth background. Strong wheat presence but not as tart as the aroma suggests. Good banana, very creamy but rather weak clove and spicy ester. Quite okay… Hoppiness is lemon and light grassy in nose and weaker in taste; Bitterness is very low-fi for a mostly wheaty finish; Fairly dry after taste. Very smooth and quite easy to mouth.

Comments: This one has pretty impressive wheaty tart aroma, but ester-wise it’s rather weak in taste and not outstanding. Easy drinking is the order of the day. One of the crowd but I like its creaminess, though.

Licher Pilsner Premium 2.8
Ein durchschnittlicher Pilsner. Nicht schlecht aber auch nicht etwas besonderes. Die Brauereien in Deutschland verwenden oft mehr Hopfen als wir es in Dänemark gewohnt sind. Vielen Dank dafür. Dass ist bei Licher Pilsner leider nicht der Fall.

Licher Pilsner Premium 2.8
Clear gold, pours with a light fluffy head. Light-bodied, moderate amounts of hops, slightly bitter undertones. A good thirst quencher on a warm day.

Licher Original 1854 2.3
Bottle best by March 2016. Hazy gold with a short white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is lemon, dough, oxidized pale malt. Prickly, acidic, carbonic, saccharine-like sugariness, faint vegetable DMS. There’s some decent noble hop effect but the high effervescence and rough texture show that this is an industrial beer without soul.

Licher Export 2.6
Bottle. Pours clear golden with stable white head. Clear aroma of yeast and malt, with mild hoppy notes and touches of cardboard. Sweetish, malty and estery taste, not bespeaking high quality ingredients, supplemented by mild, bitter hoppy notes. Bitterish and estery aftertaste with notes of wet paper. Drinkable but not particularly enjoyable.

Licher Weizen Hefe Hell 3.3
BOTTLE 50 CL. Cloudy orange, huge off-white head. Classic aroma of banana, yeast, a hint o clove and some lactic/yogurty tartness. The taste has the same classic notes, but also a strong dusty grain overlay and some stale malts. Mediocre.

Botella. Color ámbar dorado. Muy bonita. Ligeramente turbia. Bien de espuma. Agradable aroma mezcla entre plátano y naranja. En boca resulta muy bebible y refrescante. Toques afrutados con algo de albaricoque. Final tirando a dulce. Está bien

Typisches deutsches pils, mit leicht überdurchschnittlicher Bittere. Hinterlässt diesen leicht pelzigen Geschmack im Mund.

Licher Oktoberfest 3.4
Bottle from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy straw colored, perhaps the lightest lovibond value I’ve yet seen for a marzen. Nose is wheaties, some hips. Tastes malty, somewhat sweet, with grainy notes, some honey sweetness, and a smooth finish. This is a rare beer whose nose led me down bland street, but the taste was electric avenue, and for a style than I find rather boring, nonetheless.

Licher Weizen Hefe Hell 3.2
500 mL bottle poured at the resort in the Dominican. I tried so many different beers down there and I’m still finding random ratings on napkins and hotel stationary throughout my house. Guessing whether I entered the rating or not has become a fun game, and results in a rating like this one 3 months later. Pours a fizzy golden yllow with a thick foam head. Big wheaty sweet aroma. Sugary. Flavor is bitter, wheat and a mild orange fruit. Refreshing beer, but nothing that stood out to me.

Licher Weizen Hefe Hell 2.5
Just says Hefe-Weizen on bottle. Pours orange, nice white he’s that fades to a bit of foam quickly. Citrus nose with orange and lemon kissed with a touch of banana. In the mouth, very orange, being in fake. I guess it’s ok for what it is, but it’s not what I think of as a here.

Licher Original 1854 3.5
Piana śnieżnobiała, drobnopęcherzykowa, koronkuje pięknie, utrzymuje się długo. Barwa piwa słomkowo żółta, piwo nieprzejrzyste, jednolicie zmętnione, wydaje mi się, że jak na piwniczne, to trochę za jasne. Aromat lekko słodowy, karmelowy. Bardzo stonowany i przyjemny. W smaku dosyć płaskie, brakuje głębi, goryczka jest słaba, nie zalegająca. Piwo o średnim wysyceniu. Gładkie i dobrze pijalne.

In der Base derbe Zitronen-Aromen. Im Trunk leicht Malz, dann eigentlich nur süß und im Abgang unschön bitter, was leider viel zu lang anhält. Das brauch ich so schnell nicht mehr.

Licher X 2 Cola 1.2
Chugged 33cl, en route through Hessian nomansland, a forced libation in tune with the post-terrilian terroir. Mid-German, regional brewing giant Licher makes an emblematically dull pilsner for the regional Bitburger markets surrounding Hessian spoil tips, where fancy Biermischgetränke still spell avantgarde. Dump a cheap, ascorbine-powered supermarket cola into that, et voilà. Ad phrase: Always not cold enough.

Licher Weizen Hefe Hell 3.1
2 50cl bottles, shared with friends. Hazy golden colour with medium white head. Smells grainy and yeasty. Taste is moderate banana with cereals. Slightly bitter on the aftertaste. Medium body, good carbonation. Pretty average, there’s not much to say.

Trübel hell gelbe Farbe, mittelgroße weiße Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht zitronig säuerlich, süß, kein Bier. Geschmack süß nach Limo, leicht zitronig säuerlich, gibt weitaus bessere Naturradler.

Licher Original 1854 4.4
Color ambar cremoso y turbio con una cabeza firme y blanca. se aprecia abundantes burbujas. Aroma a caramelo, nueces tostado, leves cítricos, tierras y cuero. Levemente ahumada. Cuerpo complejo con textura ligeramente cremosa, suave al paladarm sin picor de burbujas y un leve pero largo final astringente. Sabor medianamente dulce con un leve toque salado. Una cerveza digna de ser catada. Cremosa compleja y ligera. Quizá no muy arriesgada en su sabor, considerando que es una Ale, pero muy disfrutable. Añadida a mis favoritas

Licher Weizen Hefe Hell 3.1
Anaranjada turbia de abundante espuma y burbuja fina. Aroma malteado y con el clásico plátano. En boca mantiene, y el dominio es dulce pero aparecen otros matices en el sabor, cítricos y especiados sobre todo en el final que es seco. Gas notable y cuerpo medio, cremosa. Apreciable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Een heel lekkere geur als je hem inschenkt. Maar de smaak is zoals het typische Duitse Weisbier, nogal flets vind ik.

Licher Original 1854 2.7
Flasche (33 cl) aus einem Edeka-Markt in Nordhessen. - Orangegelb, schön trüb; lockerer Schaum. - In der Nase Hefe, etwas Malzsüße und sehr zurückhaltender, schwach zitroniger Hopfen. - Antrunk schlank mit milder Hefe und mild zitronigem Hopfen vor schwach getreidig-süßlichem Malz mit einer Spur von Karamel. Etwas milder rezent als üblich. Im Abgang kräftigere Hopfenherbe von der derben Sorte, krautig und leicht schroff. Längerer bitterer Nachtrunk. - Angenehm süffiges, erfrischendes Zwickel ohne herausragende Aromawerte. Durchaus trinkbar, vor allem im Vergleich mit dem beinahe ungenießbaren Licher Pilsner.

Licher Weizen Hefe Hell 3.3
Hazy orangy color with medium creamy white head. Aroma is pungent, very spicy, with coriander and clove, also hints of banana. Body is lighter than other Hefeweizen. Taste is sweeter than the aroma, here, banana is more present, but has some tartness and spicy notes. Good Hefeweizen, but I prefer the sweeter ones.
