Aufsesser Zwickl
Pours a clear amber color with a big, spongy head. Smells of wet straw, young grass and a note of dough. Has a floral potatoe skin sweetness to it, which settles atop the other aromas. Has a very lively carbonation, countering the sweet toffee defined mid palate in favor of the beers refreshing, light bodied appearance. Tastes of fresh cut grass and soft straw, developing a mellow early dryness, getting soothed by toffee malts, which slowly turn more and more recognizable. Offers a bubbly burst of carbonation, numbing the tongue for a short moment, which then leads to an aqueous, soft finish featuring bready, sweeter malts and a hint of the beers initial grass quality. Nice interpretation of a Zwickl, a tad unbalanced though, as for its sweet, overcarbonated middle part, partly destroying the light and fragile initial flavors.

Fecal and beany corn and hay nose. Hazy yellow, thin head. Mild hay, some peanut hulls. Light body, harsh mouthfeel. Very disappointing. Mildly distinguishable from American macro lagers, but unfortunately not any better.

Aufsesser Bock Bier
Bright red-gold with some fizzly foam that fades. Caramel-forward in nose and taste, with a sneaky bitterness that leaves the beer roundly balanced and more than a bit dangerous. Lacks the sort of fruity zip I want from better bock beers, but this is well made.

Draft at brewery guesthouse. Bright gold with lush foam, mild herbal-floral nose. Firmly bitter and light honeyed malt sweetness, with enough herbal hop flavor to be interesting. Very nice pils that helps me understand why this brewery’s Keller Pils is so good.

Aufsesser Dunkel
Draft at the Brauereigasthof. Clear dark red color, more maroon than brown, fulsome foam. Toasted malt nose with hints of coffee. Dry, roast and toast taste, something like a mild helles dosed with roasted malt. Lacks a sweet malty bridge to connect the base with the color, lacks that malty depth. Still, it drinks well enough.

50cl fliptop bb04/2016, Maruhn or REWE Bayreuth. - Deep and thick amber pour. Rich honeyed bread crust in aroma with a sourish mash edge, offering the same grainy fruit riches in taste: bready caramels, apple butter, honey. Shy of being too sweet and filling, saved by the sour mash and good natural hop peppers.

Cloudy, orange-amber colored, small white head, good lasting. Aroma is sulphury and sour cabbage, unpleasant at first, clears after some time, moves to bready yeasty. Taste is light+ sweet malty, bread, crackers mostly, yeast, low+ strawy bitterness, lasting bitter after but somewhat harsh. Light+ bodied, soft+ carbonation, watery.

Thanks kajser! Darker honeyish amber-golden, misty, with a medium white head. Huge huge caramelly dry malty-yeasty blast in the aroma, actually likable. Hmmm... husky grainy note in the taste, medium sweetness, nothing else. Kinda undefined finish and aftertaste, stuck somewhere between sweet and salty and unappealing. Some weak herbal hoppy notes pop through nicely but rarely. Eh.

Usually a tasty and interesting quaffer, but not entirely consistent. Bottle. Thickly hazy red-orange-amber. Fruity orange-zest and grain in the nose. Some faint garbage DMS in the aroma, but I’ve had many bottles of this and never noticed it before. I get more of a zesty-citrus quality than a doughiness from the yeast, with a fairly firm spicy bitterness and light mineral tang. Fairly lively carbonation, finishing dry. I like this one fine but find the Keller-Pils to be more distinctive.

Aufsesser Keller Pils
Bottle from the brewery in Aufsess. Clear gold with a white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma impression is toasty Pils malt and green apples, faint lemon and herb German hops with a seemingly strong calcium / mineral water quality. Light bodied, vibrant and citric and lightly sweet, hops are nicely oily and juicy but I get a vitamin / calcium carbonate chalky character that I find unpleasant. It’s not bad, has some good malt and hop play but the texture is a little rough.

Nettes Dunkel mit den üblichen Verdächtigen: Etwas an Malz, dazu minimal Karamell, und ein paar Nüsse. Die Malzigekit ist nett, dabei natürlich dominierend, der Geschmack eher muffig und tranig. Geht so.
