Bottled. Amber colour with a mediumsized fluffy/foamy head. Aroma is caramel malts, some mild floral and herbal hops along with mild toffeeish notes as well. Flavour is mild toasted notes, some caramel malts, toffee, mild sugary notes as well as some slight floral, herbal and earthy notes. Pleasant, but could do with slightly more bitterness. muffel (150) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - APR 13, 2012

18 Oct 2011: Brown 500ml bottle best before the end of this month, so 12 days life left when poured into my lovely Wolnzacher Brauhaus glass tankard.
It looked fantastic, a bright amber body as clean as any beer on earth, on top an off-white head of quality.
The aroma was of earthy malts with hints of caramel and sweet molasses.
The taste an impeccable blend of all things good about German beers: the brew is obviously infused with the best ingrediants available and lovingly produced to a high standard.
Peppery aftertaste, earthy and filling, I had some rough brown bread and some mildly smoked ham with the last few drops of the beer and it suited the food beautifully.
Very impressed indeed.

Clear amber-brown colour, large off-white, nearly beige head. Malty, some green hops, some aromatic hops, slightly herbal. ElDesmadre (3630) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle from Quack-Duck, vielen Dank! Amber with an impressive fluffy head. Aroma is caramel malt, grain, some hops and subtle toffee. Maybe I’m prone to autosuggestion but something in this aroma is rural indeed, quite pleasantly so. Taste is light sweet with a medium bitterness, malty, caramelly and toasty with hints of toffee. Ok but unremarkable.

Bottle. Amber color. Hardly noticeable bready aroma. malty grassy firm hopbitter flavor. Bready. Pleasant and tasty beer. Grima (2506) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JUN 24, 2011
Bright amber color, high, long-lasting, head. Smells very malty, slightly roasty and subtle grainy. Starts malty bitter and roasty, with a slightly grainy aroma. The finish is also very malty, slightly bitter and dry. Valrak (2) - - MAY 2, 2011 does not count
A nice mid red/brown colour. Clear with a nice natural carbonation.
Clean and crisp on the nose with slight malt, citrus and toffee/caramel notes.
Initially sweet with the malt lasting throughout.
An underlying fruit base comes through ( like Abbot Ale ) but the malty, biscuity sweetish finish with almost a raisin aftertaste makes this a winner for me..... jfb (6647) - GERMANY - APR 19, 2011
(bottle) pours a clear amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of dark fruit, caramel and hazelnuts, with lots of grain and mustiness. flavour is more on the roasted malt and coffee side of things, though still quite grainy, with a light roasted-bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation. Hermod (8349) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 3, 2011
50cl bottle. Poured copper color with a frothy white head. Woody, caramel malt aroma, flavor is caramel, some roastedness and woody/earth notes. Flawless, simple dunkel. Enjoyable.
