Malzig süsser Antrunk, röstig kräutrig rauchiger Geschmack. Passt alles nicht so gut zusammen! Tim Webb (470) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
On draught at Eckerts / Hotel Nepomuk in Bamberg. Served at 12 C. Love at first bite. Maybe it was the temperature that allowed so many flavours to be unlocked at once. I had it bottled at JoeinDalhem’s home a couple of days earlier at fridge temperature and it did very little for me though it got better with the passage of (warming) time. In full flood like today this is a great beer for its weight. Lowenbrau (4728) - Asturias, SPAIN - JAN 14, 2017
