Ritzn (676) - Bavaria, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2016
Clear mahagoni with little white head. Aroma is maroni, slight smoke, cherry pips, juice. Taste is nice juicy malt sweetness, some fresh sourness, slight smokey bitterness. Very drinkable, with the perfect amount of bubbles in there, medium body. I really like it.

Bottle. Dark amber color with tan head. Aroma is slightly smoked, Fruchtgummi, a tad oxidized. Taste is juicy malts, caramel, slightly smoked again. Oily mouthfeel. Nicely balanced, I like!

aleigator (831) - GERMANY - AUG 23, 2016
Pours a dark orange color with a big, white head. Smells of whole grain bread, toffee malts and a coppery flaw. Has a fitting medium carbonation with a watery, sweet finish, revealing lots of sweet malts among a watery light body. Tastes of straw and sugary sweet malts which completely dominate the taste. Has an effervescent mid palate which adds a mineral quality to the omnipresent malts, while producing a very light hop dryness in the finish. The finish saves this for me, adding a late suspense to the otherwise not evolving, simple beer.

boloney (81) - Srem, POLAND - AUG 15, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2016 Po nalaniu w szkle powstała fajna czapa piany, która niestety bardzo szybko opadła. Barwa ciemnoburszytynowa. W aromacie dominują bardzo mocne gwoździe, gdzieś z boku czuć karmelowe i słodowe nuty, owoce. Chmiel na granicy wyczuwalności. W smaku karmel, owoce i nieprzyjemny charakter kojarzący się z żelazową wodą. Goryczki praktycznie brak. Piwo słabe i mdlące jak kiepska wuzetka.

*Smooth nice beer with caramel. Round and fresh. Long and mild smooth beer. Fresh caramel, not much bitterness, Round and nice.

cork (4) - GERMANY - APR 18, 2016 does not count
We had it last week from cask at Antonella restaurant in its and our home town Forchheim. More: it was brewed by my grand cousins son. So this is more than subjective. But I find it quite suitable for accompanying food (even Italian) as it runs well (Franconian : "süffig"). Worth trying if you can get it from better than a bottle.

Leighton (19174) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle shared at the brewery during day 2 of the Bamberg Jolly of January 2014. Pours clear, dark gold with a creamy, white head. Rich bready character, with dark cereal, light toffee, minimal bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Nicely balanced on the finish, with more prominent sweet cereal character. Lovely stuff overall.

Icedwarf (1343) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2015
Licht donkerbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is ietwat zoet met sporen van graan zouthout en vanille. Best een goed bier met karakteristieke smaak.
