Hanuta06's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 10/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 18/20
Hanuta06 (469) - Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: moderately hoppy. Appearance: small, frothy, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, sparkling, orange body. Taste: light to moderately bitter, initial flavor and lightly bitter finish with average duration. Palate: light body, watery texture and soft to lively carbonation. Overall: one of my favorite beers. It’s thirst-quenching, has enough hops to keep it interesting, but is also not overly bitter.

thellgren (959) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 15, 2017
0,5 l bottle @ Aufsturz, Berlin. Appearance is brown, clear and great head. Taste is bitter and floral, something like a really good real ale bitter. Yap, this was tasty. Quite an original among German beers.

blackbock (132) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2017
(Bottle) Poured a clear tan/amber colour. Aroma of dark malts. High carbonation but little head which struggled to remain longer than a few seconds. Tastes like some extract homebrews I have tried only with a cleaner finish. Interesting

ALIBALI (1603) - Kiel, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2017
Nett, nicht mehr. Leicht karamelig nussige Nase, a little bit Würzhopfaromen und ein frisch erdiger Trunk, mit einen Tick Malzsweetness, lassen den Sud gut wegrutschen. 0,3 vom Hahn beim heißen neuen Mexikaner am Dreiecksplatz.

peponi (1762) - Hannover, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2016
Aroma: caramel and melanoidins, iron. Appearance: clear reddish-golden color and amazing creamy head. Taste: iron, caramel, melanoidins, low herbal bitterness, dry. Palate: low body and high carbonation. Overall: Rather strange combination of alt and vienna lager. Drinkable, that’s all.

Grumpelmies (290) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2016
Bottle. Beautiful Red colour. Smells of central european hops and malts. Reminds me of a Pils. Taste is nutty, bitter and metallic. Long lasting bitter finish. Good carbonation. Mouthfeel is somewhere between creamy and watery. This is not outstanding but an alright brew. Not sure about the style though, feels like a mix of Alt and Pils.

bbertels (467) - NORWAY - NOV 19, 2016
Backlog. Swingtop bottle at bar in Hamburg. Amber colour, builds an impressive, creamy head. Malt, caramel and floral notes. Medium- to full-bodied taste is rich and mealy, bitter aftermath. Good.

Indeed a beer that distinguishes it self from others by its special red-gold color and warm roasty taste.

dnicolaescu (2441) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 6, 2016
SWING-TOP. Clear dar amber, off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel and somewhat mealy. The taste seem totally lacking malt sweetness, very mealy with an unbalanced hoppy bitterness. Somewhat unrefined.
