philipmeese's rating

philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - APR 16, 2013
On tap at Radagast Biergarten. Pours a clear deep amber with a healthy bubbly white head that stays. Light caramel backed with hops aroma. Medium body with low carbonation. Flavor a bright well balanced bitter with salt finish. A good beer to accompany salty food.

Michael27 (1885) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2017
Aus der Flasche getrunken (Danke an Veronika). Rotgold mit schöner weißer Schaumkrone im Glas. Allerdings nur ein durchschnittliches Alt.

kajser27 (1786) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 7, 2017
Clear, copper-amber colored, medium- off white head. Aroma is malty, some caramel, bit fruity, some herbal notes. Taste is medium sweet malt, caramel, bit bready, some fruity and herbal notes, light+ bitterness, sweetish finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation.

thellgren (1030) - 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 (1992) - 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 (1842) - 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 (318) - 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 (474) - 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.

Tjeerd (518) - GERMANY - NOV 5, 2016
Indeed a beer that distinguishes it self from others by its special red-gold color and warm roasty taste.

dnicolaescu (2534) - 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.
