htnicholas (50) - California, USA - OCT 2, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a clear but medium dark reddish amber with a two inch tan sustained head. Very light aroma of carmel and baked bread. Has an earthy and caramel malt flavor to it. Fairly sweet. A slight hop bitterness to balance it out. More of a malt than a hop finish. Somewhat average and un-distinctive despite being an Altbier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grumpelmies (65) - 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 (403) - 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.

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.

Roodbruin helder bier met schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en niet zoet met iets van gebakken brood en hooi. Aangenaam bier.
