Bottle from Getranke Mekka, Nurnberg. Pours is dark amber with big tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, hazelnuts, floral, barnyard aromas. Taste is light sweet, light bitter, hazelnuts on tongue. Light body, thin to creamy texture, light roasty finish. Good one. jawe (40) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2016
Very solid lager. Balanced maltiness and full bodied. Good for drinking a lot in a row. Surprisingly good. ganache (6056) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2006
Ahh, memories from two years ago...Bottle. Aroma of nut, dark malts, and dark chocolate with a little barnyark funk / veggies...touch of bread and popcorn. Dark nut brown / dark copper pour with a sticky, lacing beige head. Creamy crisp taste with all of the above included. Toasted nutty choco veggie. Light flowery sweetness balanced by hops. Mild, with light end-bitterness. Nice and malty, nice and rural. jfb (6624) - GERMANY - SEP 1, 2008

o,50 bottle purchased in Franconia-Germany and consumed in Kosovo. Mortlach, beviiiiiiii. Pours a very brownish-dark amber color with a medium ivory foam with retention on the surface. Nose: burnt bread crust, a far too wired farmhouse note (mmmmh), a hint of liquor (Ballantines, something sweet or orangey). Mouth: amber-vienna malts orientation forward, easy drinking anyway, sweet character immediately cut by a bitter finish. Not that refined, a bit confusing although highly enjoyable.

Dark amber beer poured from bottle into a Steinkrug, rustic buttery whiffs of diacetyl immediately apparent. Lightly sweet with a firm brace of herbal bitterness, some slickness adding to the perception of a rich, lightly carameled malt character underneath. Idiosyncratic, like so many of the village beers of this region. bartlebier (4123) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2016
50cl bb06/2016, as simply Krug-Bräu Lager. Surprisingly dark amber pour. Rustic farmhouse aroma, stewed/smoked apples and buckwheat porridge. Slightly smoky, going on Schlenkerla Lager in taste, with some dairy creaminess and that distinct juniper-like spelty edge in the malt base. Plenty of character, easy drinking. Seems like Krug-Bräu anticipates/overlaps with Czech brewing techniques and does not shy away from painting with a buttery brush. Piepenhenrich (1230) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2017
From bottle. Transfer of an earlier rating without text recorded, rating only. gnoff (10966) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2017
Bottled on November 13, 2017. As a blind tasting. I think it was purchased at Landbierparadies, online shop.
As "Krug-Bräu Lager".
Clear dark reddish brown color, tan head. Grainy, bread like, clean scent, a bit short on the hops. Malty, bread like, käckebröd, clean taste, again a bit short on the hops. Medium mouthfeel, medium CO2 feeling, medium bitterness.
