bartlebier (3946) - 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. pivo (2685) - GERMANY - MAR 28, 2005
Doughy malty nose, deep copper-brown color. Light caramelly malt with some raisin flavor. Broad oaky bitter. Medium body with a crisp texture, though the mouthfeel was a little soapy. OK, but not so special. bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2007
Bottle. Amber coloured with a medium sized off-white head. Malty and a bit fruity with notes of grass, grain, bread and hops. Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2012
Kastanienbraun mit feinporigem Schaum. Etwas lieblich-malzig im Geruch. Der Antrunk ist sehr weich und wiederum lieblich-malzig. Der Abgang ist nicht so gut ausgeprägt wie beim Festbier aus gleichem Hause. Insgesamt ein braunes Lager, dass sich schnörkellos gut trinken lässt, ohne bleibenden Eindruck zu hinterlassen.

Golden towards braun, white, yellow foam. Sour malt and a hint of spice in the aroma. SWEET malt, toffee and sweet growing bitterness in the aftertaste. High in carbon.

On tap at the Pappenheimer Wirtschaft, Hamburg: 11th Dec 2014. Clear brown body with a lasting white head that gave impressive lacing. Malty and sweet in both the nose and taste. A very nice Dunkel, if like me you prefer the sweeter versions of the style. Uncomplicated and decent. rauchbierlover (648) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 24, 2015
Pour light brownish with a tall, vanishing tan and bubbling head. Caramel and malty aroma. Taste is sweet, malty, toffee. Nice lager, refreshing, tasty. How a real lager should taste like. Medium body, medium carbonation. DoctorHU (520) - UKRAINE - OCT 9, 2015
Beer dark amber color with a medium-grained, moderately resistant foam. The aroma: sunflower seeds, light and oily perfume and a little caramel.
Body moderately dense on the palate: light caramel sweetness, sunflower seeds, a little grassy and rancidity.
The aftertaste: malt, grassy tones, caramel, the same seeds, moderate bitterness with a rancid color. MichaelAwesome (6516) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2013
After drinking lots of hops dominated beers this one was a huge malty surprise. Quaffy, malty, full bodied, easy to go. Some nuts and caramel in the background. But this does not matter as malt wins it all. Good one.
