Erzengel (9505) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Selten so ein gutes Bier getestet!
Der Antrunk ist süßlich-malzig, aber im Mund entfaltet sich eine tolle süßliche Note mit starken Anklängen an Toffee. Die Süffigkeit ist absolute Spitze, samtig weich läuft es die Kehle herunter. Die Karamelnote, gepaart mit schönem Röstmalz und angenehmer Hopfennote bleibt noch lange im Mund erhalten. MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
Vielleicht schmeckt das Bier auch so toll, weil die Brauerei als eine der Wenigen noch eine eigene Mälzerei besitzt…

Silky toasted malts lean on slender caramel while madeleine cookie impressions are slowly built on the palate.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the cloudy beige.
-Hops provide light spiciness which is very harmonious with the malt character.
-Malts are the star of the show here.
-This brew is 100% Vienna malts. And its flavors are so well developed that this beer becomes a great way to learn how to identify this malt’s signature.
On tap at the brewery gasthof and from the bottle.

draft at Nurnberger Alm.EAGLE82 (235) - Röslau, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2016
rich chestnut brown body with a tall-building fine bubbled tan head. huge graham cracker honey malt nose. medium-thick body, chewy and creamy and fully frothy carbonation with amazing rigid and well-structured malt support. lingering graham cracker malt finish with light dryness and low but noticeable hop bitterness / spice allows this to be a fully malt driven experience. expertly balanced; not too sweet; no astringency; no huskiness... just a blossoming of rich toasted / cracked Munich malt.
beautiful beer. rich color and rich flavor. a shame that such a well-made lager is thought of as so ho-hum, but at least for fans of rich malt experiences where there’s more going on than simply sweetness (i.e. fans of texture), this is sure to please.
Simply a great beer. Nice natural aroma, light dark appearance and a very special taste.

Draft at Nurnberger Alm, Nov. 2012: Clear rust. Dwindling foam subsides into a jagged halo. Rustic and deeply rich bocklike aromas of autumn leaves, leathery pecan skin, Munich malt (browned biscuit), mineral, and intensely peppery hops. Soft and very natural-feeling carbonation. Softly malty with beautifully rounded fresh bread Munich development counterbalanced with a zippy hop bite. Loads of bouncy hazelnut and breadcrusty sharpness adorn the well-layered and continually evolving maltiness. Aided by the graceful carbonation, a seemingly boundless toastiness approaches the depth of rich java. Perfectly delicate twang of fruitiness combines with the mineralic snap to greatly bolster drinkability, just as the malt reengages with its springy pecan and leathery heft. Finishes earthily malty yet simultaneously sweetish with toasted bread and fruit swirled with tobacco, cookie, and breadcrust. A very well-crafted, Vienna-esque rendition with a distinctly fat and juicy malt character that brims with vitality.. KyotoLefty (10693) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 1, 2015
Tap at Nuremberger Alm. Orange-brown with a fine head and a few soft bubbles. Rich malt nose, Munich malts, some caramel, toasted bread. Herbal hops, a bit of citrus. Flavor is malty but not really sweet, toast, caramel, and a good bitter finish Peppery. Full and smooth, soft carbonation but it is enough. Suffig. And very tasty too. Lovely and satisfying with good hoppiness.
