500ml bottle in Hamburg on 11th Dec 2014. Not too sure I liked the pink coloured labelling, but the beer inside was fine. Poured a clear chestnut brown with a full, lasting white head. Fruity, malty and pleasant in all aspects, nice.

A Mes rate: 50cl bottle at Quinnsswoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Rich amber brown with a decent off white head. Corn and cereal aroma with some sweet German malt and a really nice smoky hint. Slight metal and an odd fishy note in the flavour spoils the really nice malt and the light bitterness in the finish. So so.
sample at Chriso’s Pre GBBF tasting. caramel colored pour. toffee flavor dominates. Extremely malty, Caramel/ sweet maltiness. OK, missed breadiness of many martens KnutAlbert (6771) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2010
Bottle in Edinburgh.
Powerful, malty beer, you feel they have squeezed all the goodness out of the grain here. This is as home made as the label!
Freshly baked bread, a little yeast, a bitterness that’s not very pronounced, but it does its job. blutt59 (6576) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2011
