Bottle shared courtesy of and with a slightly enraged (but willing to share) Malaysian stink badger at the December THT. Clear golden orange with a small off white head. Aroma of malt, fudge and toffee. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter. Light bodied with soft carbonation. WillemsUrenkel (1874) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2016
0,5 l bottle out the the last big box from kapppldav123 so far as I remember. Dark amber in the glass, nearly clear with a big frothy light beige head. Looks really good. Decent malt on the nose. Taste starts roasted malty, low sweetness, grain, bready and low but present bitterness. Highly recommended! djoeye (4605) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2016
Aroma; toffee, malts, honey, sweetbutter, faint mild hops.
Look; deep clear amber body, fawn bighead, very inviting.
Taste; sweet malts, toffee, honey, sweet butter, grass, hops, sweet barley syrup backbone - smooth malted finish, some hops popping up. Foam tastes lots of minerals and hops. Feel; normal body, near flat fizz. Overall; good vollbier, some carbonation may improve it. [50cl.btl 4.9% BB/14/9/(2016)]

Frisch vom Hahn in Nürnberg getrunken. Helles Kupfer mit schöner Krone im Glas. Mild malzig, Röstnoten sehr zurückhaltend. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2015
From draft at the brewery. Crystal clear copper-amber with a lasting off-white head. Quiet aroma is malty in the way of graham cracker and toasted cereals with quiet floral hoppiness. It’s lightly yeasty and minerallic with subtle off-notes of grain husks and paper. There’s a small bit of toffee and pipe tobacco in the nose as well, it’s the most interesting aspect of the beer, but unfortunately it’s pretty dull. Medium-light bodied, malty, sweet, lightly bitter and acidic. Carbonation and malt texture are both a little rough and edgy, and the body is watery and the finish is quick. No major defects, just bland expression and watery / flabby body.
