Pours clear dark golden color with a minimal head. Aroma of starch, caramel, malts and sweet fruits. Flavor of starch, hay, malts, caramel and yeast. Straightforward.
(swing top bottle) Clear, bright amber colour with a big and slightly beige foamy head. Slightly draffy caramel-malty aroma with notes of herbal and slightly grassy hops, accompanied by traces of Cantuccini cookies in the background. Bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malty and slightly bready taste with rounded herbal hoppy notes; dry bitter-sweet finish with herbal hops and a tinge of cara-malt in the aftertaste. Interesting Vienna-Pilsener hybrid. 17.II.12 Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2012
bottle, kindly donated by pivnizub - díky moc! Clear, deep golden colour, large white head. Slightly sourish malty nose. Medium-bodied, malty base with nice herbal hops, slightly medicinal. Spicy finish after a malt dominated middle part which also has hints of darker malts. Erzengel (8624) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2013
The beer starts smooth, slightly bitter and nicely smooth. The mainpart is smooth, slightly bitter. Caramel, malty, highly drinkable. The aftertaste is medium to long. Smooth, not too sweet, not too much caramel. Cuso (8616) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 4, 2012
--> Nice beer but nothing that special. If I remember the "Schwelmer Bernstein" correctly, this beer is less sweet, which I like better. Nice to drink and smooth. Leaves a not too sweet caramelly and slightly bitter note on the tongue.
Bottle, many thanks to pivnizub. Deep golden color with medium stable white head. Lively carbonation. Malty fruity aroma. Taste, malty with bitter hops, caramel. Long bitter finish. Easy drinkable beer. laiti (8374) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 4, 2014
50 cl bottle @ wPBF’14, BBE 16.04.2014
Aroma is sweetish with honey and grainy notes. Flavour has buttery tones, some grass and honey. Also some grainy and somewhat bready malt. Refreshing.
