Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 14, 2009
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of pivnizub. Amber with a mediocre head retention. Malty with hints of boiled milk and raisin in both nose and taste. Faintly acidic. Medium bodied. Residual sugars in the finish which is reminiscent of caramel and raisin. Thanks a lot pivnizub! shrubber85 (11710) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Swing-top bottle. Sour milk and barley aroma. Copper color with moderate head. Caramel malt flavor with a hint of grassy hops. A nice beer. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2009
It’s clear, red amber with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, nuts, syrup and caramel. The mouthfeel is quite full and the sweet flavor has notes of syrup, roasted malt, caramel and the finish is slightly dry with notes of citrus. It’s smooth and pleasant. danielst (422) - AUSTRIA - SEP 16, 2009
33cl swingtop bottle: Pours deep red with a stable, fluffy cap. A lightly roasty, but mostly caramelly and sweet malty aroma with hints of chocolate that carry on in the flavour: Really nice flavour actually - rich toasty malt and toffee complexity with light earthy overtones. A bit light on the palate, especially in the finish, otherwise a fine, malt-forward beer. cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 9, 2009
Clear golden, small head, malty fruuti aroma with some hops and citrus. Flavour is mainly sweet and little bitter in finish.

Bottle, bought @ some Tankstelle at the Autobahn, going home from Belgium.fata2683 (2202) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Pours a wonderful, clear, dark amber with an off-white, bubbly and rather fizzy head. Bready aroma with notes of hay-like hops and honey. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is mildly caramel sweet, light roasted and with a fine, lingering citric hoppy finish. Surprisingly tasty...
bottle, pours amber with a thin off white head. Honey and carmel malty nose. Carmel and biscuit malt flavors round out the body with a mild sour hop finish. Carbonation is moderate to high with a crisp mouthfeel. This is actually really tasty. g2bfry (49) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Deep brown with a bubbling beige-brown head. Molasses and caramel malts on the nose. Medium body with just a touch of carbonation, smooth and silky in the mouth. Toffee, molasses, caramel, and a bit smoky. Rye and a bit of sweetness left behind. Very nice deep malty altbier.

33cl flip-top bottle bought in Germany. Opened very lively, poured deep red-amber with a thick yeasty-looking head. Malty and floral aroma. Nutty and slightly chocolatey body with hints of raisins, it’s thinner bodied than the flavour initially made me expect, though. Bitter-sweet finish. A very pleasant German equivalent to a British best bitter, or thereabouts. Nekronos (4213) - Xalapa, MEXICO - AUG 19, 2008
Excellent one. After so many pilsner in Germany I finally find a regio where I can have good beers I like.
