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. thewolf (12599) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle, bought @ some Tankstelle at the Autobahn, going home from Belgium.fata2683 (2176) - 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 (4175) - 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. TaxiDriver (1775) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2008

Appearance: Dark/chestnut brown, basically no head.
