1L bouteille @ RBBWG III, thanks ThirstyBird. Bottled on 19-12-2013. Cuivrée col beige crémeux. Arôme est malté sur un léger caramel le tout sur qcq notes houblonnées nobles oscillant sur un léger citronné. Palais reste malté, pointe caramel et crystal, amertume légère et noble avec ce caractère très allemand dans la levure. Amertume et houblonnage restent discret.

Bottle from Schumacher Brauerei. Nice white head, which looks really delicious. Mild aroma of fruits, berries, plums and chocolate.Color is much brighter, compared to the "Uerige Sticke", of rich deep bronze, red and brown. Deep chocolate, caramel, raisins, wood, roasted toast flavours, paired with burned malts, very refreshing, dry and hoppy finish, never missing a nice, strong malt backbone. Finish adds complexity to it, because of the still lingering malt. Finish is very long, a bitter taste is still there. Very different compared to the "Uerige Sticke", much milder, deep and complex malt body, lovely.

Erzengel (8412) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2013
Ein richtig leckeres, malzig-herbes Bier. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig, leicht säuerlich. Im Hauptteil breiten sich die Röstmalz- und Hopfenaromen schön im Mund aus. Der Nachgeschmack ist relativ herb-malzig mit einer leichten Süße. Auf der Zunge verbleibt eine sehr angenehme, malzig-herbe Note. Eins meiner Lieblingsaltbiere - schade, dass es das nur dreimal im Jahr gibt!
Test vom 31.3.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 12,15,13,13,12,15 - 13,95

ThirstyBird (2849) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Rating from November 2011 - gravity keg. This is a special beer that Schumacher sells only a couple of times a year, today is one of them, the third Thursday of November. It is sold both on draft and in large litre bottles to go. Reddish brown with a nice light tan head that is lofty. Nice lacing. Smells of sweet malt and some bitter hop notes. The taste is initially the sweet malt, some honey is detected. Immediately following comes the hops with some mild bitterness. The aftertaste is slightly bitter and dry. Light/medium in body with has nice fine carbonation. This beer goes down quite easily but packs a bit more punch than their regular offering so watch out!

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 29, 2012
Die Farbe dieses Bieres ist orange-rot und die Schaumkrone hält mittelmäßig lange. Der Geschmack ist ein bisschen hopfig, bitter (leicht und nur von Antrunk- Mitte) aber auch ziemlich wässrig mit einem säuerlichen Beigeschmack. Test vom 13.12.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 9,8,8,9,-,8 - 8,26
