Koelschtrinker (19395) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Herber Antrunk, in dem das Aroma alleine steht und auf nachzgler wartet.Spter wenig wrzig, der Gesamteindruck ist aber positiv. Recht sffig, auer der Herbe sticht zum Ende noch der Hopfen hervor. Angenehm frisches Bier, urig! 11/10/10/11//10

bierkoning (13054) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2005
Bottle, bought at the brewery. Yes, this very much local brewery bottles his beer. 4,5% on the label. Amber color. Caramelly, buttery aroma. A clear barnyard smell. Medium bodied. Sweetish, malty, caramelly flavor. A somewhat dirty palate. Far from perfect beer, but you probabaly have to taste it from tap, like Pivnizub did. But being the designated driver, that sadly wasnt possible.

From the tap (in the brewery-garden "Keller"): Straw coloured, white, thin but long lasting head; hoppy (herbal) nose, creamy texture, low carbonation; full-bodied flavour with a smooth dry and bitter finish. Very franconian.....O.K:

Fin (10300) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2010
On tap at Brauerei Scwarzes Kreuz, Eggolsheim, during Fin and Lozs cycle ride around villages to the South and South East of Bamberg, Germany 19-06-10 Copper in colour with a white head and busy carbonation. There is some toffee in the mouth and a steady sweetness. This is quite, quite different from the really refreshing Vollbier and Lager that we had at Witzgall, its nice but a bit chewy at times.
