Bottle from Bottleworks. Honey and cough syrup aroma. Pours thick, but clear with a head that lingers. Very sweet taste, and the alcohol is more pronounced than expected. Quack-Duck (9540) - Down South, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2009
bottle, thank you pivnizub. Amber-golden yellow, large beige head. Malty nose. Full-bodied, pleasantly malty with a touch of caramel and spicy hops in the finish. Shy hint of apple present. DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 30, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2009 Bottle at Dancing Camel brewery in Tel Aviv. Thanks David C! Deep golden color. Aroma of malt and some herbal hops. Sweetish flavor at first with malt and bread, continues mildly bitter with slightly spicy and slightly herbal hops. Medium-bodied. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2009
500ml bottle, I wasn’t sure of the style but apparently it is a marzen. Nice dark orange-golden color. It has a very nice aroma of wheat bread and honey, very cool. The flavor is very bready with again, a hint of honey. This is very easy to drink and will motivate me to pick up more beers from this brewery and German beers in general.

500ml bottle. Very pleasantly surprised, for some reason I was expecting this to be average and really enjoyed it. Amber gold with fizzy white head. Clean tasting, little caramel and spice, malty and hoppy. Smooth and drinkable.

500ml bottle. Clear, deep amber with a fizzy off white head. Scads of carbonation bubbles. Lots of sweet caramel in the nose, light grain and mild grass. Sweet caramel flavor with a mild grassy bite. A light spiciness is behind all that. Medium body, just a touch syrupy considering the lively carbonation. A really nice drinker. jfb (6973) - GERMANY - JAN 4, 2009

50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small off-white/yellowish head. Mild breadish malt aroma with a note of hops. Flavour is smooth breadish malt, light caramel touch and with a medium body. Bitter hoppy refreshing and nicely balanced finish.

Bottle, purchased from the Dodgy Deli’ Cowley Road, Oxford 30-12-08 and consumed same evening. Pours reddy amber in colour with a good white foamy head. Maltiness comes through first along with some caramel and the expected clean, pure, smooth taste that you expect of a solid well respected German brewery like this. What I never expected was the occasional worrying foray into Top Deck shandy territory which this surprisngly reminded me of on the odd occasion, it always managed to pull itself back from the precipice but it did worry me at times and I had to do a double take and read and re-read the bottle to make sure that I hadn’t gone back in time to an era of tank tops, Smiths salt and shake crisps and Marathon bars. That one rather serious criticism aside, I actually enjoyed this beer and whilst I would go for the others in the Weltenburg rosta first I wouldn’t pass this by. A6 A4 F6 P3 OV12
