Bottle from State Line. Pours hazy deep copper with 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of heavy Wheaties dipped in almond, with some toffee and mild spicy hop notes. The palate was medium heft, with flavors of grainy malty Wheaties, some caramelly toffee-like hints, and mild fruit and hop notes. Gets a bit more tart and hoppy as it warms.

Bottle: Copper coloured, thin, fluffy off-white head; malty nose (caramel&faint traces of molasses) with a touch of aromatic(!) hops; slightly sweetish malty taste in the beginning, becoming quickly dryer in the mouth; mild bitter flavour; malty and fruity finish with a moderate bitterness; well balanced, well drinkable ! leaparsons (10499) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2005
Red/brown with a small white head. Aromas are sweet malty and doughy with hints of fruit. Flavours are sweet and malty with a roast character, bready dough and some smokiness coming through. Has rich winter fruit, quite Xmassy. Quite light on the finish but all up to that point is very good. KimJohansen (10492) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2008
Clear deep golden with a medium off white head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of caramel. Sweet flavour with berries, caramel, toasted malt and hoppy notes that gave it a bitter finish. Fin (10470) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2008
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.

Warm amber with a nice head. The aroma is malty with notes of grain and caramel. The flavour is malty, slightly sweet with notes of grain and caramel and a light bitterness. Perhaps a bit monotonous, but OK. 2026
