This bottle was well within the best by date, but still seemed off. Nice nose of spicy continental hops and German malts. pours a pretty lightly cloudy copper. A hint of smokiness in the flavor is quite nice. All that said,my bottle was nearly flat with no head at all. Would like to try this fresh.

Thnx to Aminatchime ! Pours clear, amber copper. Small white head. Smell is bit caramelly. Taste is sharp, very mild bitterness. Caramelly, tad sticky towards the aftertaste. Some residual sweetness. No real darker malts, or amber malty flavor. OK.

Silvan7 (1270) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 14, 2017
Bottle @home. ramata, velata, schiuma minimale beige grossolana, poco persistente. aroma maltato, decisamente caramellato, miele e toffee. leggermente erbacea, tostato appena accennato. gusto amabile, al limite dello stucchevole, caramellato, zuccherino, maltato. Tostatura leggera, amaro da luppolo praticamente assente. calda, più dei suoi 5% ABV, non ben amalgamati, corposa, bassissima carbonatazione, rotonda. Non del tutto equilibrata ma piuttosto armonica.

Pours dark amber from the bottle. Aroma is caramel with apple notes. Taste is an understated bittersweetness with some light watery notes on the palate. Body trends light, and the carbonation is mild. Finishes with the same pleasing caramel/apple mix that greets the nose. Despite the simplicity, a pleasant enough brew. Good.

biir (1604) - Berlin, - AUG 6, 2017
Tap at Biermeile Berlin - clear mahagony color, small reddish head. taste is maltish, bit sourish, "like blood", according to my girlfriend. dry finish. Unusual, I like it.

Michael27 (2365) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2017
Aus der Flasche im Franzl’s in Bodenmais getrunken. Gelbbraun mit viel feinem weißem Schaum im Glas. Malzig-würzig. Ungewohnt traditionell.

tgrtnr (327) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2017
500 ml served in mug. Amber colour with big fluffy foam head. Malt, ripe banana, rye bread, a bit tobacco and vanilla, and some Weizen/Dunkelweizen aromas. Malty and slightly bitter, a bit watery. Soft carbonated, medium body. Watery texture. Very unusual and traditional beer.

Ritzn (1813) - GERMANY - FEB 19, 2017
Mahagoni with no head. Aroma is yeasts, banana, flour, nuts slight spices. Taste is a bit flat sourness, less bitter nuts. Easy drinkable, but not smooth, many bubbles. However very characteristic. Enjoyable.

JK54B (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Nose malts fruits hops. Pale head. Pale copper color. Malty and fruity taste. Mild hops.

Chopper925 (591) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - OCT 25, 2016
Bottle. Clear, beautiful amber color, thick foamy head. Caramel, bread and a cookie-like aroma. Light sweet, slightly sour and medium bitter taste. Very malty, caramel aftertaste. Carbonation is a little low for my taste, but plays well with the medium texture.

ciocanelu (2957) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 24, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2016 Clear, amber color with white head. Aroma has yeast esters resembling weissbier or dunkelweizen. Taste is slightly tart at first with some toasted malt, continues with overripe banana. Finish is quite dry and astringent. Light body with low carbonation. Quite interesting but not really well put together.
