I bought this at the local toom store in Wiesbaden. There was plenty of thick white head which formed a frothy dome. The lace was about average. There was an Orange-red body. The aroma was sugary sweet. The flavor was strong in sweet malty character and honestly sat a little heavy. There was some very mild hops tone at the end. Medium bodied. Overall, a great winter beer.

The head is not stable, only a thin layer remains on top. Color was medium brown. The smell was very grainy and malt-like. Taste of malt, slight bitter and a bit of caramel, pretty ‘thick’ beer which lingers around in my mouth. Low carbonation and cleanliness of low fermentation yeast.
Aftertaste is bitter, and leaves a long aftertaste of caramel. This is a very good German beer.

Pours a coppery amber with a generous slightly off white head that stays awhile. Malty flavor with some hop flavor. Very good winterbier. Recommended!

Deep copper color, white foam, quite beautiful, but quickly falling down.
Malty smell, quite easy.
Again a good maltiness in the taste, with light biscuit notes, and a finishing hop.
After a little warming, some honey notes, not invading, rises up.
After all, quite well balanced.
Good maltiness, pleasant, with a balancing hop.
The aftrtaste starts malty, with strong biscuitnotes, then a good hop.
